I am really excited to participate in The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves hosted by Reading Reality.

My Life

This was a pretty quiet week. I spent much of last weekend watching football and am really looking forward to doing the same today. Go Chiefs! Other than that, I spent my week going to work, walking the dogs, writing reviews, and trying to figure out what to make for dinner. It is a glamourous life.

The only thing that I did outside of my regular routine was to go to the book sale at the Jewish Community Center near my house. I promised my husband that I wouldn’t buy too much. I lied. I have no regrets though since eI found a lot of books that I am excited to read and the price was right with hardcovers priced at $3 each and trade paperbacks were $2 each.

How was your week?

What I’m Reading

I finished 4 books this week. It was a really good week for audiobooks. I felt like I was flying through them during my days in the office. I finished Lethal Lies by Rebecca Zanetti early in the week and enjoyed it quite a bit. Then I moved on to Wanted and Wired by Vivien Jackson which I really liked. It was then time to listen to Hearts at Play by Melissa Foster. I finished Once Upon a Puppy by Lizzie Shane on Friday night and thought it was just as good as the other books in the Pine Hollow series.

I am halfway done with Hunt the Stars by Jessie Mihalik as I write this post and I am loving it. I have listened to just a few hours of Cold Days by Jim Butcher but I am very excited to be in Harry’s world once again.

Books Added

I went a little crazy at the book sale held at the local Jewish Community Center last weekend.

I have no regrets.

  2. I’ve read or am reading many of the books you are and loved them. WOW you did get some awesome books at the sale. I am a big fan of David Baldacci and just discovered him a couple years ago so now I am working on his excellent back list. There is not a thing wrong with a quiet week.

  3. I don’t follow football, but my mom had the game on when we were visiting this afternoon and I caught the very end of the game. I am glad you were able to find some great finds at the book sale. It’s best to buy them while you can–who knows when you will come across them at such a good price again, right? That’s my argument for not passing up a sale, anyway. 🙂 I hope you have a great week and enjoy your books!

  4. It’s hard to resist the books when it’s such a good deal, right? I’m struggling with where to put them all. I just set aside a bunch that I’m going to donate or giveaway on the blog. With preparing to list our house I’m trying to clean out whatever I don’t want to take with me. It’s a lot of work! I know you just went through the whole process not too long ago as well. I’m a little overwhelmed.

  5. I was so bummed to see the Chiefs blow that big lead they had in the first half. Now I kind of don’t care who wins the Super Bowl. It’s all about the food and the commercials now. LOL Hooray for the new (to you) books from the book sale!
