Read-A-Thon: And Away We Go . . .

It's that time again -- twenty-four hours of reading,  entering challenges, reading, meeting new friends, and reading!  If that sounds like your kind of fun, you can still join.  Visit the Dewey's Readathon site for all the details and to sign up.

I am reading from my home in SE Nebraska - a two acre plot we call "Green Acres" (see the "about" page to find out why).  It is fall harvest in Nebraska, so Hubs, who manages the local grain elevator, will be at work today.  Since we are empty-nesters, the only distractions in the house are the two dogs.  I really have no excuse for not getting some reading done.

My reading plan begins with Bible devotions, then I'll be moving on to the books I've already started:  Tapestry of Fortunes by Elizabeth Berg and You'll Get Through This by Max Lucado, and The Sallie House Haunting by Debra Pickman (a true story of a supposedly-haunted home we visited a couple weeks ago).  My experience from past read-a-thons tells me that I get more read if I switch between books frequently.

These books (and more) from my own shelves are waiting in the wings: 

Along with these books from the library:

I like to leave my options open - obviously.

So - time to pour a cup of coffee and get started on twenty-four glorious hours of reading.  Come back at 9:00 a.m. (Central Time) for my Puzzling Mini-Challenge.


  1. Morning Sis! Thanks for introducing me to the readathon - coffee is about ready and Dodger is looking at me like . . . really??? You are up??? It's Saturday???

  2. I love your pumpkins! What a fun addition!


  3. You should definitely read THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS (and before the movie comes out)! It's one of my favorite books of the year!
