Sunday Synopsis: November 15, 2009

For my little Sunday Synopsis this week, I am going to give you a very shortened version . . . simply because I have not gotten a lot done!! I did do a little bit of reading, adding to my ever-growing list of reviews that need to be done. I have started the arduous process of working through my Reader. After two hours of reading through posts this afternoon, it still stands at 1000+ though. I guess you could say that I have officially dug myself a hole that is going to take a while to get out of!! But, I am now feeling a bit more rejuvenated!!! My busy time of year at working is waining down and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!! And, my reading is getting back up to par thanks to Suzanne Collins!! If only there was a way that I could personally thank her for giving me a little more motivation and letting me successfully escape from my stressful world for a while. And, to think that I will be starting Catching Fire as soon as I post this only puts my heart at ease even more . . . not to forget the big ol' smile on my face!!! Thank you Suzanne!!! :)

So, I am going to leave you with two things . . . my one post from this last week and my disgustingly LONG list of books I need to review. Wish me luck this week!! :)
