High Summer Read-a-Thon - Starting Line


This week, I'm participating in the High Summer Read-a-Thon hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading. It's a laid-back read-a-thon, which is the kind I like!

I actually started reading yesterday. So far, I've finished two books I had already started reading before the read-a-thon. Here's my full reading list. I'm not sure I'll get to everything but will try to keep this updated throughout the week.

50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James ~ finished the last 40 pages
15 Seconds by Andrew Gross ~ finished the last 150 pages
ec-o-nom-ics: a simple twist on normalcy by Kersten Kelly ~finished the last 100 pages
These Ties by William Bortz ~ 87 pages
Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill ~ reading now

I think that's about all I'll be able to handle since I'm working during the days! I'll be doing my reading in the evenings and on the weekend.

  1. So glad you're joining me for another read-a-thon! Great list. How funny that you have Kersten's book on your list. It's one of the read-a-thon giveaway prizes. =O) I'd like to know what you think of 50 Shades. That's one book I will not be reading, but I'm interested to hear what other's think. Hope you enjoy the reading this week!

    1. That's funny about Kersten's book! I read about half of it a couple weeks ago and then got bogged down in other books. So I'm hoping to read the last 100 pages during the read-a-thon this week.

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 …
