So how is it going?

Well it isn’t going that bad but it isn’t going that great either and when the twitter party for this challenge rolled around Laura and I both totally forgot. We would love to know if you are all interested in doing the twitter parties still?

  1. I couldn’t make the twitter party and only later realized it hadn’t taken place. I have a column in tweetdeck for the hashtag, but forget to check regularly. I’ll try to use it more. I think it would be nice to have a place to cheer each other one as I am sure we all have one of those goals that don’t go quite as well as we would like.

    You’re doing pretty good with most fo your goals and it’s great to see the progress you’re making. You’re doing better than me for netgalley, I am at 67% at the moment. And you’re doing great with those blogging goals and writing your reviews on time! Too bad about those two personal goals, but there’s still time to do those!

    • I used to keep track of EVERY book I had but instead I now just keep track of the books I have from Netgalley , Edelweiss and Publisher/Review. This way I know what I have and when I need to read them. I would be happy to send you my spreadsheet to try out yourself , just email me at Limabean74@aol.com and I will send it over, just let me know if you use excel or numbers. The set up takes a little bit of time but once you have all your current books in it will be easy to keep up.
