Without further ado, here is my Summer Bookshelf....some of them are on their way to me right now from Amazon, some have been been sitting unread on my bookshelf for some time, some are suggestions from you (thank you so much!)....and a couple of them I feel like I am the only person in the world not to have read!
(Update, I just added these last two....a couple of you mentioned "The Glass Castle" and I had already started "The Book Thief" but did not finish it....even though everyone I know said it was one of their best reads ever. I shall return to it!)
I need to get reading!!
Thank you for all the suggestions and comments about what you are reading - to find out more about any of these books, click on the book and it will link you to Amazon....
As a mini-giveaway, I am offering three followers any paperback of their choice (via Amazon)....just leave a comment and I will pick a winner this Wednesday July 14.
....I run and go to the gym....
but I need to be more dedicated (and less easily diverted by other activities or jobs needed to be done!)
....I leave for my beach holiday in 30 days....
....I am therefore setting myself a challenge of losing 10-15 lbs in that time....
....please feel free to ask me....how I am doing/if I am sticking with the program/if I have eaten any cookies
.....or to encourage me and join me!
I will have my work cut out but I know how much better I will feel sitting on that beach....off to the gym first thing tomorrow morning :)
Just writing it down and saying it out loud makes me feel more motivated and focused....I should add that it might seem like a lot to lose in 30 days....but of course I have been
hoping planning to lose it all year and now I am down to the wire....isn't it always the way!!
As some of you may know, I am running a 5K race in September in aid of Breast Cancer Campaign....I just wanted to update you and tell you that I have so far raised £580 (USD$873, CAN$902 & AUS$997).....thanks to donations and also by renting myself out as a babysitter (that has been extremely popular!!!!
Thank you SO much to those of you who have sponsored me...and if you would like donate and support this fantastic cause, you can do so here.....every pound, euro or dollar counts!
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!
