I am a participant and one of the moderators for the Shadow Lounge Readathon group, and our monthly readathon is this weekend.
We started yesterday, at 4pm in my time zone (6pm Eastern Time), and I was at the laundromat then, so I read a bit of a book I borrowed from my mom, but I barely started it. I listened to
How to Break a Dragon’s Heart, by Cressida Cowell
and read a bit of several books, but I haven’t finished another one yet.
Raising Steam, by Terry Pratchett. 30
Victory, by Susan Cooper. Page 74
Babbitt, by Sinclair Lewis. Page 168
A Brief History of Seven Killings, by Marlon James. Page 30
The Pier Falls and other stories, by Mark Haddon. Page 35
The Corporation Wars: Dissidence, by Ken MacLeod. Page 205
Chasm City, by Alastair Reynolds. Page 276
I am tempted to start another book, but I want to finish a few of these first.
My snacks for this portion of the day include banana chips (from Walmart, made with coconut oil, very tasty) and Little Debbie orange cake snack bars. I also had a Coke, which I decided to finish off when I heard a rather large bee hovering in my living room. I’m not the screaming type, but I still REALLY do not like having bees or wasps in my apartment. So I’m hiding with my books and laptop in my room, at least till I have a plan worked out for ridding my apartment of the bee. (I think it is an orange-banded bumblebee, but whatever it is, it’s big and fuzzy, and not welcome indoors.)
