It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday - Nov 1

Welcome to It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday.


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.

Welcome to Monday and the first day of November. Hope you had a great weekend. We were a bit disappointed by the low number of trick-or-treaters, but trunk or treats seem to be the way of things these days. At least I have some good candy left over. LOL! 

The first two weeks of November will pass by in a blur. I have many work commitments as I start my transition to President of the Realtor Association of Pioneer Valley and have several showing appointments. In addition, Theo turns five today and the Lil' Princess will turn 18 on Friday, so we will have some birthday fun this week. I'm putting together everything I need to fly out to San Diego next Thursday. I'll have to get some cooking and food shopping done this weekend.

My virtual book tour for A Christmas Kindness starts today. I hope you'll follow along. You can find my tour schedule at the Pump Up Your Book website.

In my reading world, I reviewed these two books.

Next up are all of these.

After that, maybe something for sheer enjoyment like one of these.

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. 

Nothing in my physical mailbox, but I downloaded these Kindle freebies over the weekend. Try not to chuckle at how these two are such polar opposites. 

As we enter the season of thanksgiving, I hope you find many blessings to be thankful for.

I love holiday reading and can't wait to get started on my pile! I also love the pictures of your daughter, I feel a kinship to her with those trainers on instead of heels LOL

Wow, you are a busy lady! Safe travels and stay healthy!

Tee, it has taken her a long time to be comfortable in her own skin. She brought heels, but prefers the trainers. I love holiday reading as well.

Mary, I am busy, but I love it.

Thanks for visiting, ladies.

Your books look very good, and you have lots of great plans for the month ahead. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

Kathryn T said...

Now that sounds like a very busy week coming up. Hope all the birthdays go well and a little reading is sneaked in.

Elizabeth said...

Enjoy all of your books and your week.

Looks like some good books.

Cheryl said...

Thanks, Laurel. Yes, Kathryn, very busy, but all good things. Thanks, Elizabeth.

I appreciate all of you taking the time to visit.

Oh, you do have busy times ahead!
Happy Birthday to Theo and Lil' Princess.
I am thinking Intentional looks like a book I would like. I'll be interested in your thoughts.
Thanks for the heads up on the two freebies.
Have a good week.
