Let's Do This Thing!!! Read-aThon updates.
Hey, everyone! It's the Dewey's 24 hour Read-a-Thon! Like you didn't know. ;)
After a late start getting up, cause I LOVE to sleep, I've put only a measly 100 pages of Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson under my belt before I had to eat. So two yummy pieces of double fiber french toast with sugar free, metallic tasting syrup later, I'm going to read a bit more before my soccer game. I do need to vacuum my floors so that might get done too.
Well, here it is just after 3:00 and I managed to finish Speak. Yay for me! I did vacuum my floor and I exercised while I watched my soccer game. (they won!4-0) I've even showered...hmmm, maybe I'm missing the whole point of a read-a-thon. Oh well. I'm afraid I wasn't as prepared as I wanted to be so I have to make a quick trip to the store but then I shall be buckling down. I hope to finish at least one more book and start a few more.
Well, after a trip to the store for the makings of a pizza, I got back to reading. I meant to read a little from a few books but got totally wrapped up, and finished, The Sweet, Terrible, Glorious Year I Truly, Completely Lost It by Lisa Shanahan. I LOVED it and just had to finish it.
So...I finished two books and am planning on reading some more before I go to sleep, yep, sorry but it has to be done. I've got church early in the morning. I'm thinking I'll read some of Crave and get started on The Weight of Silence. I've had fun and even though I didn't read straight through. I'm kinda glad I didn't; I think those breaks helped me stay awake. ;) Happy reading!
