Read-a-Thon Update One
Well, I ended up waking up three hours after the start of the read-a-thon and began my reading day at 8am. That seemed plenty early for me and helped my chances of getting through the day in a more lively fashion! I grabbed a pillow and blanket, lit a fire and turned on some lights to help block out the dim, rainy Seattle day. I had two hours of quiet time before Z decided to come downstairs.
I just finished reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (for maybe the fifth or sixth time?) and will start Carlos Ruiz Zafon's The Prince of Mist right after I take a shower. Z has also joined in today and has read three books this morning so far. He thinks this is a great idea for a rainy day too!
I've decided not to spend much time at the computer and so won't be doing any of the mini challenges. With a kid running around and demanding food and entertainment and my ever-lingering cold, there's already enough to distract me from reading! But I appreciate your comments and I'm getting them on my phone. I'm also chatting a little bit on Twitter so come visit me there!
