Lori (tnbbc) Ok, so im not too sure i will be able to keep this updated constantly, but i will try.

I seem to average a book a week, so I will shoot for 50 books this year, begining tonite, 9/24/07. (I need two weeks off, one for christmas break - the kids will be home nonstop for one week, leaving me virtually no reading time - and one week for our yearly family vacation.)

I am currently reading:
Death of an Ordinary Man by Glen Duncan.

And off we go......
