Week in Review (41)

Random Thoughts

It is here! The 2011 Virtual Advent Tour for the 6th year. I hope people will join in! The website was redesigned this year and for that I must thank Alex for doing a great job. She also designed the gorgeous buttons. You can find the sign-up post here.

I have still not really been reading so far, but hopefully that will shift before the rest of the month flies by.

Challenge News

None of the few books I have read this month count for any challenges.

  1. The new Virtual Advent site is gorgeous!!!!!

    How is the experience of reading The Secret Circle? I want to go back and read the books I barely remember them!

  2. You didn't buy anything this week! Go You!! Me on the other hand...checked out several from the library and added to my Kindle!

  3. I think I'll sign up for Virtual Advent this year. There's a post that I've been meaning to write for years now. I think it's time to write it. ;-) You're still hit by your reading slump?! That's awful. I hope you find something that can hold your interest.

  4. I just signed up for the Adevnt Tour - thanks for bringing it to my attention!


  5. 236 books? TWO HUNDRED THIRTY-SIX?????? You are really killing on the book count, this year, Kelly!

    I am so not a joiner, but I keep looking at the Virtual Advent Tour and thinking, "Hmm, maybe," every year. I'm pondering.

  6. **Amy: Pretty good so far. I was amazed by just how different the books are. They changed a lot!

    **Staci: I know! Good thing, too, because I haven't read much either...

    **Vasilly: Yay! You always consider it, but then I don't think you sign up in the end...

    **bookdout: I saw! I hope you have lots of fun!

    **Bookfool: I hope you do sign-up one year. It's fun!


Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
