I apologize for the very long hiatus because of the utter busyness of these past few days (haven’t I used that excuse once or twice already? hehe) plus, am enjoying the much-needed break so much.
So just a quick update: Am currently reading the UK Edition of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows which Blooey of Sumthinblue.com has kindly sent me. A friend even salivated when she saw the gorgeous cover when I received the package at work. Thank you, thank you, Blooey. 😀
I have just recently joined Islandhopper‘s A to Z Book Reading Challenge.
The Goal: To read 26 authors with surnames from A to Z between January 1 to December 31, 2010. I have yet to compile my list and see what I can come up with. Will post the list as soon as I’m done.
For anyone wanting a piece of this book challenge action, please click here.
I am so looking forward to more reading joys in 2010. Hope you guys are, too. Happy Holidays! 🙂

The finals week had me running on constant nervous energy that I wasn’t able to fully concentrate on the lessons and review materials I prepared much less to read a non-textbook. Even days after that grueling period, still I wasn’t able to get back into a good reading groove not until I was able to submit all the teachers’ respective class requirements and get some good nights sleep. So now that I’m playing the waiting game (for finals grade plus the results of the entrance test to masters class), I want to enjoy every minute of it with what else but reading.
The TBR grew considerably despite my supposed “aversion” from books during that time (Booksale Emall is just a few blocks away from school so what can I say? :P). Crossing my fingers I’d get to devour these new ones along with those already in the list (see The Pile) before the year ends or I’d get non-stop cries of “you’re always buying books yet you can’t even finish them coz you’re too busy doing other stuff.” Some people can be quite, er, frank. Hehehe
