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 #33




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.

This was such a looooooong week. Not only did I have a lot going on at work and personally but then the Boston Marathon bombing happened. I live in a Boston suburb and knew someone running there; he was okay, thank goodness. On Thursday, the suspects shot a cop and on Friday morning, some cities were locked down. Several of my co-workers including my boss were in those cities and couldn't get to work, and one was a close friend of the murdered cop. I am very glad that it's over now and we can get to healing and rebuilding.

After several weeks of behaving myself with the freebies, last week I indulged again. Oh well, they're free and take minimal space. :D


Don't forget to leave a link so I can visit. May you have a peaceful, book-filled week.

  2. The Mist Torn Witches looks interesting, and I totally have been trying to slow down on the freebies...but, I think I'm addicted *shrugs* Could be worse things to be addicted too, I suppose. :D Have a fantastic week!

    1. Yeah, the Witches book looks very promising, and you're right, there are much worse things to be addicted to for sure.

  3. Oh sweetheart, I'm sorry you've been caught by all this and my condolences to your friend :(
    I am secretly craving your paperback pile - it's got so many shiny lovelies! I really want them myself, especially the Havoc Machine and The Bronze Gods.

    1. LOL Somehow, I thought you might like my print pile. :D :D If you were closer, we could share. Oh well.

      It was a hellish week and more so for my co-worker. I don't understand people like that. :(

  8. I didn't know you were in Boston. I am so sad that it was such a rough week for you all. I hope you are able to get back to normal now that the bad guys are caught. Hopefully you escaped into a good book. I thought the turtle book was really neat. I am starting Bronze Gods here soon as I have a tour post for it!

    1. I'm enjoying the turtle book so far except for all the stuff the copy editor missed.

      I'll definitely have to check out your tour psot for Bronze Gods. :)

      It was a rough week but I'm hoping life will get back to normal now. Thanks.

  11. I'm glad your friend the runner is all right. Such a horrific event, and the subsequent manhunt and lockdowns have to have been stressful, too. Our thoughts are with you; I wish you (and all those in greater Boston) healing and peace.

    Enjoy your books this week! I always find reading very restorative when I'm stressed.

  12. How scary. My son is a runner, and a whole group of his friends were there and had just passed the finish line when it happened. Some of them are still a little shook up from it. All of it is so sad.

    Well, you definitely got some interesting looking book this week. Hope you enjoy them. :)

    Great Freebies! I entered a couple of your giveaways.
