A Fall Type Day..

My reading is going slowly, which I don't really mind since it's a book I wouldn't mind how long it was! (Inkdeath)

I've been working my butt off uploading and replacing all the photo's for my blog from when I began in Oct. 2005 until about a month ago when aol informed us that aol was deleting all aol journals and web space where photo's were uploaded to.

Actually, I am doing rather well at this.. I began at the beginning (duh) and have worked my way up to the beginning of Feb 2008! I have uploaded about 1,700 pics and replaced them.  The worst part is going in the html of each post to replace the new address for each photo.. time consuming and makes for a sore neck and shoulders each day .. I wake early, sometimes 5 am and work on it until 9 or 10 am when I finally poop out and just can't stand to do one more post !  I've deleted a few posts but not many.  Mostly when I get extremely tired and come up against a post with more than 10 pictures in one post!

To say that I will be more than happy when this is over is a gross understatement!!!

I will admit it's even more tiresome because of this head cold that I can't seem to get rid of.. *sigh*

Today, now that my "work hours" are over (don't want to see another old post today) I am watching  blogs of people doing the "24 hour read-a-thon"

Other than reading their on going blogs about their reading my only contribution to their great strides to read more than normal in a 24 hr period would be for me to post a photo of my latest book porn.....  taaa daaaa....

To be honest there's not a book here I could finish in 24 hours at the rate I read! lol

I think it's time I take a break from the computer and do a little of my own reading in Inkdeath.  I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Love your picture today. I moved my journal to blog but not to my regular journal. I looked down some of the entry's and saw some pictures but I could sit only a minute to look so I have no idea if many were saved ot not. Anyway I have them all on an external hard drive. Have a good afternoon Pat. Hugs, Helen

That's some lovely book porn :D

You really are doing great when it comes to replacing the photos...more than halfway through! But I can very well imagine how relieved you will be when it's all done.

PS: I wanted to thank you for your supportive comments during the Read-a-thon. They were very much appreciated!

You've really done an AMAZING Job, Pat! Already in February, 2008...BRAVO TO YOU, MY DEAR!
And I think you deseerve a rest...! It's hard to get rid of a cold when you aren't really getting much rest....!
But, it looks like you will make it by AOL's deadline at the end of October! Hooray!

That Clara Bow book looks great. I have always admired her and yet know very little about her.

As you know I loved Here, There Be Dragons and am looking forward to the second in the series. Indigo King isn't out in the UK yet (I think it's due in January) so I will have to wait a little while longer. Also I prefer paperbacks so an even longer wait sigh. Enjoy your new stash.
