Another Lovely Friday Blogging Day!

Happy Friday everyone! It's the first day of Fall, and it's beginning to feel a little like Fall around here, and that always puts me in a good mood! And, unlike my very busy weekend last week (niece got married), this weekend should be nice and relaxing. Just have to post a picture of my kids at the wedding:

The only boy is my son, and my daughter is to the left of him. The rest are all nieces! The one on the far left is carrying my first grand niece or nephew!

So, for some weekly Friday fun:

This week Ginger wants to know:

Reading Challenges: Did you sign up for any this year? How has your progression been?

I only signed up for one challenge. I have so much "obligated reading" that I really didn't want to tie myself down too much with things I HAVE to read for a challenge, since I want to have some time to read for myself. The challenge I signed up for was pretty easy, I read long books all the time!

I've read 43 books so far this year that are over 350 pages. Here's a link to my 350 Page Book Challenge Page.

This challenge is hosted by What's Your Story Book Reviews.

I didn't really set a goal, but I think 43 is pretty good. I've read 134 books total so far, so almost 1/3 of the books I've read this year have been over 350 pages.





This week Alison and Parajunkee want to know:


Q. Do you have a favorite series that you read over and over again? Tell us a bit about it and why you keep on revisiting it?

I'm not a big re-reader. Many series, I don't even finish. I've read Harry Potter twice. I loved reading it the second time because I could read all seven books one right after the other. It's a different experience when you do it that way. I may read it again some day, but it won't be soon. The only other series I would ever consider reading again is The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. I will probably have to read those again some day.


Happy Fall and Happy Reading everyone! I hope you have a great weekend, and stop by again soon.

  1. Great wedding picture. Unlike you, I like to read some books over. To me, it's fun to know what's going to happen and be able to look forward to it. Also, it's easier to get through the scary or sad parts when you know it will get better.

  2. Great picture! I love the color! I generally don't re-read much anymore. I can't believe I haven't read The Sisterhood series yet!

  4. Your daughter, son, and nieces look gorgeous! Congrats on getting a new grandniece or nephew. I have 9 of them and I love them. (I know it's hard to believe that I have 9, but I'm the youngest of a very large family so many of my nieces and nephews are near my age.)

    Ha ha! I understand what you mean about "obligated reading." I signed up for the 2011 DAC thinking it would be a breeze to do. I discovered I didn't like being dictated to what I could/couldn't read.

  11. What a handsome family. You must be so proud. I take it that your neice isn't a teacher...there's no way a teacher would get married in September! Ha!

    I am very impressed by your Reading Challenge and your total books read.

    I like Reading Challenges...they keep me on track and focused.
