I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Mailbox Monday & What are you Reading?

Mailbox Monday is a Weekly Event hosted by
Marcia at The Printed Page
jump over to see what others have received this week.

I was given the opportunity to review Fearless by Max Lucado and downloaded the pdf copy. It has been hard to read on the computer and I really didn't want to print out 200+ pages but felt that was the only way. I was in the middle of printing another chapter when I received the hardcover in the mail. Yea. It's a beautiful book and I'm looking forward to finishing it. Review should be posted September 5, the release date.

Two review books I don't think I told you about:
Dancing With Ana
Possible Futures: Creative Thinking for the Speed of Life

Purchased at Friends of the Library:
Of Mice and Men
Goose Chase
Anne of Avonlea
Pay it Forward (for BBAW giveaway)


What are you reading on Monday? is a weekly meme hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book blog where you post books completed last week and plans for upcoming books. Jump over to her blog and see who else is participating.

I played around with three columns on a workbook site but if I convert this blog I'll lose my widgets. I think I can replace them all but.... Still no list of unread books in the house. I don't think I want it written down anywhere my husband might see it {blush}

I think that, for now, I'll just keep track of what books need to be read for reviews and/or challenges. I haven't kept this up-to-date. I've been drowning in reviews and haven't come up for air yet.

Looking forward to BBAW but nervous too.

I still can't get into Wait Until Twilight. I'm going to put it down for a while and try again.
Converting to 3 columns is tough, since you have to copy and save everything, and out it back. Whay don't you wait until the new year and start fresh?

I feel faint just reading your list! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you to win the BBAW!

Faye( Ramblings of a Teenage Bookworm) said...

WOW! Ditto w/ what J.Kaye said lol :D

i read of MEN & MICE 4 my sopmore year in HS, it was good.

Book Dragon said...

Bluestocking: Fearless doesn't use the same translation of the Bible I do and it is still a great and worthwhile read.

Allison: well it helps if your husband cooks, and you forget about the laundry.... I loved A Circle of Souls

Jenny: ah, shucks, thanks Jenny

Jenny Girl: I put it down several times, took me more than two weeks to read it. Keep trying, it ended well. And yes, I'm thinking of starting fresh in 2010-except I've already joined several challenges. We'll see.

J. Kaye: You feel faint? I bow down in your presence! question? win BBAW?

Faye: My daughter did too but I don't know if I ever did. I may remember once I get into it ;-)
