This week has been ok. Nothing that much happened in terms of life events for me. Big events in America though- Wendy Davis filibustered for nearly 11 hours to stop the anti-abortion law getting passed, and the Supreme Court chucked out the Defence of Marriage Act and Prop 8 got killed in California and essentially I have hopes for America.
The biggest thing that happened was I made a tower of books. Of my TBR. And it's taller than me. It's 181cm. IT'S NEARLY SIX FOOT HOW DID I ACCUMULATE THAT MANY???
Unfortunately, it fell down before I could get a picture of me with it. But it's taller than me. I am nowhere near six foot.
Interweb news-Google Reader is dying tomorrow. Sad sad times-I've relied on that for over two years. So, obligatory "follow me elsewhere!!" Bloglovin, Feedly and email, are the ways I'm trying to promote, but here's the raw feed you can use in any reader.

Tim Burton's going to do the film for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children [source] This was my first ever physical review book, and you can find the review here, so it's quite close to my bloggy heart, and I generally love Tim Burton so... hopefully this will go well!
Awesomeness of the week. A list of translated graffitti found in Pompeii/Herculaneum. I'm going later this year, but I'm fairly sure we won't be going looking for these... Some of my favourite repeatable ones are " Learn this: while I am alive, you, hateful death, are coming." and "On April 19th, I made bread". Some of my other favourites...aren't. Link not suitable for younger people.
Have a great week!
