Sunday Book Share #162

 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Caffeinated Book ReviewerStacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews; and Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe. It's a chance to share the print and digital books we've received and posts and events on the blog.

A quiet week here, not much going on. The weather warmed up again, hitting 70 most days, with lots of sunshine. It was perfect October weather even with the pouring rain on Friday.  It was a quiet work week, and I'm still looking for a full-time teaching job.

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog:  "cat and red dot", "murder one by dugoni on nook"

Blog Ahead Challenge - My goal for the challenge is 31 posts written and scheduled for November and beyond. I have 21, going to the end of January. A lot of them are memes but it's still 21 posts I don't have to think about. I have about another half dozen or so, including reviews, in drafts.

From author Penny Watson, her newest book, A Taste of Heaven, a bar of soap, and lip balm.

    Nice on Blog Ahead. I got some of my SciFi Month posts scheduled out so that was nice, I usually wing it so that's progress. :)

    White Trash Zombie looks like a trip! And I might have to give Trident Code a look.

    1. It's such a fun series isn't it? With a layer of depth that can be explored or ignored at the reader's preference. We need rain too but I will happily send it your way as you need it even more.

  18. Did the soap smell good?

    Oh lawd! When am I going to get the chance to read WTZ???

    Replies
    1. The soap does smell good and yes, you need to read or listen to WTZ! Do eeet!

  19. Yay for blogging ahead! They are still posts so I think you are doing good by the standards :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. That is some awesome Blog Ahead schedule you're putting together! Congrats to you on a good job!
    I chuckled when I saw the gift package you received, including a bar of soap. I immediately thought of a really old (Irish? British?) expression that my Mom used to say, maybe you've heard of it: "It's like taking coals to Newcastle". Meaning you have plenty of soap and it's overkill :) But not really, because that one looks like it would smell yummy good, so nice gift set for you.

    I'm interested in the Burton book and have been seeing it around and read her a few years ago.

    1. Heh, yeah, the soap was a bit like bringing coal to Newcastle (I think it's an English expression) but that company does make nice soaps and I occasionally like ti check out my competition so it's all good. :)

      Lots of interest in the Burton book, yay!

  21. I've got to get my hands on White Trash Zombie Gone Wild. I love the series! Nice wins this week. It seems like a lot of people are having a quiet week. Probably the calm before Halloween. LOL

    1. Thanks! Halloween is generally quiet in my neighborhood but yeah, that may be part of it. I liked the quiet, it's good sometimes. :)

  24. Way to go on Blog Ahead, Bea! I only have seven posts so far... and those are all memes, too. I have to sit down and crank out some reviews, these days, I seem to read a lot, once I finish a book, I pick up the next. But no review.
    Have a fantastic week and happy reading.

    1. Thanks! I have some reviews to crank out too. I tend to let them build up as I like to them marinate in my brain or a bit before I start writing.

  25. The Mary Burton book looks so good but I need to read the previous book first.

    I'm loving the October weather...we're having the same kind as you.

    Hope you have a great week!

    1. Yeah, I love October weather; a nice halfway between spring and winter and the foliage is beautiful. You can read the Burton books as stand alones since each book features a different couple. You do miss out a bit on the family interactions but the books still work.
