Welcome to my little world!

This is just a little hodge podge of my life, some bits & pieces of me.:)

Saturday thoughts...

Well I finished Water for Elephants and I did like the book although as I said I didn't like some of the content and language but I'm sure that made it be more true to life.
I am now reading a book that I got on the B&N Daily Deal - Bring on the Blessings by Beverly Jenkins. I haven't gotten very far into it yet to say if I will like it, so far it's o.k.. I really want to acquire The Hunger Games books and get started on them soon so then I can see the movie. I don't like to see a movie before I've read the book.

I didn't feel well yesterday so didn't get my Friday Fill-Ins posted and will probably skip them next week too because I am going to a Scrapbook retreat for the weekend - really looking forward to that!

I have to get moving and get some housework accomplished today although it is hard to do anything because Rick is working on our bathroom remodel and the house is pretty much covered with dust and strung out but I'll do what I can.

I am currently on book #13 for this year. I had set myself a goal of 15 but I realized pretty quickly that I was going to pass that fast so I reset my goal to 25 books for this year but it is only March and I'm almost half way to that goal so I may have to reset again! I haven't read this much in a year probably ever!
Right now I am reading Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, it's kind of raunchy so far, a good story but I don't care for some of the content, I prefer to read cleaner novels. I realize why it has to be like this though to keep it real - it is the circus and I guess the circus crowd is like that in reality. It is an interesting story overall so far. I'll update when I'm finished.
