Starting the Spring's Serenity Read-a-Thon

Well, the Spring's Serenity Read-a-Thon Starting Line is up and I've started reading. I actually read for about a half hour in the wee hours of the morning when I wasn't able to sleep, but decided to wait until now to put up my starting post.

I'm working this week, and I have some obligations in the evenings, but I still plan to fit in some extra reading time. I hope to finish Hotel Angeline and read Pharos Objective by David Sakmyster. That's the plan. If I can get through those two, I'll be happy. If I finish them early in the week, I'll also try to read Blood Trust by Eric Van Lustbader.

Speaking of Eric Van Lustbader, I'm hosting a mini challenge for this read-a-thon, and the winner will get a copy of his book Last Snow. Click here to enter the mini-challenge!


  1. Good luck with your reading.

  2. Good luck with the read-a-thon! I'm one who doesn't like to read ahead, but I will be joining in your mini-challenge as I read!

  3. Great reading plan! Hope you have a fun and successful read-a-thon!

  4. Good luck with the read-a-thon! I'm hoping to finish 3 books this week, but aiming for five. Have fun!

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 …
