BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

Sunday Book Share


Welcome back! The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
~this meme was inspired in part by - In My Mailbox~
It's a chance to share News.
A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.


I've decided to also participate in Stacking the Shelves, a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!


I've had a wonderfully lazy week this week, but work starts again on Monday. It's our new school year. We'll spend this week getting ready then next weeks the children return. I'm moving to a younger group this year, one and two year olds. It's been about eight years since I was with that age group, I hope I can still do it!

This past week, I posted two giveaways: A big one, where I'm giving away 12 books, go check it out! and a smaller one where Tribute Books and I are giving away a paperback copy of
"Immigration and Adaptation" by Edward G Haskell. 

I also did a feature post for "Immigration and Adaptation"; it's a non-fiction book about exactly what the title says. There were four reviews, not as many as I wanted to do, but still a lot for me:  Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood, Precinct 13 by Tate Hallaway, Shadow of Deceit by Mal Olson, and A Sliver of Shadow by Allison Pang. Those are all books from my August Review Copy Clean Up; again, I didn't do as well as I wanted but I made one goal and did decently on the other goal.

I participated in a blog hop, discussing what we look for in a review. Stop by and add your thoughts. :) There's a post where I share my frustration with my health and upcoming surgery. It's pretty ranty.

Review Books

Yes, I took on more review books. I need a slap upside the head and a clone. :P


Won


I was lucky enough to win this from the publisher over at facebook in a book club discussion.

Library


I read about this at Heroes & Heartbreakers and immediately requested it from my library. They had it in kindle version so it's now sitting on my kindle.
