I’ve had a busy but productive day so far! I was up at 7:30 in order to drop Matt off to the train station early :(, then I went to buy snacks, pick up my library books, popped into town, and then finally sat down to read about 1:10.

Minus those ten minutes or so, I’ve been reading for the entire Readathon so far but I haven’t been very focused because we’re trying to finish Season 2 of Once Upon a Time before my Amazon Prime trial ends today!  I did finish my first book, and Once Upon a Time is nearly finished now, so hopefully once I cook dinner I can really concentrate and make some progress.

Up next: The Assassin’s Blade

Okay so tv has clearly frazzled my brain.  My family decided today should be a TV day, so after Once Upon a Time ended, we watched a Disney film followed by Avatar.  I’ve been trying to read at the same time but I think that was a mistake because now I’ve ended up with a headache and not really achieved either!

I’m going to keep reading for a little while, but I think I’m nearing the point where I’m going to have to cave and sleep.  Indulging in some chocolate in the hope that’ll keep me awake!

  1. Hi there! I’m cheering you on with #TeamHughes. Hope you are having fun and still feel motivated. But I can relate that it’s a bit hard when you’re competing with an expiring membership. Good luck! 🙂
