Good day my fellow booknerds :)
I thought I'd try to post a quick update and book haul since we're almost mid-July already!
I have been able to catch up on reading, especially reading my review books! And I am almost caught up with posting my reviews... lies! lol! I have about 25 posts before I'm caught up on those, but at least I've been able to post a handful this past week and have another handful pre-posted for the next week or two too! Feeling quite good right now :)
I am also participating in Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews!!!

What's distracting me from reading...
My sister and I took a trip to a (not so) local Barnes and Noble...
We were very disappointed; not only by the bad service that we received from the manager.
But also - the condition of the store was SO bad! It was SO hot and SO humid that almost all of the books had some sort of damage to them! Especially the paperbacks - as you can see, most of their covers were curling over, I've never seen book spines and pages so wrinkled! Made me so upset to see how poorly all of these books were - and mad that they were expecting people to pay full price for them. I wonder what will happen to these damaged books :(
Goofing off with my boys :)
Taking local fun afternoon trips :)
Thanks for stopping by today!!!
Happy reading :)
