#StackingtheShelves #59 plus blog updates and week's end for 11-19-16!!

Thanks to our Sponsor, Tynga's Reviews!

How Stacking the Shelves works! 

Hello everyone! It's that time of week again, that time to do an awesome "SHOW AND TELL" of the books I have been given, from authors, from publishers, I bought, borrowed, or received somehow, the library, a yard sale, or some way this past week! I LOVE showing books off like this! This is one of MY favorite posts to write!!
I also use THIS POST EACH WEEK to do somewhat of a wrap-up AND to post my NEW REVIEWS, NEW GIVEAWAYS, and whatever else I should bring to your attention!
After you are done reading HERE, click on the Sponsor's name up above and see THEIR post for Stacking the Shelves, too! They have a link-up with OVER 100-200 other blogs that also participate!
I'm also finding OTHER PLACES TO LINK UP TO AS WELL! I'm finding these places from other blogs, and they are GREAT ideas! The following NEW one is Talk of the Town where we can add ALL THINGS BOOKISH! Check it out! 

I will also be linking this post AND my reviews to Saturday Situation as well from now on, too! That is a place to link ALL THINGS BOOKISH! I'm anxious to start posting there!! Check it out, too!

Welcome Everyone!!
I have to confess I have been focusing on my swimming these last few weeks SO much that I have not been reading AS FAST as I usually do, and I AM behind on my reviews. SO SORRY!!! I WILL catch up! PROMISE!!!!
I just finished reading The Story People by Heather M Kaufman

I WILL be writing a review on that book, too! I still have The Water's Edge to write, too! I AM getting behind, but I would like to report that I have lost close to 30lbs!!! In 2 MONTHS of swimming it has worked!!! At least this week I was able to take class 4 days this week! A FIRST for me!!!! I stay after and swim the lap pool for a while, at least I do what I can!! I LOVEEEEE IT!!!! I have to force myself OUT of the water!!! 
For any of you with health problems, swimming is a GREAT form of exercise!! You should totally try it!
I NEEDED to lose weight!!! All that reading had me sitting WAYYYY too much!! I gained weight, so this was coming! I HAD to do this! So I did!!! I am SO happy because that scale moved after 2 weeks of it doing nothing! Then 2 weeks later I lost another 6lbs!!! Wooooooo!!! I now have a goal of another 45lbs! I have lost 30lbs, so another 45 to go! I CAN DO IT!!!! I feel GREAT!!!!!! WONDERFUL! I really look forward to going as OFTEN as I AM ABLE!!


May you and your families enjoy a WONDERFUL turkey day, safe travels, and fun time spent together!!! Most importantly, may you SHOP, SHOP, SHOP on Black Friday!!!
