The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog…
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists….
Hello everyone. I haven’t done an updates/mailbox post in a few weeks. I’ve been enjoying my summer, I hope you have been as well. I went away on vacation, came back and stood on vacation mode for a few weeks after that. I took the pic above by the lake on vacation, it was so peaceful and I enjoyed the view very much.
We’ve had a rainy couple of weeks here with flash flooding yesterday and I’m hoping the rain lets up. With all the rain yesterday I didn’t go out to run my usual Saturday errands but I finished reading my book so that was good.
I also enjoyed doing this on vacation last month, crochet. There is something to be said for not having any set schedule, sleeping in, staying up late, taking an afternoon nap and soaking in the sun every day.
On the blog: I read and reviewed since July (I’ve been on a thriller kick lately).
–Along Came A Spider by James Patterson (I raved about how the author re-tweeted)
In my mailbox these few weeks:
There is a library in town that I like to visit while away on vacay and I found these used books there on sale. Have you read any of these? I was happy to find Mary Balogh, Karin Slaughter and James Patterson hardcovers. I couldn’t resist.
I love this trade paperback/ harlequin romance by Jennifer Blake circa 1983, it’s in great condition. I had to have it for my book stash. I plan on reading it.
Coming soon on the blog for August:
Reviews of The Haunting of Mount Cod: A Laura Boxford Mystery, Sister of Mine and An Everyday Thing.
**Also of note, I’ve been visiting a few of your blogs this week and leaving comments, but my comments aren’t showing up. I know some of you approve your comments before they are allowed but I haven’t gotten any messages telling me my comment will be approved by the blog moderator. I wonder if I’m going directly to spam? It’s happened more than once. Any thoughts? **
I’ll close with a few more vacation pics. I’m going to split them up with this week’s updates and next week’s too. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. What have you been up to? How is your summer going?
I mostly only drink beer in the summer time and it’s always Landshark. I’ve come to associate it with lazy summer days.
Chatting by the fire-pit at night was always a nice way to end our days.
One of our cabin bedroom windows had this cozy picture-like view of the stairs/wooded path behind us.
Early mornings reading in bed while everyone was still asleep was great. James Patterson was a good vacation book pick because it was a fast paced thriller that held my interest.
As the sun was setting I’d sit on the dock and enjoy the view….
and as it was rising it was very peaceful and serene….
That covers my weekly updates. I wish I was still on vacation! Thanks for stopping in and enjoy your week 🙂
