There is only ONE day left in my Countdown to Delayed New Years. And while it has been fun I am still faced with the fact that I didn't get anywhere near as much done as I intended for my ORIGINAL countdown. BUT that may have been a massive failure either way.
Before getting started with today's spamming I want to link you all to a new blog I am collaborating on. I mentioned it yesterday on my out the door. The Last Blog in the Universe is a new group blog focusing on dystopian fiction.Speaking of dystoian fiction, my goal was to have almost all of my reviews up for my previous challenge participation. And I just have a feeling that won't be happening.
Tonight I have my book club meeting and I am really looking forward to it, but as I plan for it I think about how I will NOT be reviewing books in that time.
And why does blogger hate me so much and not listen to my spacing? Does anyone have any suggestions?

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva and Marg that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr.Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries!
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
1984 by George Orwell
1984 by George Orwell (audio)
Lost Bullet by Malcome Rose
Hush, Hush is Chelsea's favorite book of 2009. When I saw it I about jumped for joy!
I really want to re-read the classic dystopian novel 1984.
Lost Bullet is the second book in a futuristic dystopian society about crime scene investigation.
I started off January well by not purchasing any books in Week 1. (all 3 days) :)
Week two I purchased 14 books.
I spent $7.25, the books cover prices equaled $90.84 (some books did not have a price)
Savings = $85
