I’m still in Switzerland, but here’s what’s been going on with the blog during the last few weeks (hooray for post scheduling!). I’ll be back soon to catch up on comments and such. What have you all been up to?

    • Thank you so much, that’s great! My design is actually by Stephanie of These Paper Hearts (although I did tweak her tweaks slightly). πŸ™‚

  1. Wow, looks like you got a lot of fun reading done this past month! I do really like these Wrap Up Posts – it’s fun to see what bloggers did all month, PLUS you can find really cool new to you blogs.

  2. Oh… Switzerland! Eat lots of chocolate for me! I like how you set this up… I set mine up very different… hmm…. I’ll have to ponder this for awhile. Thanks for the post.

    • I’m back now actually (shh, don’t tell anyone…) And yes, we brought back a whole lot of chocolate!

      I think there are lots of ways to do the wrap-up posts. I just thought about what things I wanted to keep track of personally, as well as to share with my readers. I’ll be interested to see how other bloggers do theirs.

  3. I like the bullet point style. I’m long-winded, so it would probably be good for me to adopt that instead. I also liked you sharing some of your favorite posts from other bloggers. There is never enough time to read the entire internet, so it’s always nice to have people say, “Here, take a look at this,” and give me something to focus on.

  4. Wish I was in Switzerland! Lucky duck! πŸ˜‰
    You read sooooo many books! WOW! Great job!
    Happy August reading!
