Whitney update- Week 2

It's been a good week-- very productive. I wanted to pat myself on the back or reward myself with chocolate until I realized how far I still have to go. Still...

Current books read: 12

I'm pretty sure that if I can keep up this pace, I'm going to finish. YAY! But I don't want to be counting my chickens before they're hatched... or pages before they're read. Anyway, I'm SO excited with the stuff that I've read so far. It's going to be pretty hard to choose when it's time to vote.

Here's an interesting article about some excellent books that WEREN'T nominated.

Also, here's an awesome giveaway on my pal Sue's blog that you won't want to miss!

I really like your blog, if you're taking suggestions I'd really like to see a new layout and maybe some pictures included in your posts.

Hey, your story of completed, unpublished manuscripts sitting in your drawer inspired me to start my own publishing business! You're definitely an author I'd like to work with. :)

Wow! Good luck with the reading! (I didn't even try). But I did buy Spare Change this morning and I'm excited to read it! :)

Thanks everyone for the encouragement!

To answer your questions:

Holly, a blog overhaul is in the long-term plans, but not something that's on the short list. I'm pretty computer illiterate and require vast amounts of assistance!

And Charly, I will email you as soon as I get a chance! I'm still trying to dig my way out of my post-vacation email pit.
