Happy Sunday to all. I just came back from a staff retreat on beautiful Whidbey Island. A lovely place in a beautiful setting, and the food was fabulous.
I am very excited to be joining another read-along. This one is organized by Emily at Evening All Afternoon and Richard at Caravana de recuerdos, two of the wonderful people who were part of the 2666 readalong that took place over the last five months. We are reading Kristin Lavransdatter by Nobel literature prize winner Sigrid Undset. This is a novel I’ve wanted to read for at least a decade but it is a trilogy over 1100 pages long. The readalong, breaking the reading into a book a month through the end of the year, makes it less daunting. I’ll be reading with a group of people who are opinionated, willing to express their thoughts and great fun.
I am also joining the upcoming Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon as a reader for the first time. I have a workshop to go to on that Saturday but will spend as much time as I came reading during the rest of the day and into the night. I have started gathering a group of books from my TBR piles, and from the library, that I hope will keep me engaged. I’ve even loaded a couple onto my MP3 player for walks with the dog. What about you? Will you be joining in?
