Friday Five - June 26

Hello All! I hope you all had a wonderful week. Mine has been very busy. I've only had time to finish 2 books so far this week. I drive to/from Indy for class tomorrow and am hoping to get an audio book in!

1. Sadness - can u believe both Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett died this week? It makes me feel old as I grew up listening to Michael as part of the Jackson 5 (yes, I'm that old) and watching Charlie's Angels. I have a pic of me and 2 teacher friends dressed alike and doing the classic Angels pose. I'll have to try and find it.

2. ADD Meds? - This has been a tough year for me and it's only June. I'm ADD and my meds have lost their effectiveness. I've known this for awhile but it was really brought home when a friend mentioned that normally I'm keeping him on track and he wanted to know what was wrong! I use a non-stimulant and am reluctant to go to a stimulant so have been ignoring the problem. Anyone have any good stories/websites before I make an appt?

GameOnDiet3. Game On Diet - Heard about this via @BookClubGirl and was intrigued. I was reading the book online and decided to form a team and join the challenge. Reading is not a full-body sport! These past 3 yrs have seen some weight increases that I only fully acknowledged in a pic of me last week. Yes, I knew it was happening but I hadn't seen it! I'm very adept at avoiding mirrors! Anywho, we will be going against 2 other teams formed by She Is Too Fond Of Books. Look for our posts on Monday!

4. Contests - I am running contests each Monday until I don't know when. I start back full-time August 10 so at least until then. I have some ideas of books I will be giving away. Check out the link and tell me what you think. Also, take a look in the left sidebar for a few other contest ideas!

5. Book Sales - @myfriendamy and @lenoreva are running an experiment to see if book blogging actually increases book sales. They are asking u to buy a copy of Beth Kephart's Nothing But Ghosts. My Friend Amy has a review and info about the drive and Presenting Lenore has an interview and a review. They have some really nice prizes. If you were buying the book anyway, why not do it now and enter their contest?!?

Enjoy your weekend. I have a few reviews coming up, including one for an abandoned book! Which book couldn't I finish? Tune in to find out! LOL!

ps - someone asked about those nav tabs at the top but I can't find ur email but if you go here, you will find great tips on that sorta stuff, specially since GoofyGirl actually did mine!


  1. Great links!I'm heading over to the Nothing but Ghosts book drive now.

  2. Thanks for the reminder about NOthing but Ghosts - I saw that last night, but was too tired to order (might as well get some CDs as well hehe).


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
