Sunday Salon- Finishing up the Read-a-thon

After a pretty average week, I was glad to settle into the 24-Hour Read-a-Thon yesterday; my goal was to read at least two stories or essays from a stack of anthologies, with the secondary goal of weeding out a few. It struck me that I had a lot of them sitting around that I had never even touched, and that dipping into a few might not be a bad idea.

So if you came by to visit yesterday, you know that my day was interrupted by another visit to the hospital thanks to my cat; when I got home I decided to throw in the towel and just watch TV. Today I think will be a slow day and so I'm going to work on reading a few things from some of the books I didn't get to, and work on finishing up Solar, Ian McEwan's absolutely compulsively-readable novel.

My cat is making his own visit to the (kitty) hospital tomorrow, to get a melanoma and some skin anomalies removed; he should be fine by the end of the day.

Tell me how something so cute can be the source of such unhappiness?

Congrats on finishing the Read-a-Thon. I talked about my first time joining on Sunday Salon: Read-a-thon Wrap-Up

Oh no, poor kitty. And poor Bibliophile. I had a kitty once who had to have an ear-ectomy because of skin cancer.

I'm sending psychic support.

wait...did you and the cat both have medical issues? I did not take part in the read-a-thon. I want out to lunch with my bro and and family (Great half sour pickles..great onion rings...)

then went to an open house in a very rich town at the shore. a rather small, 1.7 million dollar house, beack block house.

no, none of us have 1.7 million...but I think the Realtor though we might. fun...

Followed your tweets yesterday, and don't blame you for throwing in the towel. Take care of the injuries from the possessed cat. :) I had one like that once - the most beautiful cat I have ever seen but just not nice no matter what we did for him. Hope kitty does well today though. Happy reading!

Bad cute kitty!

Well done and don't worry about all the interruptions -- it happens. We had guests and other distractions but it was still fun! I think on a 'normal' Saturday I could end up reading more, though!
