This has been a fun weekend! First, I got to watch the new Doctor Who episode. It was the anniversary episode, and it was quite fantastic. I had been a bit disappointed with the last few Doctor Who episodes; however, this episode was quite strong. I was quite happy with it. I was also happy that the episode was being simulcasted on BBC America. I got to watch it legally and at the same time as everyone else! Yea! :)
Second, I discovered that wma audio books from Overdrive can be played on my iPod shuffle. I didn't think I could play Overdrive audio books on it (I had tried previously but something went wrong, and I just figured I couldn't do it), but I can! This opens me up to so many more library audio books. Before this discovery, I rarely listened to wma audio books (versus mp3 audio books), because I thought I could only listen to them on my computer. Although my library has a lot of mp3 audio books, which I can listen to on the Overdrive app on my phone, there were quite a number of wma audio books that I desperately wanted to listen to.
Weekly Book Haul
ARCs & Giveaways
I have been good about requesting ARCs; I only got two! I got Hercule Poirot and the Greenshore Folly by Agatha Christie (because Shaelyn from Shae Has Left the Building mentioned it) and Beyond the Rift by Peter Watts (because Tabitha from My Shelf Confessions liked it). I also received two books from Goodreads: Too Cute Puppies by Animal Planet and Victorian Secrets: What a Corset Taught Me about the Past, the Present, and Myself by
Sarah A. Chrisman.
I got volumes 2-8 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8.
by Ann Leckie: Yeah, I haven't been really reading this book. Because the month is almost up, and I don't want to miss out on my book club's discussion, I will probably push through and finish this book.
Divergent by Veronica Roth: I have been focused on finishing A Feast for Crows, so I haven't been listening to Divergent. Now that this is my only audiobook and that I discovered that I can listen to WMA audio books from Overdrive on my iPod shuffle, I imagine that I will finish this book quickly.
