It's that time of year, you know the time where people all over the world take a day off just to read. What avid reader doesn't want to pencil in READING on their to do calendar? I sure as heck do! This is the time I feel no remorse for letting the family fend for themselves... your hungry... make a sandwich, pop a hot pocket in the microwave, figure it out. YES, this is one of MY days, I will get so engross in my books that it's alright if I here "mom, mom, mom, momma, mom, mom" and I don't respond. There will be no guilt here, because I pencil this in way in advance. I let it be known to family and friends that I will not respond to phone calls, texts, or even visitors. Don't come over basically, because I 'll just shove a book in your face and say "Read, or get out". Ahhh, it is that time of year.
If you are in need of a day just for you, perhaps Dewey's Read-A-Thon is what you need.
Sign up here. Go ahead slack off for a day. You know you want to ;)
