Bout of Books Day 4
I read a bit this morning when I woke up, and then I decided that today I really need to get some chores done that I've been neglecting. So instead of lounging around reading, I've been trying to read Bleak House via audiobook while cleaning the kitchen.
This worked out pretty well for about an hour or so. Then some people came to fix our refrigerator, which has been acting up. After that I ate lunch and got a little distracted online... And then I went to a friend's house for a little sewing club we've started up. We sewed for a good three hours, and now here I am again to try to actually work on the kitchen and listen to the book.
I got some good cleaning and good reading/listening done, then read some more out of the book, and then listened some more while I was making dinner. All in all, a good reading day! I read nearly 100 pages. If I do as well in the next couple days as I did today, I should finish Bleak House before the end of the readathon. Even if I don't, I'll still have made really good progress. I only have about 300 pages to go.
