B Is For Books


Brown and Black bears are all over the northern region of Ontario that I live in, but since I live in the city, the only bear I see is on the Big Bear sign from the convenience store.

That's not the B I have in place to discuss, no, with BEA (Book Expo America) going on, all I can think about is books. It doesn't help as I sit in my home office writing this I am surrounded by them. I mean, they consume me!! See for yourself!






This is the bookshelf filled with my faves. My personal collection.











                       




These books I still need to read.

A.K.A
My TBR pile








And this is my closet shelf.
It has all my signed copies and audiobooks.
FYI: I consider my signed copies to be so valuable that they get put away from eyes who may ask to borrow them. It would kill me to lend one out and not get it back. Sad, but true.

So now you know what a book junkie I am, and how bad my addiction is, what would you prescribe??

  1. I would prescribe 'keep on reading!' who doesn't like to read? although I think your TBR list is way too long but it's a good thing. at least you won't run of books to read.

    coming from alphabe-thursday. hope you have a great day.

  3. You have as many books as our public library. I'm impressed.

    One of my pet peeves is loaning a book to someone and not getting it back, especially a signed, hard cover book. I don't lend books anymore for that reason.

  7. My late father had a vast library. It's his fault that I became addicted to Poe.

  8. Ha! I tend to use the three libraries that are nearby, or my shelves would look like yours! As it is, I have a lot that I own!! I don't think there is a cure, however...

  11. I love books too.

    I think I would prescribe a nice cozy sofa, with a soft blanket on a cool rainy day... SO you could read another book!

    You do know that only brilliant people love books that much, right?

    Lovely post for the letter B.

    Thanks for linking.

    A+

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
