Sunday Post – 3/09/14

March 9, 2014 Sunday Post 25

The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the wonderful Kimba, the 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.

I’m still working hard on the the index, but the end is getting closer. More importantly, Robin comes home tonight! She’ll be here for almost a week, on spring break. I can’t wait!

On the blogging side of things, a meh week, since I had almost no time for anything but working. OTOH, I did get a bunch of new goodies for my Kindle… What was that resolution about cutting back, exactly?  Maybe I should have given up acquiring new books for Lent.

On second thought, definitely not.  😉

Last week on the blog: 

The coming week:

  • Mon. 3/10/14: Are self-published authors “real” authors? One writers’ union opens its ranks

  • Sat. 3/15:  News & Notes – 3/15/14

Added to the hoard:

For review:

Thanks to St. Martin’s/Minotaur!

Kindle books, purchased and free:

Yeah, I went a little crazy this week…

Gifted or Won:
I won this delightful paperback thanks to Lori at Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book!

Received for entering a contest – if you want these (and three more freebies) plus a chance to win a Kindle Fire HDX or another e-reader, check out the Lucky Charms contest!

From the library:
A good one for the TBR Pile challenges I’m doing.

Have a great week!

    WOW, fantastic book week! I got the books for entering the Lucky Charms giveaway too and I got Murder at Honeychurch Hall.

    Good luck finishing up the indexing.

    YAY for Scarlet! I love the Lunar Chronicles! Splintered has been on my TBR list too. And I hope you enjoy having Robin home for a week! Happy reading!

      When the library said they wanted Scarlet back and I was only half-way through!, I figured I would just bite the bullet and buy it. I already have Cinder for Kindle, so I guess I’ve committed to getting the whole set. 🙂

      I know exactly what you mean. I’m not picking up as many freebies any more, but I do jump on bargains when it’s a book I know I’ll enjoy, or have enjoyed and would like to read again.

    Trying to cut back never works so for lent I gave up cutting back 🙂
    Great haul! So many pretty books. I hope you enjoy them all.

    Have a great week

      Several days into Lent and I don’t quite know what I’m giving up… but I’m trying to make it procrastinating. (I’m being ironic, but truthful.)

      Enjoy your week, Michelle!

    The silence of the library – the title cracks me up, mine is never really silent ! Have a nice sunday and love your dragon banner, by the way 🙂

    • Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      I know; ours isn’t either. But it looks like a great mystery.

      I’m glad you like the dragon banner! That’s my bookwyrm shelf-sitter. He moves from room to room periodically. Right now he’s sitting by my Anne McCaffrey Pern novels; they’re about dragons so I figured he’d be happy there.

    River Road must be good if it kept you up late! Love it when books do that- unless I have to get up early the next day! 🙂

    The Jessica Day George books look cute, we enjoy her stuff (what we’ve read) around here. Oath of Fealty looks good, too, I’ve heard of the Paks stories but never read them.
