Since last update:
Pages: 82 (The Outsiders and Catch Me If You Can)
Time: 75 minutes

170 pages read
160 minutes reading
34 minutes blogging
20 blogs visited
1 books finished (The Outsiders)
1 caffeine beverage
2 mini challenges (cover attraction @ Book Gazing)

For those of you who asked–I AM a morning person. Scott took the picture below and wanted to know why I didn’t use the whole couch. I don’t know. If you look closely, you can see Lexi under the table (and of course Maggie by my side).


Jodie asked us to pick a book from our stack and take a picture based on the back cover blurb. I chose Fun Home because it is nice and shiny. the back cover: “Bechdel charts her fraught relationship with her late father.” My father isn’t late and we get along great now, but things weren’t always so peachy. Here is a picture of the book and a picture within of me and my dad when I was little. We’re “reading” the comics. :)

How’s everyone doing??? Thanks for all the great comments–YOU GUYS ROCK!

  1. Hello Maggie! It is funny that you are only using a tiny portion of the couch, but whatever is comfy…:) I can’t believe how many pages you have already read!!

  2. I love that your Dad is wearing a tie and laying on the floor with you!! It just says – “I am taking time out to be with my daughter” :)

    I will have to make sure to get some pictures with my girls and their Dad like this.

    It’s also a great comparison to the book!

  3. Wow, you’re doing great! I haven’t read anything this hour. Yikes. Lucky you being a morning person-as is quite obvious-I’m not. lol.

    Love the pic of you and your dad. Cute about the furkids. Buddy is sprawled on the bed by me right now although I imagine not for long. I’ll get a pic of him at some point-none of me. Don’t want to scare anyone. lol.

    Keep it up Trish-you’re doing awesome.

  4. That’s great, and your cover of Fun Home is much nicer than mine, hee hee. You’re doing great with the pages, too!

  5. Cute photo of you and your dad. I love that he’s wearing a tie and suit, but still got down on the floor with you. You’re doing really well; a little more than a page a minute.

  6. I read Fun Home recently, and loved it! I hope that you manage to squeeze it in sometime today, and enjoy it as much as I did. Good luck with the readathon!

  7. I love the picture! I’ll have to post one of me sometime today- hopefully AFTER I shower and comb my hair and get dressed and not before!

  8. I want to read “Fun Home” someday. I tried to suggest it for a book club, but that didn’t fly, so I’ll have to do it on my own.

    Tying your photo in was a great idea for the challenge, and it is a sweet picture even on its own.

    Enjoy your reading today!


  9. Haha, great creativity!

    I am not exactly a morning person, but I do have a tendency to wake up early no matter what. Doesn’t mean I’m really awake, though.

    Wow, you have been busy!

  10. Wow! That picture of you and your dad is crazy!!! It has been what 15 years since I have even seen him!!! Blast from the past. I love your face in the pic too! Glad you are keeping up to goal in your reading!!! Nicely done!
