FrightFall Read-A-Thon. I did finish reading Flat Stanley Worldwide Adventures #1: The Mount Rushmore Calamity with my daughter. As for my other reads, I am still in the middle of every single one . . .
- The Ultimate Top Secret Guide To Taking Over the World by Kenn Nesbitt (with my kids) -- we only read a couple of chapters with some fun journal activities interspersed.
- The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (audiobook) -- I am now about 3/4 of the way through this one, so there was some progress.
- Doctor Sleep by Stephen King -- I did get just shy of 250 pages read in this one.
I really don't have much to complain about because there was progress, but I am hoping for a more successful reading week this time around. I am still debating whether or not I will be joining Dewey's Read-A-Thon this Saturday, but I am leaning towards yes. My only issue is that there are some writing workshops taking place on this same day that I really want to attend as well, so the question is whether or not I can pull off both!
How was your reading this last week? Will you be joining in Dewey's Read-A-Thon?
Doctor Sleep Read-along. We just started discussing the first part this morning. If you haven't checked it out, I know you will want to!
Are you reading Doctor Sleep and joining in our discussions?!?
Because I was not feeling well, writing was affected this last week as well. I only achieved a little on the writing front last week. I am hoping for much better this week and shooting towards the same goals as last week: hit the library three days, catch up on blog writing, and start mapping out my other projects. I am seriously considering participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year and if I am, I need to get organized so I can devote all my spare time in November cracking out the words!
In case you are interested, another piece I wrote appeared on Walrus Publishing this last week: I Heart James Patterson! I know there is controversy behind this man, but click on over and read all about why I remain loyal to him.
Are you planning on participating in NaNoWriMo?
Nothing exciting happening here! My little family did go to the movie Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 over the weekend. It was a cute movie. Not as good as the original, but still cute. And, I found myself giggling many times! Definitely worth the money we paid for a little family outing!
How was your week on the homefront? Have you seen any good movies lately?
