Sunday Book Share #168

http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/category/sunday-post Sunday Book Share, The Sunday Post, Stacking the Shelves, Bought Borrowed & Tagged

 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.

I had a busy week at school and reading books for the Ho Ho Ho Read-a thon. I got a little bit behind on reviews but I'll get caught up. This week is the American Thanksgiving and my school is closed Thursday and Friday so I'll have a 3 day work week. Not too shabby. :) I may start writing my Christmas cards; most years I run late with cards. If you're celebrating Thanksgiving, what are your plans?   

The Week In Review

Odd, interesting, or funny search phrases leading to the blog: "happy birthday barbara gif" Sorry, no Barbaras here. :D  "jane yellowrock sex scenes", "cute thanksgiving animals", and "the vaxcbletyt upon a cool motorcycle dude"

  1. I love a short week. And when it comes with a feast so much the better! Seriously though I can't believe it's this week.

    The cat seems to approve of your new book. :) And On Thin Icing looks fun. Have a super Sunday, and a good week.

  6. I have to make my Christmas cards too but I need to wait until the decorations go up so I can take a picture of the kids by the tree.

    Congrats on all your wins!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Bea! Happy Reading! ox

  8. Extra days off -- that's one thing I miss about working for others. (I like the flexibility of self-employment, though.) Mr. Bookwyrm only gets Thursday, but we'll have a nice quiet Thanksgiving.

    Nice books this week! I've been wanting to start that Sally Goldenbaum series. And I've been debating whether to request A Prisoner in Malta, but I think I'll stick to my resolution not to request books unless I will definitely read them anyway.

    Have a lovely week and a wonderful Thanksgiving, and give your kitties an extra pat for me.

    1. Bummerr Mr Bookwyrm only gets Thanksgiving off; I hope you all enjoy your time together. Trimmed with Murder was my first Goldenbaum book but I really enjoyed it. I'll read more by her.

      Happy Thanksgiving and have a good week!

    2. I just found a copy of the Goldenbaum book on the library sale shelf, so I picked it up. [hangs head] I'm incorrigible.

    3. LOL I really liked it; I hope you do too. :D

  10. I started to listen to Nuts, but I wasn't thrilled with the narration. So I decided to hold off and just read the book.

  11. I forget every single year about Christmas cards! I need to sit down and just do them. lol

    My kids also have Weds off, so only a 2-day week for them. This is the first year in over 20 yrs that my husband has to work Thanksgiving Day. It's ridiculous! He works in a manufacturing facility and they are making 5 people come in as well as a manager (my husband). Because heaven knows, that ONE day is going to make all the difference in their bottom line espeically considering they won't be running with a full staff. Yeah, I'm pissed. *grumble grumble*

    Have a great week, Bea!
