First up, last Sunday I posted a list of books that were all due back to the library on the 22nd. There were 16 of them and I read 10! I am very proud of myself. I had to bring the other six back, but I will get them out again. I actually have my library piles under control for the moment. I am going to try and calm down for the summer because I want to work on my own TBR pile. Unless it is something I absolutely have to read that moment, the only things I am going to request are books that I have brought back unread and books that continue series that I have on the go. It will be a summer of cleaning.
Next up, Bad Bloggers.

Okay, so I guess I read 36... There are a few others that would count, but since I am using them for other challenges, I just left them off the list.
Lastly, and not in importance, isn't my new blog pretty? The very wonderful Amy from Thrifty Reader set me up with three columns. I love it! I was finding two colums restrictive, but I just do not have any patience for that sort of stuff. I am so grateful to Amy for making things look great!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! I am happy because Chris and Debi are both back blogging. They are two of my favourite bloggers and I missed them!
