This week flew amidst festivities, lights and lots of cooking. We had a festival called Diwali or Deepavali which literally translates to festival of lights.
We Indians generally make a huge deal of it with loads of fireworks, lights, feasts and of course new clothes.
And it is a little hard to be away from my family this time of the year but I tried to make the best of it. Look at those pretty lights that I snagged in my room for the occasion.
I also kept myself pretty distracted with a bit of DIY projects during the week. I guess the productive bee struck me again. *knocks wood*
What I read this week:
I didn’t read anything at all except for the books that I am beta reading. So technically I am reading, but they are not going on my count, right?
What I watched this week:
I watched not too much of TV this week and when I did watch I made sure I was doing something useful as well. So I guess I was good after all.
How did I not know about the Disney movie Kuzco? And I am surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did. Maybe the only thing I enjoyed on Netflix this week.
On the blog:
A quick recap of the past week for those who might have missed.
On Sunday we gave up and accepted that fall is done already.
We brought back on Monday the review shots with three hyped books.
On Wednesday we discussed plot holes and inconsistencies.
Flyaway Friday is back and we are all pepped up to fly off to Italy!
Around the blogosphere
I possibly caught up with most of you all this week, thanks to last week’s fail. And here are my favorite posts from all around the blog world.
- Here are a new set of comics about book lovers to obsess over from Buzzfeed.
- Have you ever tried to remember that word and recall every word associated with it, except the one you need? I have and you should try Visuwords (visual words, you see!).
- With the success of Blogoween Clo from Bookdragon and Sam are back with another event schedule. Catch up Bookend event post for more info.
- Briana from Pages Unbound posted a thought provoking discussion on getting non bloggers to follow your book blog.
I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme.
