  2. Thanks Faye! 🙂 I am still on book one (good grief) but haven’t had a lot of just reading time yet with all the action around me today… helping with a charity event this morning and going back yet this afternoon, but I have been listening to audio when I have not been able to sit with a book 🙂

  3. I’m still going strong! (well, maybe a bit giddy from tiredness now..) Good luck to everyone and congrats to the challenge winners thus far 🙂

After a stop-and-go (mainly stop) morning, I’m finally settled in to my reading spot, with java, juice, and water on the table and a bowl of grapes sitting alongside my reading pile. Thanks so much for hosting (and I know what it’s like when there is a houseful of noisy, bothersome [but you gotta love ’em!] bebes that won’t leave you alone)! 🙂
