#ReadingQueue: September 2015

 Reading Queue is a monthly meme hosted by Book Tasty and Books: A True Story.
Welcome to the Reading Queue.  
What is the reading queue all about?
Reading Queue is a monthly meme where you share what books you plan to read for the month. You can hop to other blogs and see what others are reading and maybe find someone reading the same thing as you! Or you can ask for people to vote on what you should read next if you can’t decide.

This month will be interesting because I have a full time job as most of you know but I will be taking three classes as well.  One of them is Entertainment Law and I have a feeling there will be a lot of reading to do.  I will try and keep this list very realistic.  So here is what I have lined up for the month of September.

Waiting on Wednesday: Dumplin'

This weeks "can't wait to read" selection is...

Birthdays, Audiobooks and Giveaways!

It's June and that means a few things here at My Little Pocketbooks.
One, most coupons are going to expire soon.  (hehheee)
Two, it's Audiobook Book and...Three, It's my Birthday Month!

* happy dance*

To start off the birthday celebrations, I want to give one lucky reader a free audiobook.
The wonderful people at Audible.com have graciously donated a download of THE HOLLOW GROUND by Natalie S. Harnett, (narrated by Luci Christian) for one lucky winner.

June 2015 Reading Queue

Reading Queue is a meme hosted by Book Tasty and Books: A True Story.
Welcome to the Reading Queue.
Hey there everyone! Last month I was not planning on reading more than two books but low and behold I surprised myself and read more than two. Check out my reading queue for this month and see how I did last month. Nothing over the top now because I am taking classes online and there is tons to do. This month I am going to aim a bit higher and add more than two books to my queue for June.
What is the reading queue all about?
Reading Queue is a monthly meme where you share what books you plan to read for the month. You can hop to other blogs and see what others are reading and maybe find someone reading the same thing as you! Or you can ask for people to vote on what you should read next if you can’t decide.
So here is what I have lined up for the month of June. (Click the covers to go to the books Amazon page.)
