and WWW Wednesdays
I am back after a few crazy weeks. How did I get into trouble?
- Well I accepted to schedule way too many reviews, but really, with so many great new books out there recently, how could I have refused?
- I also had a very busy October month on France Book Tours with many tours together. By the way, have you seen the exciting tours we have coming up in 2015? I just launched a tour with M. J. Rose yesterday! France Book Tours is proud to feature her for the 3rd time already!
- I also had to translate for work a 40,000 word book into French in a very short time
But all these nice things being other, it’s time now to share with you some of my recent exciting book life

BOOKS RECEIVED THIS PAST WEEK
CHECKED OUT AT THE LIBRARY
I love the cover of 100 Place in France! It sounds like such a cute idea too. Of course now I need to click over to read your review too. Enjoy your new books and happy reading!!
not only read the review, but also the book, lol!
The Innovators sounds very interesting… My husband would love it. I should get that for him as a gift!
yes! I’m actually going to recommend it to a few friends for their husbands
You’ve got some great books in your read, reading now, and to be read categories.
thanks, you too
I know what you mean – so many great books at this time of year, it’s hard to say no! Have a lovely week.
yes, that’s also a difficult balance for me to reach between the TBR and the latest books…
My goodness you’ve been busy!
thanks for stopping by
You’ve been very busy! I hope you enjoy The Shadow of the Wind. I read a print copy but I’ll bet the audio is good.
should be good. but The Innovators will take me a while
My sister loved The Shadow of the Wind. I need to try it one day.
and it’s only the first volume of a great series sounds like
Innovators sounds really good!! Glenn Beck just came out with a book about the heroes and villains who made America. You should check it out as it sounds similar 😉
I hope to see you around my blog,
thanks for the recommendation, I’m not sure which book it is though. Also, I may be wrong, but I suspect Glenn Beck’s writing style may not be as high quality as Isaacson
No new books received means catchup for you too!
you got it, and there’s mega catch up to do!!
I love that you recap everything in one place! I so want to read 100 Places in France. Have a great week! 2 Kids and Tired Books MM
I’m using the format I found on other blogs, very useful for me too. Yes, that book on France is just awesome! By the way, I left a comment at your place, but after I entered the security code, it did not tell me if the comment was received, was awaiting moderation or what
The Shadow of the Wind is on my wishlist! Have a great week!
has been on my TBR for such a long time!
I can’t even keep track of how many times I’ve gotten in trouble by accepting too many books to review! Oh well, now I just have to be careful about what I accept–my TBR pile can’t handle too many more!
yes, I need to be super careful
I’ve been known to overschedule myself with review books too. January looks especially busy right now. But I can’t resist if a book sounds good. Here is my week. Happy reading!
sounds like a common blogger disease, maybe we should call it overschedulosis, lol. I have also 6 reviews scheduled for Jan, but fortunately, I already have 4 of them on my shelf, so we’ll start in December…
I wholeheartedly agree with you that no matter how many books I have, I can’t pass any new ones up. 🙂
When I saw Shadow of The Wind, my heart went YEAH. I loved that book, and loved it so much I “had” to go to Barcelona to find all the places mentioned in the book. 🙂
I hope you like it as much as I did. ENJOY Shadow of the Wind and all your books. You definitely have a nice selection.
My Mailbox Monday
oh, wow! did you write a post in your Barcelona trip? and did you enjoy the other books in that series as well?
I just finished listening to The Innovators – loved it. I’m tempted to recommend it to my bookclub, but it’s a huge book.
but the geeks will love it! I have never had so much zeal cleaning the house and doing the dishes, just to get a chance to keep listening to it, lol
