This SHOULD be a Book Review...

I came on here determined to catch-up on book reviews, but then I noticed that this is my 1000th post! It seemed a little bit special, so I figured that I would acknowledge that and further procrastinate on book reviews. Not like I need many excuses to do so, though... Anyway, some notes:

  • I really wish I was sleeping right about now! It is only 7:30 in the morning, but I have already been up for two hours! I don't think I got very many hours of sleep last night, so I thinking today is going to be a coffee day! As soon as I 'wake up' I am going to go put the slow cooker on.
  • I am finally caught up on blog reading. Yay! It makes me feel so much better when I am because I can actually comment on posts instead of flipping through quickly. It's not like I stay caught up for long, but I do try...
  • Last night I did a very brilliant thing and renewed all the books I have out from the library. I didn't even know I had done it until it told me 27 books were renewed. I had meant to renew the book that was due back that I had not had a chance to read... I now have 27 books due back on the 12th of May... I have more than 27 books out from the library, I might add.
  • The fact that I am up so early and do not have anything planned for like 12 hours would make for a perfect day to read and write reviews. I have read 15 books this month, down from previous months, but I am more than 15 reviews behind!
  • I have Life as we Knew it by Susan Beth Pfeffer out from the library right now. I had planned to read it next, but since I accidentally renewed it, I decided to hold off and read books due back before it. Why I am mentioning it is because the charming comedian actually picked it up and read some of it! I should leave books laying around more often, I guess. He has been on about dystopian-type stuff lately, anyways. He asked me if it was a quick read... It's not that he doesn't like to read, he just doesn't make it a priority, so when he takes an interest I can't help being excited by it!
Okay, so there are my rambles for the moment! What's new in everyone elses life? I am off to see if I have any Cheerios left and then I think I am going to try and get some reading done!

  3. Congrats on your milestone!

    I'm always ridiculously pleased with myself when I get my Google Reader down to zero, but it never lasts. The posts just keep on a comin', and I wouldn't have it any other way. :)

  4. Yay! Congrats on post #1000!

    I should be reviewing too, or cleaning, or reading. Instead I'm working on my Google Reader - it has gotten completely out of hand. However ... if the power goes out one more time - I'm going back to bed! Frikken' hurricane season or something :/

  5. Congrats on your 1000th post! I am at work but on my lunch hour - had to take a quick break from my reading. I think I'll request some books from the library before I get back to work.

  7. Bluestocking: No, sorry. Found out about it too late! I do read your blog, though.

    Obsessed Reader: lol, thanks!

    Memory: Thank you! I am pleased when I get things down to zero, too, but it never lasts.

    Joanne: Thank you! I have been reading, but I still haven't done any reviewing. I also should probably clean the kitchen.

    Ex Libris: Requesting library books is always a fun way to spend time!

    Chris: Well, it's funny, but it is also rather complicated matters! I am either going to have lots of late fees or bring books back unread.

  8. Thank renewing eveyrthing by accident thing has happened to me before too, except it was the librarian who did it for me. The first time I had no clue how it had happened, but the second time I figured it out!

    Congrats on reaching your milestone post!

  9. Marg: Well, it is not terrible, but it is not great either. I makes books unrenewable that weren't going to be due back for a couple more weeks anyways!

  12. I'm trying desperately to get caught up on reading blogs since I might not be around at all this weekend. We're supposed to moving into the house if everything goes right and we have a LOT of painting, patching, and cleaning to do.

    Congrats on your 1000th post! I just recently reached 300 and 301 on mine :)

  21. 1000 posts! That's great! I have about 800 to go. We'll see if I ever get there. Blame the backlog of reviews on the read-a-thon. I know I am.
