This week’s theme is: catch up on… something.

Some suggestions:
Catch up on….
…challenges

…organizing your sidebar
…updating lists of some sort (I need to deal with my giveaways list!)
…making links wherever (challenge lists, monthly reading summaries, etc.)

…bloghopping
…your TBR pile
…your library books
…updating your blogroll
…updating your reader
…???

How to:
1. Decide what you need to catch up on.
2. Write a post if you feel like it, telling your readers what you intend to catch up on. If you do that, you can sign Mr Linky right away with the link to that specific post.
3. Catch up!
4. Write a post near the end of the week (Thursday or Friday) summarizing how your catch-up week went. If you didn’t sign Mr Linky with your intentions post, sign it with your summary post.
5. Don’t forget to visit other Weekly Geeks and encourage them in their catching up!

Some of the things I need to catch up...

On my priority list will be getting things all ready for the arrival of my baby next month! I cannot believe that time flies by so quickly and in another three weeks' time (if the timing is accurate), I will be a mom again and will be holding my darling baby in my embrace soon! My blog may go hiatus for a while since I will be busy with my little one, but that does not mean I will give up blogging and not reading your blogs!

Then again, there are the reading challenges which I have participated and have yet to be completed! And of course I have no one to blame but myself since several of the books listed not read is due to my ever changing reading mood. I also get influenced by fellow book blogger friends' recommendations easily so I usually end up reading the books they suggested or reading the latest releases. It is one habit which is hard for me to break.

Coming up next is organising my bookshelves and/or TBR book piles. I need to pack those books which I read into a box so that the books not read could move into their places. As my bookshelves are already filled to the brim, I stack my other TBR pile into four towers in the storage room and all of them are taller than me! (My estimated height is 1.61 meters so go figure!) I got the 'look' from my husband because one of them collapsed last Sunday, hehe.

I also have to thank My Friend Amy for coming up with a great event like BBAW and this has allow me to explore many book blogs which are new to me, and that means I need to update my blogroll as well.

I think that is about all for me at the moment. What about you?

    Time indeed flies, Melody and before you know it, you're going to be mommy again! I can picture your excitement. Hehehe :)

    That's an amazing description of your TBR pile. I dare not look at mine...

    Aw congrats!

    I'm still trying to get caught up on my reviews because I'm months behind. Since I'm blogging every 2 days or so I might actually have a chance of getting caught up one day lol!


  3. Nymeth Says:

    3 weeks' time! It feels that it was only the other day that you first announced it! You and your family must be so excited :D


  4. Maree Says:

    Oh, congrats, how exciting!
    I'd love another baby _ I'm really starting to miss having a newborn. :)


  5. bkclubcare Says:

    That ever-changing reading mood happens to me, too. It's fun, though. Happy catching up and oooooo! so fun about new baby cuddling!!!


  6. Debi Says:

    You will be so missed if you take a break from blogging, but it will be for the best of reasons! As you already know that baby-time goes by so fast, so you have to soak up every second you can! But please, please, please...you must post a picture of your little one sometime when you get a minute, okay?

    And by the way, I so know what you mean about book bloggers...you guys are always making me read stuff when I'd really planned to read something else entirely. :)


  7. Iliana Says:

    OMG - I didn't realize you were due so soon Melody! I bet you guys can't wait for the new baby!! I'll echo what Debi said, please please post a pic of the baby or at least let keep us informed :)

    I'm so glad the weekly geeks is on catching up - I've got a lot of that to do this week!


  8. Melody Says:

    Alice - I'm pretty nervous too, although this is not my first delivery, LOL.

    Jen - Thanks! :) BTW, I love the new looks of your blogs! They're very pretty!

    Nymeth - That's what I thought too! And yes, we're waiting anxiously for the little one to arrive. :D

    Maree - Thank you! :)

    Care - I just love the fun of choosing what book to read next based on my reading mood because you'll never know what book you'd end up with! ;P

    Debi - I'll surely miss everyone!! Yes, I'll post a pic of my baby if I've the chance to get online! :D

    Iliana - I know that feeling... I didn't expect the time to pass by so quickly either, LOL! Come to think of it, I'm getting both excited and scared at the same time! ;P


  9. Julia Says:

    As I have already told you, it just seem like it was only yesterday when you gave us the new that you pregnant. Times really flies by. But I can't wait to see your little darling.

    And you would surely be missed, if you stay away from ME too long without chatting LOL!

    I've lot of catch up to do..like blog hopping for one. I need to read more and do reviews. And I surely need to sleep LOL!

    Bless you Melody, rest up and take care of yourself -- I meant it! :)

  13. Kristina Says:

    I bet you can't wait for the new baby Melody! Congrats to you! My TBR pile looks like yours sounds! Yikes! Good luck catching up!!


  14. Melody Says:

    Kristina - Thanks for visiting! And thanks for your wishes too. :)


  15. Julia Says:

    You better emails me often, while you away from office LOL! *big hugs* :)


  16. Time sure does fly, doesn't it, Melody? I can't believe you'll be giving birth next month.

    I am slowly working my way through my challenges (sometimes not at all, I admit) this year. Maybe I will finish one or two. :-)

    I need to organize my shelves again, but I keep putting it off. So many books to add in with the already-shelved ones . . .

    I hope you are having a great week so far, Melody!


  17. Melody Says:

    Julia - I'll whenever I can. :)

    Wendy - I'm way too behind my challenges (as well as organizing my bookshelves/book piles), hehe. I hope you'd a great weekend, Wendy! :)
