I like big books and I cannot lie...
printable bookmarks available from I Should Be Mopping the Floor
That phrase always makes me titter. I'm not sure why really. Hmmn. Childish sense of humour maybe? I'm still giggling out loud about the Agent Zoil joke in Paul which we watched a week ago. Yup, a childish sense of humour probably explains it.
Anyways, I'm just popping in to say that I've finished the Semi-Charmed Summer 2013 Reading Challenge! Yay, me! In case you are wondering, the final books were:
15: Read a banned book. - The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky (244 pages)
20: Read a book that takes place in a state you have never been in. If you have been to all 50 states, choose a book that takes place in a country you have never been in. Also do the latter option if you are not American. - Mr Penumbra's 24-hour Book Store, Robin Sloan, (304 pages)
25: Read a book with a main character who shares your first name. - Pedigree Mum, Fiona Gibson (400 pages)
And boy, have I enjoyed it! I honestly never thought I'd finish but it seems that having a goal in mind really spurred me on. I'm very grateful for Megan at Semi-Charmed Kind of Life for her book challenge and for giving me back my reading mojo. I am determined not to stop, so I've jumped straight into another book recommended by my dad (The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant). And all that kindling I did made me realise how nice it is to get straight to the right page, saving me from my more normal three-minute-faff-around-while-I -search-for-my-place-each-and-every-night, so I've printed some lovely bookmarks as a reward to myself. You can have some too if you follow that link up there.
