On the very first night of the glorious long weekend I was about the take,
Happily, my family and friends have already begun to pitch in, bringing me food and medicine and otherwise assisting me in my time of infirmity. So that's what I can see if I try to look on the bright side. If I keep looking, I realize I have a million books here to read, and blogging is one of the few things I do that doesn't require much walking, so while vacation and, you know, actual happiness might be slightly beyond my reach, finally rejuvenating the blog (albeit a little morosely) and participating in next week's Bout of Books (how perfectly timed!) seem much more attainable. So, here's my official letter of intent to participate...
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 17th and runs through Sunday, August 23rd in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 14 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
So I'll be trying to do a little more reading next week instead of a little more binge watching TV series on Netflix while hosting my own pity party. Wish me luck!
So, how's everyone's summer been while I've been slaving away at my life? Have you ever broken a bone and lived to tell the tale? ;-)
Oh Megan, so sorry. That is what I call lousy luck! Hopefully, all the books u read will be excellent.ReplyDelete
Here's hoping! This is no time for subpar books. ;-)Delete
Ugh, I am so sorry to hear about your ankle. I hope it heals quickly.ReplyDelete
Thanks, me too!Delete
Hm. Did Blogger eat my comment? Eek!ReplyDelete
Maybe. Sometimes Blogger gets hungry. :-/ReplyDelete
Bummer! At least you're looking on the bright side and reading/blogging. Hopefully, you don't go too stir crazy. Glad you've got friends and family to help you out :) Heal quickly!ReplyDelete
What bad luck! I am so sorry, Megan. I know what it's like to have a broken ankle. It's hard being helpless--well, mostly helpless. At least it felt like that at times. I hope you have a quick and smooth recovery.ReplyDelete
