AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE:  It's been another crazy week and I've been working on getting caught up on many things outside of the online world!  I'm sure I will have many things to share in future weeks, but nothing this time!  :(

FINAL THOUGHTS:  I made myself a pact that I've got to get caught up on many things that I have been lacking on since I moved almost a year ago.  No more procrastinating!!  I'm hoping once I get caught up on those things, I will have more time to devote to my blogging.  Wish me luck!!


  1. Ooh! Yay for The Mouse and the Motorcycle! How's it going? We just started The BFG. :)

  2. I've been hearing that Swan Thieves is a killer, but also that quite a few people have really liked it. So, I hope you get to the end and love it!

    And The Mouse and the Motocycle...LOVE! Great books, I can't wait to see what you have coming up next!
    Have a fabulous reading week!

  3. Good luck with catching up! I'm a champion procrastinator, so you have my sympathies. Trying to catch up myself, but not doing a very good job. Good luck! :-)

  4. Kristen . . . My little man could not get into The Mouse and the Motorcycle! We only made it halfway through before he wanted to switch to a different book! I'm so bummed! I love those books!

    The1stdaughter . . . I'm only about half way thru Swan Thieves. So far, I think it is slow and I'm confused. I wouldn't say that I don't like it, but I can't say that I like it yet either!

    Alexia561 . . . Whenever I think I'm doing good and finally catching up, something else happens and I fall further behind! I'm making some changes again, so hopefully that will help in getting caught up! Good luck to you and me both!! :)
