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.
