There are no rules to the weekend, we’re simply hoping to devote a good amount of time to reading, and perhaps meeting some of our reading challenges and goals for the year. We thought it’d be fun if we cheered each other on a bit.
My reading and writing has taken a huge hit the last couple of months with starting a new job, moving, and taking a class. This weekend is a great opportunity for me to get a few things done around the house, around the blog, and in the books, so I could not pass up the chance to jump in on this readathon. Here's a quick peek into the books that I will be working on this weekend . . .
My current read is Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill. I started it a little while ago, but have not had the chance to really devote the time that I have wanted. That is changing. I have already spent more time reading it today than I have in the last week! After that, I hope to dive into the graphic novels/comics, and then get Boy Snow Bird started by the end of the weekend for an upcoming book club discussion. I am also hoping to get in some good audiobook time with Atlas Shrugged, and maybe even a good chunk of reading time with my kids with The Secret Garden.
I do not plan on keeping track of pages or time read this time around. Instead, I am just going to go into this weekend with a relaxed attitude and get as much read as I can. I will be back on Monday to share my wrap-up with details on how the weekend goes. Between now and then, you can find any updates from me on Twitter and Instagram.
