Winter 2014-2015 COYER Progress:  I’ve hit my goal of 10 books, and participated in 2 read-a-thons towards my goal of 3.  I’ve been keeping up with the Facebook group, and I did a mini-challenge.

Take Control of Your TBR Pile Progress: This challenge just started yesterday.

Show Your Shelves Some Love Progress: 8 

Outdo Yourself Progress: 9

Netgalley/Edelweiss Progress: 7

SF/F Bingo: Since I’ve already finished this challenge, I’m working on filling in the whole card.  I haven’t decided which square The Burning Land will be placed on, but I’m thinking “new to me author”.

Total pages read for the week: 659

Total number of books for the year: 11.  I’m back on schedule, for now.  I’ve got another 3 papers to write and an exam on Friday, and then I’ll be getting into Midterms week before going to a weekend meditation retreat as Spring Break starts.  I’m exhausted, and trying not to have a meltdown.  Everything feels like work and all I want to do is sit on the couch in my PJs with a bottle of wine and some chocolate and binge watch everything on Netflix.  Even gaming feels like too much productivity to me right now.  I’m really enjoying Shadowmagic though, and it has greatly improved my commute.
