Behind the Screen (16)

Happy Thursday!


My trip in Istanbul is being prolonged. So in stead of tomorrow, I will be travelling back home next Wednesday. Hopefully that means I will have the chance to see little of the city itself too. So far it has only been hotel, office and airport. Looking forward to that as much as for the events in the Istanbul office in the beginning of next week.

I would also love to give you little BEA 2012 update. I have booked the rooms and I am also now officially registered to BEA 2012! It felt so good to receive the confirmation by email. I will also be participating the Book Blogger Convention which is concurrent event to BEA. The last thing to do is the planning of the on-site event and meetings. Only 4 months to go.

While reading and blogging:

Due to the travel, I have not been reading very much, but I have finished couple of books. The problem has been that in the evenings I am so tires, so instead of writing reviews, I simply can't keep my eyes open. I have been sleeping a lot! Which is of course good for my welfare, but the review writing has been suffering. There will be couple of reviews coming though, due to blog tours and some books what I have finished. Generally there is a long way to go.

As you can see I have been participating on Random Acts of Kindness and in January I sent out two books to make someone happy. For my very good surprise, I got an email that someone wants to send me something this month, so hopefully  I will receive a book during February. I am also planning to send couple of books out during February myself. I love giving!

Generally, as suspected, not much behind the scenes, because my focus has been on work and travel.

Challenges 2012:

For 2012 TBR Pile Challenge I have read Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, but I still need to write a review.
