Most of the junior fiction is pre-reading for my 11yo's reading list next year, and the other stuff is mostly driven by wanting to have a lot of shorter options. Priority is finishing My Brilliant Friend, since I have a book club meeting for that on Monday. In addition to reading, I'm planning on doing some cooking and baking throughout the day.
I started my day with plenty of coffee on the patio, and made myself read 75 pages of My Brilliant Friend before taking a break to make some waffles for my kiddos. I've been listening to Saint Mazie on audio, so even my break was book-filled. Now I'm moving on to some junior fiction before getting through another chunk of Ferrante and then back to audiobook/dinner-cooking.
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, whether you are fitting in some time to read or not.

my cat a bit peeved that she is confined to the indoors.
I'm so jealous. I love the readathon, but April is always my busiest month. I was gone from 7AM to 10PM. Not a good day for a readathon. But, I've already got the October date on my calendar.ReplyDelete
Poor kitty! My dd and her husband just moved out and into their own apartment. She took her kitty with her--we miss the cat terribly! She always cuddled with me every morning.
Here's to a good reading week!
That's a crazy day! It ended up being a good readathon for me, though I'm never able to read as much as I think I'll be able to. There's something about mom reading that makes all my kiddos in the mood to chat...maybe I should have readathons more often ;)ReplyDelete
