Sunday Post #35/ It's Monday. What Are You Reading?
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Well things seem to be slowly getting back to normal around here- whatever that is. Spring seems like it may be close- we got into the 40's yesterday! Snow is melting and I can actually see yard again!
I've been thinking about my social media use and how it ties in with blogging, and it occured to me that I really don't use Goodreads much at all. I originally thought of GR as just a review site basically, but I see the more social aspects of it as well. So if you get a friend request from me on GR that's why. I'm going to try and expand my circle of friends on there, as well as tweet more. I tend to tweet in little bursts, punctuated by periods of inactivity, so I'd like to work on being more consistent. Anyone else have that problem?
I'm also thinking seriously again about a custom design for the blog- nothing too fancy, just something that looks better than my basic Blogger template! I don't really know design so I'm just going to have someone do it for me! If you have someone you recommend please let me know, I'm definetly interested.

Tuesday Tunes #7 a good one this week!
AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE
First off the new Captain America trailer, with an entire sequence beforehand. This looks totally awesome- even if you don't like Captain America, it's worth watching just to see Natasha in action. I want a Black Widow movie like right now!
This story shows why domestic disputes and swords don't mix. Two men got in a fight over a woman and at some point a replica sword from Legend of Zelda came into the mix. Injuries ensued, not surprisingly!
This is a neat story about a remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea that almost happened in the 1980's. Check out the cool concept art here and at io9.
Meanwhile, George RR Martin's newly restored theater had their grand opening this past week, and a very special guest was on hand. Ernest Cline, author of Ready Player One, was on hand to autograph- and his DeLorean was there too (the one from Back to the Future, which he happens to own). Is that cool or what?
The usual goodness at Trolldens- cosplay of Power Girl, some very cool Dwarven Forge underground terrain, and more cosplay.
So how was your week?
