What are you reading Wednesday #1

 

I am always reading multiple books at a time.  Here are the books I plan on finishing this week:

The Perfect Couple I plan on finishing this for both of my group challenges this week.

Educated I plan on reading this for my Vegas book club.  We all hated the previous book, so we changed mid month.

Google Your Husband Back  I am reading this one just for fun, but I am sure it will fit into my group challenges somewhere.

 

What a mess

I have many draft posts ready to go.  I am prepping for my upcoming trip.  I have posts that are ready to post, but I am waiting on them.  I have some that just have titles.  I have some that are partially written.  I have the prep work done for some of the challenges, but I need to read the books, still.  I have to decide which books are going with me, too.

I am sorting and writing and basically just wading through the mess.  It will be beautiful when I am finished, but you can’t see the mess that is in the background.  It will get sorted out and completed by the end of the month, I think.

8/75, 11% done

I am back on track.  Actually, a book ahead of being on track!  I feel like I am making progress.  I haven’t figured out what I am going to start next, though.  I am in Goodread challenges for the next couple of months, and they require me to read at least a book a week.  That’ll keep me on track!

License plate adventure

When I was in Vegas, my daughter texted me a photo of a ticket that was left in the car we don’t drive often. It never had a front license plate and there’s no place to put it, anyhow.

I also have a car that I’m going to donate as soon as I can get someone to take the radio out of it. It’s sentimental, not that it’s a decent radio or anything.

I messaged my friend, asking where I should take the car for the license plate, and if he knew anyone who would come to remove the radio. He said he’d do both on his next day off. Perfect!

I rushed around to get a new replacement plate. I squeezed a trip to AAA into my schedule. I got there, waited in line, and explained what I needed. I was handed paperwork and told to bring in the old plates. Oh boy! Now I needed tools to get the old plate off.

I figured it out and got the plate and the paperwork to AAA after getting all the info together. I turned over the old plate and got the new ones. I installed the new rear one. My friend cancelled. Great.

I texted another friend about the radio and the license plate. He said he could help with the radio, but had no experience with license plates. No problem. I called my mechanic to ask what to do, expecting him to recommend someone. “Heavy duty double stick tape.” I can do that.

So the next thing in the agenda is to wait for the rain to stop, then take the paperwork and car to the police station to get it signed off. Hopefully that’ll be tomorrow.

20 books… #3

Twenty books most people lie about reading

Harry Potter series

I adored the whole series, but the later books had more substance, I think.  I have seen more people admit to not reading the series in the past few months than I have since the books were first published.

My daughter finished the series when she was in second grade. The last book took her a day and a half to read. She came up for air to eat and use the restroom. She loved them.
