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 #160 My Dad's Funeral

 I'm participating in The Sunday Post, hosted by Caffeinated Book ReviewerStacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews; and Bought Borrowed and Bagged, hosted by TalkSupe. It's a chance to share the print and digital books we've received and posts and events on the blog.

Tomorrow I head out for my father's funeral. The funeral will be Wednesday at Arlington National Cemetery. I come back home on Thursday. I'm not taking my laptop so I won't be around much. I may pop online occasionally via my cell but don't expect me to visit or comment much.

The Week In Review


Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: Nothing new this week; "free lung models", "hosting my first reading challenge", and "playing with fire kate meader" were all back again. 

Re that last search term, I actually have a review of Playing with Fire by Kate Meader this Friday along with a giveaway.

Did you add any books to your shelves or e-readers last week? Leave a link and I will try to catch up on visits when I return home at the end of the week.

Thanks for visiting and happy reading! :)

    I need to check your review of Rolling in the Deep, I was curious about that one.

  6. Have a safe trip, Bea. I'm sure it will be very emotional, but also a sort of celebration of your dad's life that will bring your family closer together.
    Taking a break from the internet is all good. I'll be thinking of you and your family this week!

    1. Yes, this is a chance for his service to be recognized. He loved the Air Force and was proud to be in it.

      I'm glad you enjoyed catching up with Laura Anne. She's an interesting person.
