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 midnite
Any 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 your
Library 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 today
A 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 Annual
Canadian Reading Challenge 
which begins on Canada's Birthday, July 1st of every year.


Definitely a Top Fave Reading Challenge !
It's all about challenging one's self to more Canadian reading discoveries.
Are you up to the Challenge?  Hope to find you there!

I hadn't read those Christian Fiction reads but they are on my list for someday! I was wondering about Grace's Pictures, I've been seeing back and forth reviews for that one. Glad you enjoyed it!
