Last night I got around 6 hours of mediocre sleep, so after my first two and 1/2 hours of reading I couldn’t really keep my eyes open anymore and took an hour and 1/2 nap. Since then I’ve been reading, with some lunch thrown in, and I just finished my first book, “The Book Thief.” I did have that started before the Readathon, but I was only 45 pages into it, so I’ve so far read 505 pages.
I’m going to take a little break from the printed word right now and switch to the audiobook of “The UncommonReader”. I need to get the laundry ready to go and started. Once I get the first load in, my audiobook and I are going to head over to the library to make some returns and get some more books, leaving my husband to put that load in the dryer and start the second load. I may pause for a bit at the library and read a story or two out of “Tunneling to the Center of the Earth” before I come back home to put the laundr away. I’m not totally sure what I’ll start reading when the laundry is done, but I’m contemplating either “The King’s Confidante” or “Lucky Girl.”
