My Reading List: 2011

I have a confession to make: I love reading. Love. Love. Love.

I also love setting goals.

This winning combination has led me to an annual tradition of aiming to read 100 books per year. This will be my fourth year setting (and achieving, I hope!) this lofty number. To get to 100, this typically means that I start about 115, and don’t finish about 15 of them. I keep a running list of the books and what I think of them in my journal, and this year I’m going to put them online as well (to bore you all!). If you read my other blogs, you know this is copied there as well;)

Here goes…

    My local giant eagle will double cnpuoos up to 99 cents. So my question is if i have a coupon for 1.50 off something will it only be a 1.50 off or is it 1.50 off and another 99 cents off because they double it?Or will then only double a coupon 99 cents off or under?Sorry I know its explained a little confusing Im just new to using cnpuoos.K thanks
