Post 24 Hour Readathon Post

ThayBooks

I did it! The conditions weren’t ideal but I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon. My stats for the day:

Books read:
Tiny Pretty Things (audio)No Mud No Lotus: The Art of Transforming Suffering
The Widow
Uprooted

Physical pages read: roughly 350
Books finished: 1 (but finished a second one on Sunday)
Hours slept: 6
Prizes won: A three month membership to Playster.

I usually can let the things that anti-choice protestors yell at me slide, but this time a middle-aged man called me “stupid” and it really got in my head.  Of course, I know I am not stupid, and he is gravely misinformed in the “facts” he was spouting off with which I refused to engage. But sometimes that anger can sit with you the rest of the day after this type of activism no matter what self care you perform.

Good news is that I feel much better now.  My sights are set on the blogger’s conference at BEA and then onto BookCon! Also, if you found me from the 24 Hour Readathon, welcome to my fledgling blog!
