100 book follow up

So, I didn't make it. I think I was like 5 books shy of 100. But, I think I read about 300 books to my girls this past year, so I am not terribly upset that I didn't make it. So, this year I am just going to keep track of the books I read and not try to make a goal for myself. I really need to finish this pesky dissertation!

Gift Cards

Why is it that once I have gift cards to book stores, I can never figure out what to get? I have no problems when I am paying for the books myself! After HOURS of thought, I think I have figured out two books I am going to buy today.

Maybe not finishing

I am going to keep reading as much as possible, but that will probably be pretty limited. I really need to finish my dissertation! I only have 24 books left for the year, but I honestly don't know if I can make it. Someday I will have more free time again. Someday.
