Happy eBook Day!

Hi Everyone,

Today is National Read an eBook Day! I finished Mistletoe on Main Street by Olivia Miles, as part of the Forgotten Book Challenge. I am also finishing The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, for the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge.

What eBook are you reading today?

Enjoy!

The Past, Present, and Future!

Hi Everyone,

The past few weeks have been brutal, health wise. I was too weak to read at the beginning, and there have been a lot of naps during the day, which is not like me. I did finally manage to watch the four new episodes of the Gilmore Girls… and let’s just say that I am still processing my feelings.

The present: This weekend I was able to get back in the flow of reading. Plus, I have managed to complete all emails and I finally have empty inboxes. YAY!Ā  Since, the new Gilmore Girls episodes only contained information about 1 single book… I have added it to the challenge page.

The Future!!!

Well now, here’s the fun and exciting news. Yes, several news items. So hold on tight:

  1. Over the course of the final weeks of this year, I will be posting 100 book reviews. Yes, my friends, you read that right! 100 Book Reviews over the next 20 days. We are going to end 2016, with a BANG! I hope you all enjoy. šŸ™‚ Continue reading

Buried Treasures and a New Year!!!

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year!!! I am being totally honest here, I actually did a happy dance on the first day of the new year. I mean, really, I don’t think my family could have handled much more from 2013. I am grateful to welcome in the new year. IĀ don’t wantĀ to jinx my family, so all I am going to say is that so far, we are happy with the new year and we are looking forward to some of the changes that will occur.

As for me personally, I am looking forward to reading all the amazing books that 2014 has to offer. I set a new Goodreads challenge for 100 books this year, though I plan to at least double that, so long as this year is more pleasant and cooperative. (It HAS to be moreĀ peaceful!) (Last year, I read 110 books, which is pretty impressive considering the last 5 months of the year were a complete disaster for my family.) Currently, I am reading Other Systems from The ListĀ and will post that review next week. (I will be away from my computer this weekend.) I hope you all are enjoying your new year! Do you have any specific reading plans/goals?

C & C wanted posterWhile thinking about how I plan to make the most of this year, and setting out a reasonable reading goal, I noticed other peopleĀ setting there own challengesĀ andĀ goals.Ā Ā The writing duo of Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey posted an interesting article and poster. They are looking for ebook hoarders, who have downloaded all sorts of free ebooks during the last year, but the books got “buried” underneath all the other books… and well, does this sound familiar? So they have started a new campaign looking for readers who have downloaded Countermeasure or Uncharted, but haven’t read them yet, because of all the other ebooks that they have downloaded. This triggered me to thinking about how many books I downloaded last year, because they were free, but I haven’t seen the titles in quite a while. Plus, I know several other people who seem to be overwhelmed by their ereaders, because of all the free books, that they have no idea where to even begin! So, here’s what I am thinking… How about a challenge for all us? We each try to find 10 books this year, that we have downloaded for free and read them this year. What do you all think?

 

I just want to thank each and every one of you for your continued support. May all of your dreams come true in this new year and may the year be filled with amazing books!

Enjoy!
