Back in the Swing of Things



I'm back in the swing of things - or at least trying to be! 

Over the last few months, I've been helping a family member and her children navigate a rather difficult life transition -- maybe you can read between the lines. It's been very difficult and emotionally draining. Hopefully, we will all adjust to things over the summer . . .

I've missed blogging and visiting everyone so much -- I feel a bit isolated from the book world!  I've managed to scroll through my Reader a few times, but that just made me miss you all even more! Fortunately, there have been plenty of books to keep me anchored and distracted from reality, and I'll be telling you about them over the next couple of weeks. 

There's a lot of news for me to catch up on -- and to catch you up on!  I've got a mega list of contest winners to announce (who have all been contacted and confirmed), and another long list of new giveaways to post. As I said, I've read some great books, as well as made a couple of reading "mistakes" I want to tell you about. And, I may even change things up a little bit as I reassess what I want A Sea of Books to be. Keep watching!

For now (since I'm only on my lunch break), I'm starting off slow with a lovely Friday Finds. But soon, I'll be swinging high as the sky!
