I tell ya, what really saved my bacon was Dewey's Read-a-thon last weekend.  I read 4 books the day of the Read-a-thon, and then, 2 more the next day.  Another strange thing (at least to me)...I started off the year with Suzanne Woods Fisher's first book, and the second to last book that I finished for this challenge was her second book.  No, I didn't plan it that way.  :o)

What about you guys?  Been keeping up with how many books you've read?


  1. Wow, you're doing great! I'm almost at 100 and should reach that in the next week or so. It's kind of fun keeping track. Congrats!

  2. Congrats on reading 100 books! I'm impressed. My goal this past year was to read one book a week (October 2009 - October 2010). I'm reading book #52 right now with a few weeks to spare.

  3. That's quite an accomplishment, Christy! I'm so happy to see that my novel One Smooth Stone was on your list. Hope you enjoyed it. The sequel will be sent off to the publisher soon and will be released in 2011.
    Blessings, Marcia

  4. Becky~

    Good for you!! It's always great to see the end in sight! :o)


    Wow--that's a pretty neat challenge. I finished a similar one last weekend that was to read 55 books between 9/9/09 and 10/10/10.


    Wow...great to hear about the sequel! I was hoping there would be one at some point! :o)

  5. Christy,
    So glad you read 2 of my TX series. I'm honored! Did you review them anywhere?

  6. Lyn,

    Thanks for coming by! No, I don't think I reviewed either one of those, but I remember judging Her Inheritance Forever for the RWA Inspy contest earlier this year...yours was my favorite of all the books I read! :o)

  7. You're amazing!! I'm very impressed and a little jealous over some of those titles... If you need any more reads I have a good pile here I'm going to giveaway and due to nearness, you can have first come first served if you wish!!


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
