Just another WordPress.com weblog

20 down, 1480 to go

I have read 9 books(well actually quite a bit more than that, but I’m not counting books that I had already read and reread again) since my last report. There were 6 nonfiction and 3 fiction books.  I read Permission Slips by Sherri Shepherd. I don’t watch tv so I didn’t know a lot about her before picking up this book.  I enjoy reading about other people’s lives andlearning  how they deal with adversity. This book was humorous and I enjoyed reading it.  Along those lines, Staying True  by Jenny Sanford was an interesting read about the ways women fool themselves and change themselves while in relationships. It was very thought-provoking for me.

Still looking into ways to record what I’ve read. Not sure if I want to categorize them by author, type, when read, or some other way. Would like to have some sort of visual to show how close I am to my goal – need to look into that also. I’ve seen things I like on other blogs and I’m sure if I look around I can find out how to do it. Just one more thing to add to my “someday” list.

Time Flies

Haven’t been able to find time  make time to put together any posts lately. Another library near us had a sale and I ended up getting a bunch of books. Some of the books I have already read but enjoy rereading, so I got my own copies. The last time we moved I got rid of a lot of books and I’m beginning to rebuild my collection.

I have been doing a lot of reading and  also trying to work in the garden. When I do take time to be on the computer,  I have been reading blogs, doing puzzle games and mindlessly clicking on all kinds of things.

Will once again try to get myself together and report on some of my goals in the next couple of days.

UGH!

 I had another post but it appears to have disappeared. Not really sure what happened to it. I’m not very computer-literate and need to learn more about the how-tos of blogging.

I am trying to get all my quarterly reports together so I can update my savings goal progress.

Also need to update my reading list.  Will try to get to that in a day or two.
