My Active Blog

I have a few new readers and I thought I'd share with you some of the other stuff I have going on at this blog.

I love to read obviously and have two reading related challenges.

The first is my Read One Book Challenge inspired by the fact that 53% of Americans didn't read a single book last year. You can read about this challenge and sign up for it here.

I also am hosting the LOST Books Challenge. I absolutely LOVE Lost. I can't wait for it to come back. By the way, if you are participating in this challenge the next Mr. Linky for reviews will be up on September 20th. You can read all about the Lost Books Challenge here.

But the truth is I love story in all of it's manifestations and I've missed several key movies in my I am hosting the Couch Potato Challenge. So far, it's just me and the awesome Vader's Mom and she's way ahead of me, but I tell you what...if five more people sign up for this challenge before Friday the 5th, I'll give one lucky participant a season of Veronica Mars. Read about it here and sign up!

Finally, there are still a few days left to enter one of these giveaways!

I think the Couch Potato Challenge is one of the best things I've signed up for in a long time. I've really enjoyed the movies and might keep going even after the challenge is over. (I've missed a lot!!)

I somehow missed the couch potato one, but I'm on board. Easy one for me since I'm a huge movie fan:) I dropped the ball on your Lost challenge because I have too many ARC's to read for authors arrggg. Keep up the great ideas young lady!

The Couch Potato Challenge 08...It's On!
This is the exact opposite of Kat's challenge.
The good news is your doing both!

"53% of Americans didn't read a single book last year"

Facts like this make me want to curl up into a ball and sob until I am nothing but an empty husk. This is such a huge part of what's wrong with the world. If more people read, they'd be more intelligent, more compassionate, more willing to help out their fellow human being. At least, that's what I like to believe.
