Your Turn: Tell me about your reading this week!


  1. Just finished the 3rd book in High Summer Read-a-Thon. I have 2 others in progress: The Hunger Games and Keturah and Lord Death. I should finish Hunger Games, but since Keturah is an audio book, it will probably be two weeks before I have enough alone time in the car to finish listening to it.

    1. Elsi ... Great job!! I loved The Hunger Games, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!! I got out of listening to audios, but am hoping to get back to it since I'm finally back to working out! Good luck with the final hours!!

  2. Great job! I'm on my 5th book. Dancergirl by carol tanzman

    1. FICTION STATE OF MIND ... Awesome job!!!!! I can't wait to read about ALL the books!

  3. You did well! I didn't do as much as the other participants, but I'm not unhappy. :) I'm learning to be happy with small steps. (lol)

    1. 365andMe ... I am constantly reminding myself about the baby steps!! LOL!! I am posting my final numbers later this evening. Thanks to some easy reads, I am feeling good about my end results too. Just wanted I needed these days!
