Sunday Book Share #12

 

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.

I have to say, I like having a 3 day work week and a 4 day weekend; I'm thankful for them. But this week, the holiday is over and it's back to a regular schedule. I had a quiet day at home on Thanksgiving, which was quite pleasant and very restful. The past few days, I've been busy reading and editing various editing projects.  I also attempted to help a friend set up her GoDaddy website for a class she's taking. Ugh. She's still figuring it out.

These are for The Black Stallion Reading Challenge I'm doing; I read The Black Stallion Challenged as a kid but The Black Stallion Legend is new to me.

I pre-ordered a signed print copy of this and the author sent me a PDF and an ePub of the book. I have a guest post by her about the book, complete with a recipe, this Saturday, December 1st.

  3. Totally agree on three day work week, heck i would like 4 days. I have always thought that if retailers closed shop on Sundays they'd save money, on wages, electric etc and we would all still buy what we needed on Monday. *random thought for the day* Lovely haul and glad you had a nice Thanksgiving.

    1. I am so unready to return to work. Some retailers would save money if they closed on Sundays while others lose money; I worked retail for 20+ years. I always hated working on Sundays. :(

    1. I've also enjoyed sleeping late, such a luxury. Once you get the kids and hubby out the door, do you have the place to yourself?

    1. I haunted all the local libraries as a kid, looking for horse books. I love The Black Stallion series; as an adult, I keep finding flaws. :D It's been an experience reading, and re-reading, them.
