It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Thank you all for the birthday wishes yesterday, I am thankful for all of you.

We are joining Book Date’s It’ Monday! What Are YOU Reading? and Comedy Plus’ Awwww… Mondays blog hops.

Joanie enjoyed her week off and is ready to review Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog!

How am I supposed to eat frog when this book don’t tell me how to catch it or cook it? I don’t recommend it.

Sorry Joanie, I thought it was pretty good. It tells how to stop procrastinating and start making goals. It is common sense, but so few actually do it, myself included.

I always use my Barnes and Noble Mastercard at the vet so I ended up earning a Barnes and Noble gift card. I got myself a birthday gift with it- Rescued Volume 2. I loved the first one and so far , I am loving this one too. I have only had time to read the first few stories, but they were all heartwarming. One is by Allie of A Tonk’s Tail, she had a very sad start in life, but I am glad she ended up with a loving forever home.

  1. Cool! I’m so glad you were able to snag of copy of Rescued 2 with that gift card. I hope you enjoy the rest of the stories – my human was especially pleased with the ones in this volume.

  2. The book about frogs would have been good for the poetry day last time around…MOL!!!

    Nice to have the perks with your credit card, and that is a great book to get yourself as a purrsent! Think of it as a gift from all of your kitties:)

    1. Yes, they would have. I am sure the interest rate is too high, but I do love Barnes and Noble πŸ™‚

  3. Frogs! One of Angel Sammy’s besties was a froggy………… “Rescued” is a super good book – we won a copy of it and Mom enjoyed reading all the stories!

    Hugs, Teddy

    1. I love the poem Angel Sammy wrote about his froggy. You were lucky to win a copy of Rescued. XO

  4. Ms. C, my Tuesday lady, has Eat That Frog, and if i finish my work very fast and have a minute to spare, i read a page or two. It is a wonderful book.

    Rescued sounds good, too.

  5. Mom is still reading a book she started before her last get a way…it is by a new author, Christine Carbo, she found while browsing at Barnes and Noble
    Hugs madi your bfff

  6. Awww, I always enjoy coming over here to see who’s being featured. So cute.

    I’m ready The Force by Don Winslow. It’s a very good read, but it’s frightening.

    Have a purrfect Awww Monday. My best to your peeps. ☺

    1. Thank you. πŸ™‚ Mom doesn’t like to be frightened.My folks send their best πŸ™‚

  7. I’m a fan of procrastination. Sometimes, if I procrastinate long enough, whatever needs to be done just goes away. Come see my week here. Have a great week!

  8. Those both sound like very good books and you have the best idea on how to snag them! Our Mom is trying to get through her Time Traveler’s Wife. She’s not a quitter (hardly ever!) so we know she’ll work her way to the end.

  9. I have a stack of books to read, but didn’t touch any of them over the weekend…instead, I went for long drives with The Hubby or played with the cats. And I love to read, so maybe this is just a Summertime anomaly.

  10. Claire read a few stories of Rescued 1 and Rescued 2 only. She’s just finished “Cat Daddy” by Jackson Galaxy (with leaky eyes at some moments). Purrs

  11. I’ve picked up books I bought ten years ago by Jet Mykles. I love her yummy erotica about a band called Heaven Sent. Be well!

  12. Great reviews. The first book reminded me of when our dog, Polly, tried to eat a toad. Their secretions are very bitter and she never tried it again. Lucky toad, she spit him out! HUGS!

  13. Well, Mommy is on to another book now. She’s reading The Bone Witch. It will take her forever to read it because she reads a few pages and then falls asleep.
