Okay, so I’m only a few days late. It’s not like I’ve been super busy, just really lazy is more accurate. There were even a couple of nights last week when I didn’t even turn the computer on. And I really know better than that because then my Google Reader gets out of hand and I hate being tempted to push that nasty “Mark All as Read” button. I usually don’t push it unless it’s really out of hand, like when I get back from a vacation.
Anyway, visually here’s what I read in January, clicking on the image will take you to my review:
Impressive, I know. I’m just not reading a whole lot at a time … just little snippets here and there. It definitely makes finishing a book in a timely manner very difficult.
And for a quick breakdown of the numbers:
*Books Read: 3
*Pages Read: 1,326
*Best Book: Damage by John Lescroart
*Books Acquired: 9
*Books Sent to New Homes: 6
That wraps up my reviews for January. I’m also going to start wrapping up my non-review posts this year.
- I broke down my 2011 reading with lots of nifty charts and graphs.
- I shared something very personal going on with my pregnancy. I have come to terms with what is discussed in this post, I am no longer stressing about it. What happens, happens.
- I had two rambling posts. You can find them here and here.
- My furbaby, Buster, turned 3 this year … check out just a small sampling of the cutest pictures I have of him!
- I had two Mailbox Monday posts … one spotlighted a book I was super excited to get and the other is the next book in a series that I’m enjoying.
So, I’m not really sure what will be coming up this week on the blog yet. I don’t have a Mailbox Monday post for this week, no books came in. (Not like that’s such a terrible thing) I am about 150 pages from finishing the book I’m currently reading, Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow. I hope to get that finished up and a review posted. I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow, I’m sure I will post something about what I find out, even though nothing exciting is scheduled for this appointment … just a normal check-up.
I finally got the nursery furniture ordered and am starting to really think about how I want to decorate. I have known for some time that I want a sports theme, and I think I’m going to put some Fatheads on the walls for decorations rather than having to paint. I’m weird, I know. But I’m really not impressed by the decorations I’ve seen in stores. I know this will sound silly, but they all seem so babyish. I have yet to find a sports theme without monkeys or bears or something silly on them. I’m just not into that. So I figure I can just decorate with Fatheads and they will grow with G. My family thinks I’m nuts, but my husband is all for it! Haha!
Well I think that’s about all I’ve got for right now. I hope everyone has a good up-coming week. I will be busy at work, so who knows how much reading I will really get done. And I still need to get to working on my books for the carpet guys, I still don’t know where I’m going to put them all temporarily! Ughhhh.

I love Harlan Coben’s books even though it has been awhile since I recently finished one. Just thinking about it though makes me want to go put one on hold at the library 🙂 It sounds like you have a lot going on with preparing for the baby…good luck getting everything ready! And I like the fathead idea myself 🙂
