Read-a-Thon Update


I'm slowing down. I did so well all week but these last few days have been light reading for a read-a-thon! I had figured the weekend would be easier but it's proving to be harder to read on the weekend than during the week. Anyway, here's what I've accomplished for the Frightful Fall read-a-thon so far:

Finished the last 167 pages of What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
Finished the last 115 pages of Before the Last All Clear by Ray Evans
Read all of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Read 177 pages of Beyond the Darkness by Leonard D. Hilley II
Read five children's books with the kids:
- Sylvester and the Magic Pebble by William Steig
- Life on Earth: The Story of Evolution by Steve Jenkins
- Tsunami! by Kimiko Kajikawa
- I Broke My Trunk by Mo Willems
- Pooh Goes Visiting by A.A. Milne

Today, I hope to finish Beyond the Darkness. I'd love to read more for the read-a-thon but I just don't know if that's going to happen. We'll see... You can see my daily page count over on the right sidebar.

I've also completed three mini challenges: Zombie Apocalypse, Book Title Sentence, and Suspenseful Paragraph.

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 …

I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Mundie Moms are hosting the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop in honor of Independence Day in the United States, and I've decided to participate.

To stick with the theme of Independence Day, I'm doing what I did last year for this hop:

I'm giving away a book of your choice that is written by an author from the United States.
It can be any genre as long as the author is from the United States. You choose the book (up to $15), and I'll order it and have it mailed to you from Book Depository.

The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a safe and fun holiday!
