I haven’t posted one of these in quite a while and thought I had better catch up a little.
We’ve been averaging 7 attendees at the Vision meetings and there have been 2 instances over the last few months where we’ve been booted out of our room at the Queensland State Library with very little notice and it was through the brilliance of the Brisbane Square Library that we were able to go ahead with our meetings.
I have written 12385 words since the last blog. Most of those were for the burn bright website.
I have read, as of May, 34 more books. Which is a total of 81 books. I’m happy to meet that resolution.
On my review TBR pile I have
- Dollhouse in Ebook by Anya Allyn
- Sea Hearts by Margo Lanagan
- All These Things I’ve done by Gabrielle Zevin
- A Killing in the Hills by Julia Keller
- The Blind Goddess by Anne Holt
- The Geneva Trap by Stella Rimington
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
- Tangle of need by Nalini Singh
And on order for review are
Undeadly by Michele Vail
Spark by Brigid Kemmerer
For my own personal reading *and perhaps review*
Roil and Night’s Engines by Trent Jamieson
Exile and Sactuary by Rowena Cory Daniells
This doesn’t even include the other books I should catch up on like the last Laurell K Hamilton.
To get through these books I have been endeavouring to up my pages read per day count to 150 rather than 100.
Wish me luck.
Oh and the biggest and coolest things to happen to me since the last at a glance blog were getting to meet the two wonderful authors Isobelle Carmody and Charlaine Harris.
A little bragging photographic evidence
Life is a wonderful thing, even through colds and migraines and dealing with day to day life.
Though we haven’t had a regular few weeks. With the kiddo winning the first prize in a Japanese Speaking competition against 3 other schools, and her coming second in the district for high jump in her age bracket, I was walking on air.
I can not believe my little girl is officially 11 years old as of last week, and the day before her birthday was competing in the regional athletics carnival. She feels like she didn’t do so well, but I remind her when she is in a moment of self doubt, she was one of only 2 untrained girls in her age bracket at this level of competition. The fact that she’s made it this far makes her a champion in my opinion. She was the ONLY girl from her district high jump competition to even compete at the regionals. I was a really proud Mum.
And my latest tutorial is up on Marianne’s Ewtube channel
9 Months into the year and well on the way to the end of the 2012.
The future is shining bright. *wink*
