Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon
UPDATE ONE: Well, this might just be the least amount of reading I've ever gotten done during a readathon - at least so far! I did finish The Little Stranger and have gotten a good start on Thomas Jefferson's Creme Brulee. But it is slow going so I turned to Don't Let's Go To The Dogs Tonight which I've been reading as my "oops I forgot to bring my book up to bed" read and am really enjoying. Next I'm off to cheerlead for a bit.
UPDATE TWO: Yeah, well, the reading? Not so much. But I did go do about an hour and a half of cheerleading and completed one mini-challenge. I Heart Monster challenged us to get outside and take a break (which, let's be honest, is about all I've been doing, except the outside part). I went outside and harvested sage, rosemary, lavender and chives and pulled the annuals all out of their pots in the backyard. My house smells great now with all of those fresh herbs in vases waiting for me to have time to tie it up to dry! Now I've got to make a pumpkin cake and get it in the oven. Then I'm back to reading...although I'm not sure what's going to grab my fancy next.
UPDATE THREE: Goodness, we had a lovely dinner with good friends but between the getting ready and the time we spent at their house, seven hours passed. I'm back to reading - still plugging away with Thomas Jefferson's Creme Brulee, although, honestly, it's really not a good choice for a readathon book. In fact, nonfiction, readathons and I really don't mix well. My goal at this point, though, is to finish it, do some cheerleading and call it a night.
