Fall into Reading

Sorry for the delayed post. It was a crummy time to start a blog. I woke up Wednesday morning feeling a little nauseous and 2 hours later, began throwing up (and the other) every 5 minutes for 2 days. My temerature hovered between 100 and 102 degrees ON TYLENOL and I really thought I must be dying. My sweet brother came over after a 15 hour shift (he is a 4th year med student) with IV fluids and hope. However, due to my dehydrated veins, it took he and my RN mother 4 (yes 4 and I am tough) times to get that IV needle into my vein. My body drank the fluids at a dizzying rate and the liter was gone in an hour. I felt considerably better but have not been 100% until today....
Now on to more pleasent things, Katrina at Callapidder Days http://callapidderdays.blogspot.com/2006/09/fall-into-reading-challenge-join-me.html came up with such a fun idea to do a reading challenge.

Thanks for joining the reading challenge! Your list looks great. I went through Calm My Anxious Heart with some friends a couple years ago and it really helped me with my "issue" with worry.

Enjoy your books!
