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 #89

 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.

Another week, another doctor appointment. This was with my regular asthma doctor and he's pleased with how well I'm doing. In addition, since I had the lung surgery almost two years ago, my lung function has increased almost 10 percent. :) Better lung function, fewer asthma attacks and episodes, I'm a happy girl. It was overall a quiet but good week, maybe because I fell asleep on the couch every night. :P

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: Some new ones this week - "bea's kindle", "cat worship", "funny mother's day animal pictures", "book dog perspective shiny shoes", and "cindy mccauley flying high soring tennessee walking horse".

I had another good book week. :)


Odin's Ravens by K.L. Armstrong & M. A. Marr - this was a preorder
Blonde Ops by Charlotte Bennardo & Natalie Zaman - I reviewed an eARC but I wanted a final copy since I'm mentioned in the acknowledgments.

Review - I just couldn't resist. :D

Review Consideration

Kindle Freebies - I might have gone a little nuts. :D

The Buzz Books are still free and so is Bound to Love; free is their permanent price point.

  20. So glad your lungs are doing better! Nice book haul this week. I've seen those Buzz Books around, but I'm always afraid I'll get really excited about a book and then have to wait for it to come out. Maybe I'll give them a try, though. Oh, and I don't think you went overboard... I bought/downloaded 9 Kindle books this week, and I'm supposed to be cutting back. Oops!
