In The Fullness of Time
by Vincent Nicolosi
I didn't get as much reading done last week as I would have liked.  I took most of Thursday cleaning and organizing my workspace here.  Check out my Feel Good Friday! post below to see what I mean.  

Feel Good Friday! is a great meme Hosted by: Erika,  the girl next door grows up  and it is for all kinds of blogs, not just books, I find it a wonderful way to close out the week and get ready for the weekend.  You may want to try it sometime.

August Book Giveaway ends tomorrow night at MIDNIGHT! If you haven't entered follow the link in the left sidebar and enter today.

I took a look at your blog and I'm not convinced we like totally different kinds of books LOL... I have eclectic tastes when it comes to reading. I like a little bit of everything. Great Blog!

I always like visiting your blog as you tend to have a variety of book interests, like me. I never know what I will find on here and that makes it interesting. I am participating in Blog Fest and Blogmania, so I agree, September will be busy!!!!

Have a great reading week!

I know I've said this before, but I still love that header picture you use for this meme. :)

That cover of Deadly Daggers is so cool! I'm sure I would pick that book if I ever saw it anywhere. Have a great week!
