Sunday Post #47

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share new about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

~~~~~~~~~~

*sigh* It's the weekend. Thank whoever created them. We had the accountant in at work last week, closing out books for 2013. That is done and over with and we can move on to this year. But having the accountant in is always stressful - seeing the results of everyone's hard work.

So, not much reading at lunch hour this past week. And the evenings are starting to fall into some resemblance of a routine. I've been reading while on the treadmill and seem to be working different things into the schedule, with the kiddo's sports. It's....working? Well, for last week. lol.

But, other than that not much to talk about here. Quite is good. Now, on to what is happening on the blog with books!

  1. I haven't read any of your above-mentioned books, but that is the beauty of this meme: discovering new titles. Thanks for sharing, and I will be sure to stop back this week :)

  2. Wow indeed! It's good to have those weeks because then you get a chance at breaking down the TBR mountain! I don't think I've ever had one of those. Have always gotten at least 1 book!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  9. I've had to learn to squeeze in reading when I can too--audio books have helped a lot with this. I didn't think I'd be able to get into them, but thankfully, I am! I still have a ton to catch up actually reading though too. The list never seems to end. Have a great week and hope you are still able to sneak in that reading whenever you can. :)

    1. Kat Morrisey, I listen to a lot of podiobooks. I had troubles with audiobooks as it doesn't seem to hold my interest. I really love the various voices and sound effects that go with it. They are amazing to listen too. Thank you! :)

  10. I suppose it does help that it's longer light in the evening, I feel I've got a bit more energy. Won't last :) You still have a lot of reviews coming up… you have been busy. Have a great week and Happy Reading!

  12. What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank sounds like a lot of fun; it's already on my to-read list. I haven't gotten much of my TBR list read this month; a project that should have been done by March 10 ended up taking until today. I can't wait to dig into my TBR books now that it's DONE!
