I didn't think I had time to read. I'm watching less TV and spending less time on my computer. I've got time.


You're welcome, Dawn :) Just wish I didn't have to find out the hard way. That was so not fun! Oh well. Maybe that was God's way of telling me to write shorter reviews hehe...as you can see I was in a bit of a writing mood this week :p

Having the flu can make for some good bed time for reading books. It's God's way of telling me to turn off the TV and computer. But as you can tell if you are reading this, sometimes I don't listen to God. What book do I read for that?

P.S. Kelly--Thanks for the info about the Tumblr/Word mess


I finished a big one for week two. I think for the fourth book I need something lighter.


Word of warning to Tumblr users...do NOT write up your reviews in Word and then copy/paste them to Tumblr! I just spent 20 minutes trying to format and fix all the spacing that I lost in the copy/paste! Ugh! Lesson learned :p

And to answer your question Mark, because I apparently ignored it earlier, my summer has been AWESOME! Fortunately, the best is yet to come, as I have Journey and Tom Petty tickets waiting to be used! WOOHOO!!! But I have already been on my summer road trip, and had PLENTY of sunshine and sweet tea...although us southerners can never get enough of either right? :) I must get to the beach soon though! It's calling me! I can hear it! :p


Oh, yeah - I'm excited about the Monday Mashup! Can't wait to see it!


This is good for me. I normally like to take my time reading so that I can get the full effect of the story; however, this is almost competitive. I just finished two novels in less than 3 three days!* I've been wanting to do that forever! So thanks for the challenge, Mark.

* Note: I'm updating my list tomorrow with the second book. I'm tired.


Well, I guess I'm not in this for the win. I have finished one and part of one. I also started a week late, apparently, so one of the "two" books probably could have counted. I actually started reading a second book that is non-fiction at the same time that is rather easier reading. The list I put up was my plan rather than finished reading. That's where my confusion was, also on the dates. I missed something somehow.


I can't wait to finally get started on Treasure Island! I bought it nearly a year ago and I had been reading "Gone With The Wind" then had "Les Miserables" lined up afterwards, so I never cracked it open.

I decided to put down Les Miz for a while. Darn epic novels! Darn me for wanting to always read epic novels. Lol.


Summer always brings back memories of the Summer Reading Clubs at the local library in Michigan when I was a kid... and I would actually walk or ride my bike to get books to read! Guess that's why I still read the most during the summer, even though my schedule's about the same year-round.
So far... (hey, it's not even officially summer until tomorrow!) I finished one big book on the flight back from CA and have 2 others that I'm trying to read simultaneously... one for fun and one for edumakayshunal perpusses.


I did so good this week!!!! I read two books already, and found a third that is just small enough for me to finish before today is over :) Yay me!


Hey Trisha - glad you're enjoying it. We're going until August 20th, so there's plenty of time to read more!

Trisha R

I'm VERY excited about your Monday Mashup...how cool is that! I'm almost finished with my 5th book...a record for me, I think.

I'm really enjoying going through everyone's reading blog posts...thanks for heading this up! What is our end date on the reading group? I think I'm going to have to find some more books to read!

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
