Update #2 -- my own mini read-a-thon

Saturday, April 10, 2010


Ok, I made it home from my morning/early afternoon appointment and was able to fit in an hour of reading. I finished about 54 pages of My Fair Lazy. Unfortunately didn't get to do any other reading earlier.... I set the alarm and woke up at 9:15 am, after most of you had officially started. Then my dear hubby made breakfast, I took a shower and got ready to go. Drove far away to my appointment, met with clients for 2 hours, drove all the way back, read for an hour, and here I am now!

Next up is dinner with the parents, SO, I will be reading just a little more here, then on the way there (assuming my husband agrees to drive) and then I'll have another break. I assume I'll be back in time to join back in around hours 13 or 14 and participate until hour 20... but I'll have to get to bed since I have another appointment in the morning!

That's very impressive that you are doing your own Read-a-Thon with all you have going on today (and tomorrow!) I have a jam-packed weekend too, so I'm cheerleading unofficially ...

Happy Read-a-Thoning and hope your appointment goes well tomorrow.

The reading will stop
Tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
your book count will be higher
Just keep thinking about tomorrow
all the great books you will have to talk about
with your blogger friends
If you get blurred or sore, or sleepy
Just stick up your chin
and grin
and say
My TO BE READ PILE, Tomorrow
will be smaller than it was before
and your spirits will soar
because then TOMORROW, TOMORROW You can go shopping TOMORROW at Amazon and BUY SOME MORE!
