I'm a reader.

One look at my blog and you know I'm a reader.

One look at my pinterest and you know I'm a reader who likes batman and easy crafts for my house and really wants to travel more.

One look at my instagram and you know I'm a reader who shamelessly takes pictures of my dogs and cat (seldom myself) and loves antiques.

It is definitely summer-time here in the Midwest. I've been spending a lot of reading time outside enjoying the sunshine (and the shade!)

I just finished my 18th book for this year (to follow what I've been reading as the year goes on, you can go here: EVERYTHING I'VE READ SO FAR. I can honestly say I haven't read anything and been super duper in love with it yet. 22 more books to go! That's 22 more chances for my socks to be wow-ed off. Good luck, books.

Luckily for me, I have a list a mile long of things I want to read this summer:

And I just bought this for my kindle, which is going to be what I start tonight after bookclub (or before my lunch date)

I'm hoping to love them!

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

I've never done a read-a-thon before!

Believe it or not, I am new to the whole blogging thing. (As you can tell, from all of the empty seats in the audience.)

I'm enjoying reading - I'm definitely enjoying participating in the Mixing it Up Challenge over at http://musingsofabookshopgirl.blogspot.com/ It's encouraged me to read outside of my regular reading zones and even helped me get un-lazy with my Sookie Stackhouse series that's been gathering some dust. Book club has chosen some books I would NEVER choose on my own accord.

Plus, the dates of this read-a-thon (July 9-11) falls during the week, which is when I'm off work, so I will actually get some reading done!
