Bloggers and Publishers have the same goals, to bring in readers. This Conference is to discuss what is working online to promote books and what we can do better. How can we work together and with authors to bring readers online? What are Publishers goals in working with Bloggers? What are Bloggers and Reviewers looking for? Join us for panels, discussions and giveaways. This is the 2nd annual Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Conference that is hosted by Terry Kate of Romance in the Backseat as well as several other book bloggers.
How the Conference Works: This is a five day online event that will feature TalkShoe Discussion Panels and open Forums for more inclusive debate on subjects raised. Attendees can listen to panels live or using the links provided at a later more convenient time. The Forums will remain open and those speaking on the panels will be in the forums afterward to answer questions. The Forums will be held in a private Ning for the Conference.

So can you believe it I’m blogging again in the space of 2 days. Well I just needed to rant my frustration out to someone today about why I am seriously thinking of never ordering online from Barnes and Noble since they are now using this delivery service called Argix Direct which uses the USPS to deliver the packages. The USPS lately has been very bad in delivering my packages from both Barnes and Noble as well as from other people, which is not good at all. I use to get all of my packages delivered on time when it was scheduled to be delivered when they use to use UPS all the time to get their packages to their customers. Don’t get me wrong I love Barnes and Noble but they are really getting horrible in their customer service since the Nook came out. I will be going to the post office and complaining about not getting my package when they say it was delivered with a notice left to pick it up. I never got a notice about picking it up and the time they said they delivered it my mom was at home and nobody rang the doorbell to deliver the package.
Well wish me luck about getting my books back from the post office because otherwise I will be asking for a full damn refund from Barnes and Noble who have already charged me for it.
|This is a light blond me.
Can you tell the difference?
So I know that I have been a very bad girl and haven’t been a good blogger or book reviewer since I haven’t posted anything since October of 2010 and it’s now almost February 2011. Ever since I got my first job at Modell’s Sporting Goods store I have been very lazy about posting my reviews of the books I’ve read when I use to post them all the time previously. Also for the new year I dyed my hair a light blond color that most people say looks better on me than my natural dark brown hair did because this color makes me look like less pale so that it gives me a tanned look.
Now it’s 2011 and I want to get back to being the book blogger and reviewer that I use to be so though it going to take some time I will be posting my book reviews on all the books I’ve been recently reading. I recently got a NOOKcolor for myself as a Christmas present so I’ve been reading a lot of eBooks as well as the print books that I can’t help but still buy to read. I’ve also taken the 2011 Book Challenge that is going on Goodreads and I have set myself up to read a goal of 600 books this year.
I’ve recently found a lot of good authors that I’ve decided to add to my wishlist on my NOOKcolor for when I have enough extra cash to buy them. I hope to one day get all the books on my NOOKcolor wishlist but it going to take time since I’m paid minimum wage at my job and the hours they give me as a part-timer isn’t all that great with all the taxes taken out. I hope when I finally do my first taxes this year that I will be getting at least 10% of my gross pay which was about $4,000 though my mom tells me I’m only dreaming.
As many of my loyal readers have guessed I haven’t been very active with posting book reviews, author interviews or author guest blogs these past couple of weeks. I posted that I got a job during the summer and it’s been taking a large part of my time that reading my books for pleasure doesn’t. Then at the beginning of October my mom and me had to start packing all of our stuff because we were moving into a new apartment that we would be sharing with my grandmother and one of my aunts. So all this month I’ve been dreading moving because I have almost 2,000 books to pack and try to find out how I’m going to get them all situated into the new apartment with out getting rid of any that I couldn’t live with out.
Well I’m finally moved into the new apartment and I know that it will take a very long time to adjust to it. I don’t have easy access to the internet right now since I have to share the DSL with my aunt’s desktop computer since we don’t have wireless right not though we are trying to work it out. So I wanted to warn everyone that I’ll try to post book reviews as soon as possible because I have read a few books that I need to review soon. I will also be keeping up with what I’m currently reading on Shelfari, Goodreads and Barnes & Noble if anyone is interested in following me on there.

Francesca Brazen is working the night shift when her brother-in-law’s sexy foreman checks into the lodge. She has trouble hiding her interest in him. Can she get involved with a man she doesn’t know? After finding him naked in the hall, she’s willing to give it a try. A no-strings affair with a guy who will be leaving town in three weeks will be the craziest thing she’s ever done.
Hal Cummings checks into the lodge, wanting to do nothing more than spend the next three weeks visiting with his buddies and avoiding his stepmother. He needs a few weeks where he doesn’t have to make any decisions. Not hearing his stepmother harp about him settling down and having kids is a big bonus. Meeting Frankie sends that plan straight to hell. Now all he wants to do is spend it in bed with her.
