Return to Reading

Took a longer break than I thought I would - two games in the rain (lost both 1-0, which is my least favourite score in the world) - and then as I was driving home, my mother called to say her plane had just landed and could I pick her up. Never got the email she sent, so it's lucky I was heading in the right direction at the time.

The Reading Child Mini-Challenge:

This is a good one for me, as I have stacks of pictures of me as a child reading a book. This is my all-time favourite, however, as I like how I look slightly maniacal :)

Mid-Event Survey

1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?
I was a little tired earlier, but I've caught a second wind and am ready for more reading!

2) What have you finished reading?
I've finished Vinyl Cafe Diaries by Stuart McLean and Bad Boy by Peter Robinson.

3) What is your favorite read so far?
I'm a sucker for Stuart McLean, even though I've read the stories before.

4) What about your favorite snacks?
Haven't had much to snack on yet - a lousy sandwich from the gas station when I picked my mother up at the airport and some cold chicken. I'm just about to order pizza though, and my stomach is rumbling.

5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!
I lost a lot of time with hockey and airport duties, so I haven't been surfing yet. I'm looking forward to doing some visiting and cheerleading later tonight.

Hour 14 Mini-Challenge

This was good timing for a challenge, as I'm just about to start reading Walk Like A Man, a book about coming to age through the music of Bruce Springsteen. I've had it sitting to the side, but I've been on a Springsteen kick in preparation for the concert in November, so this seemed like a perfect opportunity to finally read the book. And who doesn't like a little forearm porn!


  1. I'm grinning right back at her the little cutie. Probably makes me look a bit maniacal myself. What must the neighbor's think seeing me sitting here on the porch giggling and me 50 something. Love it!

    thanx for participating in The Literacy Challenge

    1. Thank you for offering the challenge - it was a great one!

  2. Good luck with the rest of the Read-a-Thon! Hope you are having tons of fun!

    1. A day spent reading is always great fun - I hope you're having a great Read-a-Thon!
