Thankfully Reading…most of the time!

I’ve been making an effort to spend a little less time on the internet and watching TV so that I could catch up on my November reading. As extra incentive I joined Thankfully Reading Weekend. It’s helped a bit, and I actually finished the second part of Kristin Lavransdatter today and am slightly less than 200 pages away from the end of The Savage Detectives.

I started reading vigorously at the beginning of this past week and tore through a large chunk of both my books, but by Wednesday I was slightly derailed. A two day Thanksgiving celebration kind of got in my way, but making dinner for my friends was very rewarding and I did some great bonding with one friend in particular who was my right hand..girl…(or I was hers – we plotted and piloted Thanksgiving dinner together.)

I had to spend most of yesterday recovering, (cooking is hard work!) and I intended to relax by reading of course. But…instead I watched (blush) Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra, and VH1’s countdown of the 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs… Yeah. I’m embarrassed.

Today I got back on track though and during a slow shift at the store I blasted through the last 100 pages of Kristen part 2, The Wife. I have all day tomorrow according to Thankfully Reading Weekend, and until Dec. 2nd to finish the Savage Detectives according to it’s due date, so I think ultimately I’m in good shape.

My review of Kristin Lavransdatter’s latest escapades (or lack thereof) coming soon. For the moment, I’ve got more reading to do.


  1. I know what you mean. I needed to relax after Thanksgiving too and reading isn’t actually as relaxing as watching movies and television!

  2. Glad we think alike Jill! 🙂
