Weekend Book Sharing and Blog Visits #37
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.

CHALLENGE and TBR UPDATE
An update on my 13 challenges:
I took inspiration from Deb at ReaderBuzz and added the challenge logos to my chart where there was one. Good idea Deb!
I added 16 books to my TBR wish list this week.
Nothing noteworthy new - life putters on.
A PHOTO BY TERRIE PURKEY - CELEBRATING SEEING THE WORLD
Thought I'd revisit Amsterdam (from last week). This section of buildings is known as the "dancing buildings" due to their tilts - but honestly, most buildings in Amsterdam tilt one way or the other. The other fascinating part about the architecture of Amsterdam, is that at the top of almost all the older buildings you can see a giant hook - that's because the stairways are so narrow, the only way to get furniture in or out of the upper floors is to winch it up and through windows, using those hooks. Unfortunately we didn't actually see them in use, but climbed many a stairwell and barely could get our luggage up, let alone anything bulky!
Hope you have a most excellent upcoming week and hopefully finding time to enjoy a good book. Looking forward to visiting as many as I can again this week!
