My Thoughts on Today
I am so happy with today's results! I got exactly what I was hoping to read and even a little more which resulted in my highest page count to date! I'm hoping to finish two more books this last day which will far surpass my original goal! So happy that I had a lot of free time this week!

5 Book Challenge
Hosted by: Falling Down the Book Hole

"It is 11:00 PM on a Sunday night. You are laying in bed thinking about all of the things you must do the next day. Tasks of the coming days consume your thoughts and while your mind is somewhere else you are caught off guard by a flash in the sky that is followed by a large wailing screech that pierces the air and shatters your bedroom window. Slowly you move to the window and what you see catches your breathe and causes you to stumble back a few steps. The aliens (at least you think they are aliens) have began to enter the city and destroy everything that is in their path. Through the window your view is consumed with destruction, screaming people and large flames that are dancing across the city at a fast pace. You notice that the creatures are heading in your direction and you realize you probably have about fifteen minutes before they reach your home. That means you have only about ten minutes to gather your belongings and escape before you are caught in the attack from the aliens invading the city."

"Given the short amount of time you are only able to take 5 books with you. What books would you pick to take with you as you escape and prepare for the end of the world. Would you choose books that would help you survive in the post-apocalyptic world ,books for pleasure that would make you happy and take you to a fantasy reality or books that you can’t live without?"

Considering the fact that I have no books that would help me survive I would definitely take books for pleasure! It would take me next to no time to decide because there are books that I read and immediately want to reread. I am going to cheat a bit and list 7 because they are a series and there's no way I would leave one behind!

I just checked out A Passion Most Pure from the library. I'm glad to hear it's such a good series that you would take it into a post-apocalyptic world. :) Now I'm really looking forward to reading it!
