Thankfully Reading Weekend

I love to sign up for challenges. It's a little bit of a bad habit, because I don't always pay attention to the deadlines, and I often get sidetracked by some other book that beckoned to be from the bookshelves that I get to check off NOWHERE on a challenge. Bad, bad book browsing. I get so excited by my booklist and then quickly veer off the path by some other shiny, new thing. I need to work on my two-year-old like attention span.

I've got some deadlines coming up soon, namely, Book Awards III and DystopYA, that I have not made a good faith effort to finish up by their prospective dates. So, when I heard about the Thankfully Reading Weekend that the ladies at Book Blog Social Club came up with, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to make good on my commitments. And I was planning to hack away at these goals anyway, so why not do so with several others at the same time? =)

So, for this upcoming holiday weekend, I'm going to finish 3 books (The Blind Assassin, Gilead, and The Hours) for the Book Awards Challenge, and hopefully make some serious headway on DystopYA as well. If you'd also like to participate, sign up here.

Oooh shiny thiiiings....I too, am enamoured by them (even if it is some silly hair clip at a mall kiosk). I've even managed to trip over my husband being gravitated to one.
