Read A Thon Hour Sometime Past the Halfway Mark

I have been reading since about 9 am. Its now 11:50 with still 5 more hours of the Read A Thon to go. But with my sinus headache and the fact that the words are blurring on the page, I am going to take a nap! The alarm is set for 12:30 and hopefully, I will be able to open my eyes and read another book! It might be Dr. Suess but that counts!

I just finished reading The Sound of Sleighbells by Cindy Woodsmall and Loved IT! I didn't want to put it down, even when I drifted off to sleep while reading it. Luckily, Son woke me up to remind me that I needed to snore quieter and wasn't I supposed to be spending the day reading? HA!

I love reading about the Amish and I admire their ability to live their WAY. I know that I could not live without my laptop!

This book is about a woman who looses love and with the help of her family, finds her way back. Which is not unlike my life a while back. I was newly divorced and severely mentally beaten by my ex. I sold my house and moved into the apartment below my parents. With their love as well as others in the complex, I have been learning to love myself. With love of self, comes love of life and eventually (I hope!) the ability to share that love with a partner.

Thank you to all the cheerleaders who have stopped by the Nest! I love seeing the messages left to encourage me onward!


  1. Dr. Seuss definitely counts! Happy Reading when you wake up!

  2. You're so close now you can taste it! There's only one thing left to do: read! Read! Read! [and maybe dance a bit ;) )]

  3. Give me an R
    Give me an E
    Give me an A
    Give me a D

    What does it spell? READ!!

  4. You've done great so far. Ready for the last stretch?! Come on. GO GO GO. Cheering for you from Copenhagen, Denmark.

  5. "Dr Seuss" does count! Come on, girl, not long to go now! We are all rooting for you, so don't let us down! You can do it by speed reading. Just skip past all the three letter or less words!
    Thinking of you!

  6. Keep on reading till you reach your goal. I know you can do it. Push push push....
