Morning Meanderings… The Results Are In

MM2

Good morning!  Any readathon hangovers out there?  I actually feel pretty good.I pooped out at hour 17 and a half.  I had started yesterday at 6 am, strong and about to conquer the world and then.. well… here was a few highlights or obstacles:

By late morning my internet started dropping out (no idea what that was) that put any challenges I was working on taking FOREVER.

 

I went to the store in early afternoon to pick up a few things, made a few phone calls, responded to some texts

 

Other than that – I was pretty committed and my final numbers are:

 

371 pages (1 1/2 books)

4 hours of audio.

With what I raised by reading and those who sponsored me – (Thank you so much!) The total donation to $122.20

 

Now, for books that came in this week:

ellen archer 3 - Copy

Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick (audio)

Leaving Time by Jodi Piccoult (audio)

The Innovators by Walter Isaacson (audio)

Ruth’s Journey by Donald McCaig (audio)

The Woman Who Would Be King by Kara Cooney (audio)

Dead Poets Society – movie (I bought this…. love this movie!)

The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving

MOO by Jane Smiley – I purchased at Opus and Olives

Memoir Of The Sunday Brunch by Julie Pandl – I purchased at Opus and Olives

Meritropolis by Joel Ohman

Deadly Wandering by Matt Richtel – I purchased at Opus and Olives

 

Some exciting books there!  I am excited to dig in!

Today is a pretty low key day (YAY!).  I will go to church this morning but then am home the rest of the day.  I am going to finish up TEN by Gretchen McNeil which is one I found thanks to checking out blogs yesterday during the readathon.  Creepy good… like 80’s scary 🙂

So that’s my Sunday… I think more reading 🙂

What are you doing this lovely Sunday?

  1. Congrats on completing the Readathon…and for the pile of new books. Leaving Time is one I plan to buy this week….I received Ruth’s Journey last week.

    Enjoy the new week!

  2. Hah! When you “pooped out” at hour 17 1/2, I was,er,ah, throwing in the towel. Cheers!

  3. Reading not sure which book I will start. Two of Kathy Reichs books and a number of ARC to read.

  4. Congrats on your Readathon stats!!! Low key for me today too. Nap time soon.

  5. Yay for you and your Read-a-thon success! Though I don’t think you ever really take off that “Red Reading Cape” 😉

  6. Andrea (aka Rokinrev)

    For the first time in forever we are having an actual guest in our guest room tonight. Just got back from church and checking e-mail prior to “the end is in sight” quilt…no more craft projects come in until its done. Also 3/4 was through Aunty Lee’s Deadly Specials. Next in line: Michael Hurley’s The Vineyard

  7. I see lots of goodies in those audio/books! I hope you enjoy them all as well as your week!

  8. Doing good after the RaT, though I’m tired. I can never sleep when I have something to do or have been excited about something, no matter how tired I am. So I napped for less than 24 hours about an hour after Dewey’s ended. I won’t sleep well tonight either, but should sleep well on Monday. 🙂

  9. Nice stack of books and audios.

    I will be looking forward to see what you think about Ruth’s Journey. It wasn’t the best book I read this year. Maybe it will be different in audio.

    ENJOY your week.

    CONGRATS on your 17 1/2 hours. I would never be able to even that. 🙂

  10. Great job with the readathon! I don’t know how anyone gets through the full 24 hours.

  11. I wondered if you’d made it past that hour 17 mark. 🙂 Glad to hear that you’re back to reading again today. Congrats on raising so much for the library!

  12. It sounds like you had a great readathon!
