Read-A-Thon Welcome

Good morning.  It's read-a-thon!  I started exactly at 8AM EST reading, while preparing breakfast.  I started with Carta Marina, a poetry book and got to part two of the three part poem before reading the second book in the Sookie Stackhouse series.

I'm not sure the hubby appreciated me reading poetry out loud to him while we were cooking before Anna and The Girl made it here for read-a-thon.  But I did it anyway.

I don't know how much I'll be updating, but I'll be checking mini-challenges and trying to visit other participants.

We had a big breakfast of scrambled eggs with garlic and oregano, brown sugar sausage, bacon, and pancakes...with coffee naturally, though cocoa for The Girl.

The men are busy playing video game football while we're reading.  I think they're in heaven with read-a-thon comes around.

Have a great day and keep reading.

Remember, I'm reading for Poets.org.  If you want the details of my goal, check it out.

Good luck with the Read-A-Thon! A great idea to keep the boys happy while you guys are absorbed with your books as well.

Oh man, I wish I had been at your place for breakfast. I'm envious that you get to spend your day reading with Anna and The Girl. It helps to have someone around to be encouraging and keep you going. Have fun!

Video games are definitely the way to go for the men!

Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
May all the books appeal.
May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

Good luck today!

Thanks for breakfast! It was yummy! I think next time we need to make the boys play games and watch movies in another room...too distracting. LOL
