Happy Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday!!!  Time for a weekly update!



Well, it's been kind of a sucky week for me.  I'm trying to get back in the swing of things with blogging, and reading, and online book clubs, but there have been a whole bunch of setbacks this week.

First, I haven't been able to finish any books that I've been reading.  I mean, admittedly I'm reading 4 books at once, but still!  One is only 95 pages long, so I should be done! I've been setting aside time to read, but it's still not enough.  *Sigh*  I need a vacation.

Second, I was on a roll with the whole blogging thing.  I mean, I am slowly getting back in the game, and I'm trying to post regularly, but one thing that I used to post on all the time was the Feature and Follow Friday blog hop (hosted by parajunkee and alison can read), but that doesn't seem to be happening anymore!  I mean what happened?!  Are they done with that now and I missed it, or is it just a hiatus?  If they're done with it, I'm going to have to find another blog hop.  I know there are others but I can't remember what they're called or who's hosting them.  If anyone out there has any ideas......help please!

And speaking of things going bye-bye, Shelfari's going away!  I guess Amazon decided it was no longer worth the effort, so they're "merging" Goodreads and Shelfari together.  Translation: Shelfari is getting kicked to the curb and we have two months to pack up all of our stuff and move elsewhere.  
I'm so bummed out.  Shelfari was my first home away from home!  I loved the community, and the shelves, and the book reviews.  And now it's going away!  I just want to curl up and be sad for a little while.....

Well, on the plus side, I'm going to a real live book club tomorrow!  There's a really nice book discussion group at the local library going on every 3rd Tuesday afternoon.  I'm the only one under 50 who attends, but they spend the entire hour just talking about books, and I love it!  I'm really looking forward to this one too; this month's BOTM is People Of The Book, which should make for a an excellent discussion.

Anywhoo, here's my goal for this week:  finish at least two of the books I'm currently working on, update Goodreads, and find a new blog hop.  Because I'm lazy, if you want to see what I'm reading, look to the side bar on the right and you'll see the Goodreads currently reading widget.

Well, that's it.  I'm going to go read now.  Happy reading everybody!

  1. Hi Lisa! I don't know what's going on with feature & follow Friday either, but I've started doing Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice. I'm enjoying that and it's a nice change of pace anyway. I hope you have a better reading week this week!
