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 #43


I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. These  memes allow book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received, and different posts and events at their blogs.

Last week was the last regular week of care at my school; we start our summer schedule on Monday. I said goodbye to one child who's taking the summer off and to two who are leaving the center. I always hate saying goodbye; I'll really miss the ones who left. Of course, I got sick halfway through the week; my usual sinus infection and asthma flare. Sigh. Well, at least it's been several months since I was sick so that's progress. Unfortunately, it's affecting my reading and I'm now behind on my reviews and my editing so you may not see me around much for a few days. 

The Week In Review

I won this in a goodreads giveaway. They didn't even email me to tell me; it just showed up in my mailbox with a note. :D It was a nice surprise.


I bought these used at If you're in the US, check it out; it's a wonderful site for swapping books and they have a large selection.

  12. I'm sorry you're not feeling well, and I hope you get better soon! Meanwhile, curl up with some tea and a nice audiobook. (Ginger tea is good for clearing sinuses!)

    I like the look of the books you got this week! I downloaded Do Not Disturb, too. And congrats on the Goodreads win! I've got the e-ARC of Rose Harbor in Bloom; I need to read a few more ARCs before I get to it.

  13. You've picked up some interesting books this week!! Enjoy them when you are able to read again!!
