Christina at A Reader of Fictions talked in this blog post about the importance of responding to comments. I don't usually respond for a couple of reasons:
1. I never remember to check back at a blog post where I commented unless I leave a very specific question that I want an answer to so I figure some others are like me too.
2. I worry that it looks like I'm trying to inflate my comments as that automatically doubles my comment count.
3. Sometimes it is honestly lack of time.
However this past week I have set aside a few minutes each night to respond to comments from Tuesday onward so if you want to look at that, you can!
I adore award shows so I'm looking forward to watching the Academy Awards tonight. I love the dresses and am interested in how Seth McFarlane does as host.

Week to Come:
Monday is adult focusing on the romantic historical comedy The Duke Diaries by Sophia Nash, book 3 of her Royal Entourage series.
Tuesday is Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell-did this historical (set in 1983!) tickle my buttons? (spoiler alert on goodreads-friend me!)
Wednesday is Legacy of the Clockwork Key by Kristin Bailey
Thursday is Lindsey Leavitt's Going Vintage; she's one of my favorite authors so this has been highly anticipated!
Then we end the week with Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality by Elizabeth Eulberg, another beloved author.
Saturday brings us the second day of a new month, which means my discussion post about the next section of War and Peace will go live (Have I finished the reading? Not as of this writing but that will be a priority for me.)
