Can I Possibly Read Everything This Month?

I spend pretty much most of my spare time reading.  I can't help myself.  And just when I think I may be actually catching up, I find more books to read and end up with a huge pile of books lying next to my bed.  The current pile has doubled in the past week alone.  I can't seem to sit and read any one book for more than a day or two before I pick up another one.  I am out of control!  I think I have about 6 books started, half finished, and almost-finished.  

The reason for my book freak out is because I am starting graduate school in 3 weeks and I am trying to cram in as much reading as possible before school starts.  I have no idea just how much school work I will have--but I suspect it will be enough to seriously put a dent into my reading.  And with every day of the week either working or at school, I won't have a huge chunk of time to just sit and read.  Unless I learn to live on no sleep at all.  Has anyone figured out how to do that?  Let me know, please!

For now, I'm attempting to read all of these books by the end of next week:

Book giveaway next week!!

Wow.  I didn't realize how much I have on my plate.  I am going to be giving away a copy of JoJo Moyes' The Girl You Left Behind next week, so watch for details and enter!  Contest will start on Monday, August 12th.  

I think this is a good mix of stories for this week.  What are you reading?


  1. What about audio books? Then you could utilize your commute time :)

    1. I can't stand to hear someone chatting in my ear like that. Tried audio books once and it drove me nuts! I prefer to read a book with my pacing, not someone else's. I wish I could listen to audio--I would read even more :)

  2. Congrats on going back to school. I've often thought I'd like to go back. I love to learn.
