Book Babble: Updates, Giveaways, and More

I thought managing the blog while in law school was hard but it wasn't.  It only took time management skills (ONLY!).  Managing the blog in my new lawyer role is completely different and I'm still trying to figure it out so please bare with me.  In law school, I was on the computer 24/7, whether I was taking and reviewing notes, reading, studying, or outlining, my computer was right there.  It was nothing for me to pick up my computer during a study break and comment on a few blogs.  THAT LIFE IS OVER!  Now I'm running around court rooms, waiting for hearings (without hearings), and attending happy hours :) and when I get home, I don't want to touch my computer.  I'm getting reading in, I'm just not blogging about it.  I'm hoping to find some kind of balance soon.  I miss being consistent.  That used to be a source of pride for me.

A HUGE shout out to Alysia from My Little Pocketbooks and Mocha Girls Read for my care package straight from BEA.  Who does that?!  Really!  I'm so grateful for the wonderful books.  I was planning to go to BEA but it didn't work out but it felt good knowing that I was thought of.  I can't wait to dig in.

I've moved.  Again.  I'm back in Austin because the Hubby got a new job.  This is the last move for a long time.  Promise.

In other news, my brother (who some of you will remember was in a horrible accident a couple a while back) is back on his own for the first time since his accident.  I'm so happy and excited for him.  Luckily we are still in the same city so I can check on him.

I have giveaway winners!  Let's not talk about how long it took me to pick winners and focus on all the free books going out.  Congrats to these winners who participated in the New Layout Giveaway, the Giveaway Celebrating Edit Ink, and by Giveaway Hop.

I've got so many blog posts, reviews, and exciting new events... in my head.  Hopefully, I can pull it out of my head through my fingers and unto the blog.  One day!  Ta-ta for now :)

  1. I know... life gets tough. I just came back from a REALLY LONG vacation from blogging because life just was way too busy to commit to the blog, even though I was still reading!

  6. Good luck figuring out your time for blogging and balancing it with all the other things you want/have to do. Glad to hear your brother is doing better!

  7. I am so happy to hear your brother is doing well. I've thought about him and wondered and then would forget to ask.

    Your life sounds so busy! I'm sure you'll find an even balance sooner or later. Thankfully you're still finding some time to relax with a book.

  8. Glad to hear things are going so well for you right now. THat is such a generous box of books they sent you from BEA too. I'd also love to go but don't see how I can, at least in the intermediate future.

  9. Hey there! Sorry it has taken me FOREVER to comment on your blog. I have just started blogging again and I soo missed it! I understand about the long delay. LOL! Glad you enjoyed the box of books. I am going to go next year and I think I will do a giveaway from BEA to one lucky winner. There are so many books there it's unreal! Next year?
