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 #44


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.

I'm meeeelting! It's been 90+ degrees here and my A/C is not keeping up.At least I have A/C. Thursday was the US's Independence Day and I had the day off. Goof and I watched the fireworks on TV. :) Right now he's sprawled on the laminate floor, in front of the oscillating fan. Yes, it's so hot I have fans and A/C going. 

Today, I'll be focusing on edits. My author returned her MS but she surprised me. We were just doing proofing, catching errors before it went to formatting but she re-wrote sections so now I have to do copy edits and proofing on the whole thing and get it turned in for Monday. That may affect my planned reviews for the week. How was your week? Staying cool?

The Week In Review

Odd or interesting search phrases for the blog: "how to catch a cat", "dear diary cat", "childrens books told from the dogs perspective" (calling J.A. Campbell!), "what done beas dog hunt", erm what? and "exerps fromerotic romance novels"

  1. "childrens books told from the dogs perspective"

    I just added that phrase to some of my tags on my website. Thank you!!!


  2. Yup, we have the AC and fans going too. I can tell it's getting too warm when all the animals find a fan and lay on their backs in front of them.

    Enjoy your books, Bea!

  3. We just getting pleasantly warm here :) he-he... but I remember sweltering summers in Russia where I had to sleep on the floor it was that hot at night, and the AC was only in my parents room :)
    Hope you'll be able to finish editing in time to enjoy your books, Bea! I like The Candidate with that gorgeous blue dress. Enjoy!

  4. Great book haul! Those search phrases for the blog cracked me up! "Dear diary cat" might be my favorite. :D It's been hot here too-well, more humid than hot which makes the air outside feel soupy and gross. And that's the reason why I prefer spring and fall in central NY state to Summer! Have a great day, stay cool and happy reading!

  5. I could use some of your heat. We are cool and foggy here. The Kat Martin book looks good. I have Paperback Books Swap credits to use and should do some shopping. Come and see what I got at Ms. Martin Teaches Media and Inside of a Dog. I had huge weeks. Happy reading!

  6. I think this is the warmest it has been so far, and raining like crazy. Ugh. Enjoy the new additions.

  7. Best of luck getting the edits done...again. :) Skinny Bitch in Love caught my eye awhile back. I read the non fiction books for the same author and love her wit. Enjoy.

    My Weekend Update...

  8. You picked up Skinny Bitch in Love! I think I'm going to listen to that one next! It sounds like fun and a great way to stay calm while commuting!

    My Added to the Bookshelf post!

  9. Sweet you got a Kat Martin book! Nice haul and you and the kitties need to keep cool. Have a lovely day Bea:)

  10. I really need to read some of Melissa Bourbon's romantic suspense. I love her cozies!

    Happy Reading!!

  11. I know what you mean about the heat, it's hot where I am too. Nice set of books you have there. Hope things cool off for you and enjoy your week! :)

  12. Ooo, that Kat Martin book looks very interesting. I've read a few of hers some years ago, and I liked them. I'll have to look into that one. Enjoy your goodies and happy reading :)

  13. All of your books look so good. Enjoy!

    I know what you mean about the heat. I'm not holding up very well.

    Have a great week!

  14. I think I've made this pun before, but you were a very busy Bea this week! I'm sorry to hear about your AC; hope you get it working better soon. Good luck with your editing! I know what it's like to be working weekends -- it's one of the hazards of working freelance, too.

    Enjoy your new books, and thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

  15. You got some very interesting books. Your freebies are books that I must have missed. Thanks for stopping by my STS earlier sweetie.


  16. Wow! Lots going on. Hope your ac catches up for you. We had ours break last week, someone let the Freon out! But we are back to normal now.

    Have a great week. And try to stay cool.

  17. We have cooled off into the just right temperature zone. Loving it! Oh Skinny Bitch in Love, I will be interested to see what you think of that one. I liked it but the romance drove me nuts!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from my readers. Let's talk!
