I'm actually updating. Wow.

i. 26 books?
Getting there! I just read book 19, Sophie Kinsella's Twenties Girl. It started slow for me. In fact, I felt a bit disappointed because it read like a chick bonding novel rather than the rom-com chick lit Sophie Kinsella's known for. It didn't change, despite the entry of romantic interests, it's still a girly-bonding story at heart. Thankfully, it picked up and I found myself appreciating the story as it unfolded. At some point, I couldn't put it down. Heck, I was crying buckets later on.

Anyway, just 7 books to go. Manageable, I think. In fact, I think I'll easily go over 26. It's really good that I lowered my goals, especially since I decided to stop counting graphic novels and manga. More manageable methinks, plus, I don't have to feel guilty whenever I reread old books that don't count toward my goal.

ii. on the dollie front
I actually signed up for another round of torture, sleepless nights and desperately racking my brain. Yep, TQ season again. Working on challenge 3 right now. Quite happy with how first two challenges turned out. Even if the second one shocked me because someone else did the exact same film. *headdesk*

iii. waiting for my crops to grow
Addicted to another facebook game, by playfish again, called Country Story. It's Harvest Moon, social networking version. I've tried other farming games on FB, Farm Town in particular, but I ended up quitting since I didn't like the graphics much. But Country Story delivers on the cute factor. Definitely Playfish. So I'm addicted again. *headdesk*

Twenties Girl
Of Sophie Kinsella's books, I find myself rereading Twenties Girl more compared to the others. Love the parts of the London Eye, jazz festival and the gallery.

I'm so glad you're doing TQ again - I love your work. I was on vacation for a week last week, so I didn't enter this time. And as usual, your pictures are amazing.
