To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading? Vampireville(Vampire Kisses, #3) by Ellen Schreiber-This is a young adult series that my niece left with me last year that I am reading before she comes down so I can return them to her…there are 7 in the series, I believe, but she only had the first 4 at the time to leave with me)

What did you recently finish reading? Vampire Kisses and Kissing Coffins(Vampire Kisses, #1 and #2) by Ellen Schreiber

Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen-This was a really interesting read…it was a memoir by a lady who grew up in the religion and then moved on from it, but after her husband left her for a man and she was in a bad accident, she came back to her family during her recovery and talked about her past…

What do you think you’ll read next? I still have #4, Dance with a Vampire by Ellen Schreiber to read and then I plan to finally start 11/22/63 by Stephen King! 🙂

I have completed my updated reading challenge now! I started out with 50 books to read in a year and completed THAT in September so I changed it to 75 and I am now currently at 76 books read! SO I have completed both the original AND updated challenges now and even passed them! From now on, until the end of the year, everything I read is just bonus for my challenge! 🙂

What are you currently reading? “Mennonite in a Little Black Dress” by Rhoda Janzen (What can I say? I just like reading about people from different religions)

What did you recently finish reading? “My Horizontal Life” by Chelsea Handler (The only book I read this past week…it was a slow week for reading with Thanksgiving and everything!)

What do you think you’ll read next? I plan to read “11/22/63” by Stephen King next, but I have a few books I borrowed from one of my nieces I have to return at Christmas time and if my reading stays as slow as it has been this past week, I may have to wait for this over 800 page book!

Giving Thanks Day 30: This is the final day of my Giving Thanks section on my posts, but I fully intend to keep giving thanks for things in my life daily by taking time out of every day to reflect on things I am thankful for. Since this is the last day, I am giving thanks today, for everything in my life, both good AND bad, because it has all made me into who I am today. Without the negatives, I wouldn’t appreciate the positives as much as I do so I am thankful for them both and I am also thankful for everyone who is in my life and helped mold me into the person I am. If you’re a faithful reader of my blog, I want to also say a special Thanks to you because writing in my blog daily has been such a good thing for me and without people who faithfully read and comment, I might not have stuck with it as long as I have and come to realize what writing really means to me. This month has all been about thankfulness and tomorrow starts a month all about Giving. Giving without expecting anything in return. Giving of your time and love, not just of material things. May we all never forget what an importance giving to others is! 🙂

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
