The Sunday Post (4) + Stacking the Shelves (6)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on the blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Loving the Language of Literacy Lookout and Lookback:
-I have a bunch of new blog graphics all thanks to the amazing Laura @ Laura Plus Books. She is so nice, and cooperative, and does great blog graphics for FREE on Laura Plus Designs! She endured my insaneness when I was trying to figure out the image slider, and it took A LOT of patience to deal with that. Laura made the signature for this, post graphics, follow me buttons, and so much more. If your blog needs designs, then she is the person to go to.
-I apologize for two weeks ago, I have had a lot of personal issues and stress, and got a pitiful post count of two up. Not my finest blogging hour. This week as you can see, I have improved and gotten a lot more posts up.
-I am starting to do a TON of memes. Don't worry, all my review schedule is staying the same, as well as Spontaneous Saturday, The Sunday Post, and everything else. I just want Loving the Language of Literacy to constantly have new content. My schedule isn't finalized, and I still need to schedule a lot, but you will be seeing multiple posts a day now!
-I know I said the Fight For the Future transcription would be up a lot sooner, but I have been so overwhelmed, the entire month of Feburary has been one hec of a month. I made the decision to make it a two or even three part post because of how much footage I have. Part One will be up this week if not next. 
-If you have any ideas for a Spontaneous Saturday post, blog features, post requests, or anything else, leave it in the comments below, tweet me @sslluvsbooks, or shoot me an email at

She also made this amazing header-ish-thing with an original quote :)

*This week will be very high-pressure with Math Field Day Practice three times, multiple Standardized Tests, and more. Therefore, I am trying to schedule everything, but I make no promises. Everything will be a lot more structured and regular once I get into March. I know it looks a but ambitious, but I am DETERMINED to get this scheduling thing down this weekend*

Stacking the Shelves
"Stacking the Shelves" is a meme when you list the books you've added to your shelves, virtual, physical, or whatever shape or form you get them. I am now combining "Stacking the Shelves" with the "Sunday Post" because it is so much a personal preference about when and what you post "Stacking the Shelves" with. I am doing this meme once a week, so you will probably see nothing but library books because originally, I only did "Stacking the Shelves" as an every-time-I-go-to-the-library thing. As people may know, “Stacking the Shelves” posts are hosted by “Tynga's Reviews”  

{Disclaimer: I am in no means trying to brag about what I got, and merely shared this post for the benefit of my followers seeing what I so generously received, and as a favor to the lovely people that sent me things}
