Good morning Happy Sunday of the 4th of July Weekend! Yesterday was a gorgeous day here in Central Minnesota… light breeze, lots of warm sun and I spent most of the day inside working on the year-end book for book club this week, and house stuff thinking that today I would go out and mow and catch the outdoor stuff. Alas, since 3:00 am it has been thunder storming making it probably an indoor day. *sigh* I should have reversed the projects. 😉
In bookish news, here is what came in the house this week:
Alex the Ant Goes to the Beach by Eric Wayne Dickey
Invisible by James Patterson and Dave Ellis (audiobook)
The Farm by Tom Rob Smith (audiobook)
Shunning Sarah by Julie Kramer (picked up at the Brown Bag author event)
Defector by Susanne Winnacker
The Meta Rise by J.V. Kade
The End Of Absence by Michael Harris
Delivering Death by Julie Kramer (picked up at the Brown Bag author event)
CALIFORNIA by Eden Lepucki
Lots of goodies!
This week I have a crazy book week.
Monday – Friends Meeting in the morning, Brown Bag Author at noon
Tuesday – Bookies Book Club annual Queen event
Thursday – set up and start of Children’s Book Sale
Friday – 2nd day of Children’s Book Sale
Around that I work, will be helping out with the bees, and possibly going to the cabin this next weekend.
What do you have going on this week? Any bookish events?

I LOVE Alex the Ant Goes to the Beach! I love kids books and i love the beach. It looks adorable.
Its so cute – I will have to look through it this afternoon 🙂
Sounds like a FUN week! Alex the Ant looks adorable!
I think so too! 🙂
How cute is Alex the Ant! Happy weekend 🙂
Happy weekend to you too 🙂
Happy Sunday. It looks like a great collection of books. How do you choose? Have a great week.
It is hard to choose they all call to me for different reasons…. well, they almost all call to me. There is one in the pile that I did not request it just came. Can you guess which one is not me at all? 😛
It’s hard to say. My guess for which is not you… The Defector?
Nope – except that I did not realize that one was a second in the series. 😉
Books are SUCH an addiction! lol I KNOW I’ll never read them all, but STILL have a hard time resisting WANTing them! Thank you for making me aware of Alex the Ant Goes to the Beach ’cause kidlit is my thing and I hadn’t heard of it 😀
Oh good! I dont say yes to many childrens books… but some I can not resist 🙂
I am looking forward to an eclectic mix of books this week…hope you enjoy yours, too. They are all new to me.
Thanks Laurel 😀
That is an interesting mix of books! I was just reading about California in the NYT Book Review section this morning. Your week sounds lively! I am working hard to make mine tame!
I am excited about California – it sounds like my kind of book 😀
Busy, busy week as always for you.
Nice books for you.
My mailbox only had one book, but that is ok.
Have a terrific day and week.
You too Elizabeth 😀
Looks like you have a great selection of books 🙂
Thanks! I think so 🙂
I like your book filled week. If I were to get a job, I think I’d want to work in a bookstore other than a yarn store.
Thats my dream job… I want to own the bookstore though 🙂
The book call Alex the ant goes to the Beach sound great !!! I think a lot of kids will like this book..:)
I really think it looks wonderful 🙂
I’ve read a great review of California. I’m anxious to see what you think of it.
I can not wait to start it!
My club was supposed to be right before the 4th for our regular meeting but it was a holiday week and we all needed a little more time with The Goldfinch so we are meeting up at a member’s house for some snacks and coffee! I hope I can finish the book before then. I have been so distracted by the other books I am reading to really put a good dent in it.
There are so many wonderful books out there- it is hard to focus on one… I have three excellent ones going now (two on audio) its hard to choose 😀
Looks like a really busy week for you! Can’t wait to hear about your Bookclub’s Annual Queen event, as that always sounds like a lot of fun! Hope you have fun!
