I'm participating in both The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Each meme allows book bloggers the chance to share books they've received, and different posts and events at their blog.
This has been a busy week. I had the final lung surgery on Tuesday and it went smoothly. The results won't be known for a while but the procedure itself went off just fine. My recovery so far has been pretty smooth too. I expect I'll be back at work on Monday. I appreciate everyone's kind words and thoughts, they've helped. :)
While I was recovering, the blog was busy both with scheduled posts and and a couple of unplanned ones. There are a couple of giveaways going on still and there might be one this week. I say "might" because I may need to pull out of the blog tour sponsoring it. I didn't realize that the book in question involved cancer as a major plot line and I always try to avoid books and movies about cancer. It just hits too close to home. So, if I can't finish the book, I'll likely end up pulling out of the tour. I've already talked to the author and given her a heads up. Apart from the whole cancer thing, I'm enjoying the book. :D

About two weeks ago, I received a press release about this book and I promptly wrote a post about it. The book is pubbed by Random House and Habitat for Humanity and raises funds for Habitat. Someone at Habitat saw my post and offered to send me the book. I happily agreed and it arrived a few days ago. I'm not sure if the edition I received was a special one or the regular one but it came with a slipcover and a book plate and the book is signed by the author. VERY kind of Habitat. Now, I just need to decide whether to give it away here on the blog and buy my own copy or keep this one and give away a copy. Either way, at some point, there will be a giveaway.
Another surgery, more Kindle freebies. :D I didn't go quite as crazy this time as the others but even so, I downloaded many.
