Again, this is a short and sweet month-in-review post, but this time it's because I've been up since 7 am Tuesday (I'm typing this at 2 am) and I need to sleep like it's my job. I may add to this later on today, but for now I'm going to go pass out.

Don't forget to join in on Wild Card Wednesday!



  1. Wow! Cogratulations on gaining so many followers! And 11 books is definitely way more than I read. May sounds like a great month for you. :)

  2. I'm curious about the followers. I never keep track myself because I tend to follow people anonymously. I've never know, however, if I am being anonymous if the blogger knows I'm following them or if I am well and truly anonymous . . .

    I suppose I could research it but I'm too easily distracted and I'll forget to do so before you ever read this.

  3. A walk in the Woods is one of my favorite books! Everytime I read it, I want to give it a go!

  4. Dorothy A.: Thanks! I was so surprised when I realized I had gained over 40 new followers that I checked the math again...twice. May was a good month reading-wise but in every other way it was pretty awful. LOL

    Satia: I'm not sure about how many I have that aren't using GFC. I just go by that because it gives me a decent number. There could be 800 people who follow me just by clicking on a bookmark or through e-mail and I'd never know.

    Cinnamon owl: I really want to read more of Bryson's stuff. I, too, was inspired to walk the trail after reading that book. Someday when I'm not chubby and have stopped smoking cigarettes I might just try it.
