In Like A Lion; Out Like A Lamb! *wink*

Today is the last day of Katrina's challenege: Spring Reading Thing. And, she's asked those of us who participated to give a wrap-up. Here is where this post's quirky title comes in! LOL

My original list was very different from what I accomplished. Of the four books I set out to read, I completed two of them: Bringing Up Boys and Obsession.

However, I completed another five: When You Rise Up, Kingdom Come, Gone, Homeschooling For Dummies, and the book I won from one of Katrina's awesome giveaways, Lightning and Lace.

On the plus side, I completed all seven of my books in the first 8 weeks of the challenge. Which means...I haven't completed any more since mid-May. *sigh* I really pooped out after the fiction ran out! LOL While completing that many books in that short of time after not reading for so long felt AMAZING, once I got to some of the non-fiction which needed full concentration and brain expansion capabilities - I got "de-motivated'! LOL

But overall, it was a VERY positive experience! THANKS KATRINA! You rock!

I guess you didn't see my response to one of your comments on one of my post. I have been trying to figure out how to center my header. Did you size your header to in paint or some other program or did it dl to exact measurements? I notice yours is perfectly centered.

Yeah, I have to mix my nonfiction in with the fiction or I get de-motivated too. I like your post title. :) But you still did a great job -- seven books in eight weeks is great! Thanks for being part of the Spring Reading Thing!

That's okay. A little pooping out is fine. I know that my reading goes in phases like that too.

I have that same experience with non-fiction - even when I really do want the knowledge in the book!
