Out of Town

I've been out of town taking care of my older sister since she had surgery last Friday; which hasn't given me much time to read even though I have a good 10+ books checked out. The books I read before and while I'm here I won't review cause I don't even think I could write decent reviews about them. I'm just so focused on taking care of her now, that I haven't found much time to read or review the books I've read.

I'll be officially back at my own house this Friday, so the books I read once I'm home I'll review. I can't wait to get home, honestly. Miss my own bed and my pets a ton!

I'm so close to hitting 100 books for this year, then I'll have completed one of my goals this year. Its soo exciting!!! I've already decided what the 100th book will be, but for now I won't say. :)

Til Friday!!!

100 Book Goal List Updated (Starting at 86)

Thought I should make a new list of the books I've read this year starting at 86. So here are the books I've read this year. Just 12 more books to go before 2010 is over, by the looks of my pace right now, I should finish in time, I hope!

86. Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins

87. Ecstasy Unveiled -Larissa Ione
88. Firelight -Sophie Jordan

89. Pretty Little Liars - Sara Shepard
90. Flawless - Sara Shepard
91. Clockwork Angel - Cassandra Clare
92. Linger - Maggie Stiefvater
93. The Iron Daughter - Julie Kagawa
94. Halo - Alexandra Adornetto
95. The Shifter - Janice Hardy
96. At Grave's End - Jeaniene Frost
97. Scars - Cheryl Rainfield
98. Kiss of Midnight - Lara Adrian
99. Destined For An Early Grave - Jeaniene Frost
100. Once a Witch - Carolyn MacCullough


Tons of changes going on here!

1) A new blog name. From Library Whore to Miss Check Out. I love both names but I thought Miss Check Out would be more appropriate.

2) Simple layout. I looked at a ton of other book bloggers blogs and took suggestions from their pages. For example: "Currently Reading" / "Rating System" . Also another blog I subscribed to had this cool, little widget; so I made my own and called it Checked Out.

3) Future changes? I like the layout for now, but I would like one with a little more design to it. So I'll keep looking for simple but cute layouts. Also I don't like how the boxes are so big on "Currently Reading" , I wonder if there is some way I could change it. I hate the empty space there. (Already found a layout I'm very fond of!)

4) I should actually read something to blog about, right? The year is almost over and I need to finish reading 100 books or I'll fail my New Year's Resolution Goal!!!! Which reminds me, I need to update my list of books I've read this year. Maybe make a new post for it, or just take the last couple of books and then continue on a new post...

5) Getting subscribers. I need to get me some more readers, tehehe. I wouldn't mind having some people nit picking my blog, as long as they are nice about it. I could use all the help with this, though its only for fun. I'm not going to take this extremely serious, its a hobby not a job. So comments on what I could improve are welcome.
