The #NYTimes Top 20 #Bestsellers for the week ending July 4th! Plus BLOG UPDATES!
HAPPY 4th of JULY!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA!!!
Welcome!!! To the weekly post of the BEST of the BEST #NYTimes #Bestsellers for this past week! This post is ALWAYS posted every week (minus ONE in the three years I've been doing this, and only due to illness!) I LOVE writing this post! You can count on this to be up EVERY Sunday by NOON and most of the time earlier! Like today!
Well, I had an AWESOME week of reading, and I hope you did, too! Let's see what books made the #Bestseller list AND find out about ALL of the Blog Updates going on HERE, and there are A LOT OF GREAT UPDATES to tell you about today! I'm SO excited!!!
I also have the #WINNERS from the last 3 #book #giveaways back when I was ill and was not able to choose them with Random.org! I have NOT forgotten!!! I was just too sick to be able to go back and get the winners and contact them. I'm sorry about that, but I was really sick. Thankfully, I am feeling GREAT now! I LOVE life, but only because there are books! If books did not exist, I don't know what I would do??? How about you? I bet the SAME thing!
IT'S TIME TO MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THE PERSEIDS METEOR SHOWERS! To learn MORE - go HERE! These start July 17th and go to August 24th, with a peak time of August 9th to the 13th, and the BEST DAY is August 11th! That is given your weather cooperates! This has been a problem for myself and my kids (no matter how old or young they are!) as it has been cloudy and foggy. BUMMER! This year I AM going to see them!! They talk about these in much more detail at the link I gave you up above! It is WORTH IT to see these! One year I sat outside my house on the outskirts of the city, and I STILL had a GREAT SHOW! Take a drive out to the country and you won't be sorry! You'll LOVE it!
FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT: I want to bring to your attention the LEFT SIDE COLUMN! There are "2" Giveaway Hops going on NOW! (Well, one IS going on right now, and the other one 'officially' starts on July 5th, or tonight at midnight, which is Sunday already!) You CAN enter BOTH OF MY HOPS, EVEN IF THE ONE IS OPEN EARLY! I've done this intentionally for you night owls out there! I'm positive you'll be up because you'll be celebrating the 4th tonight with FIREWORKS!!!), so if you are here today, on the 4th, then go ahead and ENTER BOTH of them now! Just know that not ALL blogs may not YET have their posts up. You might want to keep track of the blogs that are not yet open so you can go back and enter them tomorrow, or a JUST CLICK ON THE PHOTOS OF THE HOPS and that will take you to the link that the #Hop is going on at!
