I haven’t been able to join something like this in so long! Every time a readathon or readalong comes up, I always have a bunch of school work to do, or something going on for my job, or other things I have to get done. Not this time! Jenn at Jenn’s Bookshelves hosts Thankfully Reading Weekend every year (I’m pretty sure), and this might be the first year I’ve been able to join. I didn’t sign up officially on the start date because I thought my daughter would be home from college and we’d be spending time with her, but then Eric got the flu (and yes, he had his flu shot back in October), so she decided to stay at school with some friends rather than risk getting sick right before finals week. The vast majority of my school work is done for the week, so here I am!
I’ve been reading since yesterday morning–I finished the fourth book in the Wheel of Time series (The Shadow Rising) by Robert Jordan, and started the fifth book. I’m also reading With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo. I’m sure I’ll finish that one today before I take a nap, and then I’m not sure what I’ll start reading next.
I will be able to cross off a few of those boxes before the end of today–With the Fire on High just happens to be about a girl who loves to cook, and there are recipes added throughout the book. Plus, I have one more psychology article to read for school, so that will be my “read something that’s not a book.”
Time to go do some reading! Have fun, everyone!
