Lots of new good television this weeks. I still haven’t seen all of them but the ones I have seen has been good to awesome. I’ll get back to you with bits and pieces here and there about the ones I haven’t written about already.
I think it was pretty good to read two books this week with all the other things I have been doing. I also wrote three reviews, though one you will not see until this week. I will have to pace my self in the future, I don’t want to over do it since I plan to be doing some other writing here and there too.
