A little last minute decision this morning, cleared the calendar and going to read all day and maybe night!  Thankfully I have plenty to read!

I am reading from my grandfather's chair in my home library!  I am starting the readathon by finishing The Care and Management of Lies by Jacqueline Winspear, but I am excited about my next book - The Unfinished Child by Theresa Shea.

I have some popcorn on the agenda, but since I am late to the game, I may have to rethink my dinner plans - pizza?

I participated in the readathon a long time ago and ever since have always had a packed weekend, so excited for a day devoted to reading!

I will be posting more updates and things on my instagram and twitter - @kdurham2.

Will post a final recap tomorrow morning.
