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

The Sunday Post Mailbox & Recap #10


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer
~this meme was inspired in part by - In My Mailbox~
It's a chance to share News. 
A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog. 

I can't believe how fast this week went by; I was busy at work and at home and now all of a sudden it's Saturday afternoon! My brother and I have been re-organizing and cleaning my condo, as well as looking at new flooring, so I haven't been online as much as I would have liked but the end results will be worth it. 
 
As a result of all this organizing, I actually now have ALL of my books unpacked!!! No more boxes of books in the store room. Now, I have gotten rid of a bunch too. I took 5 bags, 5 large bags, to the local used book store and I now have a store credit of $100. O_o That will keep me in books for a while. :D I also donated some to a local charity, gave some to family and friends, etc . All of which means I can now actually fit all of my print books on my existing book shelves. I'm not sure exactly how many print books I own, but I have 10 book shelves of varying heights in my one bedroom condo. That does include the shelving in the kitchen with the cookbooks. :D

So naturally, I acquired more books, both print and digital, this week. :D But first, the post recap.

  1. So, so many good books, Bea!!! I'm glad your condo is cleared now, and it's such a good feeling when you give your books away, isn't it? I also haven't mentioned it before but I'm glad for you that you'll be having your operation soon. *sending you a big hug*

  2. Thanks kara, I'm super excited, as you may have guessed. :D It did feel good to give books to new homes and know that someone else will enjoy them. I love having all of my print books on shelves, so much easier to find what I want, lol.
