Hours 3 and 4
So at noon today, we are 4 hours or 1/6 of the way through the read-a-thon – in the last two hours – I’ve been focusing more on my audiobook listening, so that I could run some errands and stuff like that. So far i’ve listened to 105 minutes of Lothaire – and I have 7hrs 25min to go (so the likelihood of finishing is fairly slim, but you never know).
I did read a chapter of Why You Say That? – Webb Garrison – non-fiction/etomology – this is one of those books that I can just use chapters here and there to fill in minutes during the day – its like reading the dictionary, but instead of word definitions, its more focused on what different works/sayings we use mean and how they came to be. Its interesting, but not a book that I can read in large segments.
I just finished running my errands and being (in general) a responsible adult…the two dogs are currently outside playing (otherwise, we play let’s jump on mom while she is trying to read…) and I’m looking forward to settle down with the next book on my pile – A House Without Windows (Nadia Hashimi) – but in the little bit i’ve read so far, its a pretty deep(ish) type book, so i’m probably going to alternate with something else on my kindle
What about you?
