Kia Ora!

This month SharleneSays turned 1.
***Happy Blogiversary*** and thanks for sticking with me. I know posts haven’t been very forthcoming. There was a death in the family so I was out of town for a few weeks. I tried to take part in Dewey’s #readathon while I was away from home. Library books were waaaay overdue. To top it all off, I’ve been in a long reading slump. Check out my reading list here.

In Bookish news,
1. For our 1st blogiversary, I ran a giveaway, hoping to find more ideas for my #dayzero project, 101 Bookish Things in 1001 Days. Congratulations to…

People had some really great ideas. I’ve added most. I know I’m going to struggle, especially with the Rory Gilmore Challenge. I don’t know why I added that? But what’s a Project without a little Challenge!

2. I discovered @CrushYourTBR, a monthly 3 day readathon. I haven’t participated yet as the last one was reduced to 24 hours but I’m looking forward to testing my reading skills. Goodbye reading slumps! Hello reading sprints.

In Not So Bookish news,
3. I’m part of a working group for a music, cultural, christian festival. Things are still a little hush but keep an eye out for #gospelroots. Announcements are just around the corner.

That’s all from me this week. I’ll be back next with with a book review.

final love sharlene
