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 #91

 
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 are about sharing the print and digital books received and/or posts and events on the blog.

Weather-wise, it felt more like March than the end of May; life-wise, it was quiet. I like quiet. :D I got a lot of reading done, which makes me happy, and I enjoyed having Monday off for Memorial Day. One happy thing that happened, I was invited to become a reviewer at Romance at Random. I've done some guest reviews there in the past but now I'll be a regular reviewer. My first review will be up in July. 

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: Some new ones, "tiny bea escort review" and " quotes that make you smile on a bad day", and some returning ones, "nora roberts releases", "3d dimension asthma", and "devil in hell"

BOOKS! - click on the cover to go the book's goodreads page

Better get comfy, a LOT of books arrived last week. :D :D

When I went to the library to pick up the two books above, they were having their used book sale, and, well, I left with a paper bag full of books. Some are books I haven't read by favorite authors, some are authors I've been wanting to try, and a couple are completely new to me authors.

Umm, I have a lot. :D Some that I had requested previously finally came in and then I went nuts over at Edelweiss. I am now booked for reviews through the end of August and I have a couple scheduled for January 2015. Eeep.

  5. Wow, you got some good ones! From the library sale, I see some by favorite authors that I haven't yet read, like Nighttime is My Time and Swimming without a Net.

    When I saw your Nora Roberts Land, I was reminded that I have it...and want to read it soon! I also want to read The Lemon Orchard.

    Congrats on the reviewing honor...enjoy!

    Have a great week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. I used to love and dread those library sales, Bea! I inevitably ended up with books I'd never read because they were so cheap and I couldn't NOT buy them :))) Glad you had a quiet and peaceful week and had all your reading done, I love those and yay for all these delicious books, my dear!

  10. Congrats on Romance at Random! That is awesome.
    Those books sales are a blessing and a curse :)

    I also went a little nuts on Edelweiss and Netgalley and then I went to BEA and went completely insane, I have books every where and I need a least a year off to read them all :)

    I am looking forward to Jackaby I got a copy at BEA signed it really looks like a good book, can't wait to see what you think of it.

    Have an amazing week Bea!!!
    Enjoy all your new reads.

    1. LOL WE need to read 24/7 to get through all of our books. Used book sales are such a great way to get books for cheap and try new authors, they're like crack.

      I saw Jackaby in a book newsletter and loved the sound of it; I hope it'll be good.

      have a great week!

  11. Wow, you seriously had an exciting week Bea! Congrats on becoming a reviewer at Romance at Random! And you're so lucky even if my library has a sale….there are no books I would like to try out as they're all in Dutch >.<
