Here we are again, rambling on about our thoughts, our feelings, and our perspectives. Join our host at Bookishly Boisterous, to see what others are chatting about.
Since we were here last, I participated in Bloggiesta, and had such fun making changes here at my “newest old blog” here at WP. Yes, there is a story. I created this blog on Blogger in August 2009, just before I took a week’s vacation in the Napa Valley. I moved it here in December, but only the last year of posts…the idea of importing everything, and correcting links, etc., was overwhelming.
But the theme of the blog and its essence remain…
Earlier this week, I was musing about books, etc., and responded to a question about how many books I have on my shelves with a wild estimate: 2000.
Then I decided to count them, actually count them, so I did. Yesterday. 1435 books, including those on Sparky. Not quite 2000, but getting too close. And my recent purging may have eliminated around 500 books or so; I might have been closer than I thought!
So I decided to do a giveaway here. I created a book nook over at An Interior Journey, but moved it here and called it Blue Mondays Book Nook.
And I added a few more books.
There are forty books there at this moment…I will probably add more. I have linked them to Amazon so visitors can study them. The Blue Mondays Giveaway goes until the end of the month.
Last week, I enjoyed a spa day, of sorts, getting my nails and hair done. I felt very good afterwards. I think I’ll regularly combine nails and hair, since I can do that at the salon where my daughter has a space she rents. Here she is, showing off purple extensions she put in during her down time. In other words, when my hair was processing…LOL.
This week, I have enjoyed a variety of books, like Call Me Zelda (click for review).
And then, a novel from another new-to-me author, Randy Susan Meyers: The Murderer’s Daughters (click for review).
Currently, I am almost finished with Still Life, my first foray into Louise Penny’s crime fiction…and I’m loving it!
How do you feel about multiple series books? When you get hooked, is it hard to keep up with them all? I am pondering this….but then, I think I’ll go with the flow.
What was your week like?
