Though I won’t start reading until I get up in the morning, the readathon officially started at midnight EST. So, I figured I’d post this now before I go to bed. I’ll be posting updates throughout the weekend, but I haven’t decided how often yet. I’m considering every 12 hours, but we’ll see.
For every readathon I’ve ever participated in, I always buy lots of snacks and easy to cook and eat one-handed meals. This 24 in 48 readathon is no different. While some of the noms I got are healthy, or healthy-ish, readathons are when I splurge on the not so healthy snacks I love but don’t allow myself to eat at any other time; not just because they’re unhealthy, but they’re also not cheap.
In addition to the stuff below, I’ve got some Chex Mix, cheese, crackers, grapes, and my secret stash of chocolate (Shhh! Don’t tell the Boyfriend. I believe every woman should have a secret stash of chocolate.) I’ve also got some mac and cheese, Boca burgers and fries, and my regular breakfast foods. Oh, and lots and lots of tea, but there’s always plenty of that. It’s probably way more food than I need, but I don’t want to have to make another trip to the store this weekend or waste money ordering take-out.
My TBR pile has changed slightly since I finished My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem on Tuesday:
- The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
- Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
- An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon
- The Paris Winter by Imogen Robertson
I’ve had a long week of submitting resumes, filling out applications, and going to job interviews in addition to getting trained for my new part-time job. So, I’ll be sitting or laying on the couch in my pajamas for most of the readathon. It’s also cold and Dresden the cat doesn’t like to be budged once he’s gotten comfortable on my lap, especially if I’ve got a blanket. However, I also intend on going for a short walk each day as well as taking breaks to move around and do other things while I listen to the audiobook of The Paris Winter.
For now, though, I’m going to sleep. See you in the morning! 🙂
