Note from Laura:

I want to add a big POOOOF of confetti full of THANK YOU!!! to Tressa for organizing such a GREAT readathon!!!  I have really enjoyed participating in the fun. The challenges are so creative and the giveaways are soooo great!! Plus... I LOVE adding to my TBR even as I am reading thru it!  :-D   Thank you, Tressa!!  You totally rock!!

I'm heading into a crazy week of awesomeness... what with the tour for Hero launching tomorrow! and Anne Elisabeth's new novella's blitz!!!  :-D

So let me add my reading wrap up real quick... 

I read Enchanted by Alethea Kontis... and then Hero. It's rough "working" for the tours, but *sigh* I am up to the challenge. ;-)  All I can say is that I'm glad I agreed to do a tour for Alethea BEFORE I became awe-struck over her writing. So eloquent. So quotable!!  Plus... all those fairy tales crammed in there?!  Hilarious. Creative. FUN!!  Yep. I've had a good time reading.

I also started WARP, progressed on the audio of The Two Towers... read bits of future tour books... Oh, Resiliant!  I read that, too. Then I added a bunch of books to my TBR:

 - These Broken Stars
 - Charmed
 - Cold Blooded
 - The Iron Traitor
 - Rags & Bones
 - Wisdom For Everyday Living
 - Legend Unleashed
 - Fang Chronicles: Amy's Story
 - The Reluctant Bachelorette
 - Letting Go

*cough* I think I'm missing a few, too. Obviously I have a problem. I can only read a couple books a week, at the most, right now and yet, I'm acquiring them at 4x that speed. What's a reader to do, hey? I love books!!!  And I'll be signing up for the next Tackle Your TBR readathon next year, Tressa, ya better believe it!!  :-D
