Read-a-thon: 11:15am post

Well, Joanne Fluke is starting to grow on me….I will definitely be posting a review of the book later this week — after I have caught up on sleep 🙂

After a 20 minute power nap……I have managed to complete about 2/3 of the book.

book currently reading: Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke
number of hours read so far: 3
number of pages read so far: 224 out of 324

I am going to take a quick shower – and then I will finish reading the book before posting again.

I must say, however, that this is SO much fun. Reading is such a solitary activity (which I LOVE — I am a hermit in disguise) — but doing this singular activity, knowing that there are many others concurrently reading at the same time, makes it feel like a community event. I am reading for me, most definitely – but I also feel like I am a part of a team and my measly efforts somehow translate to a greater purpose.

Many bloggers are reading for a charity. I plan to do the same. I do not know which charity – or how to quantify my giving — but it will definitely have something to do with literacy in America. If you have any suggestions — I would love to hear!!

    One of the reasons I like reading so much is because it is a solitary activity. I’m a very solitary person but this group thing is a very nice change. It makes reading so much more exciting! Keep up the good work!

    I agree with you Molly. I like being with people to a certain point, then begin to feel drained. I need solitary time.
    You are doing great. I think a shower is in my near future too!

    Chocolate cookies, yum.

    I think it would be lovely to do a real life read-a-thon sometime, where everyone spent an hour getting to know one another then agreed to just chill, feel no pressure to be sociable or ‘on’ and just read together. I love to read in the same room as others (like my mum).
