The Relentless Weekly Wrap-Up 10/06/13

I had a fantastic week of reading:

The Courtiers by Lucy Worsley
Don’t Hurry me Down to Hades by Susannah Ural
Writers Between the Covers by Joni Rendon & Shannon McKenna Schmidt
Hippie Boy by Ingrid Ricks
The Invisible Wall by Harry Bernstein

Hey, every single one of those are nonfiction. I just realized that this second.

Currently Reading:

Surprise! I’m reading November’s Fury by Michael Schumacher. Yet another nonfiction book!


I’ll be reading on a whim. I’m going to browse my local library, scroll through the books on my Kindle, and see what I have sitting on my shelves.

Other Business:

I shared my September Wrap-Up here.
I’ve been walking, walking, walking…thanks to The Geeky Book Blogger!

I’m very much looking forward to Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! It is seriously the most fun to be had. Are you participating?

Another fun event I’ll be participating in is the Literary Blog Hop hosted by Judith at Leeswammes’ Blog.

Did you all have a good week? What’s up in your life? Tell me, I’m nosy!

  1. Oooh. I'm doing the walking thing too. I think reading books makes us a sedentary lot, so this is a great way to get us out and moving!


  2. Woooooo NON-FICTION! You are on a roll, lady!That 30 mins for 30 days challenge sounds really fun! I wish I had heard of it earlier, it might have given me more motivation to get off my ass this week, lol. I mean, I was kiiiind of busy, but I could have fit it in if I had really wanted to. I'm hoping to get to the gym more this week, even though I'm working more than last week. Cause I do things that make sense…. (not).


  3. You had another fabulous week! What did you think of The Courtiers? It sounds fascinating. I'm not participating in the readathon given it's Thanksgiving here next weekend and so I'll be stuffing myself with turkey and pumpkin pie rather than reading LOL, but I will participate one of these days. BTW — I bought Burial Rites since you recommended it so highly 🙂


  4. Well, to be honest, I'm stuck on reading a bit, but I'm doing well otherwise. Thanks for asking. 🙂 Today, I'm working on reading Sunday blog posts from my favorite book bloggers (hmmm, what am I doing here? 😉 ) and then a project for the Book Bloggers Do It Better Google Plus community. Book blogging today, but sadly, probably not time for reading.


  5. I'm on my second non-fiction book of the past week … I *rarely* read non-fiction, so it's very strange! The Invisible Wall looks really good! Yay for the Dewey read-a-thon! I wish I could participate but I doubt I'll last 24 hours what with being preggo and all. Maybe I'll try and participate for some of the day! Have a good week!


  6. The Courtiers was probably my favorite of the week Melissa 😀 I think you would really, really like it! Ah yes, I think we chatted about your Thanksgiving on Twitter. Rats! Maybe you'll be able to do the April readathon :DI cannot wait to hear what you think of Burial Rites! I hope you like it as much as I did!


  7. Ooh, The Courtiers looks v. interesting. I love that kind of stuff and await your feedback. Also, v much lkg fwd to Dewey's Readathon! C u there!!


  8. Ooh The Courtiers looks like one for me. I like non fiction as long as it's not a dry old chew?? I love Dewey's Readathon, don't think I'll be participating this year, but have fun!


  9. I've never participated in a readathon, but just the other day a friend of mine (not a blogger) said we must do a readathon, so I will definitely tell her about it!PS I'm off to check out The Courtiers, I like that cover!


  10. November's Fury looks awesome!!! I am anxiously awaiting your review! No pressure though. Lol. Random fact about my life – I was born right after the Edmund Fitzgerald sank, and when my mom was leaving the hospital with me, she could hear the bells ringing at Mariner's Church in Detroit in memory of those lives lost.


  11. It's a good one so far 😀 Reading it made me think of the Fitzgerald, of course. That's a creepy cool memory Erin, love it! One of the coolest things about this book is the mention of all of the cities around Lake Superior that I know well.


  12. Writers Between the Covers sounds completely amazing! I'm reading something similar at the moment that focuses on the relationship of women writers in the 20th Century. It's so gossipy I love it. May have to check this one out too. Looks like you've had another excellent reading week 😀


  13. The Courtiers looks like something I would love. Hope you have a great week, I'm excited for the readathon this weekend. It's a long weekend here so I'm hoping that I'll be able to go longer than 24 hours!


  14. I am so impressed that you read that much nonfiction in one week! Nonfiction always seems to take me longer than a good novel. See you at the Readathon! 🙂
