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 #25




I'm participating in Feed My Reader Friday hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A WriterThe Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer, and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. These  memes allow book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received, and different posts and events at their blogs.

Hello from the snowy northeast area of the US! For the third weekend in a row, Mother Nature has seen fit to dump snow on us. I'm really not feeling the love for Mother Nature right now. At least it's a good excuse to curl up the couch, snuggle with the cat, edit, read and watch TV.

Speaking of the cat, you may have noticed that he's much more prominent now. I played around with the picture I had up there, which was much smaller. Now, instead of being too small, he's too big. Sigh. I'll leave it as is for now and keep fiddling on the laptop until I get it a better size. Although, it was a reasonable size when I previewed it. Grrrr.

Anyway, it was a quiet week on the blog and this week will be also. I'm putting in more hours at school and finishing up some edits for deadline. Deadlines are evil. Just sayin'.

  1. Very nice haul Bea. I like the cover with the Collie on it. My old dog was a Shetland Sheepdog. So that cover brings back fond memories. Who doesn't love freebies. I love the freebies.
