Read Read Readathon Begins!!

Readathon started about 10 minutes ago, I'm ready! Most of my days already qualify as a readathon anyway, but today is special :) This is my very first readathon and I'm really happy to be participating. I don't have any theme in mind, and as a matter of fact I can not decide what to read! Which might turn out to be in my favour since I have lots of options if I get sick of one thing.

Right now I'm already in the middle of a book called "Lover Enshrined", which is the 6th book in the Brotherhood of the Dagger series by J.R. Ward. I'm also contemplating reading the Shrodinger's Cat and Illuminatus Trilogies by Robert Anton Wilson which have been staring at me from my book shelves for years. I did get partway through the Illuminatus Trilogy once but I was so clueless about it, I thought I'd better start with the earlier work. In addition, I have a non-fiction book called "The Spiritual Anatomy of Emotion" from the library. It's quite a tome. And then there are about 50 books on my shelves that I haven't read yet, so I have lots to choose from if I feel like I need a change. I think I will start by finishing Lover Enshrined, because I am a bit compulsive when it comes to finishing books before starting a new one.

I admit, I didn't prepare well for this readathon, other than being lucky enough to have just done grocery shopping. But I have a number of take out places just around the corner if I don't want to whip anything up. I'm very good at making quick meals, however, and I have smoothie ingredients and even meal replacement drinks, so I think I'm pretty freaking set!! Good luck to everyone else participating, I'll be tweeting as I go as well as updating here on my blog as much as I can. Unfortunately my netbook died this week, so I'm having to use my desktop to do it (I can tweet from my iPhone), which is difficult for me because I have chronic pain. But it should be okay since I'll just need it every so often to update and cheer on my "buddies".

Happy Reading!


I sometimes write things that I don't really mean or believe. These are not to be taken literally, nor as definitive statements about me or my beliefs. Thoughts and emotions are transient, and I reserve the right to change my mind, generalize, exaggerate, give strong opinions, or write other possibly offensive statements. I don't lie, but I may say something that's not true to check whether I believe it or not, or to make a point. Call it creative license. This is my blog, and do have the right to say what I want. I'm using it in creatively therapeutic ways. Whatever the reader may think of me and my words, please believe that my core intentions are always good and I never willingly hurt anyone.
