I am a huge sucker for read-a-thons so when I saw that
Bookworming in the 21st Century was hosting this one I had to join in. The problem - I do have a huge tbr, but I also have review commitments and library books, so I am modifying slightly, and hoping this doesn't break the spirit of this read-a-thon. This week I am going to try and read as many books from my library TBR pile as I can. See it's a TBR pile and they need to get read and this will help me also get further along with my Library Reading Challenge as well.

So am I wrong to make the read-a-thon work for me? I am going to get as much reading as I can done each day, but unfortunately I still have a 40-hour-a-week job and kids and hubby, so we'll see how it goes. I started by actually taking a lunch hour today and reading, so we'll see if I can keep it up all week. Good luck all!

Summary - Another good week - not as much reading done as we got a puppy. Thankfully he is an outside dog so there is no training, but we have been spending lots of time playing and taking walks. The kids are in heaven and I must admit I am smitten as well.
It's summer here on the coast so I am going into summer reading mode. I was taking off on Thursday afternoons to pick up my kids early, but I'm now thinking of coming in a few hours late on Monday and getting some sun time in and laying out means reading time. I love summer!
