The #NYTimes Top 15 (25) #BestSellers in Fiction week ending 8-10-14 PLUS #Blog Updates!

Welcome! Another week of great books has gone by and I can't wait to see what books hit the Best Seller list! This post is always posted by NOON every Sunday and usually earlier!

This week I ended up taking a small 'book and blog vacation'. I needed it! The first thing that happened after I did the post on Wednesday was I hit some keys on my keyboard that made the keyboard not able to work! I couldn't type a thing, except for the 'screen' keyboard! Leave it to me! All I was trying to do after an Update was to turn the backlit keyboard off when I wasn't typing. I failed! I completely turned the keyboard OFF! Do you know how hard it is to use a keyboard on the screen? WOW! I tried to fix it myself for a day, and the 2nd day I called the good, 'ole trusty Geek Squad! They fixed it! So after 2 days of driving myself insane, it was fixed! It now turns off when I am not typing, just like I wanted it to! It turns on when I AM typing, just like I wanted it to! I LOVE it now!
I also had a few other things non-blog related I needed to get done, and decided this was the week I was going to get those things done! I did! I don't know about those of you who have blogs, but we read a LOT, and some things around the house just do not get done! I know you must go through this, too, so you know how things can get WAY behind! That is what I had to take care of, those things are now caught up, and I think I'm in good shape, at least I HOPE I am! (I can think of a few more things that need tending to, but those can wait! LOL!) Now I am anxiously looking forward to getting back to the books again!

Update - I am behind on getting the winners for the Hops and the one book, The House on Lavender Lane, and I WILL be doing that THIS UPCOMING WEEK! Watch your email in case you have won! I will email you first and wait for a reply within 48 hours! If I don't hear back from you then I move on to the next one! I'm excited to be giving away the prizes!

Lorena Bathey's birthday was this week, and she wrote House on Plunkett Street! It's a little ghost story, and her writing is AMAZING! She is giving it away FREE until Sunday at midnight! Here is the link so you can grab it!

House on Plunkett Street by Lorena Bathey

Lorena has also written a LOT of other books, too, such as Beatrice Munson (#99cents and I LOVED that book!) and you can see them on her Author page here: Lorena Plunkett Author Page I know she has a new book coming out soon about Marilyn Monroe, but we have to wait yet! Sounds pretty interesting!
