Read-a-Thon ~ Ahh… Peace and Quiet!

Sammi has gone to her friend’s for the night, and I just sent Mags and Gwen to the Y for open swim and told ’em not to come back until it closed (4 o’clock). Now, maybe I can get some real reading done!

After upturn laundry baskets (hunting for bathing suits), and piteous cries bemoaning their wretched fate of forced march to their dooms in the swimming pool of torment, my ears are ringing from the lack of sound. The starting and stopping of reading has made me nearly forget which book I’m even reading at the moment!

So I thought I’d take a sec for an update. I’m going to forego another until I finish How to Be a Villian, which is funny! I keep thinking about Austin Powers’ Dr. Evil, and many other evil-doers of film and TV. Even a few of the book giants, too 😀

In the pursuit of evil henchmen, the mean English teacher is highly recommended, as she (or he) has the power to make heroes wilt at the mere thought of her (or him).

Reading Update:

Empire Falls by Richard Russo ~ finished
The Magician’s Nephew by C. S. Lewis ~ Chapter 4, read.
How to Be a Villian by Neil Zawacki ~ pages 88 – 121 read, 39 more to go.

and Maggie’s back. She dropped her swimsuit and had to come back for it. lol… What a day!

  1. I LOVE that button!! You’re doing great so far: keep it up!

  2. I agree with Eva – cool button. Did you like Empire Falls!??! It’s one of the few books I’ve read twice (and that wasn’t on purpose – I just forgot, I think.)

    • I liked Empire Falls, but it was definitely a slower paced book, not one to read straight through without stopping. It took me about a week to finish it. But it was good 🙂

  3. Can’t imagine how anyone manages to read much with their family around – I hope you get a lot read while they’re having fun!
