The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week, and showcase books and things we have received.
Don’t forget to look at my giveaways on the right sidebar.
Sunday, I spent some time day reading the newest In Death by JD Robb, finishing it at bedtime. I was kind of cold even tho the weather wasn’t really. I did do my blog visiting and such. We worked on hanging shelves and hooks in the garage.
Monday, I notified winners of some giveaways and took care of some other calls. Everything was going along well until I bought a Kindle book (not a freebie) and Amazon took that as suspicious activity and put my account on hold. Are you fucking kidding me? Do you not notice I have like 4000+ ebooks, 500+ audiobooks, KU, library books on Kindle, ARCs sent to Kindle! It’s not like I don’t READ. I am obviously tightly bound to Amazon, also with Subscribe & Save and Amazon Prime Video. So for 5 hours I could watch Netflix or use Hoopla (where I had checked out Spoiler Alert luckily). The credit cards are the same as have been on the account for YEARS, the devices are the same. Yes we have lots – I have a degree in computer science. They reinstated once and when I tried to buy the book again, back on hold. Do you NOT want me to buy things, seriously? Pulling my hair out would be less painful.
Tuesday, I went to get the tank for the grill refilled and pickup a curbside order at BJs. The weather is warm, 72F / 21C but cloudy and windy. I got things put away and back to my tasks disrupted yesterday. This week’s posts are ready but I have to get going on the ones for next week. I found some more ARCs I’d like but really I can’t take any more for March or June. I do have some space in April and May, thank goodness, because there will be things which I want to read. The Lenten rose is still just gorgeous even with nights that freeze.
Wednesday, I dawdled and read in the morning. Then my daughter had a doc appt. It rained a bit but cleared up by 4 so my daughter and I took Lulu for a walk. I stopped to take a picture and she was not happy. Why aren’t we walking?!?!?! There were lots of people out and other dogs to see and smell.
Thursday, I tried to get ahead of tasks. I stopped at the post office, picked up an RX for my daughter, and got a few items at Aldi. Then I did my usual blog tasks. I then helped my ex put up new downspouts, paid bills, made a batch of food for Lulu, made chocolate chip cookies and pumpkin muffins.
Friday, my ex and my daughter went to the Greensboro Science Center. I stayed home with Lulu because I like my time at home. I finally got the purchase of a gift ebook to go through without shutting down my account. It seems to be related to not having a promotional credit too, so I used that first. I am sure I have had a promo credit applied to a gift before, because I would rather have kept it separate but this time it messed things up. I started to watch the Marvel stuff on Netflix in earnest.
Saturday, other than walking Lulu and cooking meals. I mostly binged more Marvel which won’t be on Netflix in a couple days. Since I’m bingeing before they are gone, I may not get to all my Sunday post visiting until Tuesday.
Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Reading Reality. These are the exciting ARCs I received this week (If you click on the cover, it will take you to the Goodreads entry):
Thanks so much to Kensington Books, Brilliance Audio.

I grabbed this Chirp deal of 99¢. I had a promotional credit at Amazon and bought one of the books I don’t own yet.
Now the really scary one. This is all the Kindle and Audible freebies I grabbed this past week. You can see why I need to do Thrifty Thursday to be sure I read a few
at least one each month.
I really meant to cut back on freebies BUT they are free so I guess that won’t be happening.
I’m not including things like reviews posted or upcoming as they are always in the right sidebar. And, my challenge status is also there.
