Abducted by Readathon hours 7-9

We are getting close to the end of hour 9 in the readathon.

In the last three hours I cleaned my kitchen, cleaned out the freezer, mopped the floors (in spite of the fact that my trusty mop would grip on to the wet cloth thing properly), I cleaned out my dog feeder, dusted my bookshelf, and even wiped down the blades on my ceiling fan.

I also listened to the last two and a half hours worth of In The Company of Cheerful Ladies : The #1 Ladies Detective Agency and started the audio version of Unbearable Lightness : A Story of Loss and Gain.

Book club starts in just over two hours, I'm not dressed and I still need to dust and vacuum the living room!

Not to mention the fact that I still have some cooking to get started. I'm a little stressed and I feel a panic attack coming, but I'm determined to keep calm and just keep moving. That is why this post is going to be really short.

I hope everyone else is having a great readathon experience.

I wont be able to post another update until after book club so keep up all the hard work and I'll check back soon!

You know that British slogan: Keep Calm and Carry On, let that be your mantra today. You are going to have a fantastic book club meeting, and I'm amazed at how much reading you've gotten done (and cleaning... I really wish you were here!). ;)

It's great to see so many participants including audio in the mix. Such a smart way to get more books in.

I've heard Unbearable Lightness is a compelling read, mainly from Ellen :) Hope you're enjoying it.

The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
the more places you'll go.

Cheering you on from #cheercookie. Have a great read-a-thon!
