Sunday Afternoon Visits: July 8

I must admit that recently I've felt more like reading books that reading blogs. It's not that I don't enjoy reading blogs, but I'm trying to re-read the Harry Potter books before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows comes out (I just finished The Goblet of Fire, Book 4, this week). I'm also caught up in John Marsden's Tomorrow series (about a group of teens who escape capture when their country is taken over by invaders, and try to stay free, and disrupt the occupying forces). And of course I have other books that I'm dying to get to from my "to be reviewed" stack, too many to even list here.

I'm reading the Harry Potter books just because. Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock will understand. I'm reading the Marsden books for the upcoming "One Shot World Tour: Australia", to be brought to you on August 15th by Colleen Mondor and the folks from the Summer Blog Blast Tour. Colleen says: "That day will be devoted to writing about Aussie authors and we do hope other blogs will join in our project. (Adult authors, YA, MG, comics, picture books - whatever - all genres, all formats, all ages welcome.) If you'd like to post on an Australian author on August 15th do let me know a few days before so I can be sure to get a link to your site." I hope that some of you will participate.

But I think that it's mostly a midsummer thing - I just feel like lying on the couch reading books all day. That said, I do have a few other blog links for your perusal.

OK, so that's more than a few links. Happy reading! It's been great catching up with you. Now I'll get back to my reading.
