April Readings and Avon Walk Updates

This month I was super busy with work, but still managed to knock out several books towards my goal of 100 books in 2011.

First, my Avon Breast Cancer Training Walks have been going really well.  I'm walking 15 miles a week, and taking Sundays off to rest.  I am also actively fundraising using my website. 

While the training blog is not active, I'll start updating there as soon as Avon opens up that blog.  This is my third year of training and walking.  I know this is a difficult journey, but I choose to help fight breast cancer for my friends and family that have been affected.  If you'd like to donate please go to the Avon website here.  

Reading this month has been a challenge.  Work keeps me busy, but June should be the month I catch up on my reading.  Below are the books I've read.  If you order a book from this blog, the proceeds will be donated to the Avon Breast Cancer In it to End It campaign.

Deja Demon: The Days and Nights of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom (Kate Connor, Demon Hunter) 3 of 5 stars

Kick 4 of 5 stars

Fire (Graceling)4 of 5 stars
