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 plan on reading in the coming week.

Meanwhile, in Amanda’s World
- It was a weird week. I ended my semester, but because I had a day off on Wednesday, I got all confused about what day it was. I’m still not quite sure, to be honest.
- Doin’ It Dirty was on Friday, and it was a BLAST. I ended up not being on Twitter as much as I thought I would, but I made up for it with lots of reading. And painting my nails.
- I’m now committed to working on building my business through the end of the year. Cross your fingers for me!
- My birthday is on Wednesday! I have plans to enjoy it.
Around the Book Blogging Community
The end of the semester craziness (combined with the continued drama in the blogosphere) has led me to step back from blogging this week, which is why this section is pitiful.
- Sarah (saz101) and Becca from Reading Wishes will be hosting Author Appreciation August. Check out the details, and help spread the word.
- Rachel from Fiktshun talks about working with a blog design professional on the Bloggers Corner blog.
- This week’s free audiobook downloads from Audiobook Sync are Antony and Cleopatra by William Shakespeare and Cleopatra’s Moon by Vicky Alvear Shecter.
- Sarah (saz101) wrote about why she loves the book blogging community.
