"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."
--Author Christopher Benson

ON DECK

The rest of the week will depend on what the FedEx or mail carrier brings.  My shipment from Berkley for this month has been deemed "lost in the mail" and they reshipped last Thursday.  There are a lot of good books coming out August 3, 2010 and I have only read Chapter & Hearse by Lorna Barrett because she was so sweet and sent me an advance copy.  If you read my review you already know I LOVED IT!!! and it is one you definitely need to read.  I will read and review as many as the other ones as soon as they arrive, so you can get your shopping lists ready for them as they are released.  Plus I have a new Advanced Copy that I can't wait to start!

My son played in a basketball tournament this weekend and that cut into my reading time a bit, but it was sure worth it.  The boys played so well, won 2 and lost 2.  The 2 loses were real heart breakers and heart stoppers, the first loss was by only one point and the other loss was by only 6 points and was lost in the last seconds by a quick steal and a misdirected inbounds toss.  They play in their last tournament next weekend and if they play as well as they did this past weekend, they should be pretty successful.

Looking ahead as you can tell by the daily countdown Dollycas's Thoughts is participating in the GOT BOOKS?? BLOG EVENT .   Over 100 book blogs are participating and I am very excited about my giveaway.  It is based on one of my favorite cozy mystery series, by one of my favorite cozy mystery authors.  I hope you will come back to visit this Friday and Saturday and enter and travel around to the other blogs participating.  It should be a lot of fun!!   I also have 2 other giveaways going so be sure to check the left sidebar and enter.

I wish all of you a wonderful week and HAPPY READING!!!!

I am adding you to my RSS feed NOW so I don't miss the REd HOok Road giveaway!! Even though i've only read Bad Mother -- I think she is my new favorite author. She was on NPR last week, and I couldn't get out of the car until it was over.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Thank you both for visiting. I love this MEME because I find such good blogs that I otherwise might have missed.
