Sunday Book Share #39


I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; 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. 

Last week was an exhausting week. I had a lot going on at work, with the blog and in my home life. I lay down for a little while yesterday afternoon and woke up three and a half hours later. Oops. Oh well, I obviously needed it. The next few weeks are also busy ones so I'll have to grab my sleep where I can. Summer heat finally arrived. We went from low 70's and rain to mid 90's and sunny. I suspect the heat was a factor in yesterday's exhaustion as I was out in it for about seven hours. Still, I'm glad it's warmed up. It feels like summer now. :D
