Sunday Salon ~ Readathon Aftermath!
It's the day after Dewey's Read-a-Thon. I had a great time participating. I finished two books, Faith by Jennifer Haigh and Fury by Salman Rushdie and made sizeable dents in Galore by Michael Crummey and Far To Go by Alison Pick. I also read 75 pages of Night Road by Kristin Hannah.
I fell asleep about 11:30/12:00 midnight despite also napping accidentally in the late afternoon! So disappointing! I didn't wake until late this morning so there are no Readathon updates after 7 p.m. on my blog. My allergies started kicking in a few days ago so I've been extra tired, but I realized yesterday that I don't have the energy and stamina to read for 24-hours even with breaks. I accomplished the most reading in the morning when I was able to read for several hours after a good night's sleep and my favorite morning friend, coffee!!
I really enjoyed visiting other Readathon participants blogs, reading their updates and cheering them on. Next year I'm going to be a cheerleader and offer to host part of the Readathon. The cats will be the most disappointed since several of them sat on my while I was reading. I had to shoo Lola off my lap because after I replaced a bookmark that has a dangling charm she kept swatting at and playing with she started chewing the corner of the book I was reading! Lola's a little thing and she has the most energy and playfulness I've ever seen in cat!
Thank you to everyone who stopped by to cheer my reading and wish me well! I really appreciated your comments.
Enjoy your Sunday!
I've been having a lot of problems with spacing in my posts especially when I add an image to my post. Does anybody know how I can fix this?
