105 Ways to Give a Book

How I’m Doing II

My continuing schedule:
2:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.Read — Bloom.
5:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.Break to preserve my sanity.
6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.Read — Blue.
7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.Dinner and emails.
8:30 p.m. – 11:30 p.m.Read — Peeled.
11:30 p.m. – 2:30 a.m.Sleep.
2:30 a.m. – 4:30 a.m.Unexpectedly wake up and can’t get back to sleep. Usual option — reading — seems repugnant. Spend the newly found time catching up on email.
4:30 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.Sleep.
8:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.Regret decision to spend two hours online in the early morning. Blog.
Other thoughts: I found myself wanting to clean the house rather than read. If only I could bottle the feeling and use it in the future. I decided to stick with the one-word title books purely on a whim. It’s amazing that I have so many checked out from the library and waiting on my review shelf.

Oh, today is my birthday. Not yet forty.

Let me be the first to say, “Happy birthday!”

(’Cause I think I’d be in a fair spot of trouble if I weren’t.)

Happy Birthday!! Hope it's a great one filled of things you want to do (even if that is cleaning!) :)

Completely belated and wistful that I'm not doing the reading challenge, but Happy Birthday anyway...
