Welcome to Sunday. Let's get to another Sunday/Monday post, where I link up to:
Because I still had to get to the lake. I actually met up with my paddling friend there. We haven't both been out on the lake in over a month, so it was nice paddling with her.
I did have a couple of hours at home, and I spent it reading, napping, and talking to my parents.
Then I headed out to see Neil Simon's play Fools. The theater department at a local church was putting it on. Some of the jokes were a little obvious, but overall, I really enjoyed it. The laughs were great.
So that was today. What about the rest of the week? I got my allergy shots, just a couple days later than originally planned since they cancelled my appointment at the last minute. Still don't know why, but they were able to get me in on Thursday. Thursday, I also got the oil changed in my car. And I got my garbage disposal fixed on Wednesday. Thrilling week.
Shall we get to it?

I seem to have no self-control when it comes to books these days. At least, most of the books are ebooks again this week. And most of them were super cheap if not free.
It all started with a couple of freebies. Via an author email, I found out about Ryan Rivers. If I signed up for his newsletter, I could get a freebie of a novella in his mystery series - Arbor Day Can be Deadly. That sounded like fun, so I did it. Then I discovered that he had a short story that was free right now, so I snagged it, too. "Halloween Hoedowns Can be Deadly" sounded perfect for this time of year. I'm hoping to get it in before Halloween, but we will see how the next couple of days go.
Then Gigi Pandian released a Christmas short story in her Secret Staircase series this week. At 99 cents, I couldn't pass up "The Christmas Caper".
Then, when I was watching The Bookish Hour this week, one of the hosts was raving about Murder in First Position by Lori Robbins. I was looking it up to add it to my Amazon wish list and discovered it was on sale for 99 cents in Kindle. Yep, I snagged a copy.
And then I had two pre-orders release this week. One was a physical book, and it is the last item I bought during Barnes and Nobel's pre-order sale back in January. Yes, I order this book that long ago, but it's Donna Andrews. Of course, I'm going to get Dashing Through the Snowbirds. My other pre-order was another ebook - A Scape Goat for Murder by Jaqueline Vick. It's book six in that series, and I'm only on book three. But I do have the other books in the series and it was a good price, so I snagged it. Now, to make the time to catch up on the series.
What I'm Currently Reading:
When I was home Saturday afternoon, I finished up Broken Heart Attack by James J. Cudney. This book has been sitting on my Kindle app for far too long. I enjoyed it, but now I need to read the next to find out what happens next. And yes, I am behind my usual schedule since I am planning to review the book on Thursday but I just finished it on Saturday. I like to be a week a head, so I need to get some more reading time in.
Sunday and Monday, I'll be diving into The Plot Thickets, the fifth Garden Squad Mystery from Julia Henry. I like this series, so I'm looking forward to diving back in and seeing what the characters are up to next.
Hope you have a great week.
