Sunday Post #53



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

 I'll be posting some pics as soon as I get them organized. And... I got some nice pics for my Bookstore Spotlight feature.  

I need to get caught up on COYER as well. I had a review last week so will be linking that up. I did have some prescheduled posts go up but didn't get around much, so I'll be catching up this week. Thanks everyone who stopped by and commented. If you missed my first Bookstore Spotlight you can check it out here

AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE:

The High Summer Readathon is here- check out the starting line here. I had a lot of fun with this last year... 

Bronze Age Babies had some good posts this week- here they talk about the summer annuals of yesteryear. And Bronze Age Reprints, another fine retro blog, is counting down to The Guardians of the Galaxy movie with a look at the original Guardians- and some of Marvel's other cosmic heroes as well. Should be fun... 

Daily cosplay this week a fabulous Ms. Marvel 

So how was your week?

  1. Glad you had a great time in Traverse City. Love it there. Was it a bit cold at the beginning of the week like it was here in West Michigan? Looking forward to your bookstore spotlight.

    1. I think The Wild dark Flowers will be good, I've been waiting for that one for a while. Have you read Rutherford Park, the first one? It's pretty good...

  6. Three indie bookstores sounds really dangerous! Glad you had a nice vacation even if the weather wasn't always cooperative. Looking forward to seeing what you think of Wild Dark Flowers. I've had Rutherford Park on my wishlist since your review (or rereview!)

  9. I'm envying you - three indie bookshops in a week?! When I'm on vacation it's bookstores and also yarn stores - I love visiting yarn stores and coming home with souvenir yarn. :-) Looking forward to your Bookstore Spotlights!

  14. Welcome back! I wish we had more bookstores around here. We do have a fairly large on in Greensboro. As a matter of fact, we were just there today looking for a couple Summer Reading books from the kids' lists. Didn't score any of course since everyone appears to need them (library backlogged, too). lol So, I ordered off Amazon and with Prime they'll be here Weds. At least I tried to buy local. *sigh*

    1. Hey you tried! I do too, alhough I have to admit I get tempted by Amazon's discount and Prime is a good deal.

  15. Three great new reads, Greg! Glad you enjoyed your vacation. I look forward to seeing the pictures and the bookstore spotlights. I always try to visit indie bookstores and the local library when I go away. I've gotten some great tote bags from them.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a great week--sure hope you get all caught up.

  16. Heading off to vacation this week! I am going to the San Diego Comic Con. Should be fun. Not sure if I will get to any book stores or not. We'll see! I am hoping to get some autographs while wondering the floors.

    1. Hey have a great one, and enjoy the con! Those of us not there will have to enjoy vicariously through you attendees. :) Are you going to post from the show?

    1. Hi Elizabeth! Michigan does have a lot of beautiful areas, especially northern Michigan. My bookstore post should be up tomorrow.

  19. I do love Michigan. :) I haven't been in 9 years so I'm ready to go back. It looks like you have a wonderful bunch of books to read!

  20. Ooh, indie bookstores! Love it, and your feature about them. This one looks cozy, inviting and worth a trip, if I was in Michigan that is. I like their no-charge policy to help out tourists who leave the area and enjoy them. Also the little bowls of water outside for the dogs with the framed book covers to look at, lol!

    1. Thank Rita, it really is a nice store to hang out in. I liked the little bowls too... actually several of the businesses on Front St. do that, I got a kick out of it the first time I saw it!
