Readathon: Hour 15--Back to It

Well, I'm back from the apple farm (which was actually just an old-timey store), where we quickly went through the line to pick up some yummy homemade donuts and some fresh-pressed apple cider.  Yum!  We then headed into town to eat an early dinner and to check out some cool shops and antique stores.  Have I ever mentioned how gorgeous dishware was at the turn of the century?  It makes me wish we all sat down to elaborate table settings so I could own some beautiful, unique crystal and silver.

Anyway, I have to say that what we didn't count on was the Michigan home game filling the streets and making any "rush" pretty difficult.  On the way home we decided to try out Traverse Pie Co.'s famous cherry pie, as mentioned by Mario Batalli on his show The Chew.  Now I have a nice piece of truly delicious cherry pie and my stack of books to dive back into for a bit.  My doctor friend is falling asleep as I type this, so I'll be reading on my own for awhile.

I know I missed the Mid-Survey Event, but I want to join in and get going again.  Let's hope it sticks now!  Here we go:

Mid-Event Survey
1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?  Feeling more than ready to dive back into my reading!  I'm not really tired at all, but I've been out all afternoon.
2) What have you finished reading?  A Lisa Kleypas novel from earlier this morning.
3) What is your favorite read so far?   Well, my one read was pretty good.  :)  I have some more to read that all have me eager to get back to it.
4) What about your favorite snacks?  The Traverse Co. Cherry Pie is really delicious, so I'll say that is my favorite snack so far.
5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!  I haven't yet.  :(  Maybe now that I'm back I can catch a few new ones?

Thanks for all the kind words so far!  I'm off to keep reading To Marry an English Lord and a few others that I have on my e-reader.  I hope everyone is having a great readathon so far!


  1. Ummmmm….I want donuts and fresh apple cider and cherry pie SO BAD NOW!! I think the worst part of the readathon has been reading about everyones snacks :p Keep having fun!!

    1. Sorry. :) Those were not really the best idea of a "healthy" readathon treat, but my friend twisted my arm. LOL.

  2. YUM, I have some cider in the fridge right now! Love it! Apples are like the only thing I like about fall.

    Coincidentally, we (my mom and I) ran across something from The Chew today too. Did you see the episode where they recommended the Vuitton-designed purses that held 2 bottle of wine? My mom won one in a raffle!

    1. You don't like the fall?!? I LOVE the fall! Sad. :( Yes, I do remember those wine purses. Hilarious that you guys got one!

  3. Sounds like your readathon-ing is going great! Keep it up!! :)
