So with my week finally settling down this last week (after the chaos of vacation and Easter) I got down to reading again. Sadly, that did not work out so well . .
We ended up spending all day Thursday in the Emergency Room at Hasbro Children's Hospital with Munchkin. He was having extreme difficulty breathing and we ended up having to bring home a nebulizer to continue his treatments all weekend.  Thankfully he responded well and is nearly better. He did manage to get an ear infection again too, even though he has tubes in his ears! I swear I just can't keep him healthy.

 I have a bunch of requested reviews I want to get to so have really been pushing myself to read whenever I have a spare moment.  With that in mind I also realized that we are dangerously near the end of the month and I need to get some writing done to avoid having to release some more of my writing, but more on that on my writing post coming up next Wednesday.  I hope some of you were able to participate in Dewey's Readathon this weekend, I was able to participate at least a few hours on Saturday and will have a full report for you later this afternoon.

 Later this week we move into May so I will have a the 2014 Challenge Update for you, I am still pretty pleased with myself.  I have done a lot of reading this year, been keeping up with my reviews, added some new features to the blog and have more exciting things coming up.  May 12 - 18 is Children's book week in which I hope to have lots of not only picture books for you but also some early readers and middle grade books to share with young readers in your lives. I have also been working very hard on a 'From the Book' project to be introduced in May.

Somehow with all of this happening I still managed to treat myself to new nails! My Easter nails didn't last long so last Sunday night I decided to paint them again. I found this polish called Berry Scary in this Etsy shop, it is a purple glitter polish that has a berry scent when dry! I was a bit skeptical but was totally shocked how strong the smell was when it dried and it lingered for a few days even.  I do have to say though I could do without the glitter, I would have preferred just the transparent purple color with the smell.
Later last week I also wanted to try out these great false nails with frogs and rain. I got them for 'April Showers' at this Etsy Shop so needed to wear them before the end of the month! They worked out really well, and I used these little nail stickers instead of glue and they didn't damage my nails at all.
