Sunday Book Share #107

 
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.

Summer is gone! The weather has cooled off considerably and I'm sleeping with a blanket now; during the summer I just used a sheet. This is my kind of weather - sunny blue sky, crisp air with a slight bite, and cool evenings. Claude and Goof are tolerating each other and Claude is spending more time out of my bedroom. I didn't get the teaching job but I did sign with a publisher for part-time editing and I am now a personal assistant to author Cara Covington. I still need a full-time job but things are looking up. :)

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: Nothing too exciting but a few good ones: "cat catch red dot", "how to catch a cat", "an interesting quote from enter three witches" ?? no idea, "how does sandra browns book mean streak end?" (sorry, you'll have to read it to find out), and "hotsex.blogspot.com".

Won

I forgot to post this last week. I won a $10 Amazon gift card from Because Reading Is Better Than Real Life as part of the the COYER Summer Vacation Challenge. Thanks!

Gifted

Okay, are you comfy? Cuz this a long one. Remember that I said I am working with an author now? Well, she gifted me all of her books that I didn't already own. <3 Two of them are part of crossovers with another author and that author also gifted me her books. Whew! I am a fortunate woman.

Purchased

I snagged some 99 cent deals using the Amazon gift card I won from from Because Reading and 1 book that was $1.99. I got 13 books for under $5 :)

10 books for less than a dollar; I don't even care that I already own 2 of them. :D

  10. Congrats on the part-time job, maybe it will lead to better things in the future! What a great haul! You think your kindle needs to go on a diet..well I got a note from Amazon that told me I'm out of memory and need to go through and take things off because I have things waiting to download but no memory!!!!! I think that just means I need a new kindle so I can have more space..hehehe. :)

  20. That's great that you're getting some freelance work, Bea. I hope something full-time comes along soon, too. And holy cow, that's a lot of books this week! You'll be busy through Thanksgiving with all that lot!

    Now that my big project is behind me, I'm hoping to start enjoying the cooler weather. Fall and spring are my favorite times of year!

    Did I read correctly - you call your ereader "Scotty?" I love it! I'm still trying to think of a good name for mine. :-)
