...back in the saddle...

Hello friends, I am back after an extended absence, I have been fighting the funk (not an illness to be taken lightly), you know when no matter how many cupcakes you eat, how many Disney movies you sit through, and no matter how many times you get hugs and kisses, you just cant shake it?
I am still kinda down, but seem to be moving forward in the right direction.
All the best to all of you, until we meet again. h

Books and Beyond!!!

OK so we all know I have an addiction.....
So I am thinking of what my reading goals for 2009 should be and I came up with a good one.
I need to get a magic little card, but then my goal will be to read books from the library.
I will of course review, and post each of them here at my book shelf!!!!
Yes, that's right, I said READ books from the library.
So the goal is to read 52 books from the library, and to only purchase one book per week. (that puts me at over 100 titles... add those to the books I have on my shelfs I have not read... and maybe we will actually save money! If I check a book from the library and borrow a book from a friend, read a book from my shelf, and then buy just one book, I will have plenty to read (4 books per week)... and still save some money!
