A crisp, gray Saturday in Brooklyn, spent being cozy on the couch reading all day while my boyfriend sat next to me having his own World of Warcraft marathon. Lots of delicious snacks all day. College football on in the background all afternoon. A lovely way to spend a day.
I finished three books from my original stack of Readathon book choices: Letter to My Daughter by Maya Angelou, Anne of Ingleside by LM Montgomery, and An Age of License by Lucy Knisley. I enjoyed all of them very much. I would have probably finished one or two more books if college football hadn’t been distracting me – that’s an advantage of the spring Readathon.
I participated in several mini-challenges, which I posted on tumblr because I didn’t want to spam my blog feed. (Mid-day I realized smarter Readathoners than myself were just updating their original kickoff post with their progress and mini-challenges. A great idea that I’ll try during the next one.) I had a great time connecting with other readers on Twitter and on our blogs.
I hope everyone had a lovely Readathon or just a lovely Saturday, wherever and however you spent it. Saturdays in October are a gift.
