Book buying ban week #7 and Feedburner goes AWOL

Hello, me dears!
It was an eventful week for me for sure. How about you?

First of all, those of you who blog know about the issues with Feedburner which has frozen everyone's stats to 0 and is discontinuing its mail subscription service to blogs.

After some initial panic I found couple of alternatives which I'm sharing here in hope that they will help some of you.

A free alternative to Feedburner statscounter which you might notice on my right sidebar is Feedcat.net
If you are subscribed to me through RSS you don't have to do anything. The posts will still appear in Google Reader.

As for email subscription service, Parajunkee had a great post explaining how to retrieve email addresses for your subscribers from Feedburner.
 After you do that you can email your subscribers notifying them that Feedburner is discontinuing their service and suggest an alternative.
As an alternative I found Blogtrottr, which is very easy to use and free as well.
The form I have on my right sidebar for email subscription is from them, so if any of you would like to subscribe to my posts by email, you are welcome to do it now.

Phew... All this out of the way, let's get back to my books, shall we?

Read this week


What was I thinking? Reading this after brilliance of The Angel? It was like chewing sand - bland, uninspiring and utterly ridiculous. Had to stop myself after few chapters.
Tiffany, you've ruined Fifty for me :D
I want more Soren and Nora. 

 After this book I went on Tiffany Reisz' website and read tons of freebies she's got there.
Next book will be about Kingsley, and I say BRING IT ON! Absolutely Macchiavelian books... So brilliant!

It had to be done.
I won a book from wonderful Kimberly at Kimba The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, so
this beauty arrived on Friday...
Ia is a precog, tormented by visions of the future where her home galaxy has been devastated. To prevent this vision from coming true, Ia enlists in the Terran United Planets military with a plan to become a soldier who will inspire generations for the next three hundred years-a soldier history will call Bloody Mary.

One of my favoritest (I just invented the word) authors, Elizabeth Hunter, asked me to review her new book about Carwyn. What can I say? She made me an offer I couldn't refuse.

Total: 67 books (7 for review)

Last notice, I promise!
I'm saying goodbye to my page with International Giveaways, peeps. I stopped updating it regularly because  it takes up too much of my time and frankly only few people use it. If you still want to be updated, follow me on twitter as I always repost about them there.

Cheers and Happy Sunday!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
