MONDAY MORNING FINAL THOUGHTS

Well, I ended at 346 pages – way way below my goal. Work was hectic so I didn’t take a reading lunch like I usually do, and I would get easily sucked into spending time with the husband at home. I thought I’d be a reading machine over the weekend, but that didn’t pan out either. I  ran some errands, played some Borderlands, and cooked and cleaned.

On the plus side, I did most of the challenges on the BoB blog, and joined both Twitter chats and the Twitter chats are ALWAYS a blast. Can’t wait for Bout of Books 17 in August!

  1. I missed the Twitter chat. *sad face* I just couldn’t stay awake any longer last night. But I did pretty good with pages read, so that’s at least something! Happy reading today!

  2. I love your #todayinsixwords…I borrowed it for my updates. 😉 Hey, you still had fun and got some reading done. I missed both chats and was bummed. But I loved the challenges this time! They were really fun. I’m curious how you’re liking The Night Circus?? I hear nothing but good things, but haven’t read it yet.

    1. So I actually sit down when I got home today and finished The Night Circus. It was really good! Great writing, very atmospheric. It would make a great movie, someone would have a field day with the special effects.
