Harry Potter, Read-a-Long

I just signed up for my first Read-a-Long!

I’ve seen a lot of people participate in these all over the blog-o-sphere, but I’ve never joined in mainly because the books involved have never appealed to me all that much. That changed tonight when I saw the Harry Potter Read-a-Long come through my Google Reader!! Hosted by Pretty Deadly Reviews it starts tomorrow! The seven books are going to be read in order, with each book getting 2 weeks to read. Hop on over and join in if this interests you as much as it does me 🙂

P.S. – There’s a super duper awesome Potter-themed prize at stake here people! Check it out here!!!

Sunday Wrap-Up

Sunday Wrap-Up, July 31, 2011

Another week gone by. Tomorrow is the first of August! Crazy! And the last half of the year is always the hardest for us financially. We have 9 birthdays between August and October, our car insurance, home insurance and real estate taxes all come due between October and December. Oh and then let’s not forget the 14 people we have to buy Christmas gifts for. Ahhh. It’s definitely not my favorite half of the year. But that really has nothing to do with the topic of my blog 🙂

I had a pretty good week, I did some great reading – I had hit a slump, I hope I’m out of it now. Here’s what happened here at the blog:

  • I shared my mailbox … I received 4 books and have already read 2 of them! Go me!
  • I proved to everyone that I have a drug habit … with my drug of choice being books 🙂

And I posted three reviews:

Like I said earlier, I hope I’m out of my slump, because I’m reading up a storm …. I guess it’s probably all in the books that I’m choosing right now, but it definitely feels good to want to read again now!

Hope everyone has a great week 🙂
