I just finished book #8 on my goal to read 100 books. I read Sloppy Firsts after I saw it on this blog. It was hard for me to get into at first because it's based in high school and seemed a little young, but after I got in past the first 100 pages or so, I got hooked. I think there's four or five other books in the series and I've got them all on reserve at my local library. I can't wait until they come in! And the main character gets to college in the second or third book, so I'm hoping it will get even better. I absolutely love that I can get basically any book I want at my library, no matter how new it is, if I'm just willing to wait a little bit and be patient. I read books really quickly and like to read ALOT so I used to spend a TON of money on new books. I had this perception that the library didn't carry the new releases that I was interested in, but I was completely wrong and I couldn't be happier about it.
I'm not sure if I've blogged about this before, but I did start a new "green" habit. Another thing I can cross off my list (well I need to incorporate 5 new habits, but it's a start)! I drink lots of water, which is kind of obvious since that's all I'll allow myself to drink until July 19th, but even before I started that challenge, I drank alot. I've always had bottled water and I can taste the difference in plain tap water, so I continued to by bottled water. I definitely recycle all the bottles, but I know it would be best if I could just stop buying them altogether. So I bought a Brita Pitcher. I got the really big one so I use it at home and then I kept two of my big water bottles and just refill those from the pitcher to take to work! It's working out really well and I'm glad I can stop spending money on the pitchers and worrying about recycling them all.
By the way, does anyone know why when I upload pictures, it puts them all right next to each at the top? How do I make sure the picture goes by the text it's referring to?
