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 these last few weeks:

Well, yep, I’ve been away these last couple of weeks along with the kiddos. The reviews have been sparse and I’ve been primarily working on reading & playing with the kiddos. During the last couple of weeks some health issues have made me re-prioritize my life and what I want to spend my days doing. It’s been good and actually rekindled my love of books & blogging. I’ve also decided to format these posts a bit and so feel free to let me know what you think! So, here’s to much more reading, reviewing, playing and more!

Oh! And BIG news…I was interviewed for Woman’s World Magazine and my “feature” appears in this week’s edition! Go out an grab a copy!

    Wow, looks like you’ve been busy with your books! Spending time with the kiddos is just right for the summer. Looks like yours are younger than mine (who are now both teens). I didn’t know there were still more If You Give a ** a ** books – good to know!

    You mention some health issues. I have a chronic illness that certainly caused me to reprioritize my life, too. If you are interested, I also write a blog about living with chronic illness at

    Nice to “meet” you!
