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 #46

 
 

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.

We had another heat wave last week and I still don't have A/C. My condo is a sauna; it's one way to lose weight. I was also busy editing and trying to read some review books. Still, it was a good week and there's only one month left before school closes for a week and then we start the new year. We got our assignments for next year and I got the classroom I requested. :) I'll be with the ones and twos again; it's such a fun age.

    1. Yeah, it's not fun. Ice cream helps and lots and lots of fans.

      The Kate Daniels books are good and I love the use of mythologies from around the world.

  3. NO AC!!! UGH! That's awful, the heat has been nasty! Great pile of books you have this week! I love the covers of Pile Of Bones, and Magic Rises cover seems weird without the original girl, since this model seems so young. Have a "cooler" week, temps should be lower this week :)

    1. You know, I wondered if that was a different model on Magic Rises.

      Today is already cooler and I've turned off one fan. :)

  23. No AC? Oh, I hope it's fixed soon! Your new books look wonderful. I'm looking forward to your review of King Arthur: Dragon's Child -- just the title gets this Arthurian fan's interest stirring.

    Thanks for stopping by my Sunday Post yesterday! Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner; we were out of town all day and only got back at 3:00 a.m.
