Top of Hour Five

Things are going well so far. I got to visit a bunch of new blogs and some cool people have stopped by and wished me well, too. Thanks guys! I haven't yet participated in any mini-challenges, but let's see what the rest of the day brings.

I'm about halfway through my book. Looking good! I'm enjoying the stories. They are a good way to get a minute or so mental break in. I stop to digest each story before moving on to the next. Now I'm off to visit some other Read-a-Thoners...

Good call reading the short stories. Seems like a great way to keep reading for along time from getting monotonous.

Short stories seem to be the way to go! As for the mini-challenges, they seem to be really fun - a great way of quickly getting to know one another between books.

Happy reading. I'll come back and visit you again :D
