What are my reading goals for the rest of the year, you ask? (Ok, so you didn't, but I'm telling you anyway.)

1. Finish my Harry Potter re-read, and the new one.
2. Successfully complete the challenges I've signed up for, and do not sign up for more until at least one is done. One in, One out is the new policy around here.
3. Try not to let the TBR pile get overwhelmingly worse. (See the flexibility built into that sentence? Who is gonna define "Overwhelming" for me?)
4. I'm well on my way to completely my personal goal of 52 books read this year, so that one should be easy to do.

Math for the first half of the year: 90 books in (the last one being Lean Mean Thirteen), 36 books read, 54 books behind. One better than last week!

I've been doing much better on reading since I grounded myself. Until yesterday, when I spent all day sewing.

We went to the circus on Saturday night. The Monkey rode an elephant. He's the teeny boy in the red shirt in the middle. I had to look away.


  1. You have such a great variety of books!

  2. the year is half over?!?!

    *sticks fingers in ears* noitsnotnoitsnotnoitsnot

    never enough time for books, is there? :)

  3. We have lost you to the blogs.

  4. I'm pretty sure bibliolatrist just said something about snot snot snot.

  5. Oh my goodness, great list! Mind if I put you on my blogroll so I can come back and read some of these??

  6. By all means, add me! And let me know what you think about some of them.

  7. Gosh, a woman after my own heart! So many of your books are young adult! My Masters Degree was in Young Adult Literature and I taught 7th grade Reading.

    Where do you find the time? I have not been able to pick up a book in 2 years. I am just hoping to find the time for Harry, my lover.
