There's A Book

This fabulous weekly recap is hosted by Shelia of One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. Each week we recap what we’ve read and look at what’s coming up this week. If you’re interested head over to Shelia’s site and get involved! It’s a blast and I may even stop by to see what you’re up to!

Here’s what we’ve been up to this week:

This week has been pretty relaxed, with the exception of reading of course! On Friday The Baker (my hubby) was sworn in as an attorney here in the state of California, which was actually a pretty neat experience. We went to the local courthouse and met with the Supreme Court Judge who talked to us a bit and then he was sworn in. It was a fantastic ending and beginning. We are absolutely excited to see what happens next!

New Event!!!

Also, I just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve started a new Meme here at There’s A Book! It’s called A Bit of Me(Me) and it runs every Saturday. After participating in Armchair BEA and getting to know a little bit more about some of the fabulous bloggers out there I wanted to take the opportunity to do a little more “meeting and greeting”. I also wanted something on the weekends that was a little more relaxing. This week’s participants were fabulous and I can’t wait for more to jump on board. So, take a look and try it out! I can’t wait to get to know everyone a little better!

    Congratulations to your husband! You had a great week reading and a big event with your husband. Have a wonderful week filled with books this week. My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/06/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-7-june.html

  2. Zia says:

    Both My Name is Memory and 13 to Life are in my TBR piles. I hope to get to both shortly. Happy reading this week and exciting news about your husband. I bet that was quite the experience.

  3. I hope 13 To Life was wonderful. I met the author in New York and she did not have any of her books with her. I even went to a book store there and they did not have it either. Her shipment did not come in I guess.

    Hope it is good! Have a great week!

    Congrats to your husband. That is great news.

    I saw your meme mentioned on someone else’s blog. What a great way to get to know people better. Making myself a note… “Saturday – A Bit of Me(me)”

    Have you read the book Three Wishes yet? Jennifer from Rundpinne is reading it next. I read it last week and gave it a 4.5 out of 5.

  10. I’ve heard great things about Beautiful Malice – I’ll check back for your review. Sounds like you’ve got some terrific reading lined up. Enjoy!

    I can’t wait to read Shannon Delaney’s book. What a great beginning for a new author! Sounds like you’re involved in some fun new projects too. Looking forward to checking back to see what’s new. Thanks for the post on my blog! :)

  20. Staci says:

    Congrats to the hubby!!! Forget you has a wonderful cover that totally makes me want to read it!!!

  21. Julie says:

    Congrats to The Baker! :-) And I love your new meme. I may just have to participate, if not this week, then perhaps next!

  22. Heidi V. says:

    You have another awesome week coming up, I’ll have to stop by for your reviews…Have a great week!

  23. I actually stopped reading the House of Night Series. One book will last maybe three days and that bothers me for some reason. That is not the only reason. You have some really good books coming up. I read a guest post by the author of 13 to life. She discusses how names are important parts of her novel and how she got her author name, which I thought was interesting!

    Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog

  24. Tempted is on my TBR pile, I can’t wait to read your review of it :)

  25. MarthaE says:

    Great idea about learning a bit more about each other with your meme. I took a peak. Funny I was just thinking about my favorite movies!
    Beautiful Malice sounds intriguing.

    Congratulations to your DH. What type of law does he plan on practicing. My DH teases me that he doesn’t understand how I can’t get it right after all the years of practicing! :o)

    Have a good week!

  26. Bebe Boy James and I are also reading “A Place for Delta” – he’s excited to get to write his own kid’s review! LOL! Now I’m off to read your reviews!

    My Monday: http://jewelknits.blogspot.com/2010/06/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-june-7.html

  27. Amanda says:

    Hey there!

    I just thought I would stop by and say thank you for stopping by my Outback blog, Desert Book Chick! I haven’t got around to replying to everyone on the blog yet – I thought I’d do a little blog tour of my own tonight.

  28. Aleksandra says:

    You has a great week! Happy reading!
