Another Nook Delay and Some News…

Hi Everyone,

I was so excited when there was a knock on the door today. My replacement Nook had finally arrived. I quickly thanked the delivery man and opened up the box only to find… it was the wrong product. I was so disappointed. However I have been assured that the correct replacement Nook will be here by next week at the latest.

On a more positive note, I have a BIG Announcement that I will be making on here. It will be announced Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 6:00 am EDT. That means there is less than 4 days and 12 hours left!!! As for this announcement, I can’t say too much without giving it away, but I can leave you with a bit of information. I promise everyone who follows this blog will be excited about this announcement. I can say that this announcement will lead to something that will be a lot of fun for everyone, too. (At least I hope you all will be as excited as I am about this announcement.) I must stop now, before I say too much, but be sure to stop by here this weekend for the BIG announcement.

I hope you all have had a great Monday. I will be back in a couple of hours to post my next review.

Enjoy!

Bad Nook and This Week…

Hi Everyone,

Last week my Nook’s power cord broke. The new cord finally arrived on Friday and then this afternoon, while I was reading a book, the Nook made a buzzing sound and turned off. When I went to turn it on, it stated “Erasing data this may take a few minutes.” What on earth? After that it stated “Reinstalling manufacturer settings.” Again, what on earth? Sure, enough my Nook decided to turn itself off, delete everything and return back to day 1! Bad Nook, very bad Nook… I will be spending the next few hours reinstalling and reconfiguring my settings. Not the way I imagined tonight, but it has to be done. I so far have reinstalled my apps, but I painstakingly trying to re-add all of my contacts. So frustrating…

On a positive note, this week is going to be exciting. Right now I am in the process of editing two of my reviews, one of which is for the eMag. I will post the other one later tonight. (eMag reviews will be posted in a few weeks, once approved.) Coming up later in the week (May 1st and 2nd) there will be two author blog tour spots with giveaways!

Hope all of you had a wonderful Monday!

Enjoy!

Catching Up

Hi Everyone,

My dog went back to the Vet’s today for a follow up and received a great report! Thank goodness. He is healing nicely and can stop taking the antibiotics.

Also, the new power cord to the Nook arrived this evening. Now my Nook is charging, so I should be able to use it again by tomorrow!

All of this means that life will hopefully be getting back to routine. There will be several reviews posted next week.

I hope you all are having a fabulous Friday!

Enjoy!

My Other Sites Updated…

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let you all know that I have updated the My Other Sites page. I have added a link to my page on Barnes and Noble and Amazon. The Barnes and Noble page is still not showing all of my reviews, which I am working on. As for Amazon, I should be able to start posting reviews on there next week. As soon as I am able to, I will work on add ALL of my reviews to there, since I know this will help both authors and readers. Also, I added the link to the My Sister’s Books Facebook page, for anyone who would like to learn more about this wonderful bookstore.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

Have a wonderful night!
Enjoy!

Reading and Updates

Hi Everyone,

    Today is a major reading day for me. I hope you all have a good book to read this weekend too. Hard to believe that this is the last weekend of the year, but I am looking forward to 2013 and all that it has to offer.

     I just wanted to post a couple of quick updates here, before I go back to reading. First there appeared to be a connection issue with Facebook for the past two weeks, so if you are a fan of Ariesgrl Book Reviews Facebook page, you didn’t see anything that I had posted. I apologize for that and I think I have fixed the connection, so everything should be visible there again.

      Unfortunately the second thing I wanted to discuss is something that I cannot control, nor fix. As you know I post my reviews to Barnes and Noble’s website, however it has become a game of hit or miss with whether or not my reviews are viewable. When I log into my account I can view that all of my reviews have been saved but only about half of them saved the star rating. It appears that those with the saved stars are visible when pulling up customer reviews on a book. BUT those without the saved stars are not visible and the website will not allow me to go back and fix it or re-rate it. I am not sure why this occurs, because I review every book on their site in the same process. So for those of you, who know I have reviewed the books, but can’t see it, this would be the reason.

Lastly, I am pleased to announce that Ariesgrl Book Reviews will be hosting another author sometime in January. There may even be a giveaway, too. I will keep you all updated as more information comes around, but I am really excited about this news and wanted to give you all a head’s up!

I wish you all a happy and peaceful Saturday! Happy Reading!

Enjoy!

It is Friday!!!

Hi Everyone,
 
     How are you all? I have had a crazy-emotional week at home, which led to it now being Friday and I haven’t posted in a few days.

So here is a quick update of what is happening or will happen:

The bad:
1. The Barnes and Noble website is having issues again. I add my reviews to books, but it doesn’t show them. If I go to resubmit my review is denies it, because the site has saved my original review. I know back in August several authors and reviewers were having some trouble with the site and so I wanted you all to be aware that it appears to be acting up again.

The good:
2. I will be posting my review of book #20 in a couple of hours. I had written a couple of days ago, but family priorities took over and I promise it will be typed and posted today. Thanks for your patience.

The excellent:
3. I have been honored to conduct another author interview. Later tonight I will be posting my interview with author Lindsey Beth Goddard. You will want to come back and check out this interview, as there will be a couple of giveaways up for grabs!

   It will be a busy Friday here at Ariesgrl Book Reviews! How is your Friday/Weekend plans looking? Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Enjoy!

Happy Saturday!

Hi Everyone,

    I hope you enjoyed my review of Six Hours to Sunrise. I will be starting the second book in the Sanguine series tonight. I just wanted to share with all of you something that I learned from the author Melissa R. Smith‘s website. Barnes and Noble’s website is apparently having some trouble showing reviews. I double checked my reviews on my account, and they are all saved, however when I pull up the books, they do not show any stars or reviews. I just wanted everyone here to have a head’s up. Have a great night and wonderful rest of the weekend.

Enjoy,
~Ariesgrl
