Q:  If you own an eBook, would you also purchase a print copy as well?
A: There was once a time when I wouldn't even read an ebook. Now it's pretty much all I read, and I'm not a fan of clutter, so I'm gonna say no. I once wanted a library and had one in my home. Then we downsized, and I learned what it was like to have to transport all of those books. To this day, most of them are in Rubbermaid bins in my basement. As I finish a bin, albeit slowly since I read more ebooks, I then give away the book to another wonderful reader.

  6. I'm the say way with digital reading. I have hundreds of books and sold them all. I realized that I can always just go to a library and never have to move a box of books again. Thank and living tiny...

    Here's mine for this week.

  13. Looks pretty intense, but also really good. Looks like it is from multiple points of view?

  14. I've seen this one around. Hope you enjoy it. I transported all my books from the UK to Australia. It was the biggest portion of my shipping! :)

  15. I'm more of an ebook reader now too, Freda. All my old paperback are up in our loft! Lol! But the short answer to this week's BBH question is generally no. However, if I've read an ebook by a favourite author that I'd like to get signed one day then yes! 💜😊
    I hope you enjoy the rest of your week, stay safe and healthy.
    Here's my BBH Post

  16. I've heard such great things about One of Us Is Lying. I would like to read it someday.

    I still remember the boxes and boxes and boxes and boxes of books we had when we made our move 9 years ago. I donated over 1000 books on top of that. I still have a substantial number of books. I am not a huge fan of clutter, but I do like having full bookshelves and being surrounded by books. I am lucky that I have the space for them, but I do try to give away books I do not plan to re-visit. It's about time I go through my shelves again . . . Especially at times like these with libraries closed and money being tight, I am grateful I do have my books. I love my e-reader too though, and there are so many advantages to reading that way--which I do a lot of.

    Have a great week.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
