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 #49

 

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.

This is the last week of my school's school year and then next week, vacation! Last week was quiet for me, but it was good. I had a bad moment one day at school when we thought one of the kids in my class was having an allergic reaction but happily it was a false alarm. It's hard to believe summer is almost over. :( I've been getting out for walks after work a couple nights a week, building up my strength and endurance. I need to lose weight and I've always enjoyed walking.

A 7" Kindle Fire, a $199US Amazon GC or $199US PayPal Cash, ends August 15th.

  5. I really want to read Frozen. I know the reviews are mixed but it sounds like such an interesting book.

    I cannot wait for summer to be over! Living in Central Florida, it won't feel like that until sometime in October.

    1. I haven't read any of the reviews yet but the blurb is very intriguing.
