Weekend Book Sharing and Blog Visits #32



It's the weekend, so it must be time to enjoy a few of my favorite book memes. This is a great opportunity for readers and bloggers to share what they've been up to - both newly received books, what you've read or want to read and any bookish or personal news/updates.








I'll be linking to: Stacking the Shelves is hosted every Saturday by Marlene @ Reading Reality The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. The Sunday Salon hosted by Deb @ ReaderBuzz, Mailbox Monday hosted by Words and Peace is also a weekly gathering place to share new books received. Join me in visiting the wide array of book blogs in the world.

PERSONAL UPDATE

A very quiet week on the home front; finished cleaning up the Christmas doodads, went back to work after a week off, watched the Washington Huskies win their bowl game. Go Dawgs!



A PHOTO BY ADAM PURKEY - CELEBRATING WASHINGTON

This photo was taken by my son, Adam Purkey. He's a committed hiker and goes to places I'll never see because I'm NOT climbing those mountains. He has some stunning nature photos - from mountains to the ocean to wildlife. Please take a minute and visit his gallery website and sink into the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. You can also follow him on Instagram to keep up with his most current wanderings.



Hope you have a most excellent upcoming week and hopefully find time to enjoy a good book. Looking forward to visiting as many as I can again this week!



Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's my goal to provide real reviews of the books I read without totally rehashing every plot. I'll never spoil a story by giving away a plot twist! Hopefully you'll find one or two of interest and will discover a new book or author to add to YOUR TBR list.  Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let me know what you think.

                            TIPS

For your convenience, I use #hashtags in the reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate the site and find books you'll enjoy. I've also recently added tags that will show up at the end of each review that serve the same purpose.

The review ratings are based on a 5 star  (1/2 stars sometimes) system with a 3 being an average read for me. I hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - my opinion!  Let me know if you agree or disagree - I'd love to hear from you.

If you like what you see and want to keep up with me, subscribe below.  Happy Reading!
