The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. 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 is your news post, so personalize it! Include as much as you want or as little. Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies. Link up once a week or once a month, you decide. Book haul can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books..share them!



What a week. So much wind and rain and mud. I almost miss the snow. Almost. Lol.. Finally went for my Mammogram, and the radiologist wasn’t there so no result till this coming week. She did tell me she didn’t see anything alarming, so I feel a little bit better. We just have to be careful because of the precancerous cells they found a couple of years ago. I’ve been thinking of switching to an iPad instead of my current Kindle. I think I’ve figured out which one to get. I really like the iPad Pro and what it can do. Do any of you use and iPad for blogging and reading? Got some family time coming up over the next two weeks. My husbands off on staycation. We’ll be in and out going, and some shopping too. No snow in the forecast either. Yay!!

Busy week on the blog, if I missed visiting anyone I’ll be making my rounds around in the next few days. ☺ Somehow I managed to stay off of Amazon this week, aren’t you proud of me?!?! But I did get some new review books, so there’s that. 😀 Thats it for me! Happy Sunday!!!

    All your new books look awesome. I hope you enjoy them all. I feel like I really need a stay-cation. I am actually taking one in March, but I will be using that time to learn Drupal, the platform for my new online bookstore. So maybe it won’t be as relaxing as I need it to be.
    We are getting a big snow storm tonight. Lucky me, I have to be at work at 6am. You’ll find me digging my car out of the drive in the 4 o’clock hour tomorrow. Ugh! I hope your weather clears up soon.
    Have a great week Jenea!

    That’s great that you’ll be able to spend some time with family and relax. I have an Ipad and a Kindle and don’t use either(lol) I prefer to stick with my laptop for work/fun, and occasionally use my phone for quick peeks at things. I still prefer the paper books these days. Hope your week is fabulous! Hugs…RO

  3. Lynn

    I hope your results will be good! I can’t imagine having to go through that!

    I personally prefer my Kobo e-reader over the i-pad because the battery lasts longer and my family constantly needs the i-pad too, so for me it’s more relaxing to just read on my e-reader (also the i-pad is heavier 🙂

    I haven’t heard about any of the books you got but I do love the cover of The Lost Queen of Crocker County! I hope you’ll enjoy all the books you got! Have a wonderful day and happy reading!

  4. Sam@WLABB

    Fingers crossed your results are good! I personally did not like reading on my iPad, and I don’t really like reading on my kindle fire either (but sometimes I have to because of format) because of the backlighting and glare. I like my kindle because it’s does not cause the eye fatigue of the other devices. I never liked doing much typing on my iPad because I prefer a physical keyboard. We mostly used it for travel (checking feeds, email), watching movies. But that’s just me. Lots of people love touch screens.

  5. Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

    I hope your test results show you’re in the clear. (And thanks for the reminder; I need to schedule mine.)

    Nice review books this week; have fun reading them! I prefer my Kindle Paperwhite if I’m reading ebooks, because it’s much easier on my eyes. I only use my Kindle Fire for books with illustrations—or I read those on my laptop. And occasionally I read on my iPhone, if I’m on the go and forgot to bring the Paperwhite. I don’t have an iPad, but I imagine it’s like the Fire in terms of glare and backlighting. I don’t blog on anything but my computer, and preferably while it’s docked, so I can use my ergonomic keyboard and large monitor. They’re a lot easier than trying to use a virtual keyboard!

  6. Laurel-Rain Snow

    I don’t have an iPad…but then, I can’t imagine wanting one. I wouldn’t use it for blogging, as some who have aren’t able to do the links, etc., that make a blog post workable. Or maybe it takes a special kind of training.

    I hope your results are good…the waiting can be hard.

    I love the look of your books! Nancy Thayer is a favorite…and I’ve enjoyed Sandra Block.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

    No iPad here, I just use my laptop for blogging. I have a tablet, but it’s really annoying to use, except for reading PDF books. Sometimes review copies aren’t formatted right and it’s hard to read PDFs on my Kindle.

    Hope that your results are good, hope you don’t have to wait too long.

  8. Greg

    I’ve never used an iPad for reading or blogging, so not sure how it would go- I mostly read on my Paperwhite or sometimes the computer. Does sound like it might be convenient though? And enjoy the family time you have coming up! Sounds great!

    In the Vines and desperate Girls both look good!

  9. Michelle @Because Reading

    I am so behind on my mamo but need to make an appoint in the next week or so. I had insurance issues and wasn’t able to go, which stinks.
    I love a good staycation, like one that has you doing a whole lot of nothing. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

    Have a great week, Jenea! Happy Reading!

  10. sjhigbee

    I’m glad the preliminary results look promising and hope you don’t have to wait too much longer – it is always so wearing… And glad you are able to chillax with a staycation. It’s the main type of holiday we have these days, given we often have the grandchildren to stay – but it suits us both, given we are fairly flat out during term time and I HATE packing… Have a lovely week, Jenea:)

  11. Maureen Bakker

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the result of your mammogram. That’s always a little scary. Thankfully the radiologist was able to make you feel a little better.
    Here the weather has finally been a little better. It’s still very cold, but I have seen the sun!! I almost didn’t recognize it. 😀
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  12. Samantha

    Hope your test results come back good! Its been so rainy here everything is just one big mud puddle.
    I have an iPad but I can’t blog on it. I need a keyboard! I also get irritated with the glare on my iPad. But, its still a great tool. I have an iPad and a kindle!

    Have a good week!

  13. Lola

    That sounds nasty to have so much rain and wind. I use an ipad for reading only, but it’s a very old one and it can’t handle most newer apps. That sounds nice you have some family time coming up. I hope you’ll enjoy your new review books. Have a great week!

  14. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    Hope you get your results quickly this week so you’re not waiting and wondering. I have an iPad Air and a Kindle. I often use my iPad for reading but have found it not so user-friendly when it comes to blogging. Visiting blogs and commenting is now issue. Typing is easy because I have a blue tooth keyboard that I often use with my iPad, but creating and formatting my own posts? Not so much. But, I know little about the iPad Pro so maybe it would be much better for that.

  15. Lover Of Romance

    Sounds like good news that they didn’t find anything and I hope your health proves to be wonderful!!! Its horrible having to wait. It happened to my mother a couple of years ago and they had to wait 2 weeks to know whether she had cancer or not and it was horrible. I prefer my kindle for reading since it has the e ink and its more easy on the eyes. I do have a tablet I use for blogging with a mini keyboard and I like that which is mostly for when I am not in the mood to sit at a desk or while I am on my breaks at work. 🙂 Hope you love using the Ipad though.

  16. Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra

    Yay for staycations!

    I hope the results of your mammogram come back okay and that you don’t have to wait too long to get them. I hate the stress of waiting.

    I use my iPad for reading, but I have to turn down the display setting because otherwise there’s a lot of glare and it hurts my eyes. I’ve never tried to use it for blogging because I have a hard time typing more than a few words on it. I have a Macbook Air for blogging and love that.

  17. Mallory @ SheisBookish

    I have an iPad, a Kindle Paperwhite, and a Kindle Fire. I love reading on my Paperwhite, I’m okay reading on my iPad, and I really don’t like reading on my Kindle Fire (the resolution just looks off). The iPad feels a little bulky when I’m reading, otherwise it’s okay! I’ve never tried blogging from it before – I prefer something with a good ole’ keyboard. 🙂

  18. chucklesthescot

    That sounds like more promising news for you. Fingers crossed for you! I don’t have ipads or tablets or even mobile phones so I can’t help you with that I’m afraid!

  19. Cricket

    In the Vines sounds good and I was thinking about getting something else after getting a PDF of a review book that I can’t read on my kindle. I like the smaller iPad minis, so they will fit in my purse. Hope all is well and that you have a great week!

  20. Daniela Ark

    Glad to hear nothing alarming came out in the mammogram!I used to use my iPad for blogging and reading but I started to use my iphone more and more so now the ipad is just sitting there
