Happy Sunday, fellow Saloners, from the perpetually absentee blogger. I’ve been a bad blogger recently, but I have been trying to refocus on reading and figuring out how I want to move forward with the blog.

I participated in the 24 hour read-a-thon yesterday. I got a late start, then took a couple hours off for the brunch my parents were hosting to celebrate my brother’s wedding Friday night. But I did get the chance to participate, and I finished three books: Baggage Claim by Tanya Michna, Five Minutes More by Darlene Ryan, and Viola in Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani. All three were very good, though I can’t really say that Five Minutes More was enjoyable, given the theme of suicide and its aftermath for the survivors.

Overall, I read 916 pages over 520 minutes, which is a pretty good clip. If I’d been able to focus more throughout the day, I would have been very pleased. As it is, I am pleased with what I managed to read.

Today, I’m hoping to finish Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict, and if I have a chance, get back to The Woman in White. Hope those of you who participated in the read-a-thon got plenty of sleep, and I hope you all enjoy what’s left of your Sunday!
