Today is October 30th. I have read 25 books this year, and have 10 more that I have begun, and have yet to finish. my goal for this year was 40 same as last year.. I am very proud to say that I am doing much better this year then last, but not by much. So many distractions... I almost wish that "Sandy" had taken out my job, or made it difficult to get to work just so that I could stay home and read!
