Weekly Wrap-up for August 28, 2011: On BBAW, Blogversaries, and Giveaways.

I am really sad that August is coming to an end. It feels like I didn't have much of a summer, so when it hits September 1 this week, I may have a mini-meltdown. It certainly doesn't feel like fall is around the corner!

I spent only two days this week working, and took Wednesday through Friday off. I had some things around the apartment to get done, as well as stuff for school. I only semi-accomplished my goals, but I have this week off as well to get more complete (only 2 days required for being at the school).

One big highlight from my week was waking up to a most glorious e-mail on Monday morning. Someone, or someones, nominated my blog for the Best Classics Book Blog for BBAW! I am truly honored and touched, so THANK YOU. It means a lot.

This coming week is a big one. I am celebrating TWO YEARS into my project, and while I am not as far along as I wanted to be, I am proud of where I am and the goals I have achieved so far. I have read some scary books, but I know I have some scarier ones ahead. :) There will be more posts on my blogversary this coming week, including a recap of the past year of my project, much like the recap post I did last year.

I am also planning a number of giveways (seriously, I am giving away quite a few things). I'll have a new giveaway up every day, including one JUST FOR INTERNATIONAL READERS, so stay tuned in! ;) I love giving books to fellow readers!

Anyway, I want to cut this short this week. Happy reading!!!
