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 #135 Easter Edition

 
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; and Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe. All of these memes are about sharing the print and digital books received and/or posts and events on the blog.

Do you watch the TV show "Bitten" which is inspired by Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld books? Season 2 is currently airing in Canada and Britain and I've been reading the most hilarious recaps in a private Facebook group. Some of us convinced her to blog her recaps. Well, the blog is up and running. I LOVE IT! WARNING: her recaps contain swearing, mega spoilers, and snark. They are friggin' awesome.

In other news it was a pretty good week. I signed a contract with an author to do copy edits for her next five books. I'm working on book one now. I also won an assortment of giveaways, see below, and every day has been warmer. There's not much snow left on the ground but there is still some (see pic below). I've started tearing apart the condo aka started spring cleaning. Today, I'm taking a break and having Easter brunch with some friends. Happy Easter to all who are celebrating today.

  9. I went a little nuts with the downloads this week...I purchased 4 books...and then when I requested some NetGalley books, I didn't realize that I would get four of them! I am new to NG, something I couldn't use with my old Kindle.

    Enjoy your week...those cozies look tempting. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  20. I'm glad your week was this good :) I started watching Bitten but the heroin got on my nerves, whining about having been turned without consent so I quit in spite of the hunks all around her. I hope you had a good time with your family, enjoy your book haul !

  21. The guy on the cover of Kodiak's Claim looks like the guy who plays Derek on the Teen Wolf tv series. :-) Great haul!

  23. I want to watch the show, but I haven't managed to read the books yet - so I'm waiting. Sounds like a fun blog though!

    I hate spring cleaning, but I did it too. It does feel good to have everything freshly organized and junk weeded out.

    Have a great week Bea!
