Weekly Round Up (06.17.12)
These were my 5 most listened to tunes from the last week, according to last.fm:
I haven’t been listening to a lot of music, and I know that’s party because I’ve started watching youtube videos while I do data entry-type work, of which I’ve had lots to do lately. But I think it’s also because I’m in desperate need of new tunes. So, if you have any recommendations, please recommend away!
Last weekend I went to the Fierce Reads stop in Bellingham, featuring Anna Banks, Leigh Bardugo, Jennifer Bosworth, and Emmy Laybourne, plus Lish McBride and Marissa Meyer. It was a great line up, so I was a bit surprised at the small turn out, but that probably had something to do with them stopping in Seattle the day before. (They really should have just taken the extra hour and come up to Vancouver.)
I only bought one book at the event – the lovely paperback version of Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride- but I also got my copy of Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo signed.
And, of course, there are the books I brought back from BEA:
