2017 Reading Challenge

In an effort to get myself back to some sense of normalcy, I’ve decided that reading is the best way to attempt it.  I’m going to do my best to meet this challenge.  Thank you Book Riot for creating the 2017 Reading Challenge List, and thank you to Novelknight for coming up with this one: This is…

Happy-Sad-Mad

So, I’ve been having issues with the new job.  One manager in particular, whom everyone in the place hates, has been giving me trouble with my schedule.  Now I found out I have to resign.  I have to have surgery on my foot and because I haven’t passed my probationary period, they cannot approve a…

Review: It

Review: So it only took me forever, but not because the book was bad (obviously).  I’m just a slacker.   I don’t know what to say about it other than it is another gem from the master, Stephen King.  It was well written and had the right amount of creepiness, horror and humor.   There are…

Reading progress update: I’ve read 1000 out of 1168 pages.

So close I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!  This books is so creepy, but good.  I can’t wait to finally finish it. Original post: Virago77.booklikes.com/post/1611423/reading-progress-update-i-ve-read-1000-out-of-1168-pages

Still A Slacker…

Another box arrived. I’m hesitant to open it because I have things to get done arpund the house. *sigh*     Chevy is keeping an eye…er, chin, on it for me. Original post: Virago77.booklikes.com/post/1611187/still-a-slacker

Readathon: Hours 16-18

I made some good progress on It today, but I am beat and I have many things to do around the house to make sure I’m ready for my early Monday.  Plus I have to send time with my birthday girl. Though I couldn’t do the full 24, I have fun with the hours I managed. …

Readathon Update

Just under 16 hours in.  I managed to listen to It on audiobook before work, during my commute, and during my lunch break.  I went to an early b-day dinner with my my daughters and daughter-adjacent. and now I’m in my pjs in my bed with my Chevy enjoying more of that audiobook while I read…

Readathon: Hour 14

I finally made it home.  I’ve got n my PJ’s, my tummy is comfortably full, and now I can relax and read along while listening to the audiobook for a while. I think I may switch books in the next hour or so.

Readathon: Hour 0

I’m starting early because I have an 8-hour shift at work. *eyeroll*

Readathon TBR

I figured out my TBR pile. As I did last October, I’m going with a horror theme. I really need to finish It, and I found some others to switch to if I need a break from killer clowns. I downloaded the audiobook for It so that I can listen while I get ready for…

Reathathon Time!

Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is this Saturday, and sadly, I have to work and 8-hour shift (that’s what I get for rejoining the workforce), and afterwards, I’m taking my kid out for an early birthday dinner.  The October readathon falls on or around her birthday every year, and usually it’s not an issue.  My kid always…

Such a slacker…

…the new job has kept me busy, beat, and slightly stressed, so this lovely box of books has been neglected.  But my Leeloo had decided to call attention to it by making it her new nap spot.   So cute; such a menace.  And now I’ve realized that I never posted my book hauls for…
