The Catching-Up Readathon is now over. I wasn’t as successful as I wanted to be, though; I had challenged myself to read 5 books and I only finished 4, because, like a fool, I had forgotten that we’re now no longer allowed to read books at work when the workload is slow and everything else is done.
Not to mention there was the rather time-consuming work of preparing dinner on Sunday, which, while not difficult, did take away time from my reading.
Still, given that I was behind by a book and am now, well, not, I consider it a success. There are plenty of people out there who actually got this past weekend as a long weekend off from school or work, and I wasn’t fortunately enough to be counted on that list, so juggling more reading with just as much work as normal? Yeah, definitely a success.
So which books did I read over this weekend?
Reviews for these books will be coming over the course of the next few days. I’m spacing them out so that I’ve got more steady blog content.
It was a lot of fun doing the readathon. Even though most of the books I read were short, and I couldn’t devote as much time to it as I wanted to, it was still fun to know that I and others were trying to get a little further ahead with our goals, catching up to where we said we’d be, and having a good time with it.
