End of Day Update: While I didn’t get in as many hours today as I had hoped, I did end up finishing Confessions and now I get to wait till next year to find out more!! I finished the review for Confessions, got a few new ideas for content on the blog and sat down with a few color pallets to try on the blog.

- Finished: Pale
- Started: Poser
Challenge: didn’t complete any for today
End of Day Update: Today was not a great day for reading. I did get a little more done with the blog and then spent hours on the phone helping a friend get through some things going on with his daughter. I did finish Pale, and get the review written. I had to step away from Poser due to all the Celebrity and Brand name dropping in the first couple of chapters, but it isn’t so annoying now that we aren’t reading a brand name every 2 seconds. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Challenge: no challenges completed
End of Day Update: Today was a bad day for reading. I had to fight my way through Poser without getting too annoyed and then when the kids got home from school, we sat doing three different sets of homework for hours (who gets homework the first week of elementary school??) After being exhausted most of the day, I fell asleep while reading Letters to My Daughter at 9 p.m. Hopefully with the hubby home tomorrow I can get more reading in.

End of Day Update: Today just didn’t seem to be the day for me on page count. I slept late and didn’t get much time to read with running around at the pool and park with the kids. Hopefully I can get in some extra time tomorrow.

End of Day Update: Today was a bad day for reading. Normally Sunday’s are my reading day, but today it was one thing after another. The Hubby decided that today would be the day to re-arrange like I have been begging him to do for a month, then getting the kids ready for school tomorrow took longer than I expected. After watching True Blood, I passed out and just woke up at 2:53 a.m.:(

  7. great job! you’re moving quick. i just started my third and fourth books. i was going to write reviews & post them all, but i think i’ll just schedule the ones i need to review for a later date and the ones i don’t need to review, i’ll post mini reviews on them. it’s interesting to see everyone’s different ideas and goals.
