Readathon Update #1

Just a very quick update since I hardly have time to read so don't want to take a lot of time writing!

I started reading at 8:30am and was interrupted for the first time at about 8:40am. I had expected to be interrupted a lot and didn't expect to read much during the day. I've carried my book around all day and only managed to read 60 pages from 8:30am to 5pm. I'd say I spent a total of 1 hour reading, in 5-10 minute increments.

Then at 5:15, I sat down with my daughter and read for 30 minutes. I think we got through 6-7 books (I wrote them down and will document everything at the end). So that was good.

I hope to sit down to read around 8pm and not stop for several hours. We'll see how that goes! Wish me luck!!

  2. Okay, my cheer is definitely not that creative but I think you are doing a great job if you are even getting that much reading done with little ones around. Good luck when they go to sleep and maybe you'll be able to read uninterrupted :)

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
