"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

It's Monday!! What Are You Reading???

This great meme is hosted by Sheila at "Book Journey".

 It's a great way to start the week and 
find out what other bloggers are reading.  
My To-Be-Read pile has grown to an 
unbelievable number thanks to this meme.
 
 
First I have to start out by saying  
BlogFest was a BLAST!! 
I made it to all 250+ blogs, it was sad that some people signed up and then didn't participate, but sometimes emergencies happen or things do not go as planned.  I have already received an email that I won a Barnes & Noble Gift Certificate.  I am so excited, which books from my wish list do I want to buy!! 

Cinnamon at A Journey of Books did an excellent job of hosting, the web page for checking off blogs you visited was wonderful.  I had almost 500 sentries for my 4 Escape With Some Good Books packages.  I found a lot of really good blogs that I probably wouldn't have found, so my blog following number increased dramatically.  I did not make people follow my blog to enter my giveaways but added almost 100 new followers.  I would say this event was a grand success and can't wait to do it again!!!

 The weather has improved and so have my aches and pains.  The new batch of cozies has arrived and I love this time of the month.  I usually clear some books off my To-Be-Read pile as I get caught up on the series before I read the new installment and I really like that It won't be long and I'll be all caught up and can start to work on the other genres screaming at me from that huge pile.

I would love it if you would all come back 
on Thursday for my new feature.
 
  No, I am not a new Tabloid Reporter, but it is a feature so that we can all get to know each other better. 
I hope you will all check it out and join the fun.

 

Check out the 2 giveaways in the left sidebar!
I will be announcing my 
September Book Giveaway tomorrow!
To celebrate Book Blogger Appreciation Week 
there will also be some other giveaways too!!
 

HAPPY READING EVERYONE!
