Monday: Mailbox/What Am I reading?/Musings

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. June Host is: Dolce Belleza

I received one book, thanks to the publicist:

The Book of Someday by Dianne Dixon tells the story of Livvi Gray, who since childhood has been haunted by a recurring nightmare—a terrifying image of a stranger, an eerily beautiful women in a silver dress and pearl-button shoes.  Shortly before Livvi’s 30th birthday, her nightmare will become reality. On an early morning walk, when she is making one of the most important decisions she will ever make about love and loyalty and family, Livvi will come face-to-face with the stranger from her dream.  This chilling encounter will not only alter Livvi’s future, it will change much of what she thinks she knows about her past. 

I won an e-book from Freda's Voice:

Almost Criminal by E.R. Brown
Charming, wealthy Randle Kennedy has a secret: he's British Columbia’s most prolific producer of boutique marijuana. He’s developed strains of B.C. Bud to please the most sophisticated palates and produce any desired effect, from a light contemplative buzz to the most mind-warping stone. His medical varieties offer relief for conditions ranging from cancer to Alzheimer's disease. Come legalization, he'll be the first on the market with marijuana's answer to single-malt Scotch. Until that day, he runs a tight operation with terrorist-cell security. Tate MacLane is brilliant, miserable, and broke. Since graduating from high school at age 14, he's failed at university, failed to support his family, failed at everything except making a superb cafe latte. Randle wants a fresh face to front his transactions. Tate desperately needs a mentor and yearns for respect. And money ... Then there are the bikers, the muscle with the cross-border connections that Randle needs to bring his product to the American market. Soon Tate finds out that it's harder to get out of the business than to get in.

I downloaded the following free e-books from Amazon:

The House by Anjuelle Floyd
Chasing Vegas by Ted Vezner
Treasure Island by R L Stevenson
Carribean Moon by Rick Murcer


Hosted by Sheila @ One Person's Journey Through a World of BooksWe discuss the books that we've read and what we're planning to read for the week.

I posted review of

I am in the midst of reading 

Many books

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

I just wanna get back to reading with a vengeance. That's about it!!

I had CSR (blurred Vision) in my left eye. I was under treatment from October 2012. My final check up was done in May 2013. The doctor was very happy with my progress. Now I am CSR free. My medication was stopped and he prescribed new prescription glasses for near vision, that is, reading glasses. My far vision is PERFECT. I am SO relieved about my eye! Yes, I was worried.

Boutique marijuana? Now I've heard everything! We've come a long way from my high school days when everything was smoked under cover. So much so, that I didn't even know what was going on in my own little innocent world. :)

So glad your eyes are doing good. One of my fears is losing vision and not being able to see the printed words, or even to be able to see t.v. As is it, the t.v. watching is blurry and lately I've had to wear glasses to read. then I lose the glasses...

but thank goodness for glasses, best invention.

have a great week and enjoy your reads.

i really love it when there are free ebooks on amazon. when i see something that's $0.00 i automatically download without even reading the blurb first ... my motto in amazon is, download now read later haha.
