Isn’t summer supposed to be about relaxing and having fun? Sure, I’ve got down the “having fun” part, but relaxing?! I think I’m busier now than during the school year when I’m working 2-3 days per week!
And reading — It’s not happening!! Take the book I’m reading now, The Lady of the Storm by Kathryne Kennedy. I am really enjoying it; at about the halfway mark, it’s reading like a 4 Star book. However, instead of reading about 50 pages per day, I’m reading 20 pages. I wanted to have the review for today and I’m not even close to finishing it! I blame it on the later sunset – more time playing outside. But honestly, I just don’t know where the time goes.
Falling behind in one book means somewhere, someplace, another review has to give. With so many great books coming up – ones that I WANT to read, even if I don’t have them for “official review” – I just don’t know what to do! I see my IAD Reading Challenge being axed again this month. Does that make me a bad person? I can’t even keep up with my own reading challenge. *sigh*
But I have accomplished some good things this summer.

Lastly… AAD is coming in less than 2 weeks! For those not familiar, AAD = Authors After Dark Convention. AAD 2011 is going to be in Philadelphia and I will be attending from August 10 to 14. I am SO excited for this opportunity to
So life has been busy and fun… summer is in full swing and I’m tackling it head on. But there are consequences. Now… maybe I’ll go read for a while! What have you been up to this summer? What are you planning to do before fall arrives?
