As you can see I was a busy little bee. I really got into the rhythm of reading and scheduling posts.  June is pretty much all planned out except for the few posts that can’t be written ahead of time. I’m super ahead in my Goodreads 2012 reading challenge. I’ve read 60 books toward my 80 book goal. At the rate I’m going, I’ll reach the goal in a month or two. I’ll probably update it to 100 books. I did that pretty easily last year so I shouldn’t have a problem doing it again this year.

What’s in store for June? Not a whole lot. I’m finally going to read Ender’s Game for BHA. That should be fun. My 1 year blogoversary is in June. That’s pretty exciting. I had no idea this blog would last this long and that I would have real people reading it. My birthday will be later in the month so hopefully I can get some new books or bookstore gift cards. 😀

How was May for you? Any plans for June?
