My life has been a complete zoo for WEEKS now, and I’m so excited to have a Saturday with nothing scheduled for our whole family except a much-needed haircut for me (YAY!), and the 24-Hour Read-a-Thon, a totally awesome excuse for me to REST and READ and not do housework and try to avoid anything else I don’t want to deal with. My goal for the Read-a-Thon is to finish at least one of the books I’ve got “in progress,” a total of four of them, all print books, which is very unusual for me. I usually have one audiobook, and one or maybe two print books, so if I can finish one or two of these, it will feel like good progress. Kafka is the priority there, because the book group discussion is next Tuesday evening.
Two of the books in the pile below are NOT books in progress. I finished reading Great House by Nicole Krauss almost two weeks ago, and since I got it from LibraryThing, I need to write a review, and soon — so I might take a break from reading to write that review. The other unread is A Dog Called Kitty by Bill Wallace, which my older son loved, and my younger son must like it as well because he’s been bothering me to read it for several weeks now. It would be a great change of pace if I feel I need to dial things down for a while.
No great expectations, just some quality reading time, some peace and quiet, and finish at least one of the books I’ve already started. Happy Read-a-Thon, everyone!
