Bout of Books- Final Update!

Bout of Books 

==========================================
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
========================================= 
 
This is my first Bout of Books, so forgive me if I seem lost sometimes! I enjoy reading and you should join too!

MY GOALS

* How I'm feeling:

Well as you can tell by this much delayed post,  the last 3 days went terribly awry. I ended up in the ER for 7 hours Friday only to be sent home and called back Saturday afternoon and rushed into emergency surgery.  No reading was completed and although I'll be at home in recovery for the next two weeks the medication makes it nearly impossible to read :-(

 

I did make several new friends and am looking forward to keeping up with them and hopefully joining the next bout of books in January.
