October Read-a-thon Survey 2019

My Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon survey:

What fine part of the world are you reading from today?

I am reading from my home in Forest Grove, Oregon (a college town 30 miles west of Portland.)

Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?

The book I’m looking most forward to reading today is Beatrix Potter’s Gardening Life, by Marta McDowell.

Which snack are you most looking forward to?

I’m committed to staying on my Weight Watchers program today so I’ve planned healthy snacks…carrots and snap peas for crunch, apples, bananas, and oranges for sweetness, and a packet of chips for a salty snack.  A good breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And then, of course, coffee for keeping me awake and going throughout the day! Wish me luck!

Tell us a little something about yourself!

Reading is my delight! I’ve always been a reader in a family of readers. I also love to garden, thus my reading theme for today. I’m a mom to two wonderful grown-ups, and a grandma to one handsome, tall, intelligent boy. I’m a retired school teacher enjoying each and every day of my retirement. I am a dedicated volunteer with Moms Demand Action, and my focus is on helping to educate my community about the new Red Flag Law here in Oregon. And I’m a walker (my knees do not like to have me running!) with long legs and a fast pace, who enjoys participating in 5k races.

If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?

I did participate in the last read-a-thon, and this time I am going to get up and move around more! I have an audiobook that I will listen to throughout the day on my short walks. I think I’ll be able to last longer, read longer, if I exercise a little more throughout the day!

Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you enjoy your reading today as much as I’m enjoying mine!
