Mad Rush to the End of the Month

I have so many books to read before the end of the month I will probably go cross-eyed! I will be giving up memes this week to try to not spend so much time on the computer! I also want to thank the bloggers who gave me awards in the last 2 weeks - I promise - in June I will get them posted!
I also have some pictures of the progression of my reading room to post - and the new deck my sweetie is building for me beside it! In addition - new pictures of my son from today which we spent at Great America. I hope to get those up soon so that Grandma Karol can see them (Hi Mom!)

Ok - books for this week that I need to read!
Why Shoot a Butler? - Georgette Heyer (almost finished)
What the Dead Know - Laura Lippman (1/2 way through)
Thimble Summer - Elizabeth Enright (1/2 way through)
The City of Ember - Jean DuPrau - listening to this one - on chapter 5
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - listening to this one also - not sure what chapter
A Girl's Guide to Modern European Philosophy - Charlotte Grieg - Just started - seems good so far!

Books to start and finish before month end:
Frederica - Georgette Heyer
A Convenient Marriage - Georgette Heyer
Night Watchman - Mark Mynheir (There will be a giveaway with this one)
Annie's Ghosts - Steve Luxenberg
Who Made You a Princess? - Shelly Adina
The Girl Who Stopped Swimming - Joshilyn Jackson

And - I am fighting a problem with my eyes and have to schedule an appointment with an opthamologist (possibly because of an underlying condition that I have - Wegener's Granulomatosa) So that is not helping my reading any.

So, if I am not posting much this week - picture me curled up in a comfy chair - in my new reading room -Sleeping - Reading!

I think the whole purpose of this post was to brag about your new reading room. Just kidding!

That's a heck of a list to complete. I hope you do get a chance to sleep but . . . .
Good luck with it all. Sounds like some really good books though.

Jess said...

That is a lot of reading -- good luck!

Mad Rush! Yes indeed.

I see that you are listening to Harry Potter. I am actually thinking of starting a Harry Potter challenge for myself. I read a few of the books a while back and really liked them and this was before my reading kick that I am in now. I am wondering if I will like and appreciate them more this time around.
