Happy Sunday, fellow Saloners! It’s been a semi-productive week here at Reading and Ruminations. Even though I’m still behind on my reviews, I have been posting again: I participated in Teaser Tuesdays, in which I teased my current read: Right of Thirst by Frank Huyler, and Booking Through Thursday, which discussed which books we’d like to read for the first time again. I also did something major this week: I finished a book. It was Tap and Gown by Diana Peterfreund, the fourth and final book in her Ivy League series. It only took me a few hours to read, but it was EXACTLY what I needed, and it came at exactly the time I needed it. I was beginning to get a bit discouraged by the fact that I hadn’t finished a book in a month. I haven’t been reading as much, but that was a pretty harsh reality for me. So it was nice to kind of get over that hump.
Like I mentioned last week, I’d like to do something fun for the month of June to try to make up for the fact that I had such a hard time reading during the months of April and May. I will have an official announcement sometime this week- I think it will probably come on Wednesday, since I’m still working out all the details.
I’m also still about four books behind on my reviews. I’d actually like to get all those reviews done during the next week as well. I’d like to have a blank slate to work with for the month of June, at least in terms of blog posts. I’m also hoping to have a blank slate with books as well, but we’ll see how that goes.
Well, it’s probably time for me to get back to cleaning. I’m hoping to rearrange my bedroom furniture sometime in the next few weeks, and possibly replace my bed (actually, I’m going to do this just as soon as I can figure out how to get the maximum amount of space in my room even with all my large pieces of furniture) and paint my room (this one is a really big maybe). For those in the States, enjoy the rest of the long holiday weekend. I for one am really looking forward to having tomorrow off work.
