How was your New Year?
It’s been such a quiet week! Probably because, other than the few hours I had to work, my nose has been stuck in a book, or in my Kindle. Of course, with the New Year comes all the inspirational messages of just how GREAT we can be. I stopped doing New Year’s Resolutions because I always kick myself when I, for various reasons, do not remember to do them. Or just plain don’t want to!
As a matter of fact, instead of dieting, I am eating the cupcake that is large enough for two people today, WITH my White Mocha Cappucino. That’s enough sugar to keep me going through this readathon this weekend! Those are the kind of realistic goals I enjoy! How many Starbuck’s coffees can I even drink in a month? I think I changed my mind about resolutions 😉
No, but really. I think resolutions can actually hurt when we fail at them. I know I feel like a bigger failure when I failed than I did at the ending of the last year! So, I’m just going to be like Skeletor.
I’m currently trying to read four books this weekend, so I’m going to keep this short! GL to everyone doing the readathons!
Reading plans this weekend:
I still have to read Life and Lit’s Jan BoTM, The Hate u Give which I found at the library! I also was able to find Hamlet and Persuasion. I’m not going to push myself to read these three this weekend but they’re on my to read for the month, at the very least.
Bout of Books has been wonderful so far. I haven’t joined in any challenges, due to lack of time, but I’ve done better this go around than I have in years!
Also there’s the Winter’s Respite Readathon.
If you’re joining Winter’s Respite, you may also want to join in on the next #24in48 will be taking place on Jan. 27-28, 2018!
If you’re new to 24in48, this is the basic gist: beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, participants read for 24 hours out of that 48-hour period. You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, four hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six four-hour sessions with four hour breaks in between, whatever you’d like.
Hope your Jan is warming up, or at least you have a good book to keep your thoughts warm!
