The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
This week was an improvement when it came to reading, I managed to finish off some books and get some reviews cranked out. Overall progress was made. So on to the recap!
This Week’s Reviews:
I also did a lovely interview with Caron Rider which you can find here: Interview. I’ve posted my Goals and Updates page for the upcoming Bout of Books 4.0, which you can see here: Bout of Books 4.0. Make sure to stop back and check it out throughout the week as I update with my reading progress. I also updated the Kindle Deals page some, though I did have to scale back the amount that I put on there. It may take me a bit to get it straightened out, but if you have genre requests let me know and I’ll do some searching.
The Divine Comedy – Dante Aligheri
I’ve been wanting this version since Barnes and Noble first started doing the Leatherbound Classics. It’s soooo pretty and nice, and it’s offically now one of my “babies”. It now sits beside my leatherbound Shakespeare book. I can’t wait to get more of these.
Elissa Hoole (author of Kiss the Morning) was kind enough to give these out during the YAmazing Race and I managed to get some. So now I have two signed book plates and five temporary Kiss the Morning tattoos. Also she signs her name in such a pretty way.
What did you get this past week? Make sure to comment and leave your links so I can visit your blog as well! I hope you have a great week!
I am doing bout of books too..i love the leather bound collection from B&N. It sounds like you had a productive week and all those kindle downloads..yum! The Sunday Post is up, so be sure and link up;)
Your swag looks beautiful! And your Kindle downloads look exciting too, looking forward to your reviews 😉
Thanks for sharing so many books, you can find my Sunday Post @ bookaworld.wordpress.com, see you soon!
I like the covers of Paradox and Cheyenne. I like the last cover as well, but the title is unreadable. Good luck reading The Divine Comedy!
Check out my Mailbox post.
Oh it’s called Druid’s Bane by Phillip Henderson. I’ve actually already read The Divine Comedy but I do plan on re-reading it now that I have an awesome version.
I own that one, too, but as an ebook and in German. I would love to have leatherbound copies of most classics, preferably in their original language. :’D Would be so cool!
Anyway, happy reading!

I agree! I adore leatherbound books so I’m actually planning on replacing most of the classics I own with them slowly.
That leather-bound book is gorgeous – I usually get to Barnes & Noble regularly, so now I’ll be on the lookout for some of these classics to add to my stacks.
Definitely check them out. All the larger books like Divine Comedy and Shakespeare are all $20 and then the individual books like Dracula are around $12 I think. They are the only books that I’m willing to pay that price for really.
The Divine Comedy is a difficult but one epic read, both literally & figuratively. Gotta give it to Dante, his circles of hell brings me comfort on those bad days. LOL
Oh definitely. I have trouble getting through Purgatory and Paradise but that was in a standard version, now that I have the prose version I’m sure it’ll be easier. Plus the awesome illustrations.
