Update #3: book two complete :)

Personal update: hahah!! you all are so sweet. If you only knew that even the caffeine from dark chocolate will make my hands shake (it isn't like a tremor or anything, just if I try to hold them steady they will slightly shake). Thanks for taking care of me though!!! You are all so great!! worries girl, I am not sick or anything. I am sorry to have worried you :)

Many of you are wondering why I am at a coffee shop, that it would be impossible for you to concentrate at one. If you had two boys, ages 2.5 and 4.5 you would be able to concentrate anywhere better than at home :) Haha....I have become way better at concentrating since I had them.

Thanks so much to all you who are diehardedly (another invented word!!) cheering me on! You are hard core and awesome thanks so much to you all for keeping me in the game!

As far as books go: I have finished my second!!!! Yah! Beasts of No Nation is Complete. I am so glad to be done with it. I will try to pick something silly now to balance it out.
I am going to try Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris. Have you read it?? :)

I have now earned $ 62 for clean water worldwide!!!
Plus trish is adding in $5 for every book she finishes!! That brings the clean water total to: $67.00 so far! (make sure you go cheer her on!!)

Where will the dinero ($) go? It will go to an organization I have become quite passionate about. I will be giving it to Living Water International an amazing organization funding the building of wells all over the world in developing nations.
(there is still time to sponsor me!!!)

You are awesome Bethany! Actually my hands get really shaky from caffiene to so I get what you're saying and I do love my coffee.

Yup, I guess if you were home the boys would want your attention and you'd get no reading done so yes, makes sense to read at the coffee shop.

Shana from Literarily reviewed Holidays on Ice and she loved it. I think it's probably a good pick for you right now.

Keep it up girl!
