Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



Okay, so this last week was a little more insane than I expected! I did participate in the Bout of Books read-a-thon and did so much better than I expected after looking at the crazy schedule (I will have my wrap up posted later today). This week isn't looking a whole lot better either.  Even though we got a ton of work done last week and over the weekend, we still have tons to do to prepare for Munchkin's birthday and our annual summer party. Not to mention it is going to be a crazy week at work since me & the boss will both be on vacation at the same time, for a whole week! Oh well it will all be worth it to see Munchkin have a blast on his outer space birthday party and to have a fun get together with all of our friends.


  1. You read way more than me and I didn't have as much going on as you. Way to go! Have a great week off and I hope Munchkin's party is a huge hit!

    1. Haha, I have no idea how I manage to squeeze so much into a day or week but even at the end there is still more I wanted to fit in! I think the party is going to be a huge hit and thank goodness for the vacation coming up, I am going to need it to rest and refresh for the next bout of craziness!

  2. That's a impressive list but you need to slow down and enjoy the book savour them.

    Read books: All quiet on the western front
    While you where dreaming by Lola Jane

    Currently reading: Gods of Egypt by Orlando Smart-Powell

    I don't know what I'm reading after that all my books are written down on paper and put in the mix (raffle style close your eyes and pick out a ticket)

    I have made a pledge to my self not to buy anymore books starting from September till at least one book shelf has been read (books are gifts are ok just don't buy them yourself) the money I save when I have the urge to buy a book will be going to my driving lessons, wish me luck I'm gunner need it.

    1. Thank you for stopping by Kay. That is an interesting combination of books that you are reading. I guess everyone reads at different speeds and every book takes a different amount of time to absorb. For me when I am really enjoying a book I tend to become completely absorbed in the book and read it even faster.

      Book buying bans are so hard, that is why I came up with my point system, so I could continue buying but only as I read some books off my shelf first. Good Luck!
