Burnt Out

Life has been so busy for me. I'm participating in National Novel Writing Month, trying to write something that doesn't make people throw up. It's going slowly with three kids in tow and while I'm doing intense job searching right now. I'm going to try to have a job and hit the 30K mark by next Sunday. That's about 5K words a day. I can do it, I can do it...
A few weeks ago I signed up for about 10 reading challenges. Some of those challenges are: The Jewish Literature Reading Challenge, Triple8 hosted by 3M, Russian Reading, Young Adult Reading, and Just4thehellofit hosted by Dana. I think these will be the main ones that I end up participating in.
Right now, I'm a little burnt out on reading. I'm trying to find a book that can keep my interest and I haven't found one yet. The last book I read was The gifts of the body by Rebecca Brown. It's a literary novel about a home health care worker and her various patients. It's a short book whose language is so simple and moving. A great book that I recommend to anyone. So now I'm searching for a good book. I might have to start on my challenges for next year.

Try The Importance Of Being Ernest. Right length, right laughs, and a classic written by a hunk. Hello!
