I always intend to get tons of reading done when I have time off work, but never manage to achieve my goals. All that family stuff ends up taking up more time than I expect. :) This year I'm thankful for Thankfully Reading Weekend for getting me to focus on my reading. I still didn't get through as much as anticipated but was able to get through one entire book, Djibouti, and make a pretty good dent in a second, The Emperor's Tomb.
I was also happy to have the camaraderie of my fellow thankful readers and to have the opportunity to participate in the mini-challenges. Thanks to Jenn's Bookshelves, Beth Fish Reads, and Devourer of Books for co-hosting this year's Thankfully Reading Weekend!
