TLC Book Tours: The Hiding Place (GIVEAWAY!!)

About The Hiding Place
Hardcover: 288 Pages

Bout of Books 24 Wrap Up

Bout of Books 24 is complete!  What a great reading week! I definitely spent more time reading than usual this week, and finished three books!  In my original goals I had planned to track time reading, but....I tracked very little. In my daily updates posts, I listed estimated time but didn't want to stress myself out when I should be having fun! But I definitely met my goal--reading, connecting with others (mostly on twitter) and finishing books!

These are the books I finished:

Since my goal was to finish one book, I was thrilled to finish three! I liked all three of these!

Bout of Books 25 starts May 13th! Can't wait for another round of Bout of Books!
