Okay, so I started “Woodrose Mountain” and then was distracted by the pile of historical romances on my night stand.  So I also started “The Taming of a Scottish Princess” by Karen Hawkins and “A Night Like This” by Julia Quinn.

Thursday
Number of books I've read today:
1
Total number of books I've read:
2
Books: 
Finished “The Taming of a Scottish Princess” this afternoon, I’m about halfway through “A Night Like This” and about 1/3 of the way through “Woodrose Mountain”.  Also started reading “Royal Street” by Suzanne Johnson  Hoping to start a couple of the other books on my list before the weekend gets into full swing.

Friday
Number of books I've read today:
0
Total number of books I've read:
2
Books: 
Well I haven’t added anything to my finished list today.  I did get a good chunk of the way through “Woodrose Mountain” it’s a good book so far.. a bit heavier then what I would normally pick up.  I also read a bit of “Royal Street” which is a great book so far!  Didn’t get a chance to read more on “A Night Like This” – but I am hoping to tomorrow!

Saturday
Number of books I've read today:
0
Total number of books I've read:
2
Books: 
So, yeah.  I didn’t get any reading done today.  Work was hectic, we had family up.. Just didn’t happen!

Sunday
Number of books I've read today: 1
Total number of books I've read:
3
Books:  I picked up “Driving Mr. Dead” this afternoon.  It’s a companion book to "The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires” which is a bookclub selection I am reading for the first week of September.  I hate reading things out of order, so I figured I should read it before I tackled the bookclub selection.  I did also make some good headway in “Woodrose Mountain” and “Royal Street”.  Unfortunately I didn’t get as much read as I would have liked!  I did knock 3 more books of my TBR list though – which I am happy about!  Next time I think I won’t put as many books on my goal list… LOL
