Last week was a so-so week. There were days I was totally driven to read and others I was so damn lazy.
I headed over to Barnes and Noble on Wednesday picked up some new books. (YAY!) I got The Road, Breakfast at Tiffany’s (reviewed here), and Boardwalk Empire. I finished writing reviews for the books I completed the prior week and got my head back into books. I completed A Reliable Wife and had my mind BLOWN. (See my review here for what I mean)
Thursday I read some more of Fifth Avenue 5 A.M. The book is taking me a while to read because it’s discussing the way Breakfast at Tiffany’s changed women’s views of themselves, and what they could accomplish with their sexuality. It also gives historical information on how the book came to be and how it was turned into a film. There are multitudes of facts, thoughts, and ideas discussed that so I’m trying to take my time reading it to fully appreciate it. It makes many references to the novel version of Tiffany’s so I decided to take a pause with this book and read Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I figured what better time than now?
Friday Todd and I went to a wedding for our friends Dave and Kate. Had a great time with all of Todd’s co-workers – it was an all around good evening. We came home from the wedding and passed out early, as Todd had to head to Atlantic City the following day for a bachelor party.
Saturday got up early and got a ton accomplished before Todd left for AC. I got two loads of laundry done, read some Breakfast at Tiffany’s, made brownies, and then pasta salad all by 11:30am. My aunts drove my grandma up that afternoon from New Jersey to have lunch and hang out together. It was nice seeing them and I always enjoy seeing gram. Adam came over that night and we just hung out, read, and watched some TV. (Adam and I LOVE watching Law and Order Los Angeles together – we’re addicted)
Sunday I wrote my blog reviews for A Reliable Wife and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and then started reading my next book Mr. Darcy’s Little Sister.
Week end I was up to 74 completed books. This leaves 26 books before December 31st. I have to read a little over 4 books a week for the next 6 weeks to make it to 100! I need to read almost two books every two days to complete the challenge for 2010. OY OY!
I’m off now to go crawl in bed and read some more. It’s going to be a busy 6 weeks!! Wish me luck!
