Me on This Week's Book Week (58)

This Week's Book Week is rather similar to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews only with far more rambling and a less witty title. ;)

Happy early Canada Day. :) Not sure how around I'll be this weekend with the holiday coming up.

Summer is coming... next week, apparently. All the forecasts I've seen predict a heatwave to show up middle of next week. It'll be nice, because the rain is getting annoying, but it'll also be really really hot. I imagine we'll be hanging out in our cool basement during that time.

Google Reader ends on Monday, but you're welcome to keep following Me on Books in whichever new way you've discovered. I'll be over on Bloglovin, but there's other places like Feedly and the new (and possibly still testing, I think they're rushing to have everything working by Monday) Digg Reader. It's up to you. There's also the 'Subscribe by E-mail' option in the left-hand sidebar. :)

I posted pics of all the books I've got free to give away on Twitter and a bunch of people said they were interested. I so love how some people were local bloggers, saves me so much on shipping. The pics are still up on my Twitter page if anyone's interested, about 20 books have been claimed already. Keep in mind that depending on how many books you're interested in and where you live, you might have to chip in for shipping. No media mail in Canada so sending parcels is a bit pricey.

All other books that aren't sent off to new homes will be either given to charity, given to the nearby high school in the fall when school starts up, or dropped randomly by me around the Lower Mainland with big 'FREE BOOK' stickers on them. :)

Reviews going up this week will feature Way to Go by Tom Ryan (Tuesday) and Half Lives by Sara Grant (Friday). :)
Ink by Amanda Sun (My finished copy arrived, the outside cover is all textured and fancy.)
Saga Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples (I really like this series, as brutal as it is. It's about family, and love, and living, and fighting for what you believe in, and surviving. I'm just concerned that it'll go on for years and the ending will be a long time in coming. Volume 2 comes out soon, the cover looks rather badass with Marko's face all covered in blood. I might be searching for the monthly comics when chapter 13 comes out in August.)


  1. I love Saga! So good. And I'm really looking forward to Ink

  2. I have Ink but haven't got round to reading it yet. I hope that you enjoy it!

  3. Happy Canada Day weekend! I actually had no idea Amanda Sun was Canadian until I was looking at your list of Canadian authors. Now I'll have to add Ink to my list. Happy reading! :-)
