Whew! What a day of reading. Strangely enough, I have not finished a second book yet, although I’ve been reading/blogging/networking for a little over 14 hours. At the end of this thing, I will sit down with my notes and break down the time in terms of reading, listening, blogging and networking. I don’t have the energy (or capacity for partial hour math) at the moment.
I’ve going between my two current books and the audio. So far, this has been a lot of fun, although I have to give myself “permission” to read what I feel like reading (even if that means going back and forth between different books). No problem with that, so far, but I have confused the three storylines a couple of times (they all have a couple of themes and characters’ names in common). My goal is to finish both print books tonight and save the rest of the audio for the Acadia hike tomorrow 🙂
So far, I’ve spent most of the day outside on the deck, watching an eagle circle above and being thrilled to hear/see a hummingbird land on the feeder right next to my chair for a quick snack. (All bird watching was done while I listened to The Abstinence Teacher).
The weather in Ellsworth has been perfect today-nice and sunny. After a week of rainy, ho-hum weather, it was pure joy to soak up some rays. In fact, I think I’ll head back out for some afternoon sun while I try to finish at least one of these two books. Sunbathing (with SPF) and reading is my ultimate multitask combination 🙂
