Reading Week

16 Aug

Ah, who here remembers reading week? A break from school to get caught up on school. Brilliant idea, really. Did anyone actually ever read during reading week? I seem to remember sleeping a lot. And when I did wake up long enough to read anything it was always books that had nothing to do with school.

Which gave me my latest brain fart. I need to have a reading week! See, I’m kinda drowning in amazing books that need to be reviewed. And lately reading seems to be pretty low on my priority list. So, I decided to give myself a reading week. Starting today I will not poke around online, watch TV or do any extra work around the house. All my time will be reading time. I’m not calling this a read-a-thon, out of fear of what animal will end up landing on my doorstep. (Confused? Read all about it here.) God knows I don’t need a repeat of the last few read-a-thons.

I won’t be able to get through all my review books this week, but I think that I can make a serious dent in them.

Here are the books I’ll be working my way through during reading week:

Ambitious? Yes. Crazy? Perhaps. Doable? We shall see.

This is gonna be fun. 😀

    Happy reading week! I’ve had a few of those only to have something else come up (like sleep)! Newspaper Blackout is a fun book and it’s a pretty quick read. I’ll be cheering you on!

      Thanks. I will be sleeping, but no more than usual. 😛

    Great idea! Reading hasn’t been a priority of mine lately, either, but I’m giving up TV during the week for the Game On! Diet, so I’ll have more time to read. I WANT to read more, but I just have to realign my priorities.

    We didn’t have reading week in college, but we fought to try to get one. I have no idea why…it’s not like we really would have used it productively!

      Our reading week was pleasantly rolled into our Spring break. Nice, eh?
      Yeah, I’m trying to get my priorities straight, too. It can be hard.

    Reading week was technically Spring Break. So I never actually did school work (unless I had a major essay do the week after). Sleep and non-school reading was pretty much it for me, too =D

    Good luck on your reading week!

      Yeah even though reading week was Spring break I always remember wanting to get caught up but never doing it.

    Oh wow those are amazing books! You do need to get through them, aha! I actually haven’t read Clockwork Angel (it was the one that mostly popped up hehe) … but since it’s by Cassandra Clare, it’s a must-read. I have Before I Fall on my TBR list and it’s on the very very top. I must get through the pile too. I’m in desperate need of a reading week.

    Wow, good luck! 😀 Sounds like fun.

    But you’re right, I barely ever do homework during reading week. WHO DOES THAT? 😀
