Today #insixwords: Family time and a little reading.
Things I learned on Twitter: You know, you'd *think* that I'd read more on the weekend than I do during the week, but it never seems to happen that way. Which is a little odd, but it's a thing, I guess. So anyway. TWITTER CHAT. I had fun. As always. The darn time just flies by on that, doesn't it?

Final Thoughts: Another week, another read-a-thon. Which is AWESOME because you guys make it so awesome. In case you're wondering, that's my way of saying THANK YOU to everyone who participated.

(And now I have to crack down and get those reviews written so I'm caught up again!)
