Catching Up on my Reading/Reviewing

Thanks to school testing, I was able to catch up on my reading over the past few days while working as a substitute. The teacher I was subbing for yesterday and today was assigned to “hall duty”…which basically means you sit in one of the hallways making sure kids aren’t talking in the halls about the test, kids find the correct room and aren’t goofing off in the halls, and giving the testing teachers breaks or running emergency errands for them. It’s fairly boring most of the time, so I was told to bring a book to keep myself busy when I wasn’t needed by a teacher. So I sat there in my comfy rolling chair (the teacher I was subbing for told me to bring his desk chair out into the hall), reading my books and writing out this little blog.

Yesterday, I finally finished reading my 6th book of the year, which means I’m keeping up a good pace up with 2-3 books per month. I started (and finished) 3 books in January and started (and almost finished) 3 books in February. Of course, this last “February” book took me about 3 weeks to finish…

My February Books

Back in January, I joined the Book Vixen's "Outdo Yourself Reading Challenge 2011". I pledged to read at least 25 books this year. Now I have joined the Goodreads 2011 Reading Challenge and pledged to read at least 30 books. So far, I think I’m doing well! I read three books in January, and I started three books in February but only finished two of them during the month. (I’m about 100 pages away from finishing the third “February” book.) And to match my last book post entry, I will give my opinion on the next two books I have finished reading.
