Readathon Update #1

I am doing okay. I didn't get as much read as I had hoped. Many, dogs and I decided to wash my bedding. I love crawling into april fresh sheets at night, in my favorite jammies with a good book. I have found the laundry is a good idea. I have to get up and go downstairs to change it which gets me up. I finished one book and I was so into the book I sat in the same position for too long and was pretty stiff when I did get up. I finished Somewhere Inside by Laura Ling & Lisa Ling. It was a very good book. I'll be posting a review next week sometime.

    Go for walks.

  4. I saw the Ling sister on The Oprah Show, and their story is definitely fascinating. Great pick. Just swinging by to cheer you on. Hope all is well! Happy reading :)

  5. 168 pages is awesome! And I totally understand the allure of fresh sheets. I have been in bed all day so far, and even though my current sheets haven't even been on my bed a week yet, I keep contemplating changing them real quickly because there is nothing better than curling up in clean sheets!

  6. Sounds good so far - keep it up!

    Twist and shout your spirit knocks me out!

    Looks like you're hangin in there. Hope you are having fun!

  8. Let books be your dining table,
    And you shall be full of delights
    Let them be your mattress
    And you shall sleep restful nights.

  9. You're doing great. There are so many distractions - we probably never get as much read as we want!
