Notes about today: Missed the Twitter Chat because I completely forgot to convert the time change over.  1:00 in CST is not 1:00 PST.  LOL!  Duhh!  Anyways, I wanted to read during lunch at work but that did not happen at all.  I was too tired to after the gym to read last night.  But I did comment on a few blogs and I did finish my posting calendar for January and February for both blogs.  So something came off of my goals list.  :)

Vampires in Popular Fiction hosted by The One with Rachel's Book

WHO are your favourite vampires? And WHY?? 
I want everyone to name one guy vamp and one lady vamp (and the books/series they are from, just so everyone knows), and explain why they have a place in your heart as your super most favourite vampires everrr. You will win bonus points for creativity of your explanations. "I love him" isn't a good enough explanation for me, I'm afraid. And remember, no one is wrong if they can explain their answer, but you can be more right than other people.
My go to answer would have been Lestat from Interview with A Vampire. But I read Cheshire Red Reports (Book 1 and 2) and I feel in love with Raylene. She is soo cool!  Most vampires are just rich with no real source of income.  Not my girl!  She has a job.  Not a 9-5 job but she makes a living.  I love that!!  
Notes about today:  I commented on several blogs, completed one challenge and got a few things done on both blogs.

Name Your Book Crack hosted by Bookgoonie
So I want you to reflect and identify your deepest, darkest addictions. What is your Book Crack? What can you NOT SAY NO to? What bookish things make you blissful?
My book crack is free.  I have so many free book from events that I can't even keep them all in one place.  I have bookshelf full of books and more in boxes and on the floor.  Really!?  If it is FREE!  who am I to say no! 
Bookish Dress Up hosted by Nyx Book Reviews
So I decided to kind of dress like the character in the book I am reading right now.  The Hairdresser of Harare takes place in Zimbabwe and the main character is 26 year old hair dresser.  This my chic high class version of Vimbai.  I don't love this dress but I ADORE it!  Simply Amazingggg!!!!

Notes about today: I got a lot of reading done today and I took down the Christmas tree finally.  (As well as completed the tree clean up) I also finished one review, entered 3 Challenges, and started a few blog post.  Today was an extremely productive day!!  Hopefully tomorrow I will finish the book I am reading and I will complete the review as well.  Fingers crossed!

Notes about today:  I am so glad to have 2 books done.  And I am thrilled to have a book I have had on my shelf for review off my shelf.  I think that leaves just 1 or 2 more on my shelf for review.  Then it's down to my stuff only for the rest of the year.  I love Bout of Books!!
