    I am at 31 books this year out of my goal of 100. I may up it to 150 depending on how March and April shape up school-wise.

  • Sheesh! I don't see how y'all have time for all that reading!  In the coming months, I don't know if I'll be able to finish one (its baby bird/raptor season!). 

    I finished Wicked

    Almost done w/ Stiff

    I tried the reading 2 books at once, but I don't think it works for me.  I can stand gross things, but couldn't stomach reading Stiff at work during lunchtime, so I started Wicked and read Stiff at night.
