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 #84

 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer; Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits and Tea; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe, and Library Loot co-hosted by The Captive Reader and Silly Little Mischief. All of these memes give book bloggers the chance to share print and digital books they've received, and the posts and events at their blogs.

I took some time off last week to go see my dad. He's sliding downhill but rallied while I was there and seemed happy to see me. He has Alzheimers, among other health problems, so his recognizing me is a big deal. The week ended with my birthday and I'm doing a giveaway to celebrate; be sure to enter.

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: A mix of old and new last week - "threesome", "how to catch a cat", "nora roberts dark witch trilogy release dates", "nora roberts new releases", "zero day novel summary", and "c.s. lewis memes"

The cookie was a thank you gift from author Carol P. Roman for reviewing her books and the print of Beast from the Jane Yellowrock books was a birthday gift from author Faith Hunter. I'm on her street team.

  1. One of my favorite books is Nerd in Shining Armor by Vicki Lewis Thompson. I now have a new book to look forward to reading. Thanks Bea.

  2. I always love when people post the words that get people to their blogs... I have look at mine several time and they are just never funny like everyone's. I see you are joining the ARC reading challenge that I am hosting. I hope you have a lot of fun!!

  3. Happy birthday! Hope it was nice... Sorry to hear about your dad, Alzheimer's is terrible.

    You got some interesting looking books this week, I think Dog Gone, Back Soon sounds cute.

  4. War for The Oaks is gorgeous, great example of one of the first books in UF at a time. Sad about your dad, hugs, darling. Hope you have a nice quiet week, regardless.

  5. Happy birthday again ! I looooooove the sweet treat you were sent, it's so cute ! I sympathize for your dad, my mom is developing Alzheimer too... The cover of War for the oaks is beautiful in a retro way :) Have a great week, hun !

  6. It's really hard when someone you love has Alzheimer's. On a brighter note, happy birthday! :) Have a great week :) my sunday post:

  7. Happy birthday! :) I'm sure it was nice to see your dad doing a bit better near your birthday. Happy reading and have a great week!

  8. Happy Birthday! My grandmother has Alzheimer's too, so I totally get what you mean by recognizing someone being a big deal. I see my grandmother so rarely because I live abroad, so she probably won't remember me anymore when I go back during the summer...
    Happy reading and have a good Sunday!

  9. Alzheimer's is a cruel disease…. sorry your dad and you have to cope with it and I can imagine what big deal it was that he recognised you, so enjoy every minute of it as much as you can.
