Summary

You can’t program love…or can you?

Kayleigh Renshaw has come up with the idea for a brilliant “compatibility app,” a new kind of matchmaking software. All she needs is a programmer to help her bring the idea to market…and she knows exactly who she wants. But Niall Walsh—a code whiz and her former best friend—has been avoiding her since he returned from Afghanistan. In spite of their history, and some sparks that go beyond friendship, he’s proving reluctant…. Is it her, or is something darker holding him back?

Wrap-Up for the Falling for Autumn Read-a-Thon

Falling for Autumn Read-a-Thon Banner
This Read-a-Thon was hosted by A Cup of Coffee and a Book. You can find out all about it here.

This week was even busier than I thought it would be, so I didn't even come close to reaching all the goals I set. You can check out my update for the first three days here and for the next three here. Today was also really busy and I didn't get even a tiny bit of reading in. A rather poor way to end, but it is what it is. Here's how I did overall:

My goals were:
1. Read at least four books that aren't for tours (read two)
2. Read at least two sequels (read one)
3. Visit at least ten of the other participants (didn't even come close)
4. Keep track of my page count (yes - This I did)
5. Participate in at least two challenges (I got this one too with the two challenges I did)

How did I do for the official challenges from the host? Here we go:
* Read a total of four (4) books; (read 3 and some parts - so close)
* To read at least 150 pages per day; (missed this one the last two days)
* To read a book with an autumnal colour on the cover (red, orange, brown, gold); (yes - Lizzy & Jane counts)
To read a book with a male protagonist; (yes - Into the Still Blue counts)
* To read the first or last book in a series; (Into the Still Blue would count for this too, but I don't know if that's allowed - to use the same book for two different challenges)
I ended up reading 1,356 pages and finishing these books:
Lizzy & Jane Tried and True (Wild at Heart, #1) Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky, #3)

These are the books I read partials of - two of which I'm still reading:
Star of Deliverance Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3) Prudence Pursued


Did you participate in this RaT? If so, how did you do?

Summary

Through the years, the General Authorities and general officers of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have shared accounts of poignant personal experiences in their general conference addresses. In this collection, more than fifty inspiring true stories told in general conference talks have been gathered into a single volume.

Similar in style and format to President Thomas S. Monson’s book Consider the Blessings: True Accounts of God’s Hand in Our Lives, the book features beautiful full-color photography to illustrate each story. A perfect resource for individuals and families, the collection includes such classics as “Lift Where You Stand,” by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf; “Run to Higher Ground,” by Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin; “You Stupid Cow!” by Elder Mervyn B. Arnold; and “A Heavy Load,” by Elder David A. Bednar. Drawn from more than three decades of general conference talks, these true accounts of life-changing experiences will touch hearts and strengthen testimonies with examples of gospel principles in action.

Royalty proceeds from this book will benefit the Church’s General Missionary Fund.

Contributors to this volume include past and present members of the First Presidency, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Quorum of the Seventy, presiding bishopric, general Relief Society presidency, general Young Women presidency, and general Primary presidency.
