Something Old Something New #2

Something Old Something New is just a monthly post I am adding to my blog to give you a bit of news here there about me, books and the random things going on.

Something Old

Today I thought I would feature an old book I have sitting on my book shelf collecting dust.  I haven't read it yet but I plan on it (one day)  There are so many to pick from but I selected one from the top of the pile.
Why is it still collecting dust?  Well I go through phases with my reading and when I was on my Biblical Fiction phase I bought this one but realized it was book #2.  (There are only 3 books in the series)  I can't read a series out of order!  OH! NOOO!!  So I need to get book one first.  Then I will get to this one.  But first I need to finish a few incomplete series I have setting here looking at me.  Here is the five year old book!  Click the cover to go to the Amazon page.
Abigail (The Wives of King David Book #2) by Jill Eileen Smith
Abigail's hopes and dreams for the future are wrapped up in her handsome, dark-eyed betrothed, Nabal. But when the long-awaited wedding day arrives, her drunken groom behaves shamefully. Nevertheless, Abigail tries to honor and respect her husband despite his abuse of her.
Meanwhile, Abigail's family has joined David's wandering tribe as he and his people keep traveling to avoid the dangerous Saul. When Nabal suddenly dies, Abigail is free to move on with her life, and thanks to her brother, her new life includes a new husband--David. The dangers of tribal life on the run are serious, but there are other dangers in young Abigail's mind. How can David lead his people effectively when he goes against God? And how can Abigail share David's love with the other wives he insists on marrying?
Jill Eileen Smith, bestselling author of "Michal," draws on Scripture, historical research, and her imagination as she fills in the blanks to unveil the story of Abigail and David in rich detail and drama. The result is a riveting page-turner that will keep readers looking forward to the next book in this trilogy.

Something New

Now on to new news...
This is not something new just something new I am thinking about.  I have been working on the Book Blogger Organizing Challenge and Cross Posting has come up.  Right now I cross post with Audible for my audiobooks I get with them and Goodreads for everything I read.  I am thinking about cross posting to Amazon.  Should I?  How much cross posting should I do?  I am not using Pinterest for my blog and that should be an avenue for me to cross post just by pinning the book covers of the books I read.  Or what about StumbleUpon? I can add an Like from them to all my review post.  But is that too much.  What is the right number for cross posting?  Should I use Stumbleupon on Pinterest and Audible and Amazon?
Twitter sends out a tweet automatically for all my blog post (reviews too).
I have been thinking about it and just wanted to get your thoughts on the matter.  Do you cross post and how many times for the same book?
