It's the Island Life | Weekly Snapshot

By the time this post is published, we will all be back home, but right this moment, as I type this up, we are enjoying our last day at Daufuskie, a secluded island near Hilton Head, SC and Savannah, GA. We were lucky to score a cottage (without having to break the bank) with front-row access to the beach, something that has always been on my bucket list and that I was thrilled to cross off.  This week has been very refreshing and just what I needed - a getaway, a break from it all, a retreat with family with no thoughts of work, to-do lists, and chores getting in the way. The island sure runs on its own time. The streetlights aren't turned ON at night to avoid attracting turtles too far from their ideal nesting place.

Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge (2010)



Now this is a challenge that I can easily do. Most of the books I read are borrowed from the library. Funnily though, I am also planning to clear off my shelves next year. So it's going to be interesting to see how the two compete with each other.

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

Challenge Guidelines:
1. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, YA, Young Reader – any book as long as it is checked out from the library count.
2. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.
3. Crossovers from other reading challenges count.
4. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.

There are 4 levels to sign-up at, and I am going for the Just My Size level, and read 50 library books, though I hope to read up to 75 books from the library.

If you read a lot of books from the library, like I do, or would like to read more from the library, sign-up here.

My final tally:


37 / 50 books. 74% done!
