Good Morning Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon/I started early

Good morning!

I slept rough last night. I’m about 7.5 days into quitting smoking and it’s effecting every area of my life. I’m running a little late with this blog because I didn’t know my desktop computer would choose this morning to spazz out over an update that didn’t install correctly. It’s fine now, but now I’m running around trying to make up for the lost half an hour when I thought I had plenty of time this morning!

I thought I had so much time in face that I read when I woke up. Yeah, I’m trying to make that a habit and a part of my new ‘non-smoker’ morning routine. I’m trying for 10 hours this round. Since I only read 35 minutes this morning before the official start – I’m counting it. It’s not much, but it’s enough to make me feel like maybe I’ll reach my goal!

I read number 4 & 5 of the new little Amazon ‘series’ of short stories. I loved the 4th and the 3rd was just okay. I usually love Emma Donoghue, but this little dystopian number about population growth and illegal babies just made me shake my head. I might’ve enjoyed it more if I read it not first thing in the morning. I’m ChildFree by choice, but I write books about men having babies. I have no problem with other people having babies and the story was just…. I don’t words it’s too early in the morning and I want to grab a bite to eat before the official start of the readathon. Overall, I’d recommend both of the stories – even if the latter is just to share my headache/confusion/thinking too hard early in the morning 😛

This was the one that made my head hurt.
