But not only is it a challenge having young children and participating in this challenge, but I am also doing a half-marathon in the morning! I am a walker, not a runner, so it will take me about three and a half hours to do that. However, I expect that when I am done, I will look forward to spending the rest of the day reading on the couch.
Without further ado, here is a picture of my weekend TBR pile.
I am not going to read these in the order they are pictured, but most likely in the order mentioned below (to get as many overdue library books out as possible!):
The Trouble Begins at 8: A Life of Mark Twain in the Wild, Wild West - Sid Fleischman
Jepp, Who Defied the Stars - Katherine Marsh
Doll Bones - Holly Black
The Cow-Tail Switch and Other West African Stories - Harold Courlander
Blink and Caution - Tim Wynne-Jones
The Flight of the Maidens - Jane Gardam
The Orchid Thief - Susan Orlean
Real Solutions for Real Moms - Kathy Ireland
Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids - Dr. Kathy Markham
So Brave, Young and Handsome - Leif Enger
Love Medicine - Louise Erdrich
I am really looking forward to the reading. I'll be sharing reviews of them as I finish, but they will be shorter than my usual posts. I still have a couple of hours more work to get done this afternoon, plus some errands and cleaning to do, and a blog post I am hoping to get written this afternoon, so I am anticipating beginning around 5pm. I can't wait to see what others are reading!
