I have failed with a miserable grade of 33%. I only managed to read 4 books from my list this year.
I have two reasons/excuses for not meeting my target.
- My reading time has been virtually non-existent. Life has a habit of getting busy and one of the first things to go is your leisure time when you can curl up with a good book for an hour. And then my mother introduced me to the Twilight series and I was hooked. So my limited reading time has been spent finding out if Bella was going to choose Jacob over Edward.
- I've kinda stopped writing about adoption. I wish I could say that I've stopped thinking about it, but it is a part of my life that is always there, sometimes closer to the surface then others. When things came to a close with my own reunion this past summer, I needed to step away from adoption topics for awhile. So while I still follow a lot of adoption blogs, and can't seem to watch a single TV show that doesn't have some sort of adoption topic, I couldn't bring myself to read adoption themed books.
