Book Drunkard

“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?
– Nope!  I was free and clear!
5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
– Had a few interruptions.  Getting kids settled into read, getting kids snacks, scooping up puppy poop because I wasn’t paying attention while I was reading….
6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
– How much reading you can actually get done in a day!

9. Are you getting tired yet?

– When I’m feeling tired, I get up and do a mini-challenge or have a snack.  It works for me!
