Dewey's Read-a-thon: Hour 12 Update
We're at the halfway point, and I've lost my partner in reading to her other social commitments. Before she had to abandon the read-a-thon, Kate read for another hour, which makes 2 for the day. It's not as good as her 7-hour total from last year, but better than no reading at all!
I considered doing Kirsten's Picture-It mini-challenge but figured that my reading spot was not exciting enough to photograph. Just as I was having this thought, my wonderful husband and older daughter Julia showed up at home with a lovely spring bouquet, with a card attached that said, "Congratulations on your read-a-thon." Even though they don't understand why I'd want to spend the entire day reading, they're quite indulgent about my read-a-thon activities. So now I have a reading spot worth photographing for the mini-challenge!
Since my last update, I finished Linwood Barclay's No Time for Goodbye, an excellent thriller that was very hard to put down. I also did some house chores while listening to the final 1.5 hours of an audiobook version of Jane Eyre. I'm having a hard time deciding which of my books to read next, but I think I'll go enjoy the excellent supper my husband had prepared before making my selection.
