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 #42


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. 

It's been a good week; work went well, the book fairy was very generous to me, my family is doing well, and even the weather has been good. I am now the only one of four siblings holding down a paying job: my brother, the oldest of us, is currently unemployed but lives with and takes care of our parents; one sister took a medical disability retirement years ago (I am the model of textbook health next to her) and the other sister, though healthy and only in her fifties, retired last week. It feels...odd to be the only one employed. 

The Week In Review


Odd or interesting search phrases for the blog: "hot to catch a cat", "books with red covers", "exerps fromerotic romance novels", and "how to write a book in dog perspective"

I won this from the author. I also won some print books by David Baldacci in a different giveaway but they haven't arrived yet.

These are all for blog tours this summer. Carol will be reviewing "Being Me" as well as the first book, "If I Were You".

Review - Kindle

SQUEE! This is, or was a few days ago, available as a READ NOW on NetGalley. Go get it!

Review - Audio Books contacted me about doing a review of their site and services and proved me with store credits to purchase two books. I may review one or both books, not sure yet, but the book review will likely be separate from the site review.
