Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is where Tara @ 25 Hour Books and I shamelessly plug each other, share the fantastic posts, giveaways, or whatever else we’ve found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books we received that week.
On a Book Bender Recap
- Review: That Voodoo You Do by Jodi Redford — Outside comfort zone, yet so good!
- Top Off Tuesday — #GutterPass This
- Review: A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole — Another series to get lost in.
- Hounded Read-Along: THE LAST WEEK! Watch for something special Friday, though!
Meanwhile, in Amanda’s World
- I’ve been going hardcore with Bloggiesta! I’ve already updated my reviews page, my review policy page, I added an appearances page, moved some sidebar items to their own page, deleted some of my widgets on the side bar AND gave Kelly her own about page, which she still needs to fill out. Huzzah!
- The plans for my blogoversary celebration have begun! If you still would like to do something (anything!) let me know! It doesn’t have to be a guest post.
- I’m on the hunt for audiobooks. I recently listened to Hexed and Hammered by Kevin Hearne on audiobooks and LOVED the experience. I need to get my hands on more. And I need to be able to put it on my mp3, as my car doesn’t have a CD player, nor do I. Suggestions?
- I finally FINALLY! managed to get myself stuck in Twitter jail. I tried to do it with the last Bout of Books and failed. But Bloggiesta did it for me. It was AWESOME.

Looking for Associate Reviewers
Helpful Bloggiesta Posts!
- Small Review has a fabulous list of all the helpful blogging tips and tricks posts she’s done. I used the named attribution jumps one to spruce up my reviews page.
- Sockets and Lightbulbs posted about promoting your blog on Facebook
- Bookalicious posted about the top 10 HTML basics. I knew these already, but they’re still good to share.
- The Reading Fever had a mini-challenge for cleaning up your sidebar! I loved this one, and ended up getting rid of some of my widgets on the side.
- If you’re self-hosted WP (like me), this post on Jenni Elyse has a lot of good plugin suggestions in the comments
- The Book Vixen talks about backing up your blog. (Blogger specific)
- Jacinda wrote about Windows Live Writer. It’s not really necessary for WP, but if you have Blogger, definitely check it out!
3 Star Rating Event
- Geeky Blogger’s Book Blog
- Nyx Book Reviews
- Both of these lovely ladies agree that 3 is a good rating (as do I). Who disagrees?
- Felicia talked about how her blog doesn’t necessarily reflect her love of mysteries, and I think my blog suffers the same kind of problem! I, too, want to start reading some more mysteries.
- Book Lovers, Inc. had a discussion post on love triangles. LOVE TRIANGLES!
- Ruby is looking for people to sign up for her debate team.
- Ashley @ The Bookish Brunette and Alexa @ Pages of Forbidden Love started a new feature where they swap blogs and review a book the other recommend. I thought it was awesome! Ashley was at Pages of Forbidden Love reviewing The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (LOVE!) and Alexa reviewed The First Days at The Bookish Brunette.
