Another milestone...my fiction books in my home library topped 2000 this weekend! I still can't believe sometimes that I have so many books (with non-fiction, etc., I have 3000+)! Right now, I only have my fiction cataloged so I can't wait to get them all listed so I can get an exact count. Then I might just have to faint!
Christmas in July is in full swing over at The Christmas Spirit. If you feel in the mood for a little Christmas cheer on these hot days, why not stop by and visit. It's all in fun and if you're embarassed, you don't have to tell anyone. Your secret is safe with me!
Just a reminder about the High Summer Read-a-Thon at the end of the month. Just wanted to clarify that it is a week long event, but you do not have to participate the entire week. I created my read-a-thons in the week long format so that people who work through the week can do the weekend and people who work weekends can join in during the week. If you would like to find out more and/or sign up, go HERE. Would love to have you!
We begin our discussion of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson on #TuesBookTalk tomorrow night on Twitter (10:30pm EST). If you can't join us there, you can share your thoughts over in the discussion forum on Goodreads HERE. We are discussing Prologue and Part I of the book this first week.
I'm not going to talk about what I'm reading since I'm doing the Once Upon a Read-a-Thon this week and I've already listed what I'm reading there.
Anything new with you since last week?
