I was so proud of myself – for TWO WEEKS, I was right on schedule with my reading! I was able to follow along on the Infinte Summer website, peruse the forums, I was doing JUST FINE. Until this week. I’m now 25 pages behind, and falling back quickly. I know we’re only into the second day of Bluesfest, but I blame Bluesfest. This 25 page gap wouldn’t be so bad if I could spend some time on the weekend catching up, but that’s SO not going to happen. What’s going to happen is Bluesfest (BOOZEFEST), and that’s about it. My life is music for the next 11 days.
I am, of course, carrying the book with me everywhere, so any chance I get I’ll read what I can. But I’m a slow reader at the best of times, and a page or two at lunch, and a page or two on the way to Bluesfest and on the way home, and at best a couple of pages before passing out of exhaustion each night, is just not going to cut it.
I only hope that I’ll be able to get caught back up at the end of it! Even if I don’t, I’m not going to give up – I will finish this book this time through, on schedule or no. It’s just so much more fun to be able to follow along with everyone…
By the way, I am really enjoying the book. As befuddling as it can be sometimes, it’s always entertaining.
