Wrapping up January | Weekly Snapshot

Last week went much better than I dared hope it would be. I managed to catch some parts of the Presidential Inauguration and the evening program, and just the realization that the administration is really, truly, definitively changing has just sunk in, I think. I haven't spent more than about 5 minutes each day on the news (didn't feel the need to) and I hope to keep it that way for as long as possible. Life Yep, another busy work week. I know I hoped for a lighter work week, but who am I kidding. Work has been a different kind of busy each week this whole month and it will be nothing different this coming week. I just hope to figure out how to get my lunch hour freed up and use it to recharge. Not much happened in life this week - kids are loving being back at school, and I am loving my uninterrupted time, something that was only a luxury for much of last year.  Reading Even if life was busy this week, I did read quite a bit. I'm slowly reading So You Want To Talk About Ra

Kicking off the Fall Catch-Up Readathon


Just got back at home, and I'm itching to read for a change. During this time, I usually pick my laptop and spend hours browsing, and before I know it, *chime, chime*, it's time to sleep! I already have my posts for tomorrow ready. So the only distraction I'm going to have today and the rest of this week is my busy Google Reader, which is fine by me. I need a distraction anyways.

If you want to join in, you can still do, as this runs all week. Just go to The True Book Addict here to sign up or here to put up your starting post. Since I'll be getting just around 4 hours each day, I'm not going to get too ambitious. I'll just read what suits me. I'm going to pick The Passage by Justin Cronin and alternate it with Stealing Lumby by Gail Fraser. Some time this week, I'll probably start Ulysses by James Joyce and Moloka'i by Alan Brennert. So there!

I'm always impressed with everyone that is able to do these readathons! Good luck!!
Glad you're joining us! I have The Passage, but haven't had time to reading it yet so I loaned it to my dad. I'm keeping a chunkster on the sidelines myself, Under the Dome, just in case...to break up the monotony. Hope you have fun reading this week!

Coffee and a Book Chick, I usually don't do readathons, because I can't mess up my sleep. But this time I'm going in because 1. I don't have to NOT sleep, and 2. I need to spruce up my reading.

Michelle, Under the Dome is another chunkster I need to read, umm, maybe next year?
