Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon Wrap-Up

WWRAT

This weekend, I participated in the Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon, which was hosted by Bex at Kindle Fever and April at My Shelf Confessions. It went from Friday through Sunday. Unfortunately, I got a headache on Saturday night so didn't do a lot of reading on Sunday, but I still managed to read quite a bit.

I had hoped to finish The Revisionists by Thomas Mullen, but I ended up picking up another book to read simultaneously, so I didn't end up finishing it. I did read 283 pages of the book, so that was good. And I read 124 pages of Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, which means I read a total of 407 pages during the read-a-thon. I had hoped to read 600+ and I would have if I didn't get that headache. But I am pretty happy with how much I did end up reading.

I also participated in a couple challenges, including Creep Me Out at Kindle Fever, Read in Pictures at The Book Monsters.

It was a fun read-a-thon, but I wish I had been able to participate in more of the challenges and Twitter chats. I just had more going on this weekend than I had expected.

  1. I've never tried a read-a-thon - things are usually just too busy around here! Maybe when the kids are grown and out of the house lol!

    It does sound like fun....(sorry about your headache).

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 …
