The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

This has been a crazy week for me and I have been itching to sit down and get  some good reading time in.  Monday was a book club night, so I got to get out and talk books with friends.  I have another book club meeting coming up this Tuesday and I’m really looking forward to it.  We read some really great books this month and I’m eager to talk about them with everyone.

So, here’s my recap of the week.  

Friday:  Dragged my sorry ass home from a long week at work.

Saturday:  I think a little too much shopping went on.  Normally it is just a grocery day, but we decided to splurge a little and even got our little fur babies some treats.  We’ve been trying to find Peanut (our little male chihuahua) a tag small enough for him but would fit our numbers, etc. on it.  We finally found him a little black bone-shaped tag, and even had both sides engraved so we could put his name on it.  Our cat Tator has never (at least since we’ve had him) had catnip.  We have heard that the kitties LOVE catnip so we went and picked some up for him.  Everyone got a little something.

Doesn’t he look excited?

I went to Amazon and pre-ordered the hardcover of Styxx by Sherrilyn Kenyon.  I wanted a hardcover, even though I am getting the Kindle because Sherrilyn will be at a convention I’m going to in the fall and I want to be sure I have it on hand to be signed.  She’s selling a signed collectible edition online, and I did that with Time Untime, but if I can get a live signature, it will mean a lot more.  To me anyway.

Just in case you didn’t know, The Darkest Craving by Gena Showalter FINALLY had it’s kindle pre-order go up!  I’ve been watching Amazon forever waiting for this to be available.  And now, it is, so be sure to head over and get yours!

Amazon has Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet (Charley Davidson Series)on sale for $3.99 right now. I haven’t read the first three books yet, but they are on my TBR and, well, I couldn’t pass up the deal. Now if they would just put the others on sale I could pick them all up too!

We must not forget the audios!  I had to pick some of those up too!  Lately I’ve been picking books I can get the whispersync from Amazon.  The next reads on my TBR though, were not available that way so I had to go straight one way or the other.  I had a really hard time choosing and ended up actually downloading two.  I got Frostburned by Patricia Briggs in audio, even though I have the ebook, because I really wanted to get to it, and I desperately needed to start Deadly Sting by Jennifer Estep, which I’m reading on my Kindle.  Just on a side note, Deadly Sting is now on for $3.99 on Amazon.  I am slightly pissed.  This is where pre-ordering comes around and bites me in the ass.  This book has only been out for a little less than two weeks!  People, you all better jump on that deal!  I also see that you can get the audio for $3.49 if you buy the Kindle.  So, if you buy now, you can get both for the price I paid just for the e-book.  Damn.  You all are out there laughing at me, aren’t you?

Reading this post, it has occurred to me that I need to take a good, long look at my book budget.  Or lack thereof.  I see some of you all working on taking control of this obscenely expensive habit, and think I may need to do the same.  There won’t be any “may” about it if my spending gets discovered.  Shhhhhh….

Well guys, that was my week.  I hope you all had good ones!  Drop me a note and let me know if you found any other great deals out there I may have missed.
