It’s 3rd Monday in June! What Are You Reading? 17.6.13


It’s the 3rd Monday in June !What Am I Reading?Well, I’m totally enjoying Library Thing’s Monday June 10 –  Monday 17 midniteAny other readers here participating?I found out about it via twitter, a teeny bit late, but not enough to dissuade me !So jumped in and, of course, enjoying another permission to read…This one’s different in that you can actually sign up for the hours you intend to read,[or have read during the event]allowing everyone to note when people are reading around the world.  Pretty cool.Everyone can log book reads HERE plus responses .  Of course reviews can be posted on yourLibrary Thing account or books added to your various libraries .Sign up info that will be helpful for the next one can be found HERE.
If I continue to ignore my responsibilities for one more day I’ll probably have another book to add!*So far, my week’s been amazing book wise.  Starting with the 1/2 price sale at the neighbourhood charity store!Not that I needed 1.more.book!  but at .25 and .50/each, I couldn’t leave them shelved. Oh No.  3 bags full are now shelved [temporarily] on a large chair in my living room!FuN to find books for family members by their fave authors too!Extra wee gifts to surprise them once in awhile…
*The reading part of my week looked like this ~*The BLossom Sisters 10.6.13  Unfortunately, content not worthy of its pretty cover.

Glamorous Illusions book 1 Grand Tour series Lisa T Bergren 10-12.13

Grave Consequences book 2 of the Grand Tour series                                                            
I liked book 1 best so far, but interest definitely piqued at ending of book 2 
Tons of Anticipation for book 3 due Oct 1st..
Grace’s Pictures by Cindy Thomson read 14-15.6.13
Grace is a 19 yr old Irish immigrant – 
Add to this emotive story the invention of Kodak’s Brownie, people’s reactions to photos as invasion of privacy, and some suspenseful scenes ensue..[plus a lovely side of romance!]






Finished Ripples Along the Shore eNovella #3 Quilted Hearts series by Mona Hodgson , and posted Goodreads review 16.6.13 todayA lovely series of sisterhood of women, post civil war, uniting in support and encouragement over  weekly quilting as they piece their lives back together and their hopes/dreams for the future..

plus,
I read 
Cupcakes, an ebook by Daniel Kelley, a LibraryThing win. 16.6.13 

           A short, well written familial eParable of 4 cousins being cared for by an Auntie 

who owns the bakery where they meet daily;progressing to adulthood, whilst keeping the bond she instilled. Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone?Definitely sweet, but not a cookbook!






*That’s it for this week at this point, but liable to change the minute another book catches my eye!
*
How about your reading week?Books?  Read-a-THons or ReadaTHing?
*Next Monday I probably won’t post unless I’m super organized and autopost!I’ll be busy packing to fly out to meet my lovely wee grandson[and of course spend time with my blessed son and daughter in law!]Not to worry about my reading though – I’ve 2 1/2 hours to enjoy my kindle enroute!*Because I’ll be away, I do want to invite ALL of you to join the 7th AnnualCanadian Reading Challenge which begins on Canada’s Birthday, July 1st of every year.
