Progress isnt always easy to show

Soon after my last post I realized I needed to buy some dress shoes for tomorrow. Upon ensuring that I had an audiobook I could listen to I struck out for Macy’s. While waking I listened to Catch 22 and while waiting for and riding on the subway I read 1984 on my iPhone. Amazon’s Kindle app is by far one of my favorites. I also have the new Barnes and Noble eReader app, but have yet to use it.

Since returning from my shoe errand I finished The Fellowship of the Ring and have delved deeper into 1984.

While I love days like this, a part of me (the inner narcisist perhaps) wishes I could show more. To say I read 10 books in one day would be awesome, but then I’d have to choose different books. Oh well. I may not be able to demonstrate progress with numbers, but that’s really not what matters anyway.

Books, Reading


  1. softdrink Way to multitask!!
  2. Linda Good job!
  3. Somer You’re doing great, even if you don’t have a lot to show for it! Hope you’re having fun!
  4. Louise Its the 11th hour of the Read-a-Thon. How are you holding up? I’m cheering for you. You can do it!!!
  5. Vasilly Happy reading!
  6. Laza It’s really easy to get caught up in the “can-i-read-more-than-you” thing. That’s how I was last go round. But it’s too stressful! I like the relaxed approach much better! Keep up the great reading!
  7. Nise' I bet the Catch-22 audio is great to listen to. Many you enjoy more reading hours.
  8. Valerie Well, you might have gotten more read than in an usual day, right? enjoy the rest of the readathon!
  9. Tracie Yule You could say that you read ten children’s books :) I read that everyday! The fellowship of the ring isn’t exactly quick reading, so great job!
  10. Kailana Wow, that is some amazing multi-tasking!

    Nise: the audio recording is very well done. Makes it easy to listen to.

    Valerie: yes, I have definitely read more than a normal day! way more.

    Thanks everyone!
