Refreshed from a road trip | Weekly Snapshot

I'm getting an extremely late start to this post. After the long drive yesterday back home and then a late evening meetup with our neighbors, I was out of juice very fast and needed to crash. And what does Sunday morning mean after a busy week? Tis a day full of chores. Ugh.  Life We spent this past week in Boston with my brother-in-law and his wife. We all got the break we needed - we did some shopping, watched lots of TV, and enjoyed lots of family time. I started writing this post on our drive back but didn't get to schedule in advance. We opted to drive the 13-hour route so although it made for some very long days, it felt good to get out of the house and enjoy a road trip. The weather cooperated all the days in all the places we were in those days so that was a plus.  As always after a long vacation, we have come back to a lot to do. I have so much to catch up with and need to do some of that today as there's just as much to do on the work front from tomorrow.  Renovat

100+ Reading Challenge (2010)

2010 Reading Challenge: 100+ Reading Challenge

Alright, so obviously this is the first challenge I would jump in for. Actually, I am hoping to hit 144, which makes a nice number, since it translates to 12 books a month (Thanks to Crystal @ Goodreads for spotting this). This will be a big challenge for me, but I should be able to cross 100. This year, with just the half year of reading and loads of grad work, I was able to read 50.

This challenge is being hosted by J. Kaye @ J. Kaye's Book Blog.

Challenge Guidelines:
1. The goal is to read 100 or more books.
2. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Manga, Graphic Novels, Library books, Novellas, Young Reader, Nonfiction – as long as the book has an ISBN or equivalent or can be purchased as such, the book counts.
What doesn't count: Individual short stories or individual books in the Bible.
4. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.
5. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010. Books started before the 1st do not count.

So, did you join this challenge? If not, sign-up here.

My final tally:


79 / 100 books. 79% done!
