Dusting off the Shelf January 2015 Link-Up Post

Dusting off the Shelf

Happy New Year everyone! Today is January 1st, and that means my Dusting off the Shelf 2015 Reading Challenge has begun! If you haven’t signed up yet, CLICK HERE. You can do so until the 10th of January. I haven’t gotten very many people so please consider signing up! It’s nothing too formal, just for fun!

This is the post where you can add your links for JANUARY as you read those poor neglected books and review them on your blog, Goodreads, YouTube, where ever. Please be sure to only add links to books that you’ve read this month, and not any fairly recent titles. The link-up is for the challenge only.


Happy reading, and good luck!


Early Excitement: January 2015

Next year I want to participate in less memes and focus on writing a more unique blog with better content. So I just decided to only participate in Top Ten Tuesday for the weeks there are topics I like, and this little creation here: Early Excitement is my alternative for Waiting on Wednesday which I normally posted each week. In doing so I’ve decreased the number of memes and made the blog a little more unique, but it’s still a work in progress! For organizational purposes, Early Excitement posts will be located under the Waiting on Wednesday AND Early Excitement categories. These posts will also always be posted on the Wednesday before the next month, but as this idea just came to me I’m posting it now!
