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 #57

 

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.

I'm still not feeling well, this and that, but I had a decent week on the blog. The weather has been good and I've managed some reading. I did notice that I now have over 1200 published posts O_o Oh, and the blog was 3 years old last month. :)

1 digital copy of "One Last Shot" by Danielle La Paglia. Ends October 14th.

Odd or unusual search phrases that led to the blog: "jrr tolkien" :) "cat thursday" "sweetheart quotes for her" "kat black profiles" I'm not sure where that one came from.

  4. Congrats on 3 years. That's a massive undertaking. The Alexa Egan one looks interesting although I don't know why they insist on cutting off half of men's faces on covers. Here's my Sunday Post

    1. You can do it! Sometimes you need to take a break and that's okay too.

    2. I'm thinking you might be right. I think I need one day a week just to have some 'me' time to read or do Pinterest or something non bloggy!

  8. I've read Parasite. It was okay--not as good as I was hoping it would be. I'll be reviewing it on my blog this month. I hope you enjoy it though!

  20. Congratulations on 3 years and 1200+ posts - that's fantastic! And your haul is enticing -- Shadow's Curse looks tasty, and the book on the English language and the new Felix Francis are both intriguing.

    I'm sorry you've been under the weather; I hope you feel better soon.
