I am doing great reading this year! So excited...well I guess that most of my "reading" has been audio, but hey to me that counts! It also helps that so far work has been very light. I have been doing well with my challenges too! Yeah!! I might finish a bunch this year! Keeping my fingers crossed.

Here is the list of books completed so far:
1. Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins
2. Search - Nora Roberts
3. Night Fairy - Lara Amy Schlitz
4. Private - James Patterson
5. Caught - Harlan Corbin
6. Little Bee - Chris Cleave
7. Where the God of Love Hangs Out - Amy Bloom
8. Adoration of Jenna Fox - Mary Pearson

Read-a-Thon April 2011 - 4:30am EST

The Wake of Forgiveness has pulled me in...and I already know a friend who would love it! I am about 80 pages in - on my second cup of coffee and am now in the company of my 4 year old - who is a morning person like me...but 4am...geez. :) She is watching Carebears and I am going back to reading. :) I so love read-a-thon days!! Just wish they came more often!

Last few hours of the Read-a-thon

It's 2:16am EST and I am here for a few hours of reading...whoo hoo! I am reading Wake of Forgiveness....at the beginning trying to figure out if I like it or not :)

Read-a-Thon April 2011

Read-a-thon day is here!! Yes I look forward to the 2 read-a-thons with great anticipation. I did this one as well...unfortunately I am not going to get to read until probably 9pm EST. We have a storage area at our old city that needs to be moved. Since my Mom is here to watch the kiddos we are moving it this weekend. The great thing is all of our stuff is at the new house - the very bad thing is I am missing a lot of the read-a-thon. I will be there in spirit and I will be listening to an audio book so I am trying. :) I am reading Room by Emma Donoghue and am enjoying it. I am at a good part so I really want to finish it! :) So I will see you all at 9 and I am hoping to participate the whole time in the fall read-a-thon!
