It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday - Jan 24

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.

Well, this week passed by in a blur. How was yours? With meetings, media interviews, showings, and a new listing, my brain is a bit tired. I'm also working on an editing project. Not a lot of reading going on right now. I am sticking with my Bible plan, but not a lot else. 

I will review the first chapter of this one on Tuesday.

My review of this book will appear here on Wednesday.

I need to read these.

I need to tackle these two books in February.

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.

This book that I am reviewing in February arrived last week.

Self-care is a buzzword often mentioned when people seek to optimize their health. Suggested self-care practices tend to include activities such as exercising, getting a massage, or eating a healthy diet. While all of these actions have their place, none of them are sufficient enough to provide the soul-care we need to maximize our self-care. Self-care without soul-care equates to temporary solutions that leave us searching for the next new thing. However, when Christ becomes the center of our holistic health journey, we not only find fulfillment in Him but also a dependency on and trust in Him to truly live our best lives-emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.

Please remind me that I promised I would not request too many virtual book tour titles this year. LOL!

Hope you share what you're reading this week.

Your life does sound quite hectic. I hope it settles so that you can get back to reading. The books you list look interesting. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

It is always so nice to sit down and relax with a book of any kind after a hectic day.

Here is my daily post:

I am intentionally being very careful not to request too many books this year as well. It can become quite daunting. I hope you enjoy all of these. Have a great week!

Thanks for stopping by today. I didn't get to visit until now because it ended up being another hectic day.

Kathy, I am hoping this coming weekend will be easier.

Tee, I agree. I've been a bit too tired at the end of the day, but at least I am reading Scripture.

Cindy, it can be daunting for sure.

Thanks for the comments, everyone.

You are experiencing busy times. I find reading my Bible Plan in the morning sets the day off well.
Connecting with Christ sounds like a good and worthwhile read.
Have a good week and Happy Reading!

Busy time.


I have Karen White's book too, but haven't gotten to it.

Have a wonderful week.
