Good morning everyone! I'm excited to say that I decided I had a few hours here or there today to join in "Dewey's Read-a-Thon" this time around. I really didn't think I would be able to, so I held back. This week we only had work through Wednesday and now we're off until this coming Tuesday. It's been a little crazy for me, since I'm still slogging my way through a stack of essays that seem to never end. (I think I need to just realize that I will ALWAYS have essays and papers to read.)
Anyway, we're off for Fall Break and I'm in Michigan, visiting my friend "Doc" (as she likes me to call her). It was high time that I paid her a visit, so here I am! It's been really nice so far, and I've had a chance to get a good bit of reading (and grading) done while I've been here. Yesterday she had surgeries to attend to, so I was able to sleep in and then get up to do some work.
As for the readathon, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to have time today. We're going to visit an apple farm today and maybe do a bit of shopping, but I have already read for a bit this morning and finished a book that I started last week. Thanks to Tasha at "Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Books," she pointed me in the direction of a Lisa Kleypas novel she thought I might like. Yep, she was right. I got up this morning and finished up the last 150 pages of it as my first read for the readathon. I think that's a pretty good start.
Here are my stats so far then:
Number of books read since you started: 1 -- Stranger in My Arms by Lisa Kleypas
Running total of pages read since you started: About 150
Running total of time spent reading since you started: 1.25
Mini-challenges completed: Nothing yet. We'll see if I get the chance!
Other participants you’ve visited: None yet. I'm going to do that now before we leave for the apple farm.
All right. I'm off then! I'm going to bounce around and visit a few folks to see how they're doing. Then, I'm thinking I'll maybe read one of the following:
