This is a mid-day check in for the Readathon. I have completed three books and it is just lunch time. I am within 40 minutes of finishing the 4th.
I thought last night, as I was getting comfy with Cedric and eating pizza, that I didn’t have to wait for the readathon to start. I could start reading when ever I wanted. I started making a list of what I wanted to read. It was a long list. It dawned on me that I could focus on finishing books today. So, I made my list, noted the start point, and read what I wanted as long as I wanted. I have a huge collection of audiobooks to get through. Instead of holding out for midnight, knowing I never stay up that late now, I read instead of watching TV.
Cedric was up early (5:30am) so, I started right away. I have only listened to the audiobooks when I can’t read an print or ebook. I only took a 13 minute break because I went to the gym and I can’t read and ride the stationary bike at the same time. Why? Because the bikes I like are like a video game and I need to pay attention so I can beat myself. I took another 10 minute one to talk Cedric. I have begun to enjoy walking him without distraction.
The rest of the day will be busy. I have to visit my grandfather and then go to the second Passover seder with cousins. I can’t read when I am with others. I will be listening to David Copperfield on the drive there and back.
Until then, know I have finished 3 of 15 books, am close to finishing the 4th, and I have made significant process in two others.
A final review tomorrow!
