  2. Oh boy yes, a long and tiring week for me too!

    I still haven't read anything by Joyce Carol Oates, but I have one of hers now so I should be able to fix that. I hear she's very good?

    1. It seems that a lot of people had a long week!

      This is my first time reading Oates. She's one of those authors I can't believe I haven't read before!

    1. Why don't we appreciate naps when we are kids and are able to have them all the time?!?

    1. I think readathoning should always be followed with napathoning. :)

  10. I wanted to participate in the readathon this past week, but with having just got a new puppy, I knew I wouldn't be able to.

    Hope you have a great week and get in your naps!!!

  13. I am interested in your thoughts on We Were The Mulvaneys. I saw this title a few years back but hesitated to pick it up. Hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

  14. I've been wanting to try Joyce Carol Oates, too. I almost bought her memoir about losing her husband suddenly, but I was afraid it would be really depressing. I may still pick it up.

    1. That does sound like it would be a tough read. There are so many writers I still haven't read!!

    1. You definitely deserve a nap! Maybe you should have two naps (you did finish two papers....).

  16. I understand all the exhaustion. I think it's going to take me a while to recover from Saturday's readathon ;) What a great time though! I hope you're enjoying that Oates, that's one of my faves!
