“Arthur Jelliby was a very nice young man, which was perhaps the reason why he had never made much of a politician.”

 Wherein Jack has had a long month.

 I am hiding in bed with a cup of tea. It is June, JUNE, and I've been an ice cube all day. I even went so far as to hide in my dad's coat I was so cold. I am blaming the weather because I don't want to think that I might be catching something...flu like. I have plans coming up and I don't want to be sick during them.

 I have been kind of, absent minded the last few posts I have done. (Other than the review. But you can't be absent minded while reviewing a good book.) I found out the reason why.

 Like I said, I have been doing a lot of reading lately. I was contacted to do some beta reading and some book review reading. I thought it would be fun - and it was - but it wasn't until I was buried under all the books that I realized how many I had signed up for and agreed to. I did a count last night.
 I read 15 books in the last month. 15. And not just read, I had to look for mistakes and story flow, and review some of them. So, in other words, I am looking a bit cross eyed right now.

 Not complaining though. Really. I loved them and had a lot of fun reading them. (So those who contacted me, please don't think I am complaining.) I have just decided I am going to space things better the next time I agree to anything like this. Maybe sure I don't get 15 all needing to be done in the same month.

 Now that I am done I plan to reach by 50,000 words from my Camp NaNo thing - I am trying to finish a week early because the end of June is going to be really busy. I also intend to spend a lot of time working on A Test of Loyalty, and plotting out the third book. But more on that later.

 Right now, I am going to take a moment to enjoy a Gollum dance and sing..."FREE, FREE, FREEEEEE!!! JACK IS FREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

 This also means I am returning to the blogging world. For this week. I will have to see about next week. I don't know HOW busy I will be or if I will have internet access, so we will just have to see what happens.

 Quote is from the book, The Peculiar. I just finished the second book, The Whatnot. Reviews to follow. But anyone who hasn't already, read these books. Really. Amazing books.

 ALLONS-Y!
