Weekly Update #180, in which I got a new phone...

Welcome to my Weekly Update where I post my blog's schedule for the week! I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer, as well as to Tynga's Reviews for Stacking the Shelves and Talk Supe for Bought, Borrowed, and Bagged showcasing the books I added to my shelves or Kindle this week.

So I was all better from my cold this past week and ready to roll to get a bunch of stuff done and reading in, and then I got a new phone... 

My old phone was a Windows phone and was fairly old. Now I have this lovely and sleek Samsung Galaxy J7 (cheapest Galaxy they had) that is way more advanced and much funner. I think I spent like two hours just picking a theme. I went vintage. Then more hours on downloading apps and updating settings and selecting ringtones and notification tones and on and on... Then I played with it and moved my apps around my screen and all that. Plus, I had to shop for a cover and order a screen protector. Seriously. Who has time to spend on that stuff?!! Obviously I do. Although, other things suffered. Like I only read one and a half books last week. And after reading over seven the week before. 0.0 Now, I'm really ready to roll. At least until something else comes up, right? ;)

I do have to say that my new phone makes Instagram so much easier and I actually joined a bookish challenge this month (#FalltheBooks) and have been having a blast. Make sure you check out my posts! I will also be running a giveaway over there soon as I've reached 1,000 followers. Thank you!!
