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 #152

 
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.

Another busy week at work. We said goodbye to some children who are leaving, some to kindergarten and a few to new preschools. I have a lead on a new car, my mechanic will look it over on Tuesday. So naturally, my current car got a flat on the way home from work Friday night. I had to wait for AAA to tow the car and then wait for a friend to come get me, but you know, it wasn't a bad night. I was in a shopping plaza waiting for AAA so I popped into the grocery store and got a sandwich, chips and drink for dinner while I waited for the truck. He drove to my auto place, left the car and I there, and I sat outside on a bench, talking with one friend on my cell phone while waiting for another friend to pick me up. The weather out was beautiful, dry air, comfortable temperature, and no mosquitos. It wasn't the worst way to spend an evening. But I hope this car I'm looking at pans out.

  1. Good luck with the car! Sounds like you made the best of bad situation on Fri night. :) That Agatha Christie set looks awesome, that would look nice on a shelf. Like the cover Firefly hollow...

    You're kicking butt on the challenges too, especially COYER. I'm doing good with COYER (for me) but may try to step up a bit...

    1. I'm doing well with COYER if you ignore the fact that I'm not doing any of the read-a-thons or scavenger hunts. I just don't have time for those. Good luck to you!

  3. Hope you get the car problems figured out soon!! I am pretty excited to read "Even Vampires Get The Blues" Sandra Hill just has the best humor in her books.

  5. You got the Miss Marple set! :-) And I see a few Avon Addicts books in there. They're going to keep us busy, I think!

    Sorry about your car, but at least you had a relatively pleasant evening despite it. I hope things work out for the new one.

    Have a wonderful week!

  11. School starts early (ends late) in your area. You're in Boston right? Is it because of the super snow from last winter?

  12. I hope you get the new car Bea... sounds like you need a little upgrade. At least you were able to catch up with a friend while waiting.
    Enjoy the new reads!

  13. I saw that Sandra Hill book, Even Vampires Get the Blues and I thought about it but I wasn't sure if I needed to read any of the previous books. I'm trying to be better about that. But that guy on the cover is really talking to me :)

    Good luck on the possible car!!!!!!
