BG has been having a tough couple of days - either she is coming down with something, she is growing, or she is pushing out those 2 year old teeth. We've been doing a lot of extra cuddling and a lot of snuggling through tears. But we've had some fun too. My mom came over one day and on Saturday, we attended our town's Harvest Festival and had fun in the bounce house, riding ponies, petting various farm animals, and selling bottles of water with our church to raise money to build a well.
What did I read this week? It took me longer than I hoped to read Margaret Atwood's latest The Heart Goes Last. I did manage to squeeze in We Should All Be Feminists as part of A More Diverse Universe.
I'm currently reading An Unnecessary Woman, also for a More Diverse Universe. Then I really am planning to read Chris Cleave's Gold before the 24 Hour Readathon starts on Saturday! You are readathoning, right? It's so fun and you don't have to read for 24 hours. Feel free to sign up and then read however long you can.
What are you reading this week?
So glad you're joining us for readathon!!! Looks like you have some great stuff on the go!ReplyDelete
I'm so excited! Thanks for all of your hard work, Andi! :)Delete
The Atwood will keep you rivetedReplyDelete
I liked it but it actually felt a bit long for me!Delete
Sounds like a fun festival! I would love to read both Gold and The Heart Goes Last.ReplyDelete
I have never done a readathon and would love to do this one, but we have a college visit on Saturday - maybe next time!

Bummer! There will be another one in April if you are free. They are such a lot of fun.Delete
I loved Atwood's newest book Lindsey. I hope your little one is feeling better this week.ReplyDelete
Thanks Diane! Hopefully she will get back to her usual self in the next few days.Delete
I really need to take some inspiration from you with joining the readathon... I don't know, something just scares me about them. Haha! Sounds silly right?!ReplyDelete
Ahh, sorry to hear you've been having some tough times with the youngest - it's tough when you can't tell exactly what the issue is. Hopefully this week is going well :-)

Do it!!! It's so much fun, even if you can only read for part of the day.Delete
I think we figured it out. Those 2 year molars are so painful!!
The harvest festival sounds like fun! I love things like that :) It might be too late for that in NY now though - we got our first snow today!ReplyDelete
