Good morning

Anyone awake yet? I think I am. Thank goodness for coffee. 

Unlike my usual plan of taking the night before off of work and doing things around the house in preparation for a weekend of reading, I decided to take a client. Okay, fine, no problem, I'll still have a few hours after that to get things done. But, I forgot that my writing group was meeting, and I didn't go last time (due to work), so I'd better show up. I set my alarm for 9 PM, figuring that would be fine. Well, it ended up being better than nothing, but not by much. Not that I didn't have a wonderful client and a nice time at writing group, but I need to either be better at planning things out (i.e. actually looking ahead at my calendar) or better at saying "no". 

So here I am, theoretically bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to get this 'thon on! 

Opening Meme

1. What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
The suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

2. Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?
Nothing in particular, I'm just looking forward to reading.

3. Which snack are you most looking forward to?
I bought a couple of blueberry doughnuts that are sounding pretty darn tasty.

4. Tell us a little something about yourself!
I'm a constant reader, Anglophile, book-obsessed lady, working only 1 job these days and very thankful for the relative sanity that that brings. My cats and I always look forward to days like this - full of sitting and laying around with blankets, reading and trying not to nap. Or, sometimes napping a lot more than reading, which is okay too. 

5. If you participated last time, what's one thing you'll do different today?
I keep forgetting to check, but this is somewhere around my 15th time doing this. This time around I'm much more relaxed about the whole thing, not overly worried about taking a break, or super-planning my TBRs, or going crazy with snacks. I just want to read a lot and chat with friends and enjoy the community of Dewey's. 

I'll be doing a few posts that will be continually changed to include a few hours each. It worked fairly well last time, and I liked not having to do a lot of repetitive updating.


  1. Good morning! That is amazing how many readathons you've done!! I blogged for years regularly, before blogging very sporadically the past couple of years, but I've somehow still managed only three readathons - ridiculous given how enjoyable they are!! I hope you have a great day reading (and napping). The blueberry donuts sound delicoius!

  2. Good morning, and thanks so much for stopping by! I'm always amazed I don't give myself more personal readathons throughout the year, seeing as I love them so much. As a sporadic blogger myself, I get it. Real life gets in the way of a virtual one more often than not. I'm about to have one of those donuts myself, with some more coffee. Will be heading over to your place now to check it out!
