A lot of things got in the way of my reading today, but hopefully I am not completely done yet.
This morning I went to lots of garage sales in the rain (yea for a new pretty cat carrier!) and then got a new driver’s lisence (yea for looking like a drowned rat in my picture!!). There was also a lot of other unnecessary running around in the rain as well (Amber, I bought some of that Be Curly stuff!!).
Unfortunately as the morning wore on I started to feel very icky. Yesterday I had a really bad sore throat that I attributed to one too many classroom speils about the summer reading program. Well last night it was really terrible and today I started to get the all-around-exhausted-icky-malaise feeling that comes with actually being sick. This is not good.
Anyway, to quit rambling, here is what I accomplished today.
Throughout the Day (3 hours 7 minutes)–Percy Jackson The Demigod Files audiobook
This morning while I was out and about and then tonight while I ate dinner I listened to the inbetweeny Percy Jackson book of short stories. I found it relatively amusing and I always like to see what my favorite characters are up to. I don’t think I got the whole experience by listening to the audiobook because I think there are portraits of the characters in the actual book, so I am sad that I missed those. Thank the Gods for being able to listen to an audiobook to break things up!
1:13-2:19 Mates, Dates, and Inflatable Bras by Cathy Hopkins
This book was okay. It didn’t really have much substance and the characters didn’t really resonate with me but I am so glad that I read it because I adore the name Nesta!!! And anything British-y is fine by me.
2:19-4:46 Had to take a nap…..darn sickness catching up with me.
4:46-6:36 Once Upon a Marigold by Jean Ferris
I liked this book a lot! It is right up my alley. I totally have a weakness for fairy tale/princess stories. I loved that it was told from the guy’s point of view. Now I need to get my hands on the 2nd one.
6:36-7:31 Ate dinner and finished the Percy Jackson audiobook (not counted in time since audiobook was already listed)
7:31-8:26 Continued The Lincolns by Candace Fleming
Still liking this book a lot. One thing that really hit me was that I would not have wanted the Lincoln family to visit my library. Apparently Mary and Abraham let their kids do whatever the heck they wanted and they totally would have gotten a mean librarian glare from me.
8:26-8:41 Blogs and stuff
Then I was interrupted by my mom calling, which was a nice break and now I am blogging again. I think I will keep reading a little while longer, but I don’t know how much longer I can go tonight. I don’t plan on waking up real early in the morning, but I know I can make my goal of 15 hours.
Totals so far:
4.5 books (still working on the Lincolns)
7 hours 13 minutes counted today (including blogging and audiobook) so far and with the 6 hours from yesterday that makes 13 hours 13 minutes……….oooooohhhhhh, unlucky way to end the day…..must read some more!
P.S. I know I said I would read Specials today, but it just didn’t happen, we will see about tomorrow.
