From the Editor's Desk: Wait you mean you want reviews?!

What I am Currently Reading:
I am almost finished with the Thermopylae  book. Right now, I am in appendix I. Usually I don't read the preface or appendix, but there is such a wealth of information, that I really couldn't help myself. I am also reading The Enemy, in an attempt to clean up my currently reading shelf on Goodreads. I started it, but obligations (reading and life) got in the way. Plus I was suffering through a bout of book ADD. 

What I will be reading:
I honestly don't know what I will be reading next. I wanted to read the books on my currently reading shelf before trying to tackle anymore books, but I was offered an opportunity to participate in a tour for a book that I really want to read so I couldn't pass it up. I guess if I had more of a structure than I wouldn't take so long reading one book, on the other hand, I'm trying to relax the pressure in my reading and reviewing. So not knowing could be a very good thing. 

What I wish I was reading right now:
I guess this isn't about what I wish I was reading, but doing. I wish that i was posting more reviews. I have some written and ready to be typed up, but I keep forgetting about them. So, that is my goal this week- get three reviews posted. Some of them are long overdue, and some are recent waiting on me to finalize my thoughts.  But I will do them, please don't let me forget.
