Dewey Readathon April 2015

So, I am starting a few hours late, but let’s see what we can do!  My alarm clock never went off!  And of course I am behind at work so I am going to have so many distractions today, but hopefully I can get some reading in.  And off I go.  This post is where my updates will be!

UPDATE: So 5 and a half hours in and I am at about 30 pages into my book.  Life has a funny way of throwing us some curve balls.  I have missed out on some of the hourly challenges but I plan on paying more attention the rest of the day.

Oh, Wow! It’s #Readathon Season

So, totally forgot that it was getting to be readathon time again.  Dewey’s starts in the morning!!!  Who else will be participating?  I am looking forward to trying to get some reading in.  Of course, we just moved, and I have a house full of kids, and I am under the gun at work, so who knows what I will really be able to accomplish, but I will give it a go nonetheless.  If I can finish one book, I will be pleased enough with myself.  Going to start with book 7 of Artemis Fowl, the Atlantis Complex, and see if I can get it knocked out since it has been on my TBR for far too long!

Survey Time, Readers. I Need Your Comments

So, the other day I announced that I would be starting a few new features on the blog.  One is going to be called “The Life and Times of an Autism Mom.”  The other is going to be reviews of non-book items.  Namely, well, products and stuff like that.

What I am wondering is does anyone have any suggestions on types of products they would like to see reviewed?  I don’t want to just throw random stuff at you and send you screaming for the hills.

So, Thinking about some new things

So, I know it has been very quiet around here and I need to work on that.  I have a bunch of reviews drafted that I need to just finish up and get them posted.  I am still reading and reviewing.  I just have been super busy in real life and balance has never been one of my strong suits.

I have a few things coming up that I am kind of excited about.  While this blog will primarily be about the books and such, I do want to broaden my horizons a bit, so I am starting to do product reviews as well.
