Obviously, the book buying ban lasted about 43 seconds. This is why any diet and exercise regiment never work out well for me. I can never stick to anything. My lack of self control is famous around these parts of world, yanno?

Do I smell fresh paint?

You know what else I’m known for? Spontaneity (more like, impulsiveness). I’m serious. Last week, as I was trolling Goodreads, I found Carmel of Rabid Reads (awesome blogger extraordinaire)! She mentioned on her profile that she offers web master services to bloggers. So I figure, I’d ask her about it and see how she can help my blog transition to being self-hosted (FINALLY). She was awesome! And patient. We hit a bit of a snag, but hey. I’m finally self hosted! *throws confetti* So yeah, you may notice the blog changed a bit, and this is all thanks to Carmel. I wanted to keep the same design as my former one, and thankfully, Carmel was able to replicate it.

I haven’t had a chance to check out all the cool plugins I can play around with, but I’m looking forward to bedazzling the shizz out of my blog.

Read any good books lately?

Mrs. Poe and Sweet Tooth were unremarkable. The Darkest Minds was inexcusable. When the World was Flat (And We Were in Love) was inexplicable.

I’m down to the last book on my winter reading list. I can’t believe I actually stuck through it. There’s hope for me yet. Ha.  I can probably round up some more books that need some lovin’ from their owner, so look forward to another set of five books I’m dying to read before the year is out. What a great way to dust off neglected books on my TBR!

In the next week or so, come back and check out my interview with the husband in a segment that I dubbed At Home with a Book Addict. I hope he’ll agree to let me put up his picture. 🙂

I’ll be around to visit your blogs later.
