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 #88

 
http://www.talksupeblog.com/search/label/Bought%20Borrowed%20and%20Bagged

 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.

Oy, this week was all over the place, a real mix of ups and downs, but at least the weather was good and I'm making progress in whittling down my ARC pile. Of course, I also added ARCS so, umm, the total hasn't really changed. :D

To all the mothers among my readers, happy Mother's Day! I hope it's filled with books and special times.

Tomorrow is the start of Children's Book Week and I'm participating. I have lots of giveaways for books ranging from preschool to YA and a review every day, Tuesday through Sunday. Tomorrow's review and giveaway is a cozy mystery for a tour then I dive into kids books. There's also a blog hop so be sure to stop back!

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: Some fun new ones last week -
"a book written by my dog" and "devil in hell", plus some returning terms - "asthma lungs compared to normal lungs", "asthma model", "how to catch a cat", and "threesome"

BOOKS! - click on the cover to go the book's goodreads page

Gifted



A friend gave me this as a thank you for helping her when she had surgery; a very generous gift! I've been perusing my wish list, trying to decide what to get.
