I checked into Goodreads tonight and was dismayed to see that I am 9 books BEHIND in reaching my book reading goal of 75 books in 2012! Yikes. I know that it’s still early in the year and that reading goals can be amended, but I wonder what I have been doing lately!
I guess the big answer is: I’ve been busy! 🙂 I started working on January 30 and have now finished five weeks of training with one more to go! The training has been great and I’m learning so much, that it’s almost all I can focus on. My evenings have been full, as well, but I am still keeping up with the blogs I follow (although I culled a few) and mostly keeping up with twitter and facebook. I listen to podcasts in the morning and I participated in a readalong with Wallace at Unputdownables.net. I can’t believe that “A Moveable Feast” is the only book I read in February!
Well, I guess I also listened to an audiobook – Mildred Pierce – and I’m now watching the HBO mini-series that is based on the book. Kate Winslet was a big winner last year for her performance in the miniseries. It was an interesting book and the miniseries is pretty good. Two more episodes to watch.
But things are changing. After this week of working 8-5, my crazy all-over-the-place Emergency Department schedule begins. I work next weekend and will work many 12-hour shifts, which means fewer actual days worked. The pile of books – 10 high – is still waiting for me to delve into and I can’t wait.
Our next book club book is “Still Alice,” so I have to get my hands on that and hopefully read it before the end of March! I know I can do it and can’t wait to read it and see my book club friends soon!
I hope that you are reading everything that you want to be reading and enjoying every minute!
Off to read – Oprah magazine! 🙂
