I am super sleepy today, so I thought I would come onto blogger and distract myself from my tiredness. I am now following a bunch of cannonball readers, strength in numbers!

I have been reading quite a bit more than normal, although I will have to kick it up a notch come November 1st. I am getting more into Wicked, and I am looking forward to finishing it so that I can post my first review. I left it at my boyfriend's house so I am also reading The Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing, which I have read before but I have absolutely no recollection of so I think that it still counts. I have a bit of PTSD from my divorce and messy marriage, so it is not uncommon for me to have chunks missing from my memory. Anyhoo, I started reading it yesterday morning on the skytrain and it seems like it will be a pleasurable and fast read.

Well I had better get back to work, it is almost time for lunch!

Well I just finished math homework and so I deserve a treat! I am itching to get started on this, so I am going to do some reading. The plan is to finish off this book so there is no cheating by me finishing my first book on Nov 1.

I am currently about a third of the way through "Wicked" by Gregory Maguire. I have to say so far it is not totally grabbing me, but it can be a pleasant read when I am in need of a momentary distraction. It seems promising that it will get better, we shall see.

Anyhow, I had better stop typing about it and get to the reading!

Getting Started

Well I am going to attempt to read 52 books in the next year, starting on November 1, 2009. This will be a bit of a challenge for me. I love to read but I have had difficulty making enough time for it in my busy life. Also I will be posting reviews of the books that I read, which is another challenge as I have been trying to boost up my writing for years now with no success.

All that changes on November 1!
