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 #109

 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 are about sharing the print and digital books received and/or posts and events on the blog.

I had several interviews this week and both were promising. I should know more next week. Today I'm going apple picking then I have to get busy making sugar scrubs, bath salts, and melt and pour soaps to sell at a flea market next Monday. What are your plans? Anything fun or exciting?

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: Another mix of old and new this week - 'jax erotica book series', 'ear burning photo quotes', 'elin hilderbrand husband' (what is this sudden obsession with her husband?), 'hotel carina pride', 'men swag 2014', 'identity crisis (crimson romance)', and 'how to catch a cat'.
