It’s summer time!  Do you know what that means?  (In all actuality, that doesn't mean a lot about what’s to come.)  However, that means that I've graduated from college.  I’m done.  No more tests and late-night papers.  And do you know what that means? 

During college, books and I have been on a on-and-off-again relationship.  I would read for a break but couldn't read during school.  I could read for the summer but couldn't read when the end of August began.  It’s that time again.  Books and me are officially back on and we are here to stay.  I know, while I’m away at college, my blog begins to develop dust in its corners and new material is scarce.  That’s about to change. 

I started organizing by using the tool, Trello.  Trello is an organization site that can be used in a variety of ways.  If you don’t know what it’s about, you should check it out.  However, this site helps me keep track of everything I need to do to keep The Bucket List up to date.  I’m going to BEA again this year and will try to bring you the latest news on my adventures.  The Bucket List, in celebration of my graduation, got a makeover.  Do you like it?  I’m planning some awesome features to begin in the coming months.  Here are some of the buttons for the upcoming features:

Stay tuned and happy reading!

Questions for you:
What are your plans for the summer?

Do you like The Bucket List’s new design?

You might have noticed that The Bucket List's template does not look the same as usual.  Here, at The Bucket List, we are current undergoing some major changes.  Please be patient.  It will look awesome when it is finished.

Until then...

Happy reading!
