Finished another book.

I just finished Changling. It's about a Werecat. The last book in the trilogy is Darkling, about a vampire. One of my screen names was Darkling. Should be a fun read if it's anything like the first two.

Next book

I finished my Inkheart book and I'm going to read Changling next. It's a shorter book than the last two I read so hopefully I'll get to catch up. This will be book number 5 I think.

I was at a birthday party when out of the blue a friend started talking about Ender's Game. For once I could say, "I just read that."

I was at the library again today to pick up Green Mars for my boyfriend. He's already read Red Mars out of his own collection and was happy to get the sequel in the trilogy. I already checked out Blue Mars so he's got 2 books to read before he runs dry again. He's a fast reader. I was going to read Red Mars, but I already have five or six books lined up to read.

Book Goal Title #2

Happy to report I finished my second book called Witchling. I'll keep my eyes open for the sequel that is called Changeling. It was a fun read but on the R-rated side. I'm halfway through Druids as well. I picked up Red Mars and Blue Mars at the library but when I got home my boyfriend told me there was a book in the middle called Green Mars, so I'll look for that while I'm reading Red Mars. He just finished his own copy of Red Mars only to find out a page was ripped out just before the end. So I got the library copy so he could read what he missed.

Reading Goal

I read some tips from other readers that managed to read 100 books a year. First off, they are in the process of reading more than one book at a time. Which makes sense. You can have a book near anywhere you tend to sit, so by the bed, by the couch, and in the bathrooms, and in the car. You spend more time reading instead of hunting for the book. So I'm down with that.

I've also started reading with a bookmark. I don't need it all the time, but when the TV is on or people are talking, I can put it under each line I'm reading and then find my place a lot quicker if I have to look up and talk to someone.

Right now I'm in the middle of reading Druids. And I have Coyote Waits by Tony Hillerman sitting by my computer so I can read that when I get a chance.

I also want to go to the library soon. I'd like to read Twilight and Inkheart so I can at least get on the waiting list for those.

43things helps me to keep track

I updated my goal list on 43things.
I realized how very many goals I have. No wonder it is so hard to get to any of them.
