I’m a Naughty Girl

I’ve been bad. I’ve broken two promises to myself: I ordered books after promising myself that I would not spend money on books, or add to my ridiculously large collection of books that I have yet to read. I ordered from Thriftbooks after swearing off this site forever. I couldn’t resist.  After the debacle with the book…

Having a ‘Grrrr’ Moment

So I’m a member of Paperback Swap.  It’s changed since I first joined and now costs either an annual membership fee, or a $0.55 fee when swapping.  That sucks, but it’s not that big of a deal to me.  But that’s not the point of this post. The point is that, I had an incident with…

Review: Temple of the Winds

Forgive me this isn’t my best work.  I’m still a bit exhausted from the read-a-thon and while I was able to finish the book and take it all in, I’m having a hard time with my words today.  But you’ll get the gist. Temple of the Winds by Terry Goodkind Description: Everything Richard Rahl has learned will…

30 to Go!

I’ve almost made it.  I’m posting this now because as soon as I hit hour 24, I’m going to slip into a 4-hour coma and then watch NASCAR. I’ve had fun.  Hours 20-21 were pretty rough, but I’ve soldiered through.  This has been an interesting experience and I hope to do it again in October….

In The Home Stretch

It’s after 5:00 am here and I’m tired as hell!  I’m so very close to making it to the 24-hour mark, but I don’t know if I will.  At this point I’m working on sheer determination.  I also realized a few hours ago that whether I make it or not, I’m gonna be stinking exhausted…

Seven to Go

I’m still hanging in there with the read-a-thon.  I’ve switched from paper book, to ebook, to audiobook.  I’m still on the same book though.  Temple of the Winds boasts 822 pages so while I’m surprised I’m still on the same book, it’s not unbelievable. I can feel the fatigue creeping in slowly, but I’m still…

Twelve Hours=Halfway There!

We’re almost halfway through and I took a few moments to answer the halfway survey: 1. What are you reading right now? Temple of the Winds by Terry Goodkind 2. How many books have you read so far? Still on the first one 3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half…

Approaching the Eleventh Hour

We’re in the final stretch of the 10th hour of the Read-a Thon and I’m still going strong.  I was worried that I would be tired by now as I didn’t sleep very well last night, but I feel great right now. I’m not speeding through my book like I expected myself to either.  It’s…

Hour Six

I’m at the tail-end of hour five of the read-a-thon and felt like an update was due.  I was disappointed to learn earlier today that, although I signed-up  two or three weeks ago, something went wrong and I’m not included on the list of participants. Such is life.  I didn’t sign-up just to win door…

Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-Thon: Zero Hour

I had a hard time sleeping last night.  I have been so excited for this I was too keyed up to stay asleep.   1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? Philadelphia 2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Temple Of The Winds, because once…

Not Better, But Definitely Not Worse

I have been reminded to be kind to myself and to utilize my support system.  I have a great one, I just sometimes need reminding that I can lean on them.  I am not better, but I’m getting there.  It was my bestie that finally talked me down, as only a bestie can, with brutal…

Bad Days Suck

I’m having such a bad day today mentally, emotionlly…I am feeling despair and not a whole lot else..  *ugh*  Whatever, I’ll get over it. I don’t want/mean to bring anyone else down with me.  I just needed to get that out.  Thank you for allowing me.
