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 #71

 

 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.

After several weeks of working partial weeks, I put in a regular five day week at work and it felt odd. Real life is tough sometimes, lol. I had a good week overall despite the below freezing temps. This coming weekend I'll be attending Arisia and I'm looking forward to it. I hope to get books signed by Laura Anne Gilman and Tanya Huff.

The Week In Review

 

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: "cods/tongues" - from an author's guest post, I think; "cookie titles", and the still popular "threesome" and "how to catch a cat"

  4. Getting back to work after the holiday's is such a drag! January is a really slow time where I work, so the days drag most of the month which doesn't help.

    Congrats on winning all that swag. I know I can always use more bookmarks.
