Weekly Update #181, Politics and #TackleTBR...

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.

Have you been bombarded with politics yet? If you live in the US, it's probably part of everyday life now. I've noticed even on Twitter I've been getting it (of course and now I bring it up here so a little hypocritical, right?). The ads have been so trashy on both sides too. I'm all about voting and the freedom to vote and actually have a degree in political science. I've decided this year though, that it would totally rock if everyone in the US just voted for the independent guy and Trump and Clinton both lost. That's my two cents. 

Did you guys catch this NY Times article about printed books still going strong? I totally agree. I'm also curious about the upcoming Anne of Green Gables Netflix adaptation. They better not ruin it!

The next two weeks are going to be really busy for me, but also super awesome! My annual read-a-thon kicks off tomorrow and boy, do I need to get some reading in! It's going to be a lot of fun! I have a full lineup on the blog as well.
