Readathon Update #3

I finished Little Bee! Yay! What a great book. I read 226 pages in that book today. I also read several kids' books with my kids, as I spent a total of an hour reading with them today:

A Squirrel's Tale
The Adventures of Cliff Hanger
The Berenstain Bears and the Big Spelling Bee
My Pet Turtle
Apples, Apples
Dooby Dooby Moo
The Fairest of the Fall
Cat the Cat Who is That
Map in the Mystery Machine
Where's My Mummy
Skeleton Meets Mummy
Fall Leaves Fall

And a chapter from a Star Wars book that's in my son's room so I can't check the title right now!

I had every intention of reading another book tonight. I'm awfully tired though so not sure I can do it. I've read for a total of 4 1/2 hours, which is not much for a read-a-thon, but it's a pretty big accomplishment for a mom who didn't put aside any of the regular everyday activities. If I do end up reading more, I'll let you know in the morning. I just dread that 7am wake up call from the kids...

Good luck to all of you who are still reading! I hope you make it to the end!

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 …
