....READATHON! My very first. EVER. I usually don a sadface when I hear about all your readathons and staying up for 24 hours to do nothing but read. I ACHE with jealousy. Because simply put: I don't have that kind of time. My readathons mostly consist of my head being chained to a phone at work, answering calls from morons and trying to get in a couple pages here and there. (Not to entirely discredit work, though. I read a whole 350 pages there on Wednesday!) But never in the comfort of my own home.
THIS CHANGES NOW.
Hubs is at work. The heat is pumping (because it's mothertrucking cold out, you guys). I've got my relaxation swag on: hoodie and flannel pants. Coffee's brewing. Warm Cinnamon Sugar Cookie creamer is on standby. COUCH LOOKS INVITING (holla on busting out the Christmas blanket a bit early!) Yep. I'm thinking this is a perfect day for a readathon.
Now I don't know how fast I'll be able to get through these, as by "nothing to do today," I mean I have to do laundry and clean my bathrooms and run to the store and fix dinner ("nothing" always comes with an asterisk over here.) But DAMNIT, I'm gonna give it my all. I've got from about 9:30am to 4:30pm. Then maybe again from like 7 - 10pm. A good 10ish hours, give or take. Here are my aspirations for the day, lofty as they may be. I tried to keep it short.
I'll be listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire while doing my miscellaneous chores, so that should fill the gaps a little.
Now, if by some divine baby Jesus miracle (I do have my Christmas blanket, you know) I finish ALL FOUR of these books, I'll definitely update this post. But it's not looking likely.
Off I go.
