It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mailbox Monday - Mar 4

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 March! We are inching ever closer to spring, thankfully. Sunday's temperature was near 60.

This was a crazy, thrilling week. We celebrated the grand opening of our new office. Here are a few photos.

On Friday, some of us from Rick's Place attended the opening ceremonies for The Western Massachusetts Charity Dance-A-Thon. 

That didn't leave a lot of reading time for this week, but I still managed to read from my devotionals. I also listened to this one in the car. 

This week, I hope to continue with these. 

Next are these. 

Upcoming virtual book tours:
  • Six Moons, Seven Gods by Robert A. Walker - Mar 4 (spotlight)
  • Universally Adored and Other One Dollar Stories by Elizabeth Bruce - Mar 12 (interview)
  • It Will Have Been So Beautiful by Amanda Shaw - Apr 25 (review) 
  • My Career Journal by CareerTuners - May 1 (review) 
  • Be Resilient in Your Career by Dr. Helen Ofosu - May 16 (review)
At Christmas Year Round, we talked about Three Things You Can Do in March to Help Prepare for Christmas.

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.

Though spring isn't here yet, I simply can't look at that winter mailbox any longer. My mailbox was empty this week, but since I've been buying books like crazy, that's probably a good thing.

Hope you all had a nice week and read tons of good books. I look forward to visiting you.

Nice to have new office premises and great photos. Well at least a little reading via audio in car is good I think.
