It's Monday What are You Reading? May 5, 2014

This meme starts at Book Journey!

What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

I had a strange week having to interview and hire a new assistant. But God pleased that. He also blessed us as our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter came in Wednesday. They will be here for three weeks so I may have less reading and posting time.  
I only finished two books although I am moving along two others. I got three reviews posted and also posted the usual memes. :-)

I did get visiting done early in the week but none later. I will definitely have to find another time to try to visit with relatives in town.
Thanks as always to all the nice people who visit me.

    Raptor 6 (The Quiet Professionals)
    by Ronie Kendig
    I have started this and like the action 
    and intrigue already.
    I received this through NetGalley.
    Book Description
    Publication Date: May 1, 2014
    Captain Dean Watters keeps his mission and his team in the forefront of his laser-like focus. So when Dean’s mission and team are threatened, his Special Forces training kicks into high gear. Failing to stop hackers from stealing national security secrets from the military’s secure computers and networks isn’t an option. Zahrah Zarrick is a missionary teacher to Afghan children in Mazar-e Sharif. And a target. When Zahrah is captured because of her expertise in quantum cryptology, compromising the US military, Dean is forced to crack the lockbox around his heart—a move that might come at the highest cost.

    4. Audio/MP3

    Audio Book: Gail Bowen, "Shadow Killer," A Charlie D. Mystery (Rapid Reads) Post Hypnotic Press Books
    I am looking forward to another quick mystery with Charlie D.
    "Packs a lot of action into a mere 87 pages. The Rapid Reads line of books is perfect for the adult on the go who desires an intriguing read that can be devoured in one setting -"

    It's Father's Day weekend--a tough time for Charlie D, host of a late-night radio call-in show that offers supportive advice to troubled listeners. For years Charlie has been alienated from his father--a retired politician who was always too busy for his son when Charlie was growing up. The trouble is, his dad has chosen this weekend to attempt to reconcile with his son. Charlie is not keen to forgive. But Charlie's personal issues suddenly seem mundane when an email arrives from a young listener that outlines his very specific plans to kill not just his father but his entire family. The deeply troubled boy could be anywhere, and Charlie has just two hours to discover his identity and stop him from murder.

    I am up to date on my daily Bible reading. I have disciplined myself each morning to read my Bible passage before I pick up print, Kindle or mp3. I am really enjoying the reading.

    Line Edits: We are now finalizing formatting for two ebook re-releases, as well as working on two non-fiction releases.

    This month I have more review books than from my own TBR. :-) 
    I completed all five reviews from prior titles so last week's four books will have reviews for this coming week.
