I'm a bookworm of the highest caliber! If you see me, I'll probably be reading. There's nothing I love more than finding a good book, and then sharing it with the world!

A little behind, but that's because I elected to take a break from reading and just mess around with my bookshelves yesterday instead :). I think I can still catch up, the remainder of the weekend.

*How I'm feeling:

Amazing! I woke up feeling amazing, and it's been a good day so far. Although I didn't mark it on here (since I started it a while ago), I also finished The Book of Storms this week. So I'm getting caught up on open books. Feeling good! I hope to finish Calamity today, and Roses and Rot tomorrow. That'll make my goal of 4 books finished!

Nothing yesterday! I ended up too busy to participate, but I got some good reading done.

 

*How I'm feeling:

Pretty proud of myself! Finishing this issue of Uncanny means that I've officially read about 20 short stories this year already, which in turn means that I'm kicking my reading goal butt for the year!

Yesterday's challenge was to describe your self #insixwords on Twitter. I think this about describes me. 

 

*How I'm feeling:

Not too bad! I knew I wasn't going to get a ton of reading done this week, but if I stay on track I should at least get to the 4 book goal that I'm trying to hit. I'm pretty proud of myself.
