  1. Aw, I love that picture!
    But like seriously! 20 books already! I'm still working on my Stephen King collection. It's almost 1000 pages! That should totally count for more than one. ;P Really though, I need to get off of Netflix. Lol!

    1. I was scouring my Pinterest board looking for something reading-related lol

      I think your 1000 pages counts as three books, at least. So long! I'm reading China Dolls now, but I'm also in the last part of the novella, so writing time lol

  3. I love the cartoon!

    20 Books and it is only the beginning of April - that is seriously very impressive.

    Lately, I've been heavily leaning on humorous books to keep me from whacking people on the trains during my rush-hour commute. For example, Inherent Vice, Food by Jim Gaffigan, and History of the World in 6 Glasses.

      What's History of the World in 6 Glasses about?
