Day #2 Update – 2019 Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon

I managed to read a little bit more yesterday than in Day 1 of the 2019 Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon hosted by Tess at Wishful Endings. Here are my stats at the end of Day 2:

Books Read:

Beautiful Revolutionary by Laura Elizabeth Woollett

This was the only book I read yesterday (other than some very short children’s books). I don’t actually know much about Jim Jones and his cult, but so far this story is amazing in a creepy sorta way.

Day #1 Update – 2019 Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon

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:

Books Read:

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.
