Sunday Salon - Just Rambling On...

I spent this weekend trying to reorganize my blog. I was a bit tired of the old look and I decided to try something different. I've also been playing with all the neat little gadgets on Blogspot and added some tabs above to show what 2011 reading challenges I joined and am hosting.
So far I joined 7 and am hosting 5 (3 will be ending in the middle of the year). That's really not that bad and I think I'm going to pick up 2 or 3 more that I've been contemplating. I joined much more last year and that was really silly because I knew I was having surgery at the beginning of the year and would be in no mood for challenges. As it turned out, I didn't even feel like reading anything for the first couple of months of the year. So, that explains why I didn't do nearly as well in 2010 as I did in 2009.
Anyway, 2011 is a new start and I'm really getting excited about all the great reading I'm planning (although nothing ever really goes as planned and I'm prepared for that too.)
As for reading, I only finished one book this week, Snowbound Seduction by Helen Brooks. I did complete one of my challenges from 2010 - Read Your Own Book. I didn't realize I only needed one more book to finish it.
I spent so much time redecorating my blog yesterday that I neglected my reading, so I will try and get some reading time in today. I also want to watch the movie Sunday at Tiffanys. I recorded it from the Lifetime channel and it's based on the James Patterson book, which I loved. It's always a bit tricky with books and movies. Generally, I enjoy the book more, but we'll see.
Tonight is the season finale of Survivor and I'm looking forward to that. Last night I watched the season finale of season 3 of True Blood. HBO reran it, so I finally had a chance to watch and loved it. I can't wait for season 4, but I think it's a long way off. To tide me over, I'm going to get back to the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. I'm up to book 3 and I'm going to head over to the library this afternoon and get the audio version. That should be fun to listen when I go to work.
We were supposed to have a major snow storm today, but we lucked out. It's cold, but no snow.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Have a great week!
