Good Morning- Dewey’s Reverse Readathon 2020

Since, my mental health upkeep requires a decent sleep schedule – I went to bed really early last night instead of just staying up. Everyone is who started last night will be almost 8 hours into the readathon. I’ll be starting shortly. I’m excited. Usually, I get about 8 hours in during the readathon – which is huge for me! This year I’m challenging myself to try for 10. By 4:30 readathon time I’ll be reading. So, it should technically be possible. We’ll see what happens.

This morning I’ll be starting with a few short stories from Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried. It’s the R/bookclub pick this month over on Reddit. It’s a book of short stories from the Vietnam War. I almost sat this one out since I don’t read much about that time period. I decided to give it a chance since I joined the club to read books I wouldn’t normally select for myself. We’re 2 stories in with another 2 up for discussion today. I really enjoyed the first two so far. They’re insightful and the man has a beautiful writing voice.
