2010 Reading Resolutions Challenge Update

Jenny Loves to Read posted an update on our New Years Resolution. I'm thrilled with my progress in my reading challenges, I've done a little of everything. About the only challenge that is coming slowly is the 345 challenge. I think the most enjoyable part is the fact that my young son is so enjoying discussing these books with me, and in awe that his mother reads. Don't know who he thought taught him, and enforced Silent Sunday's.* All my godchildren are readers as well, and I'm working on their offspring. The only challenge I'm not doing well with is my walking, I've been ill and just haven't kept up with the 2 miles a day challenge. But, you know the old saying, "no matter how long winter is, Spring is sure to follow,". Check out everyone else's progress and post about yours at Jenny Loves to Read.
* Silent Sunday's are Sundays that we unplugged all devices, including I Pod, computers, T.V., Gameboys etc. And READ. My husband, their father, often worked nights and Sunday's were always a challenge to keep quiet. I got the idea from a favorite movie. The Trouble with Angels.

I love The Trouble With Angels! The swimming test scene is my favorite, but there are so many great scenes in that movie. :)
