Happy Saturday, my lovely online comrades! Today’s post is a brief update about my to-be-read pile and what I will be dong on Saturday & Sunday July 20th and 21st! Last night, I shared a blog post about Amazon’s Prime Day and you can check that out at the end of this blog blurb.
I enjoy posting three blogs per week and due to medical problems, I am working on catching up on missed blog “deadlines.” The goal this weekend is to publish and/or schedule three more blogs so I can be caught up- and even ahead before starting next week!
For the past two months, I’ve been stuck on the same book. Witworking 45+ hours per week, a trip to Texxas, being sick this entire week, and just other stuff getting in the way, I’m slightly sad I’m not further along. However, I do not want to give up on this book just yet! I’m now to page 250-something and chapter 18. Forever Amber is a story that’s 972 pages as a historical english romance novel I am borrowing from my Mom. She’s getting anxious for me to finish the book, so she can pick it up in December when she’ll get to visit next.
I typically read one romance a year and this is the first time I’ve read more than one romance novel in a year. Part of me is curious if maybe part of the reason I’m reading this slower is because its another romance. Then again, I maybe wrong.
24in48 Readathon Challenge
For a year or two now, I have heard from reading friends, social media, and various other outlets about the 24in48 readathon challenge. I hadn’t realized that it’s on a specific weekend each month, since I had planned on doing it this weekend. But it works out that I got to sign-up for the 20th & 21st after scheduling some doctor appointments for the week of the 15th-19th and I will definitly want to rest up after my cardiologist appointment and for the 2-3 other doctor appointments I’ll need to do before returning to school in August.
The goal os the 24in48 hour challenge, is to spend from 12:01 am Saturday to 11:59 PM Sunday night reading for at least 24 hours. Now, reading those 24 hours straight would be difficutl! You can stage it out with 12 hours on Sunday, and 12 hours on Saturday. I alwyas have weekends off thanks to the job I have, so I’m not having to worry about work and doing the challenge. You can click the link below to sign-up and particpate in the reading challenge with me for the 20th and 21st of July.
And hey, maybe that’ll help me complete the book I’ve been working on since the spring semester ended! 🙂
