Challenge Update – May 2009



As far as reading went, May is a bust. I did a lot of “behind the scenes” type stuff this month. I “moved” to Bluehost and started tweaking my blog (still have a few more things to sort out, but things are going smoothly). I was off from work for a week and I purged books (most went to Share the Love, but I also had a stack of books that were on wishlists at I posted four reviews. I was making progress on the back log – expecting to have two more done this weekend — until the Friday night disaster.

My laptop. It died. Or maybe just the power pack, I wasn’t sure at the time. Since my techincal guru was away this weekend, I had to wait until Sunday morning for his verdict. He thinks it’s the laptop battery. Even unplugged from the power pack, it will not power up.

So, here I am, on my mother’s laptop.

Anyway, I did actually read this month. I finished one book.

This is a re-post. Below are the comments that I was able to salvage from the SQL file. See this post for an explanation. I apology for the inconvenience. (Aug 09)

Beth F, 2009-06-02: We all have had a bad reading month before. Here’s to a better June

Me, 2009-06-04: You’d think that, with no computer since 30 May, I’d read more. So far…no.   🙄 Thanks for the positive vibes though. 😀
