How Stacking the Shelves works!
Hello everyone! It's that time of week again, that time to do an awesome "SHOW AND TELL" of the books I have been given, from authors, from publishers, I bought, borrowed, or received somehow, the library, a yard sale, or some way this past week! I LOVE showing books off like this! This is one of MY favorite posts to write!!
I also use THIS POST EACH WEEK to do somewhat of a wrap-up AND to post my NEW REVIEWS, NEW GIVEAWAYS, and whatever else I should bring to your attention!
After you are done reading HERE, click on the Sponsor's name up above and see THEIR post for Stacking the Shelves, too! They have a link-up with OVER 100-200 other blogs that also participate!
I'm also finding OTHER PLACES TO LINK UP TO AS WELL! I'm finding these places from other blogs, and they are GREAT ideas! The following NEW one is Talk of the Town where we can add ALL THINGS BOOKISH! Check it out!
It is LATE in the year ALREADY to be talking about goal setting, but I AM going to talk about it! Ahhhhh, the fresh start of a new year! HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!! 2017!!! So have you set your goals yet? I have set a few, very few, but a few!!! You all know I have been swimming 3-4 times per week for exercise, to lose weight and for my physical therapy, and my doctor is ELATED it is working!!! YEAH!!! I've made her happy, and that makes ME happy!! You know how MUCH I LOVEEEEE swimming!!! How convenient that swimming is the ONLY type of workout I am able to do! I LOVEEEEE it!!! I have ALWAYS loved swimming, and I am able to take advantage of this GREAT SPORT to help my neurological muscle disease, Stiff Person Syndrome! Speaking of that:
Rare Disease Day IS COMING UP ON FEBRUARY 28th!!! I WILL HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT POSTED THAT DAY TO HELP YOU OUT AS MUCH AS I CAN! Scientists AND DOCTORS are learning that these so-called "rare diseases" are being under diagnosed because the doctors flat-out don't know about them. Oh, they DID see them in their textbooks while in Medical School, but NO TIME IS SPENT ON LEARNING ABOUT "ANY" OF THESE! I FEEL THAT IS SO WRONG! By having days like this one that is coming, Rare Disease Day, it helps bring awareness to these what are known as orphan diseases. You'll learn about that name, too! Perhaps by bringing MORE awareness, doctors will learn more and be WILLING to learn more! That is a whole other problem! Not ALL doctors are willing and open to learning about NEW diseases. That is a calamity! I wish that NEVER happens to ANY one of you!
Oh!!! One more thing I need to tell you!!! I have joined the 50 Mile Club!! It's a competition against yourself! You pay $10 to join, then you MUST swim 50 miles! I currently have 19 miles swam! Yes! I have a year to do it, (just in case the spasms set in) and I WILL do this! When you complete the 50 miles, you WIN A T-SHIRT!!!! I will be a part of a select FEW who have participated this year - so far! Speaking of that, it IS a GOAL!
How are your goals you have set for yourself for the NEW YEAR SO FAR??? How about for the month of January so far? Still keeping to those goals you set at the beginning of the year? I HOPE so!! I'm just checking in with you because usually by now, the end of January, many of you are off track! Recheck your goals and make sure you are on track!
Back to the books! I still have to post 5 more reviews to reach my goal of books read for 2016! It's been HARD since I've been working SO HARD swimming! The fatigue has been TREMENDOUS! It's getting better and better ALL the time! I try. That is the BEST I can say! I will never be like everyone else, but WHO wants to be like everyone else? NOT ME!!! I want to be my OWN individual, and I am! It takes me double the time that it takes everyone else to do things, but that's okay! I'm DOING IT! YOU CAN, TOO! GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR GOALS!
GIVEAWAYS: ROMANCE IS IN THE AIR $250 #CASH #GIVEAWAY! Yes! Another excellent entry form for a chance to win $250 CASH!!! Read the fine print for MORE details!! These are always fun and a GREAT WAY to find NEW blogs you'll enjoy reading!! To enter this go ahead and CLICK HERE!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!!
