It’s been pretty quiet here on the blog lately. This reflects the incredibly hectic pace of my life the past two weeks. I flew into Florida on April 1st and started working the next day. It’s been quite an adjustment going from working three days a week, where I just was helping someone else with their cases to working 5 days a week with a caseload of my own. Yes, I have supervision, but the primary responsibility is on me. In fact, I’m going into the office a little later today to catch up on work I didn’t have time to finish on Friday.
I haven’t finished a book in weeks – heck, I’ve barely been reading at all lately. The books I’ve been working on are good, but they all are pretty slow paced. I think what I need is so good, quick, YA to bust me out of this slumptitude. I just went onto my library’s website and reserved Tamora Pierce’s Mastiff. It’s the final book in the Beka Cooper Trilogy. I read the first two books in December and really enjoyed them. I don’t think my library had the last one then, but they’ve gotten it in now.
It will probably be a few days before it’s ready, but that’s fine. Maybe in to meantime I can put a dent in some of my other books.
I also signed up for Dewey’s Read-a-thon on April 21st. I figured that would be a great time to get some serious reading done. I don’t plan on reading for the whole 24 hours, but a few nice blocks of reading time would be nice. I’ll see if I can arrange for the hubby to be out that day so I don’t have to explain this weird phenomenon of a “read-a-thon” to him!
Have you participated in a read-a-thon before? Are you doing this one? Any tips are appreciated!
