TSS – Thankfully Reading and 2011 Challenges

I hope everyone is enjoying Thankfully Reading Weekend! I have a mini-challenge and prize up right now, and there is another over at Beth Fish Reads. Speaking of the Beth Fish Reads mini-challenge, actually, I wanted to show you all some of my TBR shelves. These are my library and review copy shelves, not including books from BEA and GLiBA.

Thank goodness I have a spreadsheet, because I can’t actually see all of those books. I wish I’d made a bigger dent in this TBR pile over Thankfully Reading weekend, but with family in town and a toddler I haven’t had a ton of time. Still, I’ve made a point of being thankful for the time I have, instead of regretting the time I don’t have. I have finished one book and an audiobook, as well as made a good dent in the podcasts I was behind on.


Last year I joined about 20 challenges, and I failed the majority of them, so this year I am only joining two challenges, my own, The Debutante Ball Challenge, and this year’s What’s In A Name Challenge.

By the way, the What’s in a Name 3 Challenge was one of the few challenges I actually finished.

  1. Body of Water – Dead-Tossed Waves
  2. Food – Mr. Peanut
  3. Music – The Dead Beat
  4. Place name – East of Eden
  5. Plant – The Language of Trees
  6. Title – A Friend of the Family


Okay, now for what I’ve read this week. It may look impressive that I finished 6 books, but three of those books (2 print, 1 audio) I was reading the majority of the week before and I finally finished them on Tuesday.



This past week I had a special feature which I called “Harvest Week.” In addition to my explanatory post, I posted three reviews (covers link to reviews):

For Saturday Story Spotlight I unveiled a new button, courtesy of Sheila at Book Journey and showcased a book that Daniel has loved for months:
