Beyond the Books is a weekly meme where I throw out a topic (mostly non-bookish), and you guys blog about it. Come back here and share the link to your blog post, and we all have fun learning about each other.

I will be posted on the new topic every Thursday at midnight EST. My weekly post will kick it off. Below I will list upcoming topics so you can schedule your blog posts ahead, but please don’t post before Thursday 12am EST, (and don’t forget to come back and add your post to the linky so everyone who plays along can see it, too).

 I have been looking for a weekly feature that is not another review for a while. I found Life of a Blogger on a blog I love to stalk follow called Novel Heartbeat. Sadly, I caught on a bit too late. I only got to participate about three times before Jessi @Novel Heartbeat posted her last Life of a Blogger saying goodbye. So this idea is borrowed from her, (with permission). I am going to keep this feature on Thursdays like she had it.


Please stick to the topic of the current week.
