Did you know today is National Readathon Day?? I have been meaning to blog about the fact that I am ready to participate in this readathon, sponsored by Penguin Random House. But the girls had a very short week of school scheduled, coupled with the fact that both Frances and Gloria got sick with croup and colds this week. So the week has gone way too fast!
So the readathon starts at 12noon and goes until 4pm. It's only four hours, which makes it very doable for someone like me. I can't wait to start reading.
I have two books ready to read for this afternoon... Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel is my "grown-up" read for this afternoon. Powerless by Matthew Cody is my teen book for the day. If by some chance I finish both I always have plenty of backups!
I will check in once an hour, starting at noon, and let you all know where I am. If you are participating too, chime in in the comments so I can cheer you on too! Have a great Readathon!
