It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday - Aug 8

  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 back to Monday. College move in countdown has really begun. Most of the shopping is done. Then it is packing everything up and marking it all. UNCW has a team of people who help with move-in day, so we have to make sure all of the Lil' Princess' boxes are clearly marked. 

Other than that, life has been work, work, and work. In addition to real estate, I will be editing an exciting project, and am finalizing the proofreading of another project for a fellow author that I hope will be published soon. 

As far as reading goes, I kept going with this one. I enjoy Charyn's writing style. My review of Big Red will appear here on September 23. 

Look for my first chapter review of Birthright by Jeanette Baker here on August 12.

Look for my review of this writing craft book here on August 25.

I am also going through this one when I have time, which isn't often.

This Christmas one is next.

After that, it is probably 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.

My physical mailbox remained empty because I have such a hard time buying books lately when I have so many unread books here. I did, however, pick up one Kindle freebie, and I earned a $5 reward toward a digital book by Karen White, so I grabbed one that I don't own on paperback.

That's it from me. Today, I will be in and out with appointments, so I will check in and visit blogs as I am able. Hope you share your new books.

College move-in. Scary and exciting for everyone. Best to luck to her and you.

Mary (Bookfan) said...

Having a move-in team is so helpful. Be prepared when the year is over and she needs to move out - there was no team for that, lol (at least in our experience. Have a great week!

Harvee said...

Good luck with that editing job! Sounds like a fun and challenging project.

Lyn said...

Saw that No Mercy book for free on B&N. All those others look good as well.

Laurel-Rain Snow said...

I am curious about Big Red. Enjoy your week and your projects.

Greg said...

Yes the college move in time is fast approaching! We're in the midst as well. :)

Hope you have a great week!

Cheryl said...

Thanks, Mark. Yes, scary and exciting for sure.

I appreciate the tip, Mary. I am sure it won't be as well packed when we bring her home, either, since she will be doing it without me.

Thanks, Harvee. I love editing.

Lyn, I really need to slow down on my free books.

Laurel, have you ever read anything by Charyn? I still think his best is The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson, but Big Red is good.

Hope the college move in goes well, Greg.

Thanks for visiting today, everyone.

I really enjoyed The Last Night in London. I hope you do as well.

Our Grandson is moving to college this weekend. Exciting and scary at the same time.
I hope all goes well with your Lil Princess.
Yes - work, work, work... I have enjoyed 10 days away but will have to double up on work when I get back.
Lots of books planned out. Happy Reading!
And thanks for the tip on No Mercy which I got on free Kindle too.
