Progress Report:

Yay!! I finished my first book…and seriously, what an amazing book it was!! This one will definitely be in my top ten reads of the year!! Thank you so much Amanda for recommending this one to me πŸ˜€ I’m getting ready to start on a small collection of poetry now by Ellen Kennedy called Sometimes My Heart Pushes My Ribs. This one was recommended to me by Bookfool! And then from there, has decided that I’ll be reading Rose by Jeff smith and illustrated by the wonderful Charles Vess. That one was a gift from my lovely friend Debi! So I’ll probably just update again after I’ve finished those two quick reads.

I think it’s going to be lunch time soon too…I’ll probably be eating mini-tacos for lunch :p You know the little cheap ass frozen ones you get at the grocery with fake meat and cheese in them that probably poison your insides? Yeah, those :p Hey, it’s the readathon…I’m allowed to eat bad and pig out :p

As for book reviews, I’m going to just post several mini reviews in the next few days…I won’t be doing any book reviews today!! Ok…I’m off to visit some other blogs and then get back to reading!! Hope everyone is having a great time!! I also wanted to thank everyone that has stopped by to leave comments!! Please know that even though I haven’t responded to comments today, I’ve read each and every one and they all put such a big smile on my face πŸ˜€ I love you guys!!!
