Sunday Post: Book Haul

Happy Sunday everyone! It's supposed to be 58 degrees today. 58!!! We plan on spending some part of the day outside because well. How could you not.

Another sad week but I don't want to talk about it so I'm going to talk about fun things. My kids stayed at my MIL on Friday so I stayed home from work figuring it would be a mini-vacation. What ended up happening is it took so long to sort and clean my kids toys just in the family room that I hardly had time for reading. Then it was off to Chicago Bulls game. They lost but it was fun. The seats we get are row D so I could spit on the players if I wanted to we are so close. (I would not spit on anyone). Then Saturday my husband and I went to this awesome arcade where they have tons of old games. You just pay 15 dollars and it's free play all day long. I get further in the arcade games when I have unlimited continues.
This is what it looks like. Just rows of games and it smells like an arcade (kind of like how bookstores have a smell. That's my husband on the left. He would be mad that even this much of him is on my blog. ha. 

So besides that I'm in book bounce mode again. I really am having a hard time with ebooks. I just want to read physical books and sometimes I think it's because all I do is look at a computer all day at work. Or look at other peoples computers. I think that's why on the weekends I'm offline. Anyway my goal was to get all my currently readings off my shelf in goodreads and all I'm doing is adding. Ugh. I'm so crazy. Plus my UC is still flaring up and stealing my energy so I haven't been able to pull any late night reading excursions lately. I've also noticed that goodreads has some of the books I've read marked as want to read. Frustrating. So when I come across them I fix them. So that's enough of my ramblings....


Only today left for the Between Us Giveaway

  2. You had a very productive week. Happy reading for the coming week!

    Here is my post.

  3. Sorry to hear you had a sad week, but glad to hear you also had some fun. That arcade looks fun! I've only been to a few arcades where you had to pay per game and that get costly fast. I hope you enjoy your new books!

  4. The arcade looks fun and I am sorry this week wasn't a good one. I am moving more and more towards ebooks simply because unless it is hardcover the font in paperbacks gives me trouble and I need to put on reading glasses. With my eReader I can change font to suit me.

  5. Sorry you had a sad week :( ((hugs)) hope its better now!

    I would have a blast at that arcade, I love the old school games :)

    You got some really great reads, Enjoy them :)

    Have a great week

  9. My BF would totally love to go to that arcade ! Enjoy your great haul and have a nice week :)

  10. Ah, Thanks Jen, I soooo agree, I prefer physical books. OK, the whole reviewing 'business' is so much easier with ebooks, but I do love and miss getting that paperback…Hm, you may have a point there, I sit on a computer all day at work. I also miss not being able to look at the cove 'all the time'. I mean, I know I can scroll on the eReader back to the cover but it's not the same isn't' it.Have a great week and Happy Reading.
