Whew, fast and furious! It looks like I have enough work stashed away to cover my bills for the fall semester, so that's a relief in itself. I told one of my students the other day that I'll still be teaching for the college, just online--from Texas in my pajamas. He thought for a moment and said, "Miss Miller, I'm pretty sure that's the American dream."
I do believe he's right.
In other news, Dewey's Read-a-Thon starts tomorrow at 9:00am pacific (noon eastern)! 24 hours of pure reading time. Since I'm leaving town next Wednesday, I have some packing to do this weekend, but I hope I can get a big chunk done in the morning so I will have plenty of time to lounge with a book during the 24 hours. Expect reasonably constant updates on the state of things.
I wish I could say I've planned out lots of great reading choices, but I feel certain it'll be one of those situations where I wander up to my shelves, pluck whatever looks good and is short, and dive in. I've been eyeing my children's and YA shelves mostly, with a few sideways glances at graphic novels and novellas.
Wish me luck!
I'm off to finish packing my office and go through these towering stacks of paper!
