  1. I loved A Man Called Ove (book and movie) but haven’t listened to the audio version. I did listen to the audio of Born a Crime and thought it was fantastic. Hope you are enjoying it even if it is slow going 🙂

    • Melissa

      I can’t wait to see the movie after I finish the book…And I am really enjoying Trevor Noah’s voice.

    • Melissa

      You and me both…I really only have time on lunch breaks at work but even then I sometimes have to run errands!

  2. I can’t wait to get my hands on Devil in Ohio. Living near the state hopefully will make it more interesting for me. Great haul and I’m sure you’ll finish lots books the rest of the month.

    • Melissa

      That was tough…but I did finish the mystery Sunday afternoon and am into my next print read now.

  3. Ooh Hitchhiker’s Guide is free on audio? I still have to finish that book… and somehow I missed your Cover Characteristics post, just went over to check it out. Those posts are always fun… 🙂

    Have a nice week!

      I did read…just with alternating between all three didn’t finish any of them! Have a great week too!

    • Melissa

      Yeah…I guess with three books going an two of them being audios…I made progress on them all just didn’t finish any of them!

    • Melissa

      Well, I read almost every day but with three books going at once just didn’t complete any! And yes…TV definitely got in the way a few days!

  4. A Man Called over became one of my favorite reads of 2017. I hope you enjoyed it if you got to read it yet. I also love the Booktown mystery series which my daughter introduced me to. So many books, so little time. Have a great weekend! #GetSocial17

    • I have his second book on my bookshelf courtesy of my daughter. I am looking forward to it, but currently am in the middle of “Gorge, My Journey Up Kilimanjaro at 300 Pounds” by Kara Richardson Whitely. Being a big girl myself I wanted to see how she did it. “Become a Better You, 7 Keys to Improving Your Life Everyday” by Joel Osteen. And a new book as part of a book tour, “Betrayal at Iga, A Hiro Hattori Novel” by Susan Spann. As always, so many books and so little time.

      • Melissa

        So true…I’ll never conquer my TBR in one lifetime!!! Hope you enjoy all three! Become a Better You, 7 Keys to Improving Your Life Everyday sounds like one I should read!
