it’s monday! what are you reading?

It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme began by Sheila at Book Journey.

The finish line is in sight, people! And by that I mean the end of the school year. FINALLY. This was a rough semester and I’m more than ready for a slow-down. I still work year-round, but summers are infinitely more chill than the academic year, naturally. Plus, I have a few trips to Wisconsin to look forward to!

deweysSaturday was Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon, and since for the first time ever I didn’t have a concert in the evening (and dress rehearsal during the day), I was thrilled to join in the fun. However! My husband had a concert that night I attended… and we had to go to the farmers market for groceries in the morning (and I know for a fact I would never stay awake through 24 full hours), my participation was limited.

Veteran readathon-ers recommend against long, heavy non-fiction, but I have barely been able to put down Columbine by Dave Cullen, so I pretty much just read that the whole day (and into Sunday a bit, since I missed some reading time on Saturday). I ended up reading just over 200 pages over the weekend, which is a real feat considering how ridiculously busy the last few weeks have been. Bonus—Columbine is off my TBR Pile Challenge list! Hopefully I can join the next readathon and will be better prepared to have a plan, snacks, and track my time and pages.

This week I’m planning on review posts for Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum which I finished last week, Columbine, and my April reading recap.

What are you reading this week?
