Sunday Book Share #14




I'm participating in Feed My Reader Friday hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A WriterThe Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. The  memes allow book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received and different posts and events at their blog.

Happy Hannukah to everyone who is celebrating!

I am not nearly as ready for Christmas as I need to be. I keep looking at my to-do list and it's not getting noticeably shorter. Somehow, it will all get done but I had hoped to be more organized this year. Two weeks from today I'll be driving down from Massachusetts to Virginia to spend Christmas with my parents and siblings. In good weather and easy traffic, it's about an 8 hour drive so I figure it'll take me about 10 hours. 

This Friday I'll be booking it out the door at work at 6PM to go see "The Hobbit". Any parents who are late picking up their child will find them dressed and sitting in the parking lot. Just kidding, but I will be eyeing the clock anxiously as I won't have much time to get to the showing on time. I have high hopes for the movie and I can hardly wait.

Also, I'm looking to sell my old kindle. It's a gray keyboard model, with both 3G and wifi. It comes with a skin (or I can keep the skin) and a black leather cover with a light. If you're interested, email me at beasbooknook@gmail.com









Whew! Busy week. Now, onto the...

    1. It's a long drive but not a hard one. I'm just hoping for good weather. I got the Fierce Reads books off of Amazon, they may still be free.

      Happy Sunday!

  2. Ooh, you have some fiery hot books in your book haul this week! I am horrible at picking those out, but love them when I get my hands on a good one.
    I drive from where I am in AL to where I am from in NY at least once a year. 21 hour drive and I always do it in two days. When I get there, I am half dead from exhaustion, so I know it can be tough. Keep safe out there. Happy reading!

    1. Oh boy, that's a long drive. I bet you're exhausted afterwards.

      I have a few fiery reads that I didn't list; they're fun to read.

      Have a good weekend and happy reading.

  3. The Hobbit is on my must see list too. You'll have to let us know how it was!

    You know how you could add an extra layer of torture on that eight hour trip? Disco road tunes. I'll start putting together a mix tape for you this afternoon. ;)

    1. Kimba I ordered my Hobbit tix back in early November :D Bounce Bounce

      You're right, the list will get done and I'll be exhausted. I was hoping to avoid the exhausted part this year, oh well.

      Have a good week. :)
