AVR News Update
The weather this week has continued to be gorgeous, sunny & warm. I've had the windows open for weeks now, but the upcoming forecast is showing some rain and cooler weather, more like October should be instead of like June. Not that I'm complaining about the nice weather. I wish Spring could have been like this instead of the rain we had every single day.

I've made an account at BookLikes and while I haven't had a chance to really nose around much, I do like what I've seen so far. I have yet to get a social icon up for that one and I'll be adding a way to follow by RSS as soon as I have a chance to figure it out.

I'd like to thank Literary Chanteuse for nominating me for the Liebster Award. Thanks Mags! I'll be answering the questions as soon as I can. *wide smile*

This is AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.

  2. Some very interesting choices for books that you got this week. I see some romance. We all need some romance in our reading every once in a while. Come check out my haul as well this week. I also have a giveaway going on right now.

    1. I think I'm romance heavy this week. Romance, in it's many forms, is my bread-n-butter genre. :) Thanks for visiting!

    1. I have close to 5000 books on GR,s o I don't see myself leaving anytime soon. However, I don't like how they arbitrarily removed things without giving people a chance to fix things themselves. Not cool. So, looking around and BookLikes seems pretty cool so far. :)

  13. Loving the Holiday themed romances - I need to check them out, since there's no such thing as too many books! I'll look for you on BL too - I"m still figuring it out myself, but I think I'm going to like it. They seem very responsive to requests for features, so fingers crossed!

  14. It's been really hot here too, it was nice and breezy outside for like 3 days but it's back up to the 80s. I'm hoping it stays that way though, I don't like the Fall. I hope you enjoy your new books!
