Well, March came in like a lamb with temps hitting the high 70°s the first three days of the week, then dipping down slightly. We have had rain and thunderstorms all weekend. Next week doesn’t look as good, but I am counting down the days until Spring. I went a little crazy during Audible’s Sitewide Sale and grabbed books in series I had on my wishlist. I had been slowly picking them up but grabbed titles under $5.00. I spent around $60.00 and thought that was a lot, but saw people that spent hundreds, particularly romance listeners. For the month of February I read/listened to 12 books towards my Goodreads & Audiobook Challenge goals. Oh, and I did my taxes and sent their pymt. Ugh. Elbow hugs! Stay Caffeinated.

    March has been exactly like you described for us as well.. a couple of storms but no rain (which we so desperately need here in Cali)… Maybe will look for the Wyoming Wilde series and do the March series challenge 🙂

    The discounts for the Audible sale didn’t seem that great compared to the member credit price. I didn’t see any $5 deals. Maybe I just didn’t look carefully. I just started Crowbones. Hope we both love it!

    You did good on the sale. I went to $75.00.
    I am thinking about working on my taxes…
    Sounds like you had a good month of reading. I have been running a little behind so I listened to two shorter titles.
    I’ve been enjoying books in the Others series. I hope to listen to book 4 soon.
    Hope your weather starts to move to Spring.
    Have a good week and Happy Reading!

    yes I put things in my cart for the Audible sale and then check to see if I can get them at the library or on KU etc. I started with $160 for 38 titles and whittled it down to $124 for 31 titles. I was happy with that. Some titles may not be at the library forever and some not in audio at all. I hope your weather stays more spring than winter!

    My son treated me to an Amazon gift card at Christmas, to buy myself books. I keep putting it off though because I only want to buy a book when I have time to read it! I hope you enjoy the audiobooks.

  7. Mary Kirkland

    I probably spend too much on books. It’s nice to win giftcards that I can spend on books and win books too. It keeps the costs down. NetGalley has really helped too.

    It was 80 here for a day and now it’s cold again. We call this our second Winter.

    We had a gloriously warm 70 degrees yesterday. It was fabulous and now we are back to the 40s. At least it isn’t snowing! I didn’t even know there was an audible sale, which is probably for the best!

  9. sjhigbee

    Ooo… temperatures in the 70s! I would LOVE to bask in that kind of sunshine, though later on the year, I’m guessing it gets a lot more ferocious than that. I hope you get a chance to sit outside and enjoy that – and that those thunderstorms go elsewhere. Have a great week, Kimberly.


    The thunderstorms roared through here last night with quite a light show and loud thunder. I loved it because I know that means Spring is on the way. I can’t wait!

    Have a great week!

    We were just saying here how March came in like a lamb as well! lol I also spent more than I wanted/planned on the Audible sale. And I stuck to the ones under $5 too. I’m behind in the series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I need to read the second one in the From Blood and Ash series. Hope you have a good week!

    We’ve had gorgeous weather for about 2 weeks now, which I am loving. But that also means it’s pollen season. My blue car is green. I’ll take it as long as we keep these warm temps!

    Enjoy your week!

  13. Stormi

    The weather is so up and down! I seen a lot of people grabbing on the audible sale, I seen some spend lots of money too…lol.

    Hope you have a great week and happy reading!

    12 is a good amount. I can only dream of that many 🤣 books are expensive. I rarely buy them, instead getting them as presents. I did buy a book with birthday money last week – £16.99 😱 – it was a signed special edition though …

  15. A Voracious Reader

    I saw the sale, but had to pass. Trying to save money right now. Ugh. I still need to do taxes and don’t wanna. lol And double ugh.


    Kinda jealous that you’re done with your taxes. I need to prepare mine and work on my Dad’s books.
    Have a great week!

  17. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Wow! Your deals are awesome! Sadly I’m not an audio reader, otherwise I would’ve jumped on that sale too! I also got my taxes paid this week and apparently my being out of a job for 2 months meant I owed the state for the first time that I can remember. I’ve been lucky in the past to never owe. Luckily it wasn’t too bad. But yeah, not the best refund this time around.

    Nice new reads! I need to get caught up on Jennifer’s series, I’m still a book behind. I need about 4 long holiday weekend to tackle 4 monster reads! I love that they’re super long but with a busy worklife now, it makes it harder to get the reading done in a timely manner! Lol.

    Happy Reading!

    We had some great sunny days here and it was lovely, it really feels like spring is almost here. That’s awesome you grabbed some good deals during the audible sale.

  19. Linda @ (un)Conventional Bookworms

    Time is flying so fast I haven’t even done a Sunday Post in over six months… I have no idea how that happened.
    I also didn’t know about the audible sale, which is probably a good thing, as I totally would have gone for it, too.
    Here, spring has started early, even if it gets cold at night. I had to scrape ice off my windshield three mornings last week, but it was nice and warm during the day. Birds are chirping, and flowers are growing – it’s wonderful.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

      Oh my tbr pile is out of control…but 12 audiobooks for $60 …could not pass that up. especially when they were on my wishlist already.

  20. Natalie @Natflix&Books

    It was beautiful in my neck of the woods today. Definitely ready for spring. I use overdrive and hoopla through my library for audiobooks. It’s awesome. Happy reading!

  21. Greg

    It’s been warm here too (today, anyway) but we didn’t quite hit 70. I’m ready for spring. Hope you’re having a nice weekend. Good to see a new Mihalik book out. 🙂
