Hello and welcome to Showcase Sunday. The aim of Showcase Sunday is to highlight our newest books or book related swag and to see what everyone else received for review, borrowed from libraries, bought in bookshops and downloaded onto eReaders each week. For more information about how this feature works and how to join in, click here.

    And likely the better part of next year too. I bring home this amount of books at least monthly so yeah… will I ever catch up? Not likely. 🙂 Thanks for visiting!

  2. Wow, Bonnie! You got a lot of books there! You're going to be reading into next year. I have Sloppy Firsts too and I just need to read it. I've heard really good things about it. Enjoy your reads! 🙂
