Sunday Post – 10/26/14

October 26, 2014 Sunday Post 24

The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week, take a look ahead, and showcase our new treasures – I mean books!

My Week

This week has been crazy busy with indexing work, and the next two look even busier, so posts will be a bit on the sparse side for a bit, and visiting blogs is something I can only dream of. I knew this was coming when I took three projects on at once, but I didn’t realize how rough it would be!

Mr. Bookwyrm and I celebrated my birthday this week; he made me dinner and a cake. And my voice teacher is back in town after a few weeks off, so I had a good lesson on Friday.

I did make it back to the library book sale, this time as a cashier. (Yes, of course I bought more books! I have absolutely no willpower when it comes to library sales. LOL)  Other than that, I haven’t got much to report; it’s pretty much been work around the clock.

Looking back on what I just wrote, it sounds like a lot of complaining, and I don’t mean to. I’m really grateful for the work and the income. I wish the scheduling had worked out a little better, but given that a year ago I was hardly getting any projects at all, I’m really pleased with where I am now!

New Additions to the Hoard

For Review

Nothing this week, thank goodness; I’m swamped as it is!

From the Library Book Sale

I bought about 20 paperbacks when I cashiered for the book sale on $5-a-box day. I won’t list all the titles, but most of them were Nora Roberts romances or romantic suspense, plus a smattering of Susan Mallery and one or two other authors. At a quarter each, I figure it’s cheaper than the gas I’d use going to the library to check them out there!

Bought for my Kindle




Rick Riordan_Heroes of Olympus #5_Blood of Olympus

I went a little overboard on the Kindle books this month – but everything was on sale except Blood of Olympus, and I had to buy that one because my library copy was due and unrenewable, and I wasn’t finished yet!

 Happy reading, everybody!

    I love library sales! I went to a 3.00 fill a bag recently, and that was such fun and gave me excuse to try new authors that I might not have thought of.

    I had a busy week with company staying with us, but I finally went and read through your posts this week and enjoyed your TTT and added a couple to my wishlist, and your review of 1927, which my husband has as an e-book but unread yet. Enjoy your work with a positive attitude– you said yourself that last year was much quieter for you. Hope you do well and still get time to read.

      Thank you Rita! Yes, book sales are a great chance to try new authors as well as stock up on backlists of authors you like. And I’m glad you enjoyed your company – it sounded like a lovely visit!

    I need to get busy and read Dark Witch so I can move on with this trilogy…maybe this week?

    It’s the season.

    I’ve read the first book in the Inn at Boonsboro trilogy…want to get back to it.

    And I loved The Collector.

    Enjoy your week, and happy birthday! I had one yesterday! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

      It’s a great season to read the whole Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy – and book three comes out on Tuesday! Glad to hear you enjoyed the Inn Boonsboro books; they look good and they take place in my home state (even though I haven’t lived there for 24 years.)

    • Lark_Bookwyrm

      That’s true. But as I said, I am grateful for the work; last year was pretty slow, and now I’ve got work through January, except for about half of November. (Which is fine; I have plans for that time! [rubs hand together gleefully])

    Happy birthday! And yay for library sales- at 25 cents a pop you can’t go wrong. I just love getting used books cheap like that… especially when you find a real gem. Enjoy the additions, and good luck with the indexing!

      Thanks, Greg! Yes, that’s pretty much my feeling with 25-cent books, and since I stuck to authors I already like, I should have pretty good luck with them.
