Abducted By Sundays in bed with...8.12.2012


I know this is getting posted rather late for this meme (hosted by Kate at midnightbookgirl) but I really have been reading all day!

I posted two weeks ago that I was starting The Land of Stories: The Wishing Spell by Chris Colfer. Well, it took me a little longer then I would have liked to finally finish it, but finish it I did!

I came home from Mass this morning and spent the entire afternoon curled up on my couch getting through the last 100 pages!

And here are some pictures showing my favorite things to do after I finish a book...


Making room for my newest novel on my "have read" book shelf in my living room! Most people may think I'm crazy if I tried to describe the feeling of satisfaction I get from this simple act, but I know my fellow avid readers will totally understand!


And I add the total page count to my 15000 page challenge for the year! I know a lot of people who signed up for the challenge are keeping track of their total page count on goodreads or their blogs or professional spreadsheets. But me, I like to keep track of mine the old fashion way! A long strip of paper going down the back of my bedroom door! You may notice my current total is only 7300, I'm very very behind! But I have a good shot at hitting 9000 by the end of the month and then I believe that will put me back in the game!

Have a great week!

I'm glad you got it finished! And you can totally catch up on your reading challenge! Hope the rest of your day is great!

I was actually surprised at how long The Land of Stories took me too. I did finish it though.

I think for us since we have piles of books adding one more to the I have read pile feels like an accomplishment that means one less to read.

Good luck onyour page challenge.

Now that I've actually separated my to read books from my read books I love putting them on my read bookshelf.

I love that you are old school and keep track of your pages by hand, that's awesome (and colorful)! I am totally new school and I will be the first to admit I rely on technology way too much.
