Starting Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon

I'm at the hair salon but officially starting the readathon while I get my hair done. I plan to finish The Outliers and The Revisionists by 8:00 tomorrow morning. I have about 175 pages to read in The Outliers and 350 in The Revisionists. Wish me luck!

I can't figure out how to add links on this Blogger app so here's the URL for the readathon: http://24hourreadathon.com.

I forgot I'm suppose to answer questions so...

I'm reading from the salon this morning then from home the rest if the day and night.

Three random facts about me:
- I'm a mom of two kids.
- I'm a marketing writer and editor.
- I'm old enough to have to be at the salon getting the gray hairs covered up!

I have two books to read in the next 24 hours, as I mentioned above.

My goal is just to finish those two books.

My advice for those who are carrying on with normal life while doing the readathon, as I am, is to carry your book with you everywhere and use those little moments to read throughout the day.

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'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.
