It's been a little quiet around here and, honestly, I've been in a little bit of a blogging slump. I think was just so tired at the end of the day, between work and school and being a mom, that blogging was definitely taking a backseat.
BUT, summer holidays is now here! Yay! And, to kick off the fun, I've decided to take on an epically chunky novel from my TBR list: George R.R. Martin's A Game of Thrones. I posted last week about feeling overwhelmed by my TBR lists and just by the sheer number of books that I want to read. With the little reading time that I do have available, I prefer a lighter read so that I can read more books. Tackling such a dauntingly hefty read was just too much for me to contemplate. Then, I saw that Debby @ Snuggly Oranges had the perfect plan for tackling just such a read: in only 26 pages per day, she managed to read through the entire book!
At work, we're working on a project that involves archiving an entire room full of stored drawings, which is a tedious and dusty job. The best part of this project is that I can listen to an audiobook while I'm working, which is the perfect way to make sure that I can make my quota each day! The man who narrates the book has this deep, rich British accent so I am LOVING the story so far -- even only three chapters in!
