FIRST, the BOOKS
yesterday's snapshot. I'll celebrate today, instead. I love libraries. I must confess that I found this "put your face in a book" photo on where else? Facebook. (Thanks, June Damanti.)
WHAT I'M READING
1. The Age of Grief ~ by Jane Smiley, 1987, fiction
2. Into the Tangle of Friendship: A Memoir of the Things That Matter ~ by Beth Kephart, 2000, memoir
3. Eternal Life: A New Vision: Beyond Religion, Beyond Theism, Beyond Heaven and Hell ~ by John Shelby Spong, 2009, religion

I chose thirteen books to read (and keep adding to the list), along with two other goals: to read twice as many of my own books as library books, and to clear books off my shelves.
I feel pretty good about my progress! These categories (see below) show I've read half fiction and half nonfiction so far, and I'm currently reading one of each right now (see above).
- I've read 9 of the 13 planned books, plus 3 I've added = 12.
- Of those 12, only 3 were library books.
- So I'm averaging 3 of mine to every library book.
- I've boxed 27 books to take to the used book store.
I almost forgot to mention that Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon is coming up this week. There's still time for you to sign up, if you'd like to join us in all the fun, which includes mini-challenges and prizes and all sorts of hoopla.
Best of all, of course, if trying to get a lot of reading done. A lot or a little, it's up to each person. I read, but I spend probably an equal amount of time visiting other readers and playing with the mini-challenges that appeal to me.
Ginnie Sams. I really like it, and it "goes so well" with Raegan's pink. Thanks, Ginnie!
This is a very public THANK YOU to Rich, who worked valiantly to keep up my blog called Weekend Wordsmith. He kept it going for three and a half years. I was ready to drop it, when the comments sagged, but Rich stepped in and posted the weekly prompts. Participation has dropped again, so it's time to try something new. And I have once again taken over of posting weekly prompts on Fridays. Today's prompt is for us to Thank Rich.
