Readathon!!!!!

21 Apr

8:24 am
It’s almost starting time and I am ready to go! I have all my snacks ready for the day, books picked out and animals are all cleaned and fed. All I have to do is read!

I’m starting off with Jackson Pearce’s Purity. I’ve heard mixed reviews about this one, so I’m pretty curious about what I’ll think about it. First readathon snackie-poo of the day shall be irish cream tea and some strawberries. YUMMY!

11:35am

About a hundred pages into Jackson Pearce’s Purity and really enjoying it so far. I’ve nommed on strawberries, trailmix and pepperoni so far, along with a couple of cups of tea. I’m getting a bit drowsy (I was up late last night) so I’m going to switch from the couch to a chair. Also going to have a cup of David’s tea chocolate rocket for a boost of energy.

1:30pm

I finished my first book! LOVED Purity by Jackson Pearce. Loved it! Next up is While He was Away by Karen Schreck. This one’s an YA romance, a genre I rarely delve into. But I’m trying to broaden my reading horizons and not be as snooty about romance novels. 🙂 And I believe it’s time for some Earl Gray tea and dark chocolate, almond coconut treats!

4:30pm

I’m about half way through While He was Away. Holy emotional read! I’m definitely going to need to read something light next. I also took a 20 minute break to cut down some of the shrubs in front of my house. It’s supper time here, so I’m nomming on some bologna with avocado. The tea of the hour is Tweed and Hickory cookies & cream which doesn’t taste anything like cookies & cream but is still delish.

12:00am

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

9:20am

So, as you can see from the above update, I zonked out at around midnight. I knew I wouldn’t be able to stay up all night, because I have a houseful of animals that require my attention and usually start asking for it around 7am. I managed to finish another book (Bad Kitty Meets Baby) and start a fourth (The Last Song) before I dozed off. I’m taking today, which is all kinds of dreary, as another reading day and hope to finish a few more books. AND, since I had enough snacks for an army, I’m good for nommies for the rest of the week. 🙂

    I’m getting good snack ideas from your posts. The Earl Grey is a sound idea. I wish I had some, but I think I left mine at work. Happy eating, I mean reading!!!

    Keep up the great reading! I should probably start thinking of something for dinner, but will probably just keep up with snacks throughout the evening 🙂
