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 #67

 

 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, and Library Loot co-hosted by The Captive Reader and The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. All of these memes give book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received, and posts and events at their blogs.

Oy, I'm glad last week is over. It was stressful on several counts. I'm closer to being ready for Christmas though and I, once again, have a new cell phone. So far, it works. :D Over the next few weeks, the majority of reviews will be catch-up reviews, books that have been sitting in my review pile for an embarrassingly long time. I have an ambitious plan to post a review a day from the 21st through the 30th. Will I succeed? Check back and find out. :)


Last Week On the Blog





Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: There are some interesting new ones this week. "beas book nook phone number" - yeah, not sharing that. Sorry. "dancing nudes paintings", and "pics of books with cats" There are no dancing nudes here, of any variety, lol.

  11. Love your review plan, I really want to try and post more reviews a month but so far I have been reading so slow. The only time I read and reviewed really quick was during a challenge.

    Happy Reading all your new books :)

  13. I hope you enjoy Murder, She Barked as much as I did, Bea. I'm pretty much doing the same thing you are for the rest of the month - catching up on reviews I've had in my TBR for way too long. I probably won't get to finish as much as you are planning though but I hope to get a few in. Have a great week!
