August has been a busy month at Amused By Books headquarters but it sure has been fun! In case you missed it, here's what I've been up to all month:
- Blame it on the dog days of Summer (or the chilly San Francisco one's) but I think I've read the most books in one month so far this year this August. The books I've read this month are: The Condition by Jennifer Haigh, The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood, Mackenzie Blue by Tina Wells, The Blind Contessa's New Machine by Carey Wallace, Mackenzie Blue: The Secret Crush by Tina Wells, The Book of Unholy Mischief by Elle Newmark, Mackenzie Blue: Friends Forever? by Tina Wells, and Leaving the World by Douglas Kennedy. My favorite book from this month is definitely The Book of Unholy Mischief. What was your favorite book from August?
- I also attended an author chat with the fabulous Jennifer Weiner at one of my favorite San Francisco independant book stores. If you ever get the chance to hear her talk, I highly recommend it!
- I was on Blog Talk Radio being interviewed by the fabulous Nicole of Linus's Blanket! Oh boy I was so excited and it went off without a hitch! If you ever want to listen again you always can :)
- I gushed about how much I love book shelving...twice and you all agreed! Look at these beautiful photos again to be inspired!
- I participated in a fun Guest Post over at The Book on the Hill called Book Blogging Around the World where I got to talk about all of my travels and what it's like to be a book blogger in California. So much fun!
- One of the highlights of my August was going to the California Book Bloggers Lunch in Santa Barbara. It was a blast to get to chat with all of these lovely ladies! We hope to do it again soon!
- August was a big month for me in another way because I reached the huge milestone of gaining 100 followers to my blog and I am thanking you all. So if you haven't yet signed up for my 100+ Followers Giveaway don't forget to do so by end of day Thursday! You'll get a chance to win a $25 gift card to one of three book stores!
