What I've been doing lately

Reading LOL!! I am surprised by how far along I am in the 100 book challenge. I was really doubting I could make it at one point. And I kept telling myself I had to hit 50 by June, 6 months in half way mark would make sense right?

Well I'm on 61!! YAY!! And I'm not going to stop, I love to read so even once I hit the 100 mark I won't stop, I'm going to keep going as much as I have to see how many I can read in 50 weeks. I say 50 because I was a week or two late starting the challenge at my library which began the first of the year.

I've taken this challenge so far that I've challenged my friends on a online forum's book club area to read 100 with me this year! And I'm earning a "gold card" from my library once I complete the challenge so I've offered up our very own 'gold book club card' for those that meet the quota. I'm actually thinking of using different colors for all participants depending on how many they've read. Sort of like the Olympic medals come in different colors, everyone should be included LOL!!

So here is what I've read since the last post:

The Letters by Luanne Rice & Joseph Monninger

Under the Radar by Fern Michaels Another great edition to The Sisterhood Series!

The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks Always love his books.

Dark Summer by Iris Johansen Loved this one!

The Stanislaski Stories (Taming Natasha & Luring a Lady)by Nora Roberts

Practically Perfect by Katie Fforde

Look Again by Lisa Scottoline Absolutely LOVE Scottoline!!! I read this in a few hours!

Summer on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber A true Macomber novel, I enjoy this series too, can't wait until the next in her Cedar Cover series comes out in September.

Savannah Breeze by Mary Kay Andrews this is a "new" author to me, she's on the list below I just discovered her while doing this challenge and I do enjoy her books. Such southern humor!!

Anyone out there care to share what you're reading? =0) Julie I know you're list LOL!!

Yes! You know my list. :)

Your idea about the different colored cards is so awesome! And, like you, I plan on keep reading even once I get to 100....I'll never stop! But I'll keep tracking for the rest of this year.

I was worried too but it's not quite June and I just finished book #56 I think...something along those lines.
