Read-A-Thon – Hours 6 through 14 (and a little music)


Well, that baby shower sure took longer then expected. It was worth it to celebrate my being an Aunt for the first (and possibly only) time and it was lovely!!!!  I got home, fed the dogs and cats and was ready to jump on the computer to update quickly. I walk into my room and there is my daughter on the… you guessed it… computer. No reason to get frazzled. I grabbed my book, threw on a jacket and some snuggly socks and took the pets outside and read. I switched out books  and started Ecoholic. I want to save Rebecca as I am worried I may start getting too tired (been up since 3:00) and I want to be able to savor each word – stunning book!  The sun started going down so I brought the furry group in and read. I was on a role. The computer became free and I still read. Now, I need a break to rest my eyes, update my progress, participate in a couple of the still open memes and take a peek at how others are faring on this day of book love.

I didn’t have to think long about my answer to the musical mini-challenge hosted by Jill from Fizzy Thoughts. If I am feeling uninspired or down, I just blast the following song and dance with my dogs!!! My daughter runs – no dancing for her.

    I love Jason Mraz! Gosh! You should see him live. He’s such a great performer and I love the camaraderie with the rest of the band, particularly Toca!

    Oh well, fangirl moment over. Hope you’re having fun with your reading! Hello and good morning from the Philippines!

    Great music choice! You are doing great on your reading! If you get tired and slow down don’t worry and take a break :D.

    Congrates on becoming an Aunt. Echolic? Sounds interesting but I’m just going by the title since I’ve never heard of this book. Keep up the good work. I don’t think I’d be able to pull it off since I get really cranky when I’m sleep deprived.
