Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is the weekly recap feature created by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Tara @ 25 Hour Books, where they shamelessly plug each other, share the fantastic posts, giveaways, or whatever else they’ve found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books they plan on reading in the coming week.

It’s a great community-building feature, so I’m dumping my regular weekly wrap-up and joining forces with these guys! The format of the post will evolve as I figure out exactly what sorts of things I like to include.

Mandi Kaye’s Week

Just a quick note that I’m going to be in NYC next week (I leave the day after tomorrow!) for BEA! I will have posts scheduled to go up, but I won’t be around on Twitter and other online places as much. Try not to have too much fun without me!

Around the Interwebz

These are all posts/articles/whatever from around the web that I loved.

And finally… today’s #FF question was a doozy. Basically, it was to pair up two of your favorite book characters romantically. There were a lot of really good responses, but these two made me chuckle!
  • Jenn @ The Bawdy Book Blog picked JBZ and Katniss. I know right?!
  • Gizmo’s Book Reviews picked Elena and Curran. Werewolf and werelion. Nothing could possibly go wrong.

Thanks for the shout out and have a blast at BEA! I wish I was going, and planned to, but it didn’t work out for me this year. I’ve used up too much vacation time already…soooo, next year!

Thanks! I’m soooo excited, even though it doesn’t quite feel real yet. I mean – I’m going to NYC! (Never been).

And yours was, by far, the best FF I saw today. :) How could I not link it up?!

You’re not excited about going to BEA, are you? Because I feel like you didn’t mention it enough.

Also, I like that you added where you found the books to add to your TBR list! :)

Mandi Kaye 6/1/2012

I can go back and add it in some more. :P

And I did that just for you! It was a good idea.

It makes me think I should start paying more attention to WoW posts…. or maybe not, if my goal is to keep my TBR list to a minimum. =P

Mandi Kaye 6/1/2012

I love Wednesdays because I learn about so many books I’ve never heard of! And the last several weeks, I haven’t had the time to go through very many WoW posts – ordinarily, I’d have way more adds to my TBR list.

The only thing to figure out is when I’ll have time to read them!

Miss Remmers 6/1/2012

Thanks for the link! :)

DUDE. I had a link come through for approval on the blog from here: http://aboutbook.info/books/never-too-fond-of-books-clock-rewinders-on-a-book-binge-6-1-12

:(

Mandi Kaye 6/3/2012

Thanks, Smash. I don’t even know what to do about it though – there’s no contact info AT ALL (at least that I can find) anywhere on the page.

Ugh.
