Good Morning everyone… I hope you all had a good week and a great start to the weekend.

Its hard to believe that this is already the end of September where is the time going? This month has flown by with back to school and hockey starting up. As much as I love summer vacation I am so happy to be back into a normal routine again.

This month I don’t think I went to crazy with the book buying.

Hello everyone. Hope you are all enjoying this last long weekend of summer. Where did the summer go? Its far to short.

This week I didn’t get any books for review but I did get this to watch and review and I am really excited to sit down and watch it this weekend:

Good Morning everyone. Where is the time going? Its hard to believe its already the end of August and that means summer is over. Michael is back in school next week. Hard to believe he is going into grade 8.

I am complete shock this month! I only purchased 4 books. This is a record for me!

I think what curbed my book buying this month was that we went to Toronto for a few days earlier in the month, we are currently renovating the basement, dh was on a month’s vacation, no Friday morning dates with Jennifer, and I am completely addicted to buying planner stuff so when we were in Toronto I was looking in all the Michael’s craft stores instead of bookstores. Perhaps that will be a nee feature on my blog…. lol

When I look at the total books I have bought and read and I think I am 1/4 of the way through that. So I am slowly making progress on that but the last month or so its been hard to squeeze in some reading or to stay motivated to read. I think once things get back to normal it will be easy to get back on track.

  1. Chase (Bookshots) by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge
  2. Let’s Play Make-Believe (Bookshots) by James Patterson & James O. Born
  3. Viking Warrior Rising by Asa Maria Bradley
  4. Sunset in Central Park by Sarah Morgan

Total books bought in 2016: 102

Total coloring books bought in 2016: 9 +1 for Michael

Total books read from this purchase: 2

Total books read from 2016 haul:  35

Good Morning everyone. Oh my gosh its been so long since I have actually gotten anything in the mail and I actually did a little happy dance when DH came in with the package.

I have to send out a huge thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada for sending these books my way. I completely forgot that I requested them with the Canada Post strike (we will know this week what is happening), summer vacation, various activities that Michael is taking part in and planner decorating. So this clearly was a nice surprise to get just before heading out on vacation.

I am currently in Toronto and will be heading home today. Fingers crossed I was good with book buying although I don’t know..I clearly can’t be trusted in a bookstore.

Anyways the books that I did get in the mail are:



I hope you all had a good book week and got some awesome books.

Good Morning everyone. Sorry that I have been basically MIA for the past little while but I have been busy the past few weeks with swimming lessons, afternoon parks program, volunteering at the library (Michael needs to do 20 hours of volunteer work as part of the academic plus program at high school) and vacation. There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day and usually after supper I end up crashing on the couch watching Corrie and the other summer games shows etc.

This month I have another big haul. I know I said that this was suppose to be a no spend month but as you can see I got carried away. I need an intervention!

Sorry there is no photos this time around as I am trying to get a few things printed before going to bed. I am meeting up with Tina from BookShipper for breakfast tomorrow as its our monthly get together.
