Book ten

Yes, today I finished reading book #10 for the year...I'm falling sadly behind in my goal of reading 60 books this year. I'm not sure its truly gonna happen, but it is still early in the year so I still have time to catch up.

I have not been playing on the computer so much anymore, and spending a lot more time with my books so maybe I will catch up.

On my side bar I have the books I am currently reading and I've noticed Moby Dick and Clan of the Cave Bear have not moved at all. Which is about to change, I think. I keep reaching for new unread books everytime I finish one, and I need to put that old pile that is currently sitting on the floor next to my bed, on my nightstand so I SEE them glaring at me when I decide to read, instead of continuing to crack open new books.

It has also been rough because we are in the middle of a move, so things are all over the place, I have no clue where most of my brand new books are that piled up when I went on a stockpile binge this past summer. They are currently in a box in storage somewhere. I know I was able to save a few and stash them in my lower night stand drawer, but I keep thinking about other books that I KNOW I own and just don't have access to right now, and it tends to drive me crazy!

I am currently working on a few book reviews right now, and will be posting them here soon. I am trying to think of a good format that will be constant everytime I post a review, as I keep writing about books, but it's not very uniform here, just kinda a blurb "Hey! I read this book, it's # (insert number) in the year! I liked it!" and thats about it, but I want to start writing better reviews, ones that really dig a bit deeper into the book or the material within. So, we shall see how I do with that. If anyone has any ideas on how to do that and want to offer any help, I'd be grateful. Is there a format or something that makes it easier?

Well, off to work on a few reviews and maybe pick up a book before heading off to work for the evening.
