Readathons and best-laid plans
Hurray! Dewey's Readathon is Saturday, October 9, starting at 7am (I live in Chicago's timezone, all start times are based off 5am Pacific).
Fail! I have to work 8 hours Saturday plus I think at least two of my family members are going to make an appearance that morning to see what's wrong with my dishwasher. AND I work at 11am on Sunday for a friend.
Bye-bye, reading time!
I'm still going to Readathon, though, just not as much as I would like. I plan on starting on Friday evening and reading for a while, catching some reading time Saturday afternoon/evening/night, and maybe a bit on Sunday morning before I go into the store. I'll stitch it all together and call it a Readathon.
I'm not going to plan my reading beyond the idea that what worked well last fall will probably work again, but I will be finishing books that have lain around disgracefully "in progress". Books on the Readathon shortlist are:
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (I stopped because of the awful realization that there are no more Millenium books....if I finish the book, no more Lisbeth to look forward to)
Matterhorn (half-way done, then I got distracted)
Let's see how far I get - I have loads of half-finished books laying around!
