It's the Island Life | Weekly Snapshot

By the time this post is published, we will all be back home, but right this moment, as I type this up, we are enjoying our last day at Daufuskie, a secluded island near Hilton Head, SC and Savannah, GA. We were lucky to score a cottage (without having to break the bank) with front-row access to the beach, something that has always been on my bucket list and that I was thrilled to cross off.  This week has been very refreshing and just what I needed - a getaway, a break from it all, a retreat with family with no thoughts of work, to-do lists, and chores getting in the way. The island sure runs on its own time. The streetlights aren't turned ON at night to avoid attracting turtles too far from their ideal nesting place. There's the alligator crossing time at night when they go from pond to pond visiting friends (and hence tourists are advised to stay home when it's dark).

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?
