22 on 22 Read-a-Thon

Photobucket

First of all, a big thank you to dear Eric @ Frodo’s Blog, who alerted me to this 22 on 22 Read-a-thon.

Not sure if I have much time to read this week, although work is not busy as it was lately. Moreover with some travelling on the weekend I may be able to get some reading done while in the car. I do need to catch up, as currently I am behind my goal of 150 books. With only 2.5 months left I am only at 110 books. Also it seems a good idea to clear up the many Ballycumbers* that I have lying around.

My Reading List:

Big Breasts and Wide Hips
Big Breasts and Wide Hips (started this in Dewey)

Wine drinking for inspired thinking
Wine Drinking for Inspired Thinking

dragon rider
Dragon Rider

Wall to wall
Wall to Wall: From Beijing to Berlin by Rail

Day 3 Mini-Challenges –
On my very long wishlist one book I’m eagerly waiting for is
demons are forever

Demons Are Forever is book 3 of the Confessions of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom. Things got really exciting in book 2, so I can’t wait to find out what happen!

Retired after marrying her demon-slayer partner and having a child, Kate Conner, aka Buffy the Vampire Slayer, moves with her family to a safe town to settle down and lead a normal life. Her husband is killed in a car accident and she remarries, has another child, and settles into a happy family life. Of course, when you know about demons and the realities of the dark side, nothing could be that simple. Daughter Allie becomes aware of her legacy when kidnapped. Saved by her mother, the teen now wants to join the hunters. Eddie, Kate’s elderly demon-hunting mentor, lives with the family as a sort of adopted grandfather. David Long, an attractive teacher at Allie’s school, may or may not actually be Kate’s beloved first husband. Stuart Conner, Kate’s ambitious second husband, is running for San Diablo County Attorney, blissfully unaware of his wife’s alter ego. Now her not quite three-year-old son Timmy’s playdates are being interrupted by demons trying to revive a long-imprisoned Mater demon by the name of Andramelech. What’s a mom to do?

Feelings: It’s my day off so was able to do a bit more reading, though still not as much as I’d like. Was able to finish BBWH, which is great as I honestly was starting to get bored with this long novel. Listened to Dragon Rider while doing laundry. Brandon Fraser is a great reader (besides being a handsome actor <3)!

Feelings: Was riding in a car for a trip a good part of the day, but didn’t get as much reading done as I’ve hope, because I was busy co-piloting: selecting music, checking GPS, as well as sending emails, checking my game, checking BookCrossing. Most certainly a problem when phones get too smart. But am glad to at least finish off another book.
