just 'fessin' up

Figured I might as well just confess...yes, I did join Katrina's Spring Reading Thing '08. No, I probably shouldn't have...I'm a little over-extended as is ;) But how could I not...this was the very first challenge I ever joined. Hard to believe that was only one year ago! But I kept my list short, so maybe, just maybe, I'll actually finish. And I put on books that I've really, really, really been wanting to read, but haven't got to because they aren't on any other challenge lists.

Will probably be out of the loop for a while. We're heading to Rich's Mom's early tomorrow afternoon for the weekend. Still need to pack, make a coffeecake, some Easter cupcakes, and get through a big day's worth of school today. But the good news is a total of almost 12 hours of reading time in the car. (Usually I work on "school stuff" during long car rides, but I decided I deserved a break this time. Okay, maybe I don't deserve a break, but I'm just so anxious to get started on my Once Upon a Time II reading!)

Hope everyone has a beautiful, joyous weekend!

Oh, how I wish I could still read in the car like I did when I was younger. I get horribly car sick if I try.

Have a great weekend!

Give my love to Joyce, please, Debi. I've thought about her a lot, how she's doing. I hope you guys have a great visit. Easter egg hunt, anyone?

Look at you, you reading machine and your challenges :) I thought about joining this one, but I think I'll still stick with just Annie's for now. Boy, you've got a ton to do before your trip, but I know you'll get it done. Enjoy your time away and the reading time :)

Of course you're joining in......it's a reading challenge after all! And short is the way to go, I did that last time and should have stuck to it this time.

So I ahve contacted A&Es "Intervention" and they don't take reading challenge addicts! Seriously, I think it's great that you join all of these challenges and obviously enjoy them. Have fun getting all of that reading time in in the car!

Have a nice break and a nice time reading. I'm feeling the pinch on some of my challenges, but the point is for fun, right? So you will be just fine!
