When Google announced that they would be shuttering Google Reader, I of course flipped out and frantically looked around for something else, settling on Feedly. Well, I have now discovered that Feedly does not have a search function (although at one point it did because I used it) and it is speculated that one would only be available in a paid version. I'm not shelling out for that. Bloglovin' also does not have search from what I can tell. All I want is to be able to search through old posts as I enjoy linking to other reviews but that seems to be difficult for some reason. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I did not officially participate in the Dewey Readathon but I did my own unofficial reading, completing 3 books as well as the next section of War and Peace. I also wrote most of my reviews for this week (will finish the rest today), did some commenting (have more planned for today), and got started on the next round of reading.
Books Received: From the publisher courtesy of Amazon Vine
Confederates Don't Wear Couture by Stephanie Kate Strohm-the sequel to Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink, a book I adored
The Program by Suzanne Young-I've seen some positive reviews already so am excited to dive in
I know I keep talking about this but it's been one of my favorite things! I don't want to bore the people in my real life so I'm going to talk to you and you can just skip over it if you're bored. We had our last regular season game this Thursday...and we won, ending up in third place and we're going to the playoffs next week. We're facing the team we lost to the previous week but it was only by one run and we had some bad luck (example, one of our batters hit one of our runners-the umpire said he'd never seen that in ten years of umping!) We could definitely make it through but either way, I'm just having so much fun and am pleased we'll be having a summer season!
I'm also organizing custom tees for the team and have been looking at different sites. So far I'm liking CustomInk.com but wanted to know if you've had any experiences with any sites. We'll have maybe 15 shirts to order for both men and women and just want something basic.
Week to Come:
The Reluctant Assassin by Eoin Colfer
15 Days Without a Head by Dave Cousins
(Fun fact: these are both international authors, being Irish and British respectively.)
Wednesday is the first of the month, which means the next section of War and Peace is due-I'm so proud of myself for keeping up!
Escape Theory by Margeaux Froley, contemporary mystery set at a boarding school...um, I'm there
Reboot by Amy Tintera, this comes from HarperTeen-enough said!
His Majesty's Hope by Susan Elias MacNeal, the third book in what has rapidly become one of my favorite mystery series.
