#OMKindle Marvelous Monday image, June 6th, tulip field, On My Kindle Book Reviews

It is a marvelous Monday here at On My Kindle! I have been getting book requests from authors who I have worked with before as well as new authors.

On My Kindle's reviews have been getting more views lately. According to Google Analytics, I hit over 1,000 page views on May 27th. I am used to seeing 200 - 300 views per day, but over 1,000 is huge! I would like to thank all of my authors and followers for helping to make this happen!

I have changed a couple of things on the blog:

The "Coupons" posts from my app sponsor, I'm In Marketer, will appear on the homepage now. I had them hidden, but the code I used to hide the posts from the homepage interfered with the comments section of the blog.

When you click on a "comment" link on the homepage, it will open a small pop-up window that you can type and share your comment in. Before, the comment link would take you to the top of the post and you had to scroll all the way through the post to share a comment.

Just to be clear, you can still scroll down within a post and share a comment. If you are like me, you sometimes forget to comment until after you have navigated away from the website. I find it more convenient to navigate back to a website's homepage and comment from there, rather than scrolling through a post that I just read.

 They are minor changes, but I wanted to let you know about them.

As if I was not busy enough; I decided to stop dabbling with design behind the scenes, and opened up a shop on Zazzle. I have created a few designs with more to come, and I am offering several different products in those collections to see which ones consumers prefer.

My favorite collection thus far is the Semicolon Butterfly Collection that I designed for mental health awareness. It is a subject that I am personally invested in, and 25-percent of the profits that I earn from this collection will be donated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). It is a great non-profit organization that performs research into mental illness, advocates for sufferers of mental illness, and helps to build awareness of mental illness.

If you have any suggestions about the products that you would like to see in the store, please contact me.

To Be Reviewed

Despite the fact that I took some time off over Memorial Day weekend, I have done a good job of staying on top of my "To Be Read" list. As such, here are the books that I will review this week:

Both of these authors have been waiting very patiently for me to get around to reviewing their books, and I really appreciate it!

To Be Read

I was hoping that I could start a third book this past week, but it did not happen. Maybe it will happen this week. Here is my "To Be Read" list for this week:

"Click." "Tap." Tag and post.

An adored baby tells a modern tale about life in today's digital world. #BabyLove: My Social Life highlights the social phenomena of sharing daily activities using technology and social networks.

A humorous look at raising a baby in the social age.
This sounds like a fun read, and the author has been waiting patiently for me to review this book.

I featured this book back on March 18th, and have been looking forward to reading it since. Also, I am really excited about reading this book because the author is another fellow Missourian.

I am tempted to add a third book to the list, but that would be asking for trouble.

Have you read any good books lately? What do you think of my store? Let me know in the comments.

Have a marvelous Monday, and a spectacular week!
