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 #75

 

 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 Silly Little Mischief 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.

So who in the US watched the Super Bowl? I watched Shrek and read a Jessica Scott book. More snow last week; a few inches on Monday and a storm on Wednesday, which resulted in no school being cancelled. I got lots of reading done. :)

The Week In Review


Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: Lots of cat-related terms last week - "how to catch a cat", "Images of cats with books", "cats are made of liquid" and a few non-cat ones - "e-book kid" and "do you want my" Umm, what? :D

*Happy dance* I've been waiting impatiently for this. I love this series so much! CarolKat, Jax, and I are doing a group review this month, on the 20th. I started it and so far I'm loving it.

*more happy dancing* I've been waiting for this book for over a year. It's the end of the Ashfall trilogy by the amazing Mike Mullin. I'm reviewing it for a blog tour next month.

    1. Yes, need more time for reading! Cats are part liquid at least, look at how they fit into containers and odd spots. :D

  13. We watched the Super Bowl but it was pretty obvious who was going to win, so we got bored with it too. Not exactly a gripping game. :) Looks like an eclectic mix of books, hope you enjoy them all! Have a great week.

  21. I watched the Super Bowl. The worst game I ever saw! And the commercials weren't all that amazing either. A few good ones, but that was it.

    Well, enjoy your new reads and have a great week!
