I had a great week of reading thanks to Dewey’s 24-hour Readathon. Check out my readathon wrap-up. I always have such a good time! This is the second time in a row that I stayed up for the full 24 hours. I am happy with the results. I completed 5 books and read 1,200 pages. I’ve been needing to jump start my reading life again, and this definitely helped.

I’ve had some trouble getting some good reading time in these last few weeks. Work has been crazy exhausting for months, so I’m dealing with burnout during a high anxiety period of time, but at least my friend and I have officially finished Anna Karenina. We’ve been reading and discussing that book for the entire year. I’m currently utilizing book clubs to jump start my reading again.

I’ve been reading a lot of books about racism and injustices, and while White Fragility is an okay book, I find that other books have been much more powerful. So far I would highly recommend anything by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson and So You Want To Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo. I decided to balance my reading by listening to some Nancy Drew on audio. I was pleasantly surprised that Laura Linney narrates those novels. Also, I finally finished The Dilemma. I should have a review of that posted soon.

I took a small amount of time off of work during the holiday weekend. I thought I would get more reading done, but, alas, I can’t seem to sit down and read books right now. I am listening to audiobooks, while I do housework, etc., but that is the only reading that is happening in my life right now. In the last week, countless friends and family members have tested positive for COVID, and it is making me more than a little anxious. I am much more anxious now than I was three months ago. I am not even able to find peace in my books, but most of the audiobooks that I listened to in the last couple of weeks were amazing!

I put together my Summer Reading List and hope to read a few more classics once I have completed my Anna Karenina buddy read. I need to start making more progress on my Reading the Classics list. Since I don’t have any summer travel plans (anymore – all canceled), I am thinking of having a few reading staycations – at least that is my hope. Anybody ever do that?
