            Thoughts about reading material: I usually read all the time and the week I sign up for a read-a-
            thon, my time is all screwy. Curse you Murphy and your Law.

            Thoughts about reading material: I am completely in love with this series already! Time travel back in time to ancient Italy? Boy in armor? Yes, please!

On your mark.  Get set.  READ!


This week it was incredibly unusual for my reading time to be so reduced.  I am not sure whether it was in result of the goals I set for myself or whether I have had a reading burn out.  I'm guessing it wasn't the right time for a read-a-thon for myself but I enjoyed what I did get to read.  Most likely won't be writing a review on everything I finished reading but that's alright as well.  Next time, I will try to set more realistic goals to accomplish.  


  1. Good job on hitting your goal today! My goal is to simply keep track of pages read. I've never done that before and I'm a little curious. Today, I read 52 pages so far. I may hit a few more before bed but I don't think I'll hit 100.

    I'm trying to find a way to follow your blog but the blogger isn't working too good for followers just now. Belle

  2. Aw thanks. I've turned into a reading speed demon. Plus my Kindle is older and doesn't give page numbers so I was just doing it by percent.

    Thanks for trying to follow. Silly Blogger. Sometimes I have to reload people's pages twice before I can follow.
