Sunday Delight: Focus! Focus! Focus!

Happy Sunday Everyone!  
How was your week?  Did you get a new book?  Or two?
I have been slacking again on my  Blog Ahead goals. (hosted by Herding Cats and Burning Soup.)  I was on the grid and do it.  Currently, I have 10 blog post up and scheduled for the month of December.  I just need to get 20 more done.  I thought by now I would have about 20 done, but.....  slacking.  This is an blogger event to help you get motivated to schedule 30 blog post.  Yes! I said 30! So today I am going to try and knock out about 5 of them.  I seem to be not in the mood for writing reviews.  I was suppose to have 2 reviews done and posted this week so I am going to see if I can focus and get those two up this week.  Focus! Is the Key!  Focus! Focus! Focus!

Here and Now
