Though the Weather Outside is Frightful...
It is really okay because in not too many hours it will be time for the Dewey's Read-a-thon! According to the Weather Channel it is supposed to rain all weekend, but since I will probably be spending a lot of time either on the computer or maybe doing a bit of reading, I really don't care! (Or, I am going to pretend that I don't care, at least.)
I have been following the read-a-thon since the beginning, but with the exception of the very first one, I have never officially signed up. I am not sure why that is, but I am always around. Last one I had just joined Twitter, so I was commenting on blogs and spending large amounts of time chatting with people. It was really a lot of fun! So, if you are like me and haven't committed to either cheer-leading or readng, you can still participate, discover new blogs, and maybe get some reading done.
In the spring, I didn't read at all, but I think I might sneak some pages this time. I sort of wish I had thought ahead and made a 'maybe' pile and took a picture, but I think I hate commitments... That's the same with reading as other avenues of my life. The only for sure I am considering is Geektastic edited by Holly Black and Cecil, uh, I'd need to look her last name up to make sure I am spelling it right. It's due back to the library on Monday and I think it has holds, so no renewals. Otherwise, I am not going to make any plans. It's not like I have any shortage of books on my TBR pile and out from the library.
Otherwise, I will likely be cheering people on. I am going to skip Six Sentence Saturday for this week, because I doubt anyone will be interested. If I do in fact read for the read-a-thon I will just review the books I read in that method. I will do my Sunday post, though, because I really like that post.
Anyway, happy reading to everyone! The piles I have seen are crazy, but I think everyone is going to have a lot of fun!
