Wow, I did a lot of reading this month. I will say though that about a quarter of those were ebooks that were 100 pages or less. Broke down and started the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews this month and plowed through all the books they were great!
I also read two manga series (one is still ongoing) this month. Silver Diamond was excellent. I am eagerly awaiting the next volume of that one.

On the homefront, things are going well, on the job front, not so well. My position at my school was cut and I have been job hunting. I found out about two weeks ago that there was something that i had to do online to apply that I did not know about. I did not know that I had to do that as an already employee, so that has hindered my job hunting. I had been handing out resumes but the schools could not do anything with them because I had not signed up for the position online, so they ignored my resume. Sucky stuff. But still looking and teachers are supposed to go back in two weeks, I am worried.
