This is basically just a laid back and relaxing readathon to mark the end of summer. It starts today and goes through Sunday... easy peasy. I know that I won't have time Sunday - we have an annual Football Party to go to. I'll be prepping some food Saturday, and will actually have to go to work for like an hour to announce an author who is presenting at our library.... but the rest of the time will be spent relaxing and reading. Promise.
As we are also in RIP X mode, I will be focusing on books that fit that theme as well. So my goals for this readathon have nothing to do with page counts, time spent reading, or number of books completed. I'm going full-out with the relaxing and will state that my goal is to do as much as I can. That is it.
I'll mark down updates throughout the weekend on this post. Have fun everyone!
Friday: I worked all day, watched a movie with my kids and a comedy special with my husband - and still read the first 5 chapters of The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord. No, it doesn't fit with RIP, like at all, but I need to read something like it as I just finished Gone Girl on Thursday.
Saturday: Took care of stuff around the house, went to work for an hour or so to introduce an author (Randy Susan Meyers - who is awesome, by the way) and went to the in-laws for an impromptu family dinner. Still finished The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord and LOVED it.
Sunday: Zero reading done today, which was expected. We all went to a Patriots Football Party which was most of the day, and came home to watch the Emmys. It is completely ironic that I wanted to watch the Emmys, since I barely watch any television at all... but it was entertaining. I don't think I could have paid close attention to a book anyway.
So another readathon done. I received an email this weekend about another weeklong readathon coming in October - I think - I need to go back and check out the details. I'll let you know!
