So I’m trying really hard not to compare my first day of the Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon to last year, but I’m not succeeding! I currently have 4 kids under the age of 4 here so it’s silly to think I’ll be reading entire books every day… Yet my competitive nature still produces an inner voice that says I must constantly be improving and doing better than before. So I’m really struggling to just be happy with what I can do right now.
Because the idea that I should be anywhere near the page count I was at last year is a ridiculous lie.
The truth is, every page I get to read is a victory! So without further ado, the following is my Day 1 Update:
Beautiful Revolutionary by Laura Elizabeth Woollett
Pages Read: 28
The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
I hadn’t actually planned on reading The Wizard of Oz during the read-a-thon, but the kids found the copy My husband got me from The Folio Society for my birthday and they were obsessed with the pictures so I decided might as well read it to them! We got through 14 pages together.
Day 1 Totals:
Books Read: 2
Pages Read: 42
Total Books Read: 2
Total Pages Read: 42
