Yes, this is my first with Sunday Salon, and yes, it's almost Monday...in 35 more minutes. I stayed up last night cheering for the read-a-thon, and have spent most of today bouncing between work responsibilities I've sort of pushed to the side all week (grading essays and such). Yes, also a procrastinator there! However, the weather was so beautiful today that I grabbed Meg Cabot's novel Airhead and went for a walk down to the park. I can't remember the last time I walked, outside (I do it all the time at the gym), with a book in hand. As a young girl who lived down a semi-long dirt road, I would almost always walk with a book in my hands. It became a skill that I actually repeated in graduate school when I would be walking to one of my various lit. classes, knowing I needed to discuss said book that day. (Sigh...there's that procrastination thing again!) Anyway, it was really delightful. Once I got into a good pace, not too fast, not too slow, then I slipped away into my book. I'm not quite finished yet, and I did read for another 30 minutes this evening while having a quick soak in the tub, but I haven't yet picked it back up to finish.
Well, that is my meanderings through what I've read for today. If I can count the 20+ AP essays I've read about the conclusion of The Awakening by Kate Chopin, then we could chat about that as well! :) Until I finish my other book though, have a good night!
