Kickin' Off Late!!

The Read. Read. Read-a-thon is already two hours in. I am just now logging on for the first time!! This is not a great way to start!! However, I feel that if I can get my household stuff done now, then I will have the majority of the afternoon and late hours to devote strictly to reading. That's my plan anyways. Most of the morning I intend to work on housekeeping issues . . . getting caught up on my comments, cheering on my fellow read-a-thoners, and writing some reviews. I will then have to run some errands. By that time, I'm hoping to have lunch and get one kid down for a nap, so I devote a few hours to reading. I'm currently working on Royal Blood by Rona Sharon. It's a longer book and I am at the beginning, so I have some shorts by Poe handy to break up my time AND I could not resist picking up a copy of Matchless by Gregory Maguire earlier this week from the library. That should be a fun little break as well. It looks like one I can read in one small sitting.

So, until next time, I will give you my beginning numbers for the record . . .

  1. Hey - I get your philosophy! Great plan :o)

    You can DO it!!! or should I go all Nike with Just Do It? Naaa... I'll stick with the former :o) Good Luck!!! I'm rooting for you!

  2. Good Luck to u..Looks like u have some great picks.. Read on :)

  3. Oooh, when Gregory Maguire is good, he's SO good. I haven't read matchless, but I hope it works out for you.

  4. You've got this! It's wise to start with house-keeping. Enjoy your books. I've only read Wicked, but that was excellent so I'm sure Matchless is just as good, or better.

  5. You are off and running! Good luck!

    I feel like I am a bad blogger today. I was all ready to go and then my Internet conked out. I had to go to Starbuck's to post what I was reading!

    Well, I'm back and I hope to visit blogs for the rest of the Readathon.

    You are doing great!

  6. LOL! I am always late. :)

    Have fun!!

    Shona . . . Thank you!! I did enjoy some of my picks!

    raych . . . I did enjoy Matchless, but I want to re-read the original it was based off of. Once I do that, then I will write my review!

    MissAttitude . . . The housekeeping really didn't work out!! Oops!! Ah well!! And, I love Wicked!! It's one of my favorite reads!
