    How do you know this about the box of tissues? šŸ˜‰

  2. @maksbestfriend – Ran out of tissues with the last book… you never know when you’ll need one next! šŸ˜‰

  3. Currently on pg 249 and hoping to be finished and ready for discussion 2 soon – timeline might experience a slight shift.

  8. … ok wait, we need to finish before I post the final questions. THEN we’ll discuss. How’s that?

  9. maksbestfriend says:

    Well dang, just when I think that I am caught up to you, you are 50 pages ahead of me. I will work on getting to 299 but I am not sure that it will be tonight that’s for certain. I am working on it!

  10. @maksbestfriend – I had some time to read during CG’s cello lesson tonight, so I’m on pg 317. Seems to be going in slow motion right now… I almost fell asleep! Where are you?

    Can you tell that I LOVE paperback swap? šŸ˜‰

  12. I finished reading book #34 and loved it! Where are you now? Questions soon to be posted, but no rush.

    As for the books you mention:

    Angels, by Marian Keyes – I read this one awhile ago & liked it.
    Love Walked In, by Marisa de los Santos – Got this.
    Do Me, Do My Roots, by Eileen Rendahl – Also have this one.

    You are really getting into paperback swap, aren’t you? For some reason, my books aren’t swapping as quickly as expected. But that’s ok, I have so many to read as it is. šŸ™‚

    Hi! I am on page 325! Getting there! I ahould be done tomorrow! Yes I am loving the swap thing, and anything that keeps me from paying retail right now is a good thing!

    Watching the Blazers/Rockets basketball game, trying to read, failing miserably!

  14. Reading and basketball never mix, @maksbestfriend! Hope you’ll catch up tomorrow, though…?

  15. maksbestfriend says:

    If you saw all the things we are trying to get done tonight you would think our livingroom is a disaster area! šŸ˜‰ But yes, between reading in bed tonight and tomorrow, I will finish! Sorry to be the slow poke!

  16. maksbestfriend says:

    I finished it tonight! Loved it! Let’s talk and what’s the next book in line? Any idea?
