Hello, fellow book lovers!

I’ve got lots of books to talk about, as I’ve been reading a fair bit lately. Here’s a list of categories tentatively planned out to discuss:

Hardbacks
Paperbacks
Ebooks
Netgalley-a website where you can download ebooks for free (http://www.netgalley.com)
Email Requests-authors/publishers who ask me to read a PDF book version, sometimes a real book to review (happening a lot more frequently these days)
Books In the Mail-birthday books, publishing company books that are sent to me, borrowed books, etc.
Surprise Books-books that I happen to get unexpectedly when traveling/visiting book stores
Library Rentals-books that I snag from the library
Barnes and Nobles/Bookstores-books from B&B and random other bookstores/book fairs that I go to
Free Amazon Books-I generally pick up Amazon books that I wish to read

I believe that these will have their own pages, once I start getting things settled on this blog. For those of you who are new, please forgive me as I’m changing things around-this blog is almost one year old, and I’m only just now getting around to fixing things up so that it stands out, and looks a lot nicer. I’ve changed the heading, I have a YouTube, and I’m hoping to get its own Twitter account, as well as a Facebook account. It has an email account: riapotterwrites@gmail.com though I’m thinking of changing that as well so that its just for this website, though my email primarily does mainly bookish themes it has a few other things that I’ve signed onto as well.

Now, there will be times when I’m not on for days/weeks at a time, because I travel and I also don’t have wifi at home. However, the local library has a new thing where I can check out a wifi hotspot for a week at a time. Though signal where I live is very poor indeed (only one bar on my smart phone!), I’m hoping that week will be a lot more posts on books.

Also, I’m thinking of tentatively linking my Wattpad account linked, as well as a few other links on this website as well. Thoughts?

Read Books:
Polar Heat by Simone Beaudelaire (Free Kindle Book)
Dealing With Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede (Re Read Kindle Book)
My Name Is For My Friends-Joe Vasicek (Free Kindle Short Story)
Ocean’s Fire-Stacey L. Tucker (Netgalley Free Kindle Novel)

Once the categories of books that I have made are up and running on this blog, I intend on going back through my blog and linking each review into the appropriate category. I also intend on going to Goodreads and linking each review from Goodreads to my blog. That will take a LOT of time and effort, and frankly I hate the idea of doing it, but am doing it anyway because I want to be more organized with my books, and want my blog to show just how much I read.

Does anyone know how to do badges for WordPress? I’m trying to link that I’m an affiliate of various websites (Netgalley, Goodreads, random blogs) and I can’t figure it out. Some help would be much appreciated!

Well, I think that this is a long enough post for now. Thanks for checking in, and be sure to check back often to see what new changes I’ve made with this blog. Have a great weekend everybody!

Cheers!
