(Here's a picture of the playful racoons that were on the deck of the house last night.)
And I did conquer the office! Well, at least part of it. The
And here's the new bookcase. Technically it's for cd/media storage but it was just so adorable and the perfect size for my office I just had to get it. I got to move my hubby's cd's (a friggin miracle) and then move some books around. I got an extra shelf out of it in the built-in bookcase and filled the new shelves with cd's (he got 1 shelf) and my books. It's beeeeeautiful! Here are photos of the finished product. Later I'll be working on total office domination (which means that the trashy fish tank that is a total eyesore but my hubby refuses to move will be gone!) but for now I'm happy with the way it is. :0)
I even grouped the books that I'd already read by author. I know, don't fall off your chairs, I was just on a roll. :) And I have a big bag of books to take to the next So Cal Blogger Get-Together!
Reading: I really didn't read that much this week but I got everything done that I needed to so that was good.
Book for The Book Binge read - check
Book for Tracy's TBR Challenge Read read - check (well almost since it was a DNF)
Book for Nath's Re-Read Challeng read - check
and a couple other stories in between.
So up first was Saving Midnight by Emma Holly. As I said in my last post, the review is up at The Book Binge if you'd like to read it.
Next up was my Tracy's TBR Challenge Read for the week: All About Men by Shannon McKenna. Sorry to say this was a DNF for me. My thoughts are in my previous post here.
Next was Out of Her Dreams by Fran Lee. This is a story about a romance author who has dreamed about a man since she was 14. She has based a series of books on him and has used the likeness from her dream for the cover of the books. One day at a book signing a man shows up and he looks exactly like her dream man! It's a cute story that has lots of sex and some sweet moments. 4 out of 5
Last were the books I read for my Re-Read Challenge. I re-read the novella Alpha and Omega and the book Cry Wolf both by Patricia Briggs. I'll post my reviews on Tuesday.
And that's it! Can you believe it? I know I was shocked too. lol Ah well, another day...another book! lol
(Sorry for the book covers going all wonky. I can't seem to fix it. I think it might be time for a new blog template - this one's driving me batty! lol)
