The Classics Club Readathon Begins....
What better way to start off a new year? Today I'm participating in The Classics Club's first ever Reathathon. My goals for today are simple: to read as much classic literature as possible!
Where am I reading? I started out at the local gym....I don't read while I'm working out, but my husband's workout takes about twice as long as mine does, so I always read while I wait for him. We got to the gym at 8:30 this morning, and left after 11:00....Now I'm cozily curled up on my bed with my book.
Snacks and Beverages? Right now I have a cup of coffee. Since I worked out for almost an hour this morning, I don't think I want to completely negate the effects of the workout with snacks, but we do have the enormous over-priced box of popcorn we bought from the local Boy Scout troop, if I really have to snack. Also, there are grits.
Since the classics are meant to be savored, I don't have any ambitions of racing through a lot of pages today.
What am I reading? I'm reading The Border Trilogy by Cormac McCarthy: I have the Everyman's Library edition with all three books in one volume. I just started All the Pretty Horses this morning.
Thanks to the folks at The Classics Club for hosting this readathon!
