I've decided to join this cute little thing called the Once Upon A Read-A-Thon hosted by Candace's Book Blog, Reading Angel and Pure Imagination! The read-a-thon is taking place on July 12th, 13th, and 14th. That's Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week which is fantastic for me. My oldest two are at their dad's house for most of those days so that's two distractions out of the way. Plus my husband will be at work since it's on weekdays so that's another distraction gone for most of the day. Now all I have to contend with is my overactive, drama queen 4 year old (the biggest distraction of them all!). Plus I have the joy of two of my beautiful nieces spending the night tonight so Monday may be a wash but I'll be trying. Luckily, the best part is that the rules for this read-a-thon is simple...there are no rules, just read what you can when you can.
I have a few items on my to-do list. They are
- Finish the last few chapters I need to finish for this week's portion of Moby Dick by Herman Melville (Monday)
- Finish The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri (Hopefully Monday or Tuesday)
- Finish all or most of Book 3 of Les Miserables by Victor Hugo(Whenever I can)
- If the stars align and I manage to accomplish the rest I'll start either The Children's Book by A.S. Byatt or Cost by Roxanna Robinson. I haven't decided yet and any input on the matter would be greatly welcomed.
It's not too late! If you want to sign up head on over HERE!
