I wasn't able to get here on Friday & I wanted to thank Amy of My Friend Amy for a wonderful BBAW 2010. I thought the theme, A Treasure Chest of Infinite Books & Infinite Blogs was awesome. Each day was a whirlwind of blog visiting, posting, commenting & meeting new bloggers. The week was so much fun! I admit I was worn out, just completely exhausted by Thursday evening. I didn't have the chance to visit all of the blogs I hoped too or read all of the interviews I wanted too but I haven't given up yet & hope to visit some more new blogs this week. It was a great week for bonding with fellow bloggers, learning about new books ad authors & celebrating our wonderful community. Nicole, Jennifer, Melissa, Bella Danielle & Monica. thank you, too, for helping to make BBAW 2010 amazing & totally fun!
I didn't get much reading done this week & reviews? fuggedaboutit! I've been terrible about writing my reviews, anyway, for several moths. I'm like a little kid when I sit down to write a review...any little thing distracts me & drags my attention away from the review. A house filled with cats offers plenty of distractions, especially when one is only 6 months!! I decided to read up on writing reviews & do a little research to focus myself. I have a stack of books to review & great notes. It isn't as if I'm going to be graded on the reviews? Right?! lolol The really perverse thing is once I sit down & start writing them, after a couple of paragraphs I really enjoy it. It's starting the review, choosing a direction that drives me a little crazy. Yep, I'm a real "pita" to myself! lol Of course my plan for this week is to work on & finish several of those reviews I'm dragging out! I'm almost finished reading The Girl Who Played with Fire! I have a few chapters left. Holy Cow! What a book, it's great! I'm going to slow down some of my reading for a bit, I think, so I can focus on Infinite Jest. This is an amazing book! I'd love to sit & just read it for days on end. Unfortunately, that isn't really possible. I'm just about halfway through the book now. I'm going to try to read Infinite Jest as well as books for the R.I.P. Challenge & not much else for the next few weeks & see how it works out. If I can really limit myself like this & be disciplined might be another story, I'll see!
I hope you all are having a nice weekend!
