Day 2 wasn't the greatest for me. As I was running out the door, late for work (as always), I grabbed my phone and the nearest book and ran out the door. On my way to work I realized that I grabbed the book I had finished the night before. Now I didn't have a book to read during my lunch hour, not only was this a pretty lame as I announced on Titter, but as Reading Angel pointed out "That was a serious fail!! And a general reading fail all together! I hate not having a" Thanks for that! I did find another book to read from my department's Reading Room, so not all was lost and the end of day 2, I have read 2 books and am starting my third (the book I that I meant to grab when running out the door!)

    Thanks for hosting this wonderful giveaway! :)

  9. Mine turned out rather short, a lot of interesting book titles on my bookshelves are in German and I had a hard time arranging my books into something that made sense, I'll have to try this again with some other books.

  10. I've never done one of these before. It's fun except now I've made a mess out of all my books. *sigh* It really just gives me another excuse to reorganize.
