Read-a-Thon Update (12p-3pm)

My guest for the day has left but my reading isn’t doing much better. I did finish another book but I’ve been suffering from a headache and just want to curl up for a bit (that might come a little later). It’s too soon to give into temptation.

Hopefully I’ll cruise through another book. Still trying to decide what to read next but I took a shower and I feel ready to rock-n-roll!

Read-a-Thon (10a-12pm) Update

morning

Figured it was time for a quick update. This is where I’m reading from right now … but it’s starting to get pretty warm so I might need to adjust this soon. Just made my shake lunch (2 week cleanses are not fun so far … 4 days in, hopefully it gets better).

I have company for a few hours reading with me but we’re chatting more than reading so I’m sure my big progress will come later in the day.

Read-a-Thon Update 1 (6a-9a)

Well … it’s been three hours and I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished much. The house is now quiet (just me and the pets) and I find I’m slowly making some progress.

I had breakfast and now it’s time to make a dent.

Goal: Finish some books and relax

It’s time for a read-a-thon!

Image

I haven’t been blogging here at all lately … but the Read-a-Thon is happening today and I wanted a place to share. I haven’t been able to participate in the past couple and I almost didn’t make this one.

I’ll get into that later I’m sure. For now, here’s the intro meme and I want to start reading!

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? I am in Boise, ID today and it’s going to be nice and hot for reading in the hammock.
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I picked out a lot of books i’ve been wanting to read for awhile but I think My First New York would be my choice. I’m going on my second trip to NYC at the end of May and I can’t wait!
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? Veggies and hummus dip and vegan jerky. I’m on a two week cleanse so my snacks are very limited.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I sold and had to move out of my house in five days (aka yesterday). Moved in with the parents for a few weeks. AND I’m building a brand new house (see below). This read-a-thon is much needed to relax and destress.

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? I don’t think I was able to participate last year, but I know this year I am very prepared with my snacks and drinks (easy when all you eat are veggies, drink water and make a smoothy).

Here’s what I’m reading from today:

Happy Reading!!
