The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
What happened this week?
This was a pretty decent week. I got plenty of work done this week and was kept busy with both tour work and assistant work. We took a walk in a nearby park with my boyfriend’s parents for a visit as that’s safer than inside a house. We all wore our masks too. It was a bit chilly, but besides that a nice day. And it was a nice way to catch up and have a relatively safe visit this way. I video chatted with my mom later in the week, which has been a nice way to keep in touch.
My back is doing better mostly, but there are still a few movements that I can’t do yet. I hope it continues to improve.
I’ve been busy with tour work for Lola’s Blog Tours this week, which makes me happy. I put two new sign-up posts live this week, one for a urban fantasy book with demons review opportunity and one for a blog tour for a ghost fiction series. I’ve got plenty of tours and review opportunities open at the moment. I also got some hours of assistant work done.
I tried my new ergonomic vertical mouse this week and I love it! I thought it would take some time to get used to it and that it would difficult to switch, but it wasn’t. I got used to it within an hour or so, after switching some settings for mouse speed and such so that it felt better. It’s much easier on my arm and wrist and it’s so comfortable and more intuitive than a normal mouse for me. I wish I had known before how awesome this would work as I would’ve switched much earlier. I can definitely recommend it. It’s also a very nice texture. It’s soft, but too smooth, so my hand doesn’t glides off. I am so glad I decided to give this a try. Although I did bump into once or twice this week as I am still getting used to the fact that this mouse is higher than my previous one.
We’ve been making progress updating my computer’s drivers, so far the problem hasn’t been resolved yet, but there are still quite a few to go. We try to space them apart so we can detect any additional problems or when something works. I also keep track of most things as well in case something goes wrong.
Unrelated to my computer issues, I also ran into a software problem recently where the program stops working every time it updates and then I have to reinstall it, so that works, but it’s a bit of a pain to have to reinstall it every time after an update. I haven’t found out yet what causes it. so for now I just reinstall it every time it decides to update.
What did I read this week?
I also finished the non-fiction book Killer Subject Lines which was a great read about newsletter subject lines. It was short, but filled with information. The Amethyst Panda was an awesome sequel! I really liked this one, seeing how the story continued and how Sam deals with everything, there are plenty of epic monster battles as well. I am almost done with some of my current reads, so I hope to finish those soon.

I had quite the book haul this week. Delivering Evil for Experts, The KC Warlock Weekly and Learned Behaviors I got for review. Then I bought two new releases, Songs of Blood and A Stitch in Time. I couldn’t resists that non-fiction book Creating Character ARCs. And then later in the week I spotted a sale for both Boyfriend Material and Songflight, which both were on my wishlist, so i grabbed those too.
