Sunday Salon

sunday salonAnother read-a-thon has come and gone. I didn’t try to read for the full 24 hours, so I don’t have a reading hangover. I did pretty well, as I read and finished Cress by Marissa Meyer, a chunkster, yesterday. My daughter finished two books and my son finished a comic. We ate, relaxed, and really enjoyed ourselves yesterday. I’m thankful to Ana for reminding me what the read-a-thon is all about with her post about Dewey. Thanks also go to Heather and Andi for pulling off another fantastic event.

Now that the read-a-thon is over, it’s time for me to start writing reviews. I have about five books to review including a few DNFs. I plan on spending the next few hours writing reviews, reading, and nursing my migraine.

What are you up to this Sunday?

  1. That’s a nice relaxed way to join a readathon! I tend not to sign up if I don’t think I have the time and energy to get through multiple books but perhaps that’s the wrong attitude. An excuse to curl up with a book is never a bad thing 🙂

  2. It’s wonderful that your kids got involved with you!

    Today I’m catching up on some reviews and a few chores and trying to visit the blogs of some read-a-thoners, as I was trying to avoid too much blog/internet distraction during the event yesterday.

  3. Interesting. I’ve never written a review of a DNF. I should, I think.

    And now I must be off to check out Ana’s thoughts on the readathon….

  4. Sounds like you had a lovely day! I will be doing much something similar – catching up on end of Read-a-thon blog posts, drafting some new reviews, and of course some more reading. Too bad about the migraine, feel better soon 😦

  5. Hope you’re feeling better soon. I’m glad Cress worked as a read-a-thon pick and that the kids got involved, too.

  6. Feel better soon, Vasilly! (I was a bit under the weather this weekend, too, and had to spend some time just resting.) I’m glad your enjoyed the read-a-thon (I have yet to participate in one as a book blogger). This coming week, I will be busy working on some reviews as well.

  7. You’ve reminded me that I really need to read Meyers. For some reason I keep putting it off despite the positive reviews I’ve read of the series.

  8. Sounds like it was a wonderful event all around! I spent my Sunday trying a new recipe for granola bars, which happily for my peace of mind came out AWESOME. Completely successful experiment (and now I am very full, having munched on bits of granola bar all afternoon).

  9. This sounds like a great read-a-thon! I’ll have to add it to my list next time around. Can’t wait to read your review for Cress as that’s on my Whislist/TBR pile!

  10. I have way too many books to review too :p The more I let them pile up the more I avoid writing them. I REALLY need to get on them! Hope you had a good Sunday!

  11. I spent today with a headache too. I think I need to find a comfier reading spot when I’m going to do it for hours on end! But the readathon is sure worth it. I love feeling the friendship and camaraderie of the day. I can’t wait for October!

  12. Way to go! Although nursing a migraine isn’t how you should end the readathon. I love that you were able to involve your children. To me, that is the best outcome of the event. I’m really hoping that I can participate in October, and that our schedule will allow my kids to participate as well.

    Good luck with those reviews. I didn’t participate and still have three reviews to write!

    Have a good week!

  13. Sorry about the migraine, and so hope you’re feeling better today!
    I thought this read-a-thon was absolutely lovely too; I’m so glad you all enjoyed it! I bet you’re like me and have lost count of how many read-a-thons you’ve participated in now, huh?

  14. Congratulations on participating again this year. Dewey passed away around the time I started blogging so I didn’t really know her (unfortunately). I’d like to think she would feel pretty honored that the readathon goes on in her memory every year. What reader wouldn’t want to leave a legacy like that?

  15. i’ve never done a read a thin – I’m honestly not sure I could manage it unless I locked myself in a room all day and refused to do any housework, cooking, shopping etc
