Read-a-Thon 2013: I'm Doin' It!

Well, it's been a while (three years in fact--holy cow!!) since I've participated in a Read-a-Thon, but I've been seeing the tweets coming in; I'm awake; I'm in the middle of a book that I'm loving; I've got nine e-books checked out from the library; about as many samples of potential purchases on my Kindle, awaiting further perusal; plenty of unread books sitting on my shelves; and I suspect my hubby's going to be busy with one of his hobbies this weekend (weather permitting), so, what the heck? I'm going to go ahead and participate in Dewey's 24-hour Read-a-Thon. Now, I know full well that I'm not going to make it the full 24 hours (at start time I will have already been up for 12 hours...I'd prefer if you didn't do the math on that one), but I'm going to do what I can.

My starting read? Blessed Are the Cheesemakers by Sarah-Kate Lynch. I can't help but love a book that opens with: "'You can't hurry cheese. It happens in its own time and if that bothers you, you can just feck off.'" and follows up a bit later on with: "'If you can see the magic in cheese, you can see the magic in everything.'"

OK, so wish me luck, and happy reading to all the other participants!

OK, I can totally see the magic in cheese (especially when it gets all melty) so I guess I'm all set! So glad you're participating in the readathon--have fun!
