How Much Time I Intend to Read

  • At least 2 hours per day…  I don’t have a huge amount of things going on this week, so hopefully I can block out some time.
Really looking forward to some dedicated reading.  I have way too many unfinished reading challenges sitting on my blog.  And J has been pressuring me about reading more scifi.  This is the perfect opportunity to accomplish both goals.

    Thanks Amanda!!!

    I just started reading your blog and love it! I had to join the readathon and get moving on all these books laying around. I think I have a problem.

      lol. I think “having a problem” is one of the requirements for being a book blogger. 😉 Glad you like the blog!
