Suddenly Sunday

Suddenly Sunday is hosted by A Muse in the Fog

Happy Mother's Day to all! I am hoping everyone else is having a wonderful day. Hubby works for a cable company and was called out to a job but he did get me Starbucks before he rolled out and my little urchin provided a foot massage and promised to fetch all the books I need from my book room today :)

I got a few reviews done this week:

and I have one done that I have not reviewed yet which I plan on doing later today:

  • The Tudor Rose by Margaret Campbell Barnes

And one I am almost done with that I will be reviewing sometime this week:

  • The King's Fool by Margaret Campbell Barnes

Yesterday I hit the annual Norton Shores Friends of the Library Sale and came home with 36 books for me plus 4 for my son for $21! I love great deals (and great books). See what I got tomorrow in my mailbox monday post and expect a few more rather large mailboxes as there is another FOL on 22nd of May and yet another big one on the 8th of June. I love FOL sale season!
