October Read-a-Thon: Wrap-up

So this is late because my boiling rage and frustration has finally cooled. This read-a-thon took place on my daughter’s birthday.  I was going to skip it, but the birthday girl herself insisted that I participate.  We had specific breaks planned for her celebratory dinner/dessert.  After that, everyone knew that I would go back to…

The Walking Dead: Season Seven Premier

*Warning*Warning*Warning* The following post is full of spoilers.  If you have not yet watched the episode, starting hitting the back button.  You have been warned, don’t complain to me if you continue reading this and learn something you didn’t want to. With that said, this is honestly the frist time I have not been happy…

October Read-a-Thon: Hour #19

I’m about to start a section called Derry: The First Interlude.  My guess is it’s some flashback to the 50’s or 60’s when our intrepid group of …warriors? kids? saviours?  When they first figured out about Pennywise and how he was killing.  But that’s just a guess. Hubby is back upstairs and bugging me again.  I honestly…

October Read-a-Thon: Hour #18

I’m finally having undisturbed reading time.  I’m also getting ever closer to the group returning to Derry.  This book is so much more than I exected.  But then it is 1153 pages long, I probably should have expected a lot.  

October Read-a-Thon: Hour #17

Hubby has finally gone to play his game with his buddy; the kids are in their rooms.  The pup is resting at the far end of the sofa with his head on a pillow.  I can get some quality reading done now…I hope.  I’ve got a Pepsi Throwback and my recliner in the reclined position.  Let’s…

October Read-a-Thon: Hour #16

The power came back, yay!  Hubby woke up, boo.  I’d like to make it further into the book than my family is allowing me to get.  Maybe I’ll make better headway in hours 20-24.  *sigh*  I’m still plugging away though! Happy reading!

October Read-a-Thon: Hour #15

Power still out. Hubby still snoring. Kid up my butt. I’ve got some chips to snack on and my trusty Nook Color to read from.  In the immortal words if Suicidal Tendencies, “You can’t bring me down!”

October Read-a-Thon: Hour #14

So…the power went out in my neighborhood. That puts a bit of a damper on [at least] this hour of reading. *sigh* It’s like some higher power is against me reading. Happy reading to everyone else!

October Read-a-Thon: Hour #13

Okay, so I only got 20 pages read the last hour.  Hubby is actually starting to get on my nerves.  I can’t be mad at him because: 1) he misses me, and 2) he’s trying to take a nap on the sofa beside me, but is having a helluva time falling asleep. Oh well, I’m…

October Read-a-Thon: Hour #12

The family [read: hubby] is getting needy.  He’s dying for my attention, but at the same time, he wants to leave me alone to read.  It is what it is.  I’ll keep on reading.  I still haven’t even gotten into the nitty-gritty of the story.  Maybe I’ll have an easier time during the back half…

October Read-a-Thon: Hour #11

I. Am. Tired. This is because of my terrible night’s sleep.  I caught about a 15-minute catnap and it has refreshed me for now.  I’m going to plug away and try to get more pages under my bet.  I’m actually excited to get into the creepier passages as it gets darker out.  Reading Stephen King at…

October Read-a-Thon: Hour #10

I have some company for hour 10! I’m using this hour to get back into a steady reading  groove.  I’m not concerning myself with the quantity of reading this time around.  However, I would like to make a decent sized dent into this monster 1000+ page beast of a book, lol. Still having fun! I…
