It's Monday 4/23 What Am I Reading?

This post is just plain FuN to add to FHC !

Before I left for my week away to attend the conference,
I contacted the hotel to ok parcel delivery for guests.
With their direction, I was able to have books sent to me there~

You can imagine the fun of arriving to find 4 packages waiting
and additional ones arriving each day of the stay!
Sooooo ~
my mailbox looked quite like this!

of the 13 {!} books received - Yes! it's totally crazy ~
here's one cozy mystery I have just completed reading...

Death In DahlonegaDeath In Dahlonega by Deborah Malone
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An easy read of 129 pgs this evening! discussion questions also included if you're looking for a short book club read.

I completed Deborah Malone's cozy mystery with a cozy comforter of my own
along with a warm cuppa!
the story was short , keeping a steady pace of action, ad libs and deduction led by our protagonist , Trixie, who is sent to Dahlonega on a writing assignment for her 'Georgia By The Way' editor.

Taking advantage of the Gold Rush Days weekend celebration in combo with her assignment, Trixie brings longtime friend DeeDee along... though it turns out to be anything but the anticipated weekend of antiquing and shopping they'd planned!

DeeDee is discovered holding a bloodied pickaxe over the dead body of a prominent citizen of Dahlonega in the town's Gold Museum, kicking their weekend off in the wrong direction. Trixie forges ahead in her own direction intending to vindicate her friend, unintentionally increasing their dangerous escapades...

Encouraging our participation in Monday April 23 2012  
 Monday Night's 

 Promoting your luv of books by giving one {or More!} away !

World Book Day has posted a recommended action list as follows ~

  • Download books published over 100 years ago on Kindle, they’re free!

  • Share your passion for an author and offer their book to people around you! 

  • Take this opportunity to discover something new 
    from what you're used to reading.

  • Leave a book on a park bench or a metro seat with a note saying 
    Happy Book and Copyright Day!

  • Find out how to send your old books to schools and libraries
    in countries facing a post-disaster situation. 

  • Educate yourself on books pirating:
    respect for copyright encourages the dissemination of knowledge
    and rewards their creators and publishers.

  • Never throw away your books,
    get involved in local community or online book swapping
    and donation campaigns and initiatives.

  • Plan local reading events in schools and libraries and
    encourage famous guest readers to get involved.

I'd love to hear what you have planned
and how your Book Giving adventure turns out !

It's Monday What Are You Reading ?
books i've been reading ~

Tethered by her impulsive promise to marry Lord John Lemon - the path of least resistance - Alexandria Featherstone sets off toward Iceland in search of her parents with a leaden heart. A glimpse of her guardian, the Duke of St. Easton - the path less traveled by - on Dublin’s shore still haunts her.

Will he come after her? Will he drag her back to London, quelling her mission to rescue her treasure-seeking parents, or might he decide to throw caution to the wind and choose Foy Pour Devoir: “Faith for Duty,” the St. Easton motto. The Featherstone motto Valens et Volens: “Willing and Able,” beats in her heart and thrums through her veins. She will find her parents and find their love, no matter the cost.

The powerful yet wing-clipped Duke of St. Easton has never known the challenge that has become his life since hearing his ward’s name. Alexandria Featherstone will be the life or the death of him. Only time and God’s plan will reveal just how much this man can endure for the prize of love.

You have the best taste in quotes ;)

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
