Starting Book: Pride and Prejudice

Wordle Mini-Challenge:

Book: Pride and Prejudice
Starting Page: 127

Notes: Nope, didn't happen this hour. No whoosh of reading progress...but oh well. I've got an hour of work then four more of reading :) I'm going to switch to a different book.

Story Mini-Challenge :

Write a story 100 words or less that contains ALL of the following words:


A few years ago I went on a trip to Scotland and met a Shaman named Jim-Bob. Jim-Bob was my unofficial tour guide on the trip. He was cool, but Bob had a major problem.
He had a giant goat that followed him everywhere he went! This was no ordinary goat, mind you. This goat had a laser beam that would shoot out a lime flavored salt! This was horrible for his Shamanic tour guide business, but perfect for making margaritas! So instead of the tour, Jim-Bob invited me to his bar and we partied all night! Scotland (and Jim-Bob's laser goat) ROCKED!

Progress So Far:

  1. Good luck in the readathon! :)

  2. It's hard to read while you're at work; I have my Grandbebe Girl Makayla with me, so I've taken breaks to feed her, read to her, and encourage her to USE the potty chair! :)

  3. Good luck on the Readathon. I should have done this as my weekend seems rather free.

  4. Is your picture Ice Princess?

  5. Pride and Prejudice is a good book! I hope that you are enjoying it!

  6. Here is to hoping you have more time to read all of those great books. Good luck with the rest of the read-a-thon :)

  7. The answer is in Teeny tiny print under's The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg :)

  8. Love your sentence!

  9. OK ... So I thought your word puzzle was Lego Princess! (I know, I'm kinda weird!) You're doing great!

  10. Good job on the read-a-thon! Keep up the great work!

  11. Hope you're enjoying the read-a-thon. I managed to finish Queen By Right and even wrote the review (because I had to...LOL). I can't ever get the wordle to work for me. =O( Someday I'll figure it out. Are you continuing tomorrow? I'm going to try!

  12. Yup! I'm going to read today as well! :)


Thanks for visiting!
