Weekly Round-Up 1/7/2018

Here we are folks! The first round-up of the new year. Quick weather update: the temperature here in Fargo has barely crept over 0 Fahrenheit this past week. Apparently we might actually see a double-digit high today, fingers crossed. To celebrate the New Year, the battery died in one of our cars, but thanks to YouTube I was able to change it out myself even with a temperature of -6 in my garage. Gotta love living in a northern climate. Let’s get to the numbers now.

TBR – The year opened with a total of 277. I finished reading 2 books this week and added 1. The new total is 276. Not a terrible start.

Goodreads challenge – I set my goal at 100 again for this year. The 2 books I finished puts me ahead 1 book as of today.

NetGalley score – I didn’t read any NetGalley books this week so score remains at 87%.

JohnConnolly challenge – I am currently listening to book 3 in the series “The Killing Kind”.

Coming up – This year I am actually scheduling my reading. This week I will be reading “Kings of Georgian Britain” by Catherine Curzon, Kings of Georgian BritainUnwanted” by Andrew Young, Unwanted and “The Killing Kind” by John Connolly. The Killing Kind My reading year is off to a good start, I just hope I can keep it that way.

Happy Reading! and stay warm!


Weekly Round-Up 8/20/2017

Well, this week didn’t go as planned. The process of getting ready to go back to school just seemed to take over my week and I didn’t get nearly as much reading done as I had hoped, nor did I do as many narrations as I wanted to. So, I start work again tomorrow and it will probably take me a couple of weeks to figure out what I can realistically accomplish each week. I apologize if you all have been missing me this week. Let’s check my status.

TBR – I did not add any books this week. But in the interests of full disclosure, I have at least 3 requests in at NetGalley. I finished 2 books this week and the current total is 274.

NetGalley Score – Currently sitting at 82% but if those requests come thru, I’m doomed.

Goodreads – I am still on track but barely…

Coming Up – So this is what’s coming but I’m making no guarantees as to when at this point. Review of “The Fact of a Body” by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich, hopefully up tomorrow. The Fact of a Body I am currently reading “A Perfect Obsession” by Heather Graham. A Perfect Obsession So that’s it for today guys. Assuming I survive my first week back I check back in with you next week.

Happy Reading!
