Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge {02}

Other Bookish Posts

Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge was created by Amanda of On a Book Bender and Tara of 25 Hour Books  to shamelessly plug each other, share the fantastic posts, giveaways, or whatever else they found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books they received that week and plan on reading in the coming week.

This week on Gone with the Words…

What’s the Word in Jess’s World…

houseIf you haven’t seen me mention it on Twitter, my fiancé and I bought a house! Here’s a picture:

And moving has been a slow process that has take my energy and and my desire to read. Last night was the first time I read anything since May 1st! I’m hoping that slump is over.


ALSO! Once I’m all moved in I plan to start working out because I need to! I’m excited and nervous! I’ve bought a cardio workout that looks really extreme and fun:turbofire(Click the picture to see youtube video of program)

    I’m seconding Amanda on the new house. Congrats! That has to be SO exciting! And good for you for making a plan to start working out. I need to work exercise back into my routine. I used to be so good at it, but it’s always the first thing that gets dropped when life gets crazy. 

  2. Jac @ Forloveandbooks

    Your house is super cute! Congratulations!! (And YAY for not having to move again for a very long time!!)

    Good haul this week, I have to go check out your Kindle deals!

    Happy reading! =D

    For a few seconds I thought the Hogarth bag said “Hogwarts” and I was all ready to be REALLY jealous, lol. Congrats on the new house, and good luck with moving! That can definitely be difficult.

  5. LetyRoxtar

    Love the new place friend!!! <3 Congrats again! And yay for being neighbors! :D

  6. Lisa@Read.Breathe.Relax.

    Thanks for the blogging love!! :) Also, I JUST moved into a house too. I hope the process goes smoothly for you. It’s a stressful time and I totally took a break from reading too. No worries!

    LOVE your new house!  Are you going to invite us over for a movie night?  Oh wait, we’re not your real friends :-P

    Hmm, I guess it’s nice to know someone out there thinks I’m sexy.  I mean, I’m sexy and I know it, but still.  How nice. :-)

  8. Sarah B.

    Congrats on your house! Moving takes over your life! Hope you get settled in soon.

    As for the books, I’m excited to read the Philippa Gregory. I’ve read her adult books, so definitely have to check out the YA!
