Waiting on Wednesday: What I Know For Sure

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that I am eagerly anticipating.
I'm back again with another WoW post.  I don't do this post often but when I do you know I am really excited about a book.  

This week's "can't wait to read" selection is...

Sunday Delight: Bout of Books Week

Happy Sunday Everyone!
How are you? Did you have a productive weekend?  Did you participate in the Bout of Books read-a-thon?  I did..kinda.  I hosted my first Bout of Books Mini-Challenge and it was amazing.  I have never had so many people participate in a non-hop giveaway. I loved the excitement and the fun everyone had with it.  I am going to post more about the Book Spine Poetry Challenge later and a wrap up of the Bout of Books event.

Here and Now

Time: 7:55 am
Drinking: Water
Eating:  I made egg fritatas for the first time and they came out perfect.  I made 6 with a biscuit bottom.  I love those the best. Those are the ones in the back that look like muffins.  My honey says he liked them but I can't tell if he was just being sweet.  I'll just take the compliment and move on.  LOL!
Egg fritatas with zucchini, onion, soy chorizo and cheese
Listening To: Gospel Radio on Pandora.
Watching: Nothing!

Bout of Books 11: Update and Winner

Bout of Books
Hi All!
Just wanted to post a few Bout of Books updates to let you know how I am doing so far. 
This Bout of Books I haven't participated as much as I did in the past.  I don't have time to try out the great list of mini-challenges. And I am doing mostly audiobooks this time so I can sit and listen while at work, driving to work, driving home from work and while at home doing housework.  Dang!  The word "work" is a bit to much.  What the ...?  What happened to just reading time?
But that is how my Bout of Books is going to have to go this time. 
So on to the updates.

Clear Your Shelf Giveaway Hop


Thank God I get email reminders about all the giveaway hops I sign up for.  When I was cleaning up and organizing my bookshelf last month I signed up for this one and then quickly forgot about it.  OOPS!  

Bout of Books Challenge: Book Spine Poetry

Bout of Books 
Welcome Fellow Bout of Bookers!
Today is Day 2 and I hope you are all getting a few pages turned in your read-a-thon book.
I am reading Me Before You by Jojo Moyes right now and hopefully I will finish it before the last day of the read-a-thon.  I know you didn't come here to chat about the read-a-thon but to have some fun in the hopes of winning a great prize.  So here it is...

Bout of Books 11.0: Goals

Bout of Books 
Hosted by Bout of Books

Yep! I am going to try and get a book (or two) off of my DNF list.  I have a ever growing DNF list this year.  Last year there were just two books and only one from the year before.  Right now as it stands I have 5 books started and not completed. 
So my Bout of Books goal is to get one of the five off the Did Not Finish List.
