Hello and welcome to Word of the Week!
If you’re new here, Word of the Week is a nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. You reflect back on the past week and sum it up in one word. Then share your word with us in a blog post, with as little or as much explanation as you like. It’s a fun and friendly linky, so please do be lovely and visit as many of the other blogs as you can and share with them your thoughts on their words and weeks. I do comment on every entry to the linky, and if you add the Word of the Week badge to your post to help spread the ‘word’, I also tweet them out.
My word of the week this week is:
This week’s word was nearly flowers as I have been enjoying seeing so many of my plants flowering this week, especially my peonies and roses, but in the end, it just had to be books.
This week has seen the children and I visiting the library, their idea and one that I fully supported! The self service machines there amazed me, they are clever little things, and of course we all came away with books to read. That same day, I received the latest title by one of my favourite authors, Julia Quinn, one that I’d pre-ordered so that was a very nice surprise.
I did then have a good sort through my bookshelves and took a big bag of books to the charity shop. I have some that I keep and others that I like to send back out there, so it was nice to clear out. Of course, this was largely in preparation for my upcoming birthday as I have plans to buy a fair few books then!
Do brochures count as books? For the purposes of this post they do! We’ve got a few Disney World brochures and booklets that we have all enjoyed looking through as we continue to make plans and get excited about our holiday next year.
I’ve been chatting to a publisher about taking part in a fun children’s book tour at the start of next month which will also involve a great competition that I am happy to be hosting.
I have also launched the Bring Back Paper Club this week, and I see from the survey that I popped in that post that a lot of people are interested in more book swaps and a book club. OK, I am on it!
A bookish week = a good week for me!
What about you? What one word sums up your week best?
