"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.


I can't believe it!  I exceeded my read goal last night for J. Kaye's 100+ Book Challenge.  My goal was 140 and Kate Colllins' Dirty Rotten Tendrils put me over the top.  I can't wait to see what I end up with for a year total!!  I have never read anywhere close to this many books in a year.
Off to a slow start this morning/afternoon.  
Need to kick my butt in gear to visit some wonderful blogs and 
get some reading done today!!!

Sew Deadly
Death Threads
Pinned for Murder
by Elizabeth Lynn Casey 
This entire series has been demanding my attention, the first and second for quite awhile.  I know these are perfect books for me because my ultimate favorite hobby before my accident was sewing.  I had started the first book shortly after it was released in 2009 and stupidly left at a doctor's office, where I was reading it waiting for an appointment and didn't want to put it down.  When we got home and I realized it was missing I called the doctor's office right away and they couldn't find it anywhere, so someone must have picked it up assuming it was some sort of Book Crossing thing.  I hope they enjoyed it and passed it on and purchased the 2nd book in the series and are anxiously awaiting the 3rd book's release.  I have now replaced it and can't wait to "Escape" into this series.

A Holiday Yarn: A Seaside Knitters Mystery 
A Holiday Yarn (ARC)
by Sally Goldenbaum
 This is the 4th book in another wonderful series, 
and I can't wait to read it!!

Be sure to check out the Giveaways in the left sidebar. 
They are all ending this week!
Please come back for my new feature on Thursday!
  No, I am not a new Tabloid Reporter, 
but it is a feature so that we can all get to know each other better.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK READING!!!!
