Happy, Happy Monday!
I've got lots to chat about this week, so let's get to it!
Spring Into Horror Readathon
Last week, I shared with you that I was participating in the Spring Into Horror Readathon, a week-long event spanning Monday thru Sunday. I did not get as much read as I was hoping for. I ended up spending time on the phone trying to arrange housing options for when I move next month. Then, I flew out to the Big Sky Country to look at these said houses. And, I'm not a morning person, so I did not get as much reading done on the flight home because I slept on my flight that left at 6 AM! Anyways, I leave you with my stats for the week . . .
Pages Read: 971 pages
Hours Listened: 1.5 hours
Books Completed: 4 books
Titles of Completed Books:
Diary of a Wimpy Kid #8: Hard Luck by Jeff Kinney
Tommysaurus Rex by Doug TenNapel
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
Sleep Donation by Karen Russell (audiobook)
Sookie Stackhouse #1: Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
When it comes down to it, I declare the week successful! My favorite part about the week though is that I think we have found a place to live after we move and we have a back-up if we need it. Woohoo!!
