I've seen great reviews for The Language Inside and I'm really curious to what you think, Kimberly, you always have such eloquent reviews! :) Hope you're feeling better from the illness, 18 books is honestly a lot for me, maybe I'm just a slow reader haha! Enjoy reading all these books!

I would sign up for the Clean Sweep ARC Challenge... but I don't have any ARCs. :( Maybe next time.

The Language Inside looks really good (and sounds really good too)!

Happy reading! :)

18! You slacker, sickness is no excuse! Lol. I thought 15 for my clean sweep challenge was pretty challenging, not so much now :-) Nice haul.

Apparently it is, because everyone has commented on it..LOL I had viral pneumonia in April, which is why I was MIA for almost 2 weeks, but with my blog prescheduled not everyone knew about it. I am feeling stronger everyday, thanks Sam:)

do not be embarrassed I've been reading for almost forty years, its my addiction and I can read a paperback in 3 hrs. All that matters is that you enjoy it..no contest here.

Hope you are feeling better. But 18 books is not too shabby at all. My goal is to read three per week, so that's ….. um …. well … only 12. *slinks off in embarrassment*

Hey, new book from Robyn Carr! We've got a ton of those at the library :) And 18 books, huh? What's a typical month? I know you bang out romances usually in a night so it usually up in the higher 20's or 30's for the month? Just curious...


Like I said, get some sunshine in ya, you'll be stronger faster :) Have a great week!!

 
At July 17, 2013 at 10:59 PM , Anonymous kimbacaffeinate said...

typically 22-30. I read 3 hrs daily (not all in one sitting) and I can bang out a paperback in that time. I do not read a book a day, but go in spurts where I will read 3 one week and 6 the next, all depends on my mood and the type of book.

18 books is a good month for some of us! But we're all sorry you've been sick, and hope you are are feeling a lot better now!



And ooh, the new Robyn Carr! You'll have to tell us how you like it.

Sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well! 18 books is still a very impressive number though. :) Enjoy your new reads. x

Will check out your review, despite some awkward moments, I did enjoy it and found myself craving eclairs. It was far from perfect, but I loved the grandmas and small town feel.
