I have not fallen off the face of the earth!

I have not posted here in forever, pretty much just because nobody ever reads this thing, but I really want to keep a journal of my books. So, I think I will do so, even tho I don't think anyone reads it.

This year, I thought I would try to read 65 books, even though last year my goal was to read 50 and only made it to 36, I think. So, if I couldn't make it to 50 I don't know what makes me think I can make it to 65. I guess I could if i did absolutely nothing but read, but that won't happen simply because I enjoy many things, and won't just read and do nothing else.

So far this year I have read 18 books. I just finished #18 last night and started #19.

"The secret life of bees" This book has been around the block. I have seen it mentioned on several blogs, and i have finally gotten to it myself. I cannot put it down. It is just flying right on. Which is good, because I have been in a buying mood for...well for most of this year actually. i am a member of, and oh man! It is toooooo easy to buy buy buy!!! All I do is pay for postage. So, I love it, but my to be read shelf is overflowing!!!!

I keep telling myself "I'll wait until next year to even think about buying any new books," and then! there I go, ordering more!!! or I tell myself I will wait until I have read 10 books before I order 1! That doesn't work either! I need to have my credit card taken away! lol. Ok, I am off to read some more of Secret life...rating and review to come soon!
