This Week – All good streaks must come to an end

Happy Easter everyone! Gage has already found his eggs and is playing around with gifts.

BIG NEWS After a year, 4 months, and 15 days my book a day streak has come to an end. I’d been thinking about it for a few weeks, even intending to purposely end it last week before reading a book for homeschooling and realizing that I continued without even trying, lol. I went longer than I thought I would and am actually quite proud of myself for this challenge. There are also the obvious downsides (where do I find the time) but also the small ones that showed up (am I choosing a book for its quality or its length). I found myself giving up family time for reading one too many times.

What finally tipped me over the edge? I spent most of yesterday with a sinus migraine in a dark room, moving as little as possible. By the time I got around to being mobile, I wanted to give my full attention to my guys, at least as much as the headache allowed. It was a fitting way to end my book a day challenge, but I still feel that small twinge of regret.

What I read – Hopefully I’ll get reviews posted this week.

Posts this week

My newest challenge!

Currently reading

Movies

TV

We watched the first three episodes of the network show Ghosts and thought they were funny.

We’re also into this season of Survivor, we’re seen them all. We each picked a winner in the first episode and all three have made it to the merge.

Plans for the weekend

It’s cold here! And the last two times I’ve spent an hour or two outside this week I’ve ended up with terrible sinus migraines, so I’m homebound today.

What about you? Anything exciting this Easter weekend?

    The only time I read a book in a day, is when I take part in a readathon (Dewey’s is coming up 30 April!!) and if I’m on holiday. Otherwise, it takes me 3 – 7 days or even more to read a book.

    Sooo that makes you a superhero in my eyes and even superheroes need to take a break and recharge!

    Have a good week and spend some time with your family, the books can wait a bit!

    Wow! I hope you feel proud of reading a book a day for such a long time. I used to read a book a day during school summer vacations to motivate the children at my school to do the same. Congratulations on your achievement!

    Sorry it’s so cold there. We’ve had a lot of cold weather here in France. It actually snowed twice!

    I’m sure it’s a little bittersweet to end your book-a-day challenge, but you did so well with! Truly remarkable.

    Funny coincidence that you watched Blade Runner 2045. My husband recently re-watched the original. I think he’s seen it a half dozen times.

    It’s cold and rainy here, too. I plan to spend the day indoors, catching up on various projects since we were away for over a week (visiting family in Nashville/Franklin, TN). If I get super motivated, I hope on the indoor bike. Nothing like a vacation to make the jeans feel just a bit too snug. 😉

      It was/is bittersweet, but I’m trying to keep myself reading at a similar pace, maybe just with longer books 🙂
      Jason and I couldn’t remember anything about the original even thought we’d seen in years ago, lol. Luckily, we didn’t really need to with the new one. Loved seeing Harrison Ford!
