Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon is one of my favorite bookish events. I believe I’ve participated in the last 5. So sitting this one out was a tough decision. Except it wasn’t.
Originally, we were going to be moving yesterday. Then when we weren’t, we were still going to be packing because we’re moving next weekend. Plus I had a birthday party to attend. And then I ended up going out to dinner with friends. And I still have the attention span of a fruitfly when it comes to reading anyway.
While I was a little sad not to be able to participate, I was really okay with the decision because of everything else going on in my life. I tried to pop on twitter and see how everyone else was doing and that was enough for me. I know – as everyone likes to tell me – that my life is changing in a huge way and I’ve accepted that I’m going to be shifting my focus from myself to this little guy I can’t wait to meet. And I’m ready. I have no idea what those changes will end up being, but I am completely ready for them to come. It’s a wonderful feeling, really.
That said, I still have hopes that I can do the fall Readathon ( when I’ll have a 5 month old…).
So, now that I’ve gotten all mushy and personal, tell me how YOUR Readathon was.
