Sunday Book Share #63

 
 

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 give book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received and posts and events at their blogs.

Last week was busy and stressful at work, ended on a high Friday when one of my two yea olds told me I was the best teacher :D, I won a GC, received some unexpected swag, and went to a wine and cheese social at a local bookstore, then took a turn for the worse on Saturday when I finally succumbed to the stomach and intestinal bug that's been going around school. I'd like to go back in time to Friday please, it was an excellent day.


The Week In Review




Odd or funny search phrases leading to the blog: Some new ones this week! "library girl pin up" and "why sleep when you can meme" :D

  3. I am chuckling over how Faith Hunter mailed the vampire stake to you. Very cool that you are on her street team! I haven't read her books yet--I am very picky about my UF-- but sounds like she is a winner for you. Have a good week.

      If you get a chance, try her books, but read in order! I got the first few from the library and enjoyed them.

      Have a good week.

  16. Isn't it great when your kids tell you you're a good teacher or that they love you? I'm sorry, though, that your week came to an unpleasant end. Stomach bugs, yeuch. I hope you're feeling better now.
