I am failing miserably. Is there a challenge for just reading? LOL


  1. Great list and pic! I love the EAP art. I'm anxious to hear what you think of Hill House. I thought I would like it much better than I did. I'm also reading The Scarlet Letter, as you probably already knew! So glad you're joining me again. Enjoy!

  2. Are you liking Gatsby? I really did. I hope you're enjoying the reading. So glad you're joining me again. =O)

    Be sure to stop by the blog and check out the mini-challenges, giveaways, and the prize page.

    1. I do really like it! I just had too many distractions yesterday! I didn't get to finish! Little Man had his therapist appointment, we had to do some grocery shopping, etc. Today I WILL finish! :)

  3. How's it going? What are you thinking of Hill House so far? I've read two so far this week. I finished The Scarlet Letter last night and I was like...meh. I'm really disappointed that I didn't like it more. =O(

    Also, wanted to remind you that I have the mid-week read-a-thon mini-challenge posted. All the links to mini-challenges/giveaways are listed below the read-a-thon banner just above the post section (below the slide show). Stop on by!

  4. Hey, girl! I haven't been doing too great myself. See my update sticky. Quite a fail actually. And I started off the week so promising. Oh well, there's always next time, right? I do have good news. You were one of the daily winners for day six. To find out how to claim your prize, visit this post: Congrats!

    You gave me an idea for the Spring read-a-thon when you said, "Is there a challenge for just reading?" I think I'm going to implement some reading sprint challenges or some mini-reading marathon challenges during the read-a-thon. What do you think? I want to make the read-a-thons more about the reading. =O)


Thanks for visiting!
