My second annual Christmas in July event starts Friday over at The Christmas Spirit. A whole month of Christmas fun in the middle of summer. Hey, maybe it will cool us down! I'm also looking for people who might like to write guest posts. Click the button for full details. Hope to see you there!
It's time to sign up for the High Summer Read-a-Thon. It runs from Monday, July 25 through Sunday, July 31. For full details and to sign up, click the button. Would love for you to join me!
TuesBookTalk Read Alongs group (on Goodreads and Twitter) will be reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson in July. Discussion will begin on July 12. For details about the group, go HERE. For the reading schedule, go HERE. As always, the more the merrier. =O)
I am currently reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, The Widow of the South by Robert Hicks, Dante's Journey by JC Marino, and Johnny One-Eye by Jerome Charyn, which I'm reviewing for Tribute Books on Wednesday. Also starting To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf for the read along with Wallace at Unputdownables. Still trying to locate Roots by Alex Haley so I can join in on the read along with Laura at Book Snob (yes, most of my books are STILL in boxes).
I am still so behind on review books and I'm not dedicating enough time to my writing. Plus, I'm steadily looking for a job I can do from home and considering doing Camp NaNoWriMo in July or August. The latter is still on the decision scales. So I'm really going to be making a concerted effort to start limiting my time online. Sort of like a time limit. Allow myself a certain amount of time a day to get online stuff done and once the time is up, I'm off. We'll see how it goes.
