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 #110

 
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; and Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe. All of these memes are about sharing the print and digital books received and/or posts and events on the blog.

Life is feast or famine sometimes. Last week I received a job offer, accepted it, and then 24 hours later I got a second job offer. Oy. The first one was for part-time and the second was full-time. Both were good options but I need the full-time pay and benefits. It sure feels good to be wanted! To celebrate being employed, I bought books, lol. Actually, I went a little nuts with books all around - buying, pre-ordering, and also requesting review copies.

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog:
"first read about jane, then write about you" - I have no idea :D
"aug 29, 2010 · luckily for me, he's not very fast yet, so i have a little more time before i have to grow another set of eyes. ... alana's blog. followers. blog archive" - again, no idea *smh* "connah frank! book" - hey, this is from a review on the blog! "3d view of lungs" - again, one that comes from the blog. :)


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

I went a tad nuts with books. Some pre-orders downloaded, I ordered some books, requested some for review, won some books, and received some unsolicited books for review. Yeah, I fell off the 'no new books' bandwagon big time. :D

Won 

I won both of these in Facebook parties. :)

  5. Congrats on the job! That's a perfectly acceptable reason to buy books... I think the new Copernicus and Eight The Hard Way both look good. I'll have to look into those a little more.

    I do like that cover for Thor's Serpents. The first two books in this series have caught my eye, but I haven't read them yet...
