Welcome Saloners!!  Another week has quickly flown by,  at least it felt that way to me.    Matter of fact, I just checked my calendar to reflect and see what I did this past week.

Reading:  I only finished one book this week, which I am disappointed about.  Not disappointed in the book but that I only read one book.   I was on such a roll reading 2-3 books.  The book read was suspense packed and I gave it a 4 star.

I received a notification that I won a James Patterson book from Booking With Bingo.  Psyched!!  Two new books were received but I will share those tomorrow.  Even though I have soooo many books in my TBR pile, I anxiously wait for the mail and UPS every day and if there are no books delivered, I am disappointed.  Does that happen to you?  Haven’t decided what book I will be reading next and/or what I am in the mood for.  

Blogging:  As you all know, this past week was BEA.   Oh how I wish I could attend especially seeing it is only a 4 hour drive from where I live.  But due to my physical limitations with my back, I would never be able to walk around such a large venue and/or stand in lines.  However, I did participate in Armchair BEA, which was my first time.  I had heard about and seen it over the pat couple of years but had the impression that it was posts from those attending.  I stumbled upon the site via another blogger (so sorry can’t remember who it was) and signed up right away.  I can’t believe all the new blogs I visited and am still visiting.  Now that I know more about Armchair BEA, I will be participating next year and hopefully be better with the Twitter aspect of it.

I spent a lot of time on the computer, probably why I didn’t get much reading in, because I was drafting up advance posts for guest author showcases and giveaways.  I am swamped with them for June and July.  Plus I am the type that likes to have them done ahead of time in case RL interferes, I don’t have to scramble at the last minute.

How was your week?  Did you attend BEA and/or participate in Armchair BEA?

  1. I’m the same way – I know I don’t need any more books but I watch for deliveries every day.

    I had a great time at BEA and while I was there I noticed a lot of venues in NY aren’t all that handicapped friendly.

  2. Hi Cheryl,

    Last thing I need is more books as well. I’m kinda at the stage where I just want eBooks, then I don’t have to COUNT them LOL (they live in the cloud).
