Sorry folks, but for the first time in 3 years, I won’t be doing the 48 Hour Book Challenge. It is a really busy weekend for me and thinking about squeezing the challenge into my schedule makes me feel stressed rather than happy.
This weekend is the annual city wide garage sales for our town and I have already been shopping it up over here. I plan to go out way early tomorrow and hit the good sales. One of the sales at the library has GIRL SCOUT COOKIES!!! The last two years I have rushed through the sales like a crazy person to get back and read, but tomorrow I am going to take my time and browse to my heart’s content. Then I have a teen program at night and a meeting on Sunday (ugh). So I am not going to have a lot of time to read.
Not only will I be pressed for time, but I am also well on my way to my summer zombie-fied state. I read like a freakin’ maniac during the rest of the year, but in the summer I literally stop functioning outside of work. Last night was our summer reading kick off and there were like 400 people there. After something like that I just want to sit on my couch and stare at the wall for days, because my brain literally can’t handle a book. I will try to keep up my reading this summer, but my amount of books read is going to decrease dramatically from now until August.
So, I have rambled on for way to long, just to say that I’m not doing the challenge this year. So good luck to everyone who is already reading away (go Abby!) and I hope you all reach your reading goals!
