Sunday Book Share #50 and A Blog Update


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.

VACATION!! School is out and I'm relaxing. I may go away later this week but that's still up in the air. For now I'm lazing on the couch, catching up on sleep. Then next week, it's back to work and prepping for the new school year. Posts through the end of September will be lighter and reviews will be sporadic though Jax and Carol have some scheduled. September and the start of the new school year always wipe me out and I end up falling asleep on the couch for several hours, usually before I've eaten dinner. I have lots of guests lined up, excerpts, giveaways, etc., most of them from authors at Astraea Press, where I'm an editor. October should see things back to normal, if the kids haven't killed me off. :D
