What Are You Reading: December 12, 2011: 12/12/11
I am officially on vacation. Spring semester doesn't start until the end of January. My first order of business after turning in my last final was to finish Hex Hall. It was well worth the wait! I now have Demonglass on hold at my library.
I am still chugging along with Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani. It's still not the fastest book ever but reading it before bed is working a lot better.
Next up is Flight by Sherman Alexie and Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby.
With the year running out, I'm starting to get concerned that I won't complete my GoodReads challenge. I set the bar at 600 books. I'm currently at 584 books, leaving me with 16 books to finish in 19 days. Since I'm not reading as many picture books with my kids, I'm worried that I won't finish.
What about you? What are you reading?
Finished Last Week:

Starry Night I liked, I love Galileo's story. :)
You got a nice and busy week! Come see my Monday too! Have a great week!

Starry Night is a good introduction to Galileo for kids.
Comment #3: Monday, December, 12, 2011 at 00:22:10
Flirting with Forever is incredibly cute! Hope you enjoy it!
Comment #4: Monday, December 12, 2011 at 18:44:02
I am so far. I just need to make the time to finish it.
Comment #5: Monday, December, 12, 2011 at 00:46:50
I have yet to read the Big Stone Gap series of Adrianna's but I hear it is good.
Comment #6: Monday, December 12, 2011 at 18:45:04
It is very slow but oddly compelling.
Comment #7: Monday, December, 12, 2011 at 08:03:14
Blackout caught my attention...hope you enjoy your reading this week.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #8: Monday, December 12, 2011 at 18:48:20
Blackout is a chunkster. I'm only reading a few pages a night. But they're very good pages!
Comment #9: Monday, December, 12, 2011 at 08:32:08
You have quite a mix of stuff on your list! Corduroy and other Don Freeman books, Dandelion in particular, were some of my favorites growing up!
Comment #10: Monday, December 12, 2011 at 18:50:38
I haven't read Dandelion. I will add it to my wishlist.
Comment #11: Monday, December, 12, 2011 at 09:37:47
We have a copy of Adventures of Rusty & Ginger Fox and my son LOVES it! He reads it at least once a week! Looks like you have an awesome week ahead of you! Happy Reading!

Isn't it great when a book captivates a child?
Comment #13: Monday, December, 12, 2011 at 09:57:17
My kids finish school on Friday so I have a few more days before they are all home.
Have a great holiday break.
Comment #14: Monday, December 12, 2011 at 18:56:35
My kids have this week and half of next week before they are off.
Comment #15: Monday, December, 12, 2011 at 12:13:01
I am happy to have reached my goal of 180 books, your numbers will always continue to amaze me.
Have a wonderful week!!
Comment #16: Monday, December 12, 2011 at 18:58:21
180 books is impressive. I've had many years where I haven't cleared 100.
Comment #17: Monday, December, 12, 2011 at 14:35:21
I have faith you can reach your goal. You could try novellas or Christmas books like The Christmas List or the ones written by romance writers, they tend to read really fast. Enjoy your vacation!
Comment #18: Monday, December 12, 2011 at 19:00:43
I don't think I'd have much luck with romances, even though they're short.
Comment #19: Monday, December, 12, 2011 at 16:32:46
Maybe I should've counted the books I read with my kids as well - I might have made my goal then!
Comment #20: Monday, December 12, 2011 at 19:01:36
I only count them on the first read. But since I spent about half my time reading to my kids, I figured I should count those books.
Comment #21: Monday, December, 12, 2011 at 18:30:00
You've read a lot last week! Hex Hall Sounds really good. Nice selection!
Comment #22: Monday, December 12, 2011 at 19:13:38
Hex Hall is really good.
Comment #23: Monday, December, 12, 2011 at 20:02:02
600 is a lot of books! Even if you don't reach it, you sure got through a ton this year :-)
Comment #24: Monday, December 12, 2011 at 19:14:00
That's true. Thanks.
