Not much to say here.  I was sick this past week. (When I got home from work Tuesday night my temp was 102.8 F.)  Between that and work, I didn't get much reading done.

 The post with Canadian children's books for the Canadian  Book Challenge mentioned last week.

A post on The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag.


  1. Sorry to hear that you didn't feel well this week. Hope that you feel better.


    PS: Can't wait to see what you think about the Flavia de Luce book.

    1. Thanks. I'm mostly better now. Just really tired.

      PS: It's coming soon!

  2. I hope you are beginning to feel a lot better. I'm thrilled to have won your cozy cull - an email is on its way!

    Have a great reading week

    1. I am feeling better, thanks. I'll get the book out to you soon.

  3. Hope you feel better soon! Enjoy your reading :)


  4. Does it really matter how many people participate in the giveaway as long as it’s one? Not sure if this matters, but it took a long time for the word to get around when I started giveaways. Of course, this was a long time ago, before publishers caught on to the benefits of giveaways. Even when my numbers grew, the best turnout was over the recently released or pre-released books.

    Hope you are feeling better soon. Getting sick is never fun!

    1. I'm afraid I'll run out of interest once everybody's won a book or two. Not to mention it does help with my motivation to read a book every week. Anyway, I figure asking people to spread the word isn't going to hurt.

  5. Do feel better! One of the things I hate about being sick is that it takes much needed time away from reading. Beyond Courage sounds like an important read. I've also been seeing The Weed that strings the Handman's Bag around - and the title alone is enough to pique my curiosity. Enjoy the rest of your reading week!

    1. You'd think a day off work would mean a day of reading, but the fever and throbbing head made that a no go.

      Beyond Courage is a juvenile book that, so far, I'd highly recommend adults reading too. There are so many inspiring stories I never knew.

      I kept seeing Alan Bradley's books around too before I finally started listening to them.

  6. Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well, hope you feel better soon!

    1. I am feeling mostly better. The worst was over with a day off work and sleeping.


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
