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 #87

 
http://www.talksupeblog.com/search/label/Bought%20Borrowed%20and%20Bagged

 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe, and Library Loot co-hosted by The Captive Reader and Silly Little Mischief. All of these memes give book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received, and the posts and events at their blogs.

Lots and lots of rain and chilly temps; it felt very much like March for most of the week. I did some reading, worked on editing, and had more testing on my wrist. I'm also searching for a new job as I'll be leaving my current job in August, and it's scary. It's been 20+ years! Eep.

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: April's top search terms were "threesome" in the number one spot, followed by "beasbooknook.blogspot.com", "how to catch a cat", "nora roberts releases", "christian dating online austin texas new topic" and finally, "bea's book nook" There's a story in there somewhere. :D

 The last book in the series was on sale for 99 cents also so for just under two dollars I picked up the whole series. :)

    Same here...and I'm in Italy (on the Tuscan coast). Argh!

    Best wishes for your future...are you headed toward a new job?

    The search strings were so funny. "How to catch a cat"? And "threesome" LOL.

    Sorry for the deleted comment BTW. Mistake spotted too late!

    1. No worries about the deletion. :) It seems wrong that you, over there in Italy, are having my crappy weather. :(

      My search terms crack me up some days. I hope I'm headed for a new job, that's the goal.

  14. Oh wow - a job change at any point is scary IMO, so after 20 years I know it must be. Good luck, I hope you find what you need AND want (since that's not always the same thing).

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow, 20 years in one place is amazing! It's not often you meet people sticking to one job for that long these days! I wish you best of luck with a new job, Bea. And I'm jealous about Free to Fall - I really want to read this! :) Have a lovely week, my dear!

  16. Nice list of books!

    I know what you are going through as far as the job situation goes. My place closed and I was there for almost 25 years. I'm still looking for another job but the market isn't all that good right now.

    Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow, I imagine it would be a little scary to leave after that long, You got some great books. I am off to see Free To Fall is. ;)

  18. Whew that's a long time in one place. Good luck with the job hunting! And hope the testing went well :)

  19. We had Spring-like weather and it was nice. :) *fingers crossed* you'll find the perfect job. My hubby just 'celebrated' his 20th year. We were saying, nowadays most people don't end up staying with a company that many years. Or like my dad who was at Goodyear 43 years. Have a great week!

  21. I am sure you will find a new job soon. I know it is hard to leave a place where you are so comfortable. Our weather has been just as crazy, Warm and sunny back to cold and rainy. I want summer.

  23. Bea, I wish you luck on your job search, and will pray for just the right thing to come along. Meanwhile, I hope you have a chance to enjoy some of those tempting-looking books you picked up this week! The Melanie Adair looks like a nice summer read.
