Sunday Salon – Happy Father’s Day – Weekly Recap – Mail Call

The Sunday Salon.com

The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an informal week in review
gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.

So Happy Sunday Everyone!


My dad passed away back in June 1988 just two weeks after being diagnosed with cancer. I will enjoy my memories today. It will be a relaxing day with the kids making their father’s day special!! I will be reading and watching the NASCAR race. 

How are you spending the day?

Another busy week!

On Monday I returned to a meme that I had taken a short break from. Monday always start out better with a little music and Xmas Dolly hosts Monday’s Music Moves Me. With her co-conductors they orchestrate a virtual dance party every Monday. She is planning a big celebration to celebrate the 100th week just one week from tomorrow.

I also start off each week with Sheila at Book Journey with It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Sheila celebrated her three year blogoversary last week! Congrats Sheila!!

Tuesday I welcomed Tara McTiernan, author of Barefoot Girls. They is still time to enter to win a copy of her book.

Cozy Wednesday brought Alyse Carlson by to tell us about her new Garden Society Mystery series and the first book The Azalea Assault. A wonderful debut! There is a giveaway for this one too!

Thursday was the start of the Clean Your Shelf Giveaway Hop. Lots of great giveaways happening.

I also reviewed Summer Breeze by Nancy Thayer on Thursday. I was a little disappointed in this one.

Friday I reviewed The Devil’s Highway by R. Scott Douglas. Another author to watch.

I didn’t get as much reading done for this week as I had hoped for so Saturday left me without a book to review. I have been slowly moving posts from my old blog Dollycas’s Thoughts to this new blog. I came across an article I wrote back in 2010 about Who Made You The Reader You Are Today? It was one of my favorite posts so I reposted it here yesterday. I hope you will tell me about Who Made You The Reader You Are Today!

I also had an excellent reading week that I will tell you all about tomorrow!!


Just one this week!


The Virtual Blog Tour for this book stops here July 12.


This is such a cool picture I just had to share!!

I hope you have a wonderful day and a glorious week!

Sunday Salon – Armchair BEA – Weekly Recap – Mail Call

gathering place for bloggers.

So Happy Sunday Everyone!

It has been a real busy week. In addition to my normal posts I participated in the Armchair Book Expo America. I hope someday to be able to attend the Live Book Expo America but virtually meeting some new bloggers this past week was a lot of fun. You can read all of my Armchair BEA posts here and you can still enter the giveaway. My giveaway is open to everyone whether you were a part the BEA crowd or not so I hope you will check it out.

Tuesday was New Release Tuesday and so many fantastic books hit the shelves.

Wednesday brought author Laura Bradford to visit for Cozy Wednesday. Her new Amish Mystery Series is off to a wonderful start. A second printing of Hearse and Buggy has already been ordered!

Thursday I reviewed an awesome story. Following Atticus: Forty-Eight High Peaks, One Little Dog, and an Extraordinary Friendship is so inspiring. A must-read!!

Yesterday I posted my review of The Diva Digs Up the Dirt (A Domestic Diva Mystery) by Krista Davis. It is the 6th book in the series and terrific.

The Debut Author Giveaway Hop runs through Wednesday. I hope you will check out the hop!

It  was an excellent blogging week!


This is my favorite week every month. The UPS driver brings me packages almost every day! It is hard to believe that he’s the same driver that delivered to Rhodes Bake-n-Serv when I was the office manager there over 11 years ago. He tries to sneak up the drive so my dogs don’t go crazy barking but it never works and we end up having a good laugh. Well here is what he brought me this week:

I know I need to push away from this computer and
Read, Read, Read!

I hope you have an awesome week!!

So Happy Sunday Everyone!

It was quite a week in Wisconsin. You probably heard me shouting wherever you are Monday night as I was so happy when Green Bay Packer Donald Driver won Dancing With The Stars. He was a smooth dancer, is a great competitor and a wonderful man.

Now let’s talk books!
Monday I did my usual It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? meme. I also learned how dependent I was on the host Sheila. She was away for the day without internet access and was not able to post her link up post until Monday night. I traveled around visiting many blogs from memory, bookmarks and blogs I follow but found myself stumped after that without her linky list. I know I should have scrolled back a week but my pea brain didn’t think of that right away. 🙂

Tuesday I was host for the virtual book tor of Skewered Halo by Brenda Youngerman. This story is excellent but made the mother in me furious. The author is allowing me to give away an e-copy so be sure to enter the giveaway.

Cozy Wednesday brought author Bailey Cates and her brand new series to Escape With Dollycas. Brownies and Broomsticks: A Magical Bakery Mystery is a charming cozy and I am giving away 2 copies.

Thursday I reviewed Blackberry Summer and Woodrose Mountain by RaeAnne Thayne. These were a wonderful break from the mysteries I usually read.

Friday brought Mr. Dollycas as a guest reviewer for the virtual book tour of Back Channel by William Bertram MacFarland.

Saturday I reviewed Deadly Currents by Beth Groundwater. Beth will be guest posting here on Cozy Wednesday this week as the second book of the series, Wicked Eddies (An RM Outdoor Adventures Mystery), was released this month. I will be giving away a copy.

I am also participating in the Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop! I am giving away a copy of Blackberry Summer by RaeAnne Thayne and Final Sail by Elaine Viets.

New Arrivals This Week

 

The Get Caught Reading Contest runs until May 31.
There is still time to send me a picture of yourself
“Caught Reading”.

I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day WEEKEND!!

On Monday my husband and I celebrated our 29th Wedding Anniversary. Times sure flies!

Now on to news of a bookish nature.

It was another full week. Tuesday I reviewed Flipping by Mary A. Ellenton. Have you ever read a book where you actually hated all the characters but the story was good? That’s what this book was like for me.

Cozy Wednesday brought Victoria Hamilton here for a visit. Her new book, A Deadly Grind (A Vintage Kitchen Mystery) is excellent as was her guest post. This is a new series and I can’t wait to read more.

Thursday I reviewed Dollhouse by the Kardashian sisters. My daughter loved this book and while is was O.K. for me I think their fans and young adult girls would enjoy the story.

Friday I reviewed The Big Kitty (A Sunny & Shadow Mystery). This is new series and I am anxious to see where the author takes us next.

Yesterday I reviewed Died On The Vine by Joyce Harmon. This is another new series and my first book in Read Your Name Challenge.

I also completed the First in A Series Challenge and the What An Animal Challenge.

gathering place for bloggers.

So Happy Sunday Everyone!


My daughter Katy is celebrating her 4th Mother’s Day and my daughter-in-law Amber is celebrating her first. Hard to believe it has 27 years since I celebrated my first Mother’s Day. The years fly by so fast. There is no greater joy on the earth than being a Mom! I hope all you Moms have a very happy day!!

This past week I reviewed some excellent books and one that just wasn’t my “cup of tea”.

Midnight in Peking by Paul French was interesting but was just overloaded with too much stuff, description, details, dates of happenings away from the mystery. It just wasn’t for me.
The Naked Gardener was my favorite book of the week followed closely by Monkey Wrench. Terri Thayer was here for Cozy Wednesday and she is giving away a copy of Monkey Wrench so be sure to enter to win.
Final Sail by Elaine Viets and Life Without Parole by Clare O’Donohue rounded out my week of reviews. There is a giveaway for two copies of Life Without Parole as well.

I finished the Cruzin’ Thru The Cozies Challenge and the Finish The Series Challenge. With those complete and it only being May I added one more challenge this week. I am having so much fun with the A-Z Challenge, just 3 letters to go, that I am going to try the Read Your Name Challenge. The books have to be read in order. I read my first book this week.

This was the week all the new cozies arrived that are coming out next month plus some other books made their way to my door.

My June Reading Schedule is fully booked!! 🙂

The Get Caught Reading Contest runs until May 31. There is still time to send me a picture of yourself “Caught Reading”.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!!

My best event of this past week was my granddaughter Natalie Nicole making her arrival on Tuesday at 2:17 p.m.

She weighed 8 pounds 13 ounces and is 20 inches long.
Mommy, Daddy and baby are doing great. Thankfully they live close by so spoiling by Nana and Papa will be very easy.

Now for book related news:
I took part in my normal It’s Monday! What Are You Reading Meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. I had been taking part in a meme Monday’s Music Moves Me sponsored by Xmas Dolly for several weeks and am taking a break from that for a while. There were just not enough hours in the day to visit everyone. I have to say it was fun kicking off the week with some really good tunes.

Tuesday I reviewed an excellent book set here in Wisconsin in the early 1970’s.
The Sausage Maker’s Daughters

It is one of the best books I have read in many years and again it is a debut from a new author. So many good books already in 2012 and several are first publications.

Wednesday brought Erika Chase by for Cozy Wednesday. I am giving away 2 copies of her first book in the Ashton Corner Series, A Killer Read.

Thursday the virtual tour for A Grand Murder by Stacy Verdick Case made one of its last stops at Escape With Dollycas. I am giving away my gently read copy.

Friday I posted my review of Harlan Coben’s Stay Close. He is one of my favorite authors.

Saturday I announced a Very Special Giveaway. Viking is sponsoring a giveaway for one of my followers to win Luanne Rice’s new book Little Night and the new paperback version of The Silver Boat before their release dates on June 5.

I received several review requests from authors and a few e-books.

Just Click the images in the sidebar if you would like to enter.
You can click on the Current Giveaways tab above to find my personal giveaways.

The UPS truck did not bring any deliveries but
I did receive a couple of e-books that sound really good.

Can you overfeed your reader?

A few months back I never thought I would want an electronic reader. I like the feel of a book in my hands, that new book smell, turning the pages, a pretty bookmark to mark my spot. Then a good friend sent me Kindle. She neglected to tell me how addicting these readers are. She didn’t warn me about all those free books out there available with just a click. I started with a few from NetGalley and then I signed up to receive emails from Pixel of Ink and Ereader News Today.

When you get hardcovers and paperbacks and put them on your To-Be-Read shelf you get to see them everyday. You know they are waiting patiently for you to pick them up and enjoy them. The biggest problem with an e-reader is that To-Be-Read shelf is hidden. You only see it when you turn the e-reader on and then scroll through the listing of titles. This hidden TBR shelf can grow and grow, you keep downloading books, feeding your reader more books than you can possibly read in any foreseeable time frame.

Last week I admitted I am a Book Addict and proud of it. Then I realized my addiction is worst than I thought. I think I am becoming an e-book hoarder. As long as I am the only one who sees my hidden To-Be-Read shelf I can pack away as many books as the reader will hold. I am going to try to stay away from the free book offers I really am, but some are just too good to pass by. Oh dear, I may need a support group for this. Is there anyone out there like me? How many books are waiting for you on your e-reader? I have 131 waiting for me and thankfully only a handful are for review. This is a habit I can change, oh but those covers look so inviting. I will stop, soon or maybe later. Maybe my e-reader needs to go on a diet. I wonder if there is a Biggest Loser plan I can follow 🙂

Until then I have a free book offer to share with you so you can feed your reader too. Last month I took part in the Virtual Blog Tour for Brian Holers book, Doxology. I received an email last week asking me to spread the word that this book would be offered free on April 26 & 27 at Amazon.com. It is already free if you are a Prime Member.  Here’s The Link.

Happy Earth Day!!

I hope you all have an awesome week.

Sunday Salon – Weekly Wrap Up – Free E-book Offer – Back The Truck Up!!

The Sunday Salon.com

 The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an informal week in review
gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.

So Happy Sunday Everyone!

It’s been a busy week around here!

Dorothy St. James was here for Cozy Wednesday with a giveaway,
The Virtual Blog Tour for Titanic 2012 by Bill Walker stopped here Thursday,
Book World is sponsoring a giveaway for a
copy of The Half Stitched Amish Quilting Club,

plus I reviewed Ocean Waves by Terri Thayer
along with wrapping up some giveaways and the weekly memes.

I also received an email on behalf of author Steve O’Brien. I reviewed his book Redemption Daylast month. Steve will be offering the Kindle version FREE on Amazon from April 15th – 19th. It’s a really good book!!

Here is a little write up from Steve about April 19 and its significance in Redemption Day.

April 19 has become a date marking horrific violence in this country’s history.

The date is not well known like September 11 or December 7, the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Unlike dates that commemorate great military victories or the end of World Wars, April 19 is about a different kind of violence.

Violence between citizens of this nation and the government itself.

Like most traditions it began as a coincidence, but later transitioned into a date of significance for members of sovereign citizen groups like the Posse Comitatus.

It began in 1985. Jim Ellison was the leader of a sovereign group called CSA (The Covenant, the Sword and the Arm of the Lord. On April 19, 1985, three hundred federal officers surrounded his compound in northern Arkansas. Ellison surrendered and was later convicted of conspiracy and weapons charges. Aside from traditional firearms, the federal officers rounded up hand grenades, plastic explosives, blasting caps, land mines and even a US Army anti-tank rocket. One of Ellison’s men, Richard Wayne Snell was charged with murder and his execution took place ten years later as fate would have it, on April 19.

April 19, 1993 the FBI stormed the Branch Davidian complex outside Waco Texas, killing seventy six members, including seventeen children. David Koresh, the leader of the Branch Davidian group was sought for illegal weapons charges, something sovereign groups adamantly believed was not a crime, but a right. This came on the heels of the Ruby Ridge shootings which had enraged members like Tim McVeigh. Terry Nichols and McVeigh saw Waco as yet another illegal intrusion by a corrupt government.

Following Waco, April 19 became a date of significance for sovereign groups. They would use the date as a symbol and cause to retaliate against the government.

On April 19, 1994 militia leader Linda Thompson issued a call for sovereign citizen groups to assemble in Washington DC, armed and in uniform. The purpose of the assembly was the forced repeal of the Brady Bill and the arrest of Congressmen and Senators for treason. She identified herself as the acting adjutant general of the Unorganized Militia of the United States. Although later rescinded, her call to arms became known as the Thompson Ultimatum.

At nine pm April 19, 1995, CSA member, Richard Wayne Snell, was put to death by lethal injection in Arkansas. Twelve hours earlier, Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols had ignited a truck bomb outside the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City killing 168 people.

For McVeigh and Nichols the date was not a coincidence.

You can get your free copy by following this link: Free Copy of Redemption Day.

This is one of the nicest things to see out my office window. He always brings me such nice packages. This week he brought me:

I also added a few free books to my Kindle.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!!
Happy Reading!!
