Never enough time

To do or participate in all the things I find interesting.

Sassymonkey just posted about the 24 hour read-a-thon happening on Saturday and don't I wish I had the time to participate.  It sounds like so much; twenty-four hours of nonstop reading.  Is there anything better?

Honestly, I don't think so.  But I have plans and if I participate in Dewey's challenge, I won't be able to do anything else. Hmm... maybe I can do a mini-challenge, like read from 1 p.m. on Saturday to 1 a.m. Sunday morning.  I'm liking the sound of that.

OK, so now I just need a reading list...

The Amadeus Net by Mark Rayner 
The Shadow Queen by Anne Bishop
Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
a chapter or four of Bleak House by Charles Dickens
Cook with Jamie by Jamie Oliver
The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice
Dry Storeroom No. 1 by Richard Fortey
and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows

I'm so excited now for my *modified* challenge!

I'm hoping (aiming?) to get in about 10 hours of reading. If I get that in I'll be happy. If I get more than that in I'll be really happy.

(My word verification is "miltred" which amused me for some reason.)

Miltred? Ha; I wonder if the word verification program ever repeats itself?

Your goal of ten hours is a good one; I hope you make it. I imagine I'll get about six or seven hours of reading in during my twelve.

I am changing my hours around a little bit for the same reason. In fact, I should really be reading now, but no, instead I am here bloghopping! Whoops!


Have fun!
