May 18, 11pm.
I have been reading this week, though not posting much about my reading. I did not finish any reading on Sunday, the last day of the May Shadow Lounge Readathon, because I was corralled for a family trek to see Grandma for Mother’s Day. I always think I ought to get some decent reading in on excursions like that, but it never happens. But I finished a couple books on Monday and Tuesday, at least. I spent a lot of time doing garden work during the warm, sunny parts of Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday,But now the weather is cool and wet again, so I’m back to the books. In fact I am staying in and NOT weeding tomorrow, so I am doing an informal readathon over the next 24hrs, to see how many books I can finish between now and tomorrow (the 19th) midnight.
