I could stop reading new books until I get caught up. But that's not going to happen. I mean, not only am I way behind on many challenges, but I also have the will power of a flea. Additionally, reading things is my security blanket, so if I have nothing new to distract me, the normal stresses of life will send me quivering under my bed, unable to reassure myself with the thought that Jane Eyre had it worse.
So instead, I have stumbled across the Dewey 24 Hour Readathon, a twice-yearly event held by some fabulous bloggers. I can devote all of Saturday to reading, and do it with a pack of other bibliophiles so it looks like a community-spirit, social event! And my kids are supportive and have promised to bring me nice things to eat during it.
