Books I got this week
In the mail:
- The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey – SIGNED
- The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey – SIGNED
- The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski – SIGNED, and personalized
I ordered these from Anderson’s Bookshop after seeing the upcoming events! I’m a little bummed that they weren’t able to get my Rick Yancey books personalized, but oh well =/
From the publisher:
So, um…I DNFed Ironskin. I received Copperhead (book 2) unsolicited in the mail last year and I’m pretty sure I gave it away. I’m feeling a bit guilty that they keep sending me books in this series that I couldn’t even start >.< How do you handle that?!
THANK YOU AMANDA!!!! You rock my socks!! (I loved it, by the way :D)

I forgot to share with you last week, but Ashley’s SEO chat was awesome! (If you didn’t attend, YOU MISSED OUT. Just sayin!) I learned a lot of useful things that I had NO idea I was doing wrong! Case in point, image alt tags. I have been deleting them because they annoy me…shame on me! I didn’t know what they were for, but as it turns out they’re actually important for SEO. Same with links – how many of you do the whole “Check out my blog post HERE” with the word “here” only as the link. This is incorrect!! The word you link needs to describe the actual link. After the chat, there are some things I will definitely be doing differently going forward!
For a more in depth look at this stuff, check out the wrap up of the SEO chat on Nose Graze!
