Morning Meanderings… Read-A-Thon Wrap up

Mornin….. *groping to find coffee cup*.  How ya’ all doin’?  *said in a deep froggy voice like I had smoked a pack of cigarrettes*  (Apparently when I am tired I abbreviate any word I can).

Here is my recap of the Read-A-Thon.  It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed just sitting aside a day of no big commitments other than to relax at home and read.  I didn’t plan well on the snacks and by early afternoon I ran to the grocery store for a little variety of good reading snacks, however I listened to audio there and back so I was still “plugged in”.

I started out strong and was cleaning up a few partial reads I had going.  By the time I got to SOLD by Patricia McCormick I was laying down and well… yeah… I fell asleep about 4 pm until about 4:30.  Woke up, finished the read and then made dinner and chatted with hubby for about an hour.

I ended with The Bell Jar and read that until I crashed again on the couch and this time knew I was done.  I got up and went to bed.

So over all, I completed 5 books and half of the 6th.  The Bell Jar is my book club read for our Tuesday meeting so that will be my focus this afternoon.  It is our classic read that we do every October so I need to also search for a classic hat to wear to this review.

During the Read-A-Thon I was able to get out and visit a few blogs, but not many as I was focusing on the reading.  I participated in some of the challenges and was a winner in one!  😛

Later I hope to pop over and see some of the new people who stopped by to say hi and “you go girl”.  A special thanks to Jill and her Cheerleader Squad – I think I was cheered for about  6 times throughout the event and that was pretty cool.

And since this song has been in my head every time I felt like quitting yesterday – I will pass it on to you and hopefully it will get stuck in your head and I will be set free.

Well… that’s my time… shower and off to Church.

Have a super Sunday everyone!!!

  1. Yay to you for winning a prize! And yes the cheerleaders were great. This was my first Readathon and I had so much fun. I’ll definitely do it again if the timing works. I guess my husband doesn’t necessarily have to be out of town like he was this time, but that sure helped 🙂 Just me and my pups. And one teenager I barely see anyway.

    I have to be honest, I’m NOT going to open that video. I have a book hangover and having the Rocky song in my head is not going to help. lol

  2. I couldn’t have done it. Congratulations on getting 5 books read.
    Hope that you are going to rest your eyes for the rest of the day.


  3. Loved The Bell Jar, must read it again. I didn’t read as many as you did…I just continued with my reading week, and the books were slow going…tedious. Should have picked something light, but I’m glad I got my books done.

    Have a great day.

  4. I had eight teams of cheerleaders this year…more than we’ve ever had before, so that was exciting! And a good thing, too, since there were more readers than ever!

    Congrats on a successful readathon!

    1. Thanks Hannah – I am a bit book groggy today and have that back of the head dull headache (I believe Lynne referred to it as a book hang over).

      I still plan to get back in to the Bell Jar this afternoon as the laundry is done, dinner is in the crock pot, kitchen is cleaned and I feel like I accomplished something 🙂

  5. I really enjoyed the read-a-thon too. It helped me get out of my reading slump. I did go to bed fairly early but I got up early and read a little bit more before it ended. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  6. Glad you enjoyed the read-a-thon. I have tried to cheer in years past but this year was out of town so am just now catching up on all of the posts that I missed over the weekend.

  7. You did well. A power nap always helps. I’ll keep reading how you set up your participation and by the time I get to do it, I’ll know how to do it to get the most out of it.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
