Yes, I got up early, and I started reading without checking in or posting first. Within the first hour, I had finished Anne Lamott’s Some Assembly Required. (Heads up, Deb Nance of Readerbuzz–I put a sticky note with your name on this one; you will love it. Maybe I can trade it for a Canva lesson. LOL)
After two cups of coffee to keep things going, I ate a pastry, warmed in the microwave, washed down by the second cup for breakfast and made my plans for the day. I will have to take time off from the readathon to go to Half Price Books to get a request made by a second-grade Little Free Library “patron,” but since that’s kind of a “bookish” activity, I’m counting it as readathon time. I will read in the truck as My Better Half drives me there, so technically it’s reading time.
I have spent a little over an hour on…
I had started this book, donated to my LFL ,at my own readathon earlier this month, but had put it aside to read Cybils entries and books due at the library. Perhaps I’ll finish it this readathon.
So far, things are shaping up nicely.
Easy answer here: yesterday’s Houston Chronicle and Alvin Advertiser. Then, I’ll tackle today’s Chronicle. p.s. I heard on the news this morning the Astros won! World Series here we come!

Sounds like things are going good Rae. I started at 8 reading blogs for an hour. I read until noon and ate some fruit and dip with a bottle of flavoured water. Then I listened to an audiobook (The Santa Cruise) while I cleaned up, did dishes and went for a short walk), now I am back to reading Celebration at Christmas Cove. I should finish both of these Christmas books by early evening. I did just finish a little snack of mini Halloween chocolate bars. Now, back at it. 📚🧡
I have never taken part in a Readathon. No time or patience! But have fun with it!
