Well … it’s been three hours and I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished much. The house is now quiet (just me and the pets) and I find I’m slowly making some progress.
I had breakfast and now it’s time to make a dent.
Goal: Finish some books and relax
Pages read: 89
Time spent reading: 1 hours 55 mins
Titles finished: none yet
How to Write Love Letters by Michelle Lovric
Mini Challenges Completed:
I haven’t been blogging here at all lately … but the Read-a-Thon is happening today and I wanted a place to share. I haven’t been able to participate in the past couple and I almost didn’t make this one.
I’ll get into that later I’m sure. For now, here’s the intro meme and I want to start reading!
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? I am in Boise, ID today and it’s going to be nice and hot for reading in the hammock.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I picked out a lot of books i’ve been wanting to read for awhile but I think My First New York would be my choice. I’m going on my second trip to NYC at the end of May and I can’t wait!
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? Veggies and hummus dip and vegan jerky. I’m on a two week cleanse so my snacks are very limited.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I sold and had to move out of my house in five days (aka yesterday). Moved in with the parents for a few weeks. AND I’m building a brand new house (see below). This read-a-thon is much needed to relax and destress.
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? I don’t think I was able to participate last year, but I know this year I am very prepared with my snacks and drinks (easy when all you eat are veggies, drink water and make a smoothy).
Here’s what I’m reading from today:
I’m back! Hopefully I’ll be around more regularly and I can get caught up on all my blogging. Our library just had their spring booksale in a brand new location and I found all sorts of good finds. Couldn’t help but share:
- Keeper of the Bride by Tess Gerritsen
- Sunset Embrace by Sandra Brown
- Bittersweet Rain by Sandra Brown
- Nancy’s Mysterious Letter by Carolyn Keene
- Garden of Shadows by V.C. Andrews
- Heaven by V.C. Andrews
- Boxcar Children – Bicycle Mystery by Gertrude Chandler Warner
- The Carousel by Richard Paul Evans
- The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson
- Irish Rebel by Nora Roberts
- Enchanted by Nora Roberts
- Blue Dahlia by Nora Roberts
- Black Rose by Nora Roberts
- Red Lily by Nora Roberts
- Dance Upon the Air by Nora Roberts
- Heaven and Earth by Nora Roberts
- Face the Fire by Nora Roberts
It’s been a slow couple reading months but hopefully I’ll be catching up soon on some good summer reads and this blog will be busy all over again!
It has been a crazy first quarter but I’m hoping to get all caught up today with my reviews, 1st quarter update, and my Spring Reading Thing challenge list.
Here’s to hoping I can stay up to date from here on out. Maybe having a goal of 10 books a month read is creating more blog work on my end.
Author: Mary Roach
Finished: October 12, 2011
Format: First Edition
After reading my first Mary Roach book I’ve been wanting to check out her others but haven’t had much fo a chance to. I finally opened up Spook to continue the journey.
It’s definitely not what I expected and I think I enjoyed Stiff more but it was still a good time and very interesting information. I think sometimes Mary Roach enjoyed the researched more than our reading her books. It would be great to find the answers to all these questions and present them to the public in new and interesting manners.
Looking forward to the next one.
