*Already, another Monday Reading post and definitely needed to wrap up my Bout of Books 12 Readathon list.A fantastic week of reading – covered several 2015 Challenges in my selections -and why?Because the weather is so cold!How cold you might be wondering…?On Thursday, we actually were colder than Mars!and tonight is a weather warning for an Arctic ridge bearing down on uswith -30 degree temps.  Add a windchill and, No, Not heading outdoors!I’ll be grabbing another cuppa and book!!*

My Challenge Wrap up ?

I did Lots of Challenge participation – great options and visual creativeness -I chose 2 mystery sleuths for a book Couples Challenge HERE ,posted my Historical Fiction Recommendations HERE ,posted a photo challenge Here that got the attention and response of the author,Vanessa Greene, from the Uk, along with an abbreviated Synopsis of her book HERE and a FuN Book Quote Here*

  1. I am so jealous of people who can read as quickly as you do. Since returning to work I feel like I don't read half as much as before. It looks like you've got a lot of wonderful books to keep you busy too.

    Thanks for visiting The Book Connection.

  2. That's insane, I can't even imagine that cold. I'm hiding out in the aircon it's sweltering here, if I go outside I will melt haha. I think I need to read Snow Angel just to feel cooler 🙂
    I'm off to check out The Seafront Tea Rooms, it just looks like my kind of book. Happy reading and stay warm!
