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 #77

 

 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.

More snow; this time I got a quarter day at school out of it. It came down fast and hard; we got more than was originally forecast. Otherwise, it was a quiet week - editing, reading, and review writing. Oh, and a cold and an asthma flare. I can't complain too much; I don't get them as often or as severely as I used to but oh, they are not fun.

The Week In Review

 
Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog:  An interesting mix this week: "brave: ultimate target challenge", huh? "westward to strange", "devils images", "naughty romance novel excerpts", "hot romantic touch", "threesome", "catch a cat", "cats playing with paper towels", and "asthma & lung section" - as always, I'm pleased when people find my site when searching for asthma and I hope that what I've shared will be useful to them.

  6. Another one who is impressed from your goody bag from Entangled, well done. Also, hope you feeling better now and it stays as a mild flare-up. My son suffered from childhood asthma and has completely grown out of it, it was scary from a parent's point, but he was too small to realise what's happening (I had a home inhaler machine for him). He is now 18 and didn't had any problems for 10 years.

  12. More snow than expected is definitely not a good thing. We're having temps in the low 50's today but apparently it's not going to last and there's more snow in this week's forecast :(

    Your goodie bag from Entangled looks great. Enjoy!

    Have a great week!

    Sorry to hear about the cold and asthma flare. I hope you're feeling better.
