Good morning! Happy Sunday! It’s ME! Home and catching up on sleep and laundry, loving on my dogs, and just LOVING it!
I want to take a couple of minutes here and thank all the awesome blog sitters that popped in while I was gone and chatted up books here. I loved all the posts and had a great time reading them and the comments while in Australia and New Zealand. If you missed any of these great discussions, here are the links:

This is a group of great bloggers that I have had thee chance to get to know on-line, through books, and some even in person. It was fun to reminisce how we met and what books they love. If you have not had a chance to check out their blogs, they are linked on their posts and I hope you explore what they are writing about. 🙂
And now…. the books.
I slowed down on making requests before I left and I was pleased to see when I came home that I was not overloaded:
I Was Here by Gayle Forman (audio)
The Work by Wes Moore (audio)
The Conspiracy Of Us by Maggie Hall (audio)
Lost and Found by Brooke Davis (audio)
Some Other Town by Elizabeth Collison
New Uses For Old Boyfriends by Beth Kendrick
Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
A great mix of genres and books and audio!
Today, I think I will be reading Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire. I think our readalong posts go up yet this month (I need to check) and I have a ways to go. 🙂 * Just checked – I am late on posting! LOL The link to add your posts is now up.

Having read If I Stay, I am intrigued by I Was Here. Plan to check it out. Welcome home, and enjoy catching up.
I am excited about it!
I love how you had all these wonderful blogger friends covering your blog while you traveled. So nice!
It was fun to do and I knew it was in good hands 🙂
Welcome home! New Zealand is such a beautiful country!
It really is!
Welcome back! It was fun to visit with the bloggers.
Thanks, I loved having them here 😉
We missed you Sheila! The blogsitters did well though, even if I wasn’t able to comment on site because the links were broken. Just read Katie MacAlistar’s Importance of Being Alice. Read over half of Suzannah Dunn’s May Bride for #NationalReadathon, and Jan Karon’s Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good, all in 72 hours!
The links were broken? I will have to check that, no one said anything so I thought they were all fine. Hmmmm…..
I just went through and checked all the links on the 15 guests posts. They are all working *whew*. Do you recall what did not work for you?
I don’t recall any of the links being broken. They all worked perfectly for me.
I hope you have gotten it straightened out, Andrea.
I am so excited that I am now getting notifications of posts, comments, and replies, Sheila. YEAH!!!
I want to thank you again for having me on your AMAZING blog. It was fun and indeed a pleasure.
Nice stack of books. It doesn’t look too daunting. Great idea to cut back on requests before you left.
ENJOY your reading week, and again….WELCOME HOME….WE DEFINITELY MISSED YOU!!
Thanks Elizabeth. Its good to be home 🙂
Always good to be home. 🙂
Have a great week.
Hmmm…I don’t remember links being broken, so maybe it was a server issue. I was able to keep up on all the guest bloggers and thoroughly enjoyed it. So much fun getting to know everyone a bit better and happy to have been one of them 🙂
Though I finished Goblet back in December, life kept me from writing my post back then, so now I’m late! Getting that baby up today and hoping to catch up on all the Azkaban and Goblet posts, too 🙂
I hope to finish up Goblet today but more than likely it will be a couple days yet 🙂
Nice to have you back and thanks for the invitation to guest post on your blog while you were away. Hope you are feeling re-energised and ready to go, once you catch up on things that turned up while you were away.
Thanks so much! Tomorrow I need to get back to a routine but this weekend I have been laying low. 😀
Welcome back! I enjoyed your guest bloggers. Thanks everyone!
I Was Here looks so good – can’t wait to hear what you think!
Thank you 🙂
So, my Nook had a brain fart? Hmmmm ( shakes Nook)…” you in there?”. Kept coming up as “no page here”….
Oh no! That is too bad. 😦
I just read and loved If I Stay by Gale Forman. I will look forward to your review of I Was Here. Have a great week.
Thanks so much Pat!
