First things first, the Harlequin Reading Challenge is officially over. Industrious little wiener that I am, I reviewed every book. So be sure to hit the link if you have the desire to catch-up or relive the glory. Gotta say, it was kind of fun and it did keep me focused. I might have to do more of these reading challenges once the new year hits.
Also, this may or may not be the last blog post you see from me for a while. Tomorrow we're boarding a plane for upstate New York to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with The Boyfriend's family. We're also going to spend a few days hanging out with one of his former college roommates, The Tater. I foresee beer and pizza in my future.
My mission while I'm gone is to read Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. Otherwise known as The Book My Older Sister Has Been Nagging Me To Read For Years. She's finally worn me down, which is the only reason I can come up with for reading a 945 page novel. That's right, 945 pages. Needless to say my being "gentle" on book spines anal retentiveness is indefinitely on hold. I plan on beating the crap out of this book's spine. I won't be able to read it otherwise. 945 pages. Geez. Anyone want to take bets on how long it takes me to finish it?
We will have The Boyfriend's laptop, with it's wireless connection, with us for this trip, but we'll see how reception is. We're literally going to be out in the middle of nowhere. Assuming all systems are go, I hope to keep up with my blog rounds and maybe make a few posts of my own. If not, well you'll hear from me on the 24th. But lordy I hope the wireless will be in good working order because no Internet would probably mean the DTs.
