Sunday Post #55
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.
This week was a whirlwind of activity and we're now into August. We're having a pretty good summer so far but need more beach time- since we got back from vacation we haven't been to the water- hopefully that will change. And the Renaissance Festival is coming soon- a couple weeks now. That's a big deal for us as we'll be in garb (as they say) and ready for another visit to Hollygrove. In other news, I discovered a few more indie bookstores and am looking forward to scouting them out here soon. I'll have a new Bookstore Spotlight this week. Response has been great and I appreciate all the comments.
I had a COYER review last week and more to come. I've been having fun drafting my Comic of the Week feature and have some good ones lined up, I think. Feel free to let me know what you think.

NEW ARRIVALS/ UPCOMING REVIEWS:

Kaja at Of Dragons and Hearts tagged me in her Liebster post- thanks Kaja! I've done the Liebster before (twice actually) so probably shouldn't do it again, but I appreciate the tag! And go check out Kaja's blog- it's great! Her Liebster post is here- lots of fun!
Angela at Angela's Anxious Life has a rundown of the San Diego Comic Con- with pictures! Check it out! I learned some things I didn't know about the con- like how hard it is to get into some of those events.
Captivated Reader had a great bookstore post
Check out The Literary Lowdown over at Tales Between The Pages- some great links this week.
Nice review for The Here and Now over at My Shelf Confessions.
So how was your week?
