Olympic Read-a-Thon: Day 4 Update

Now that the weekend is over, it's back to a normal work week. Monday morning started very early when we left the house at 5:30 heading to the DFW airport. With hubby driving, I started reading Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman. This is a very short book, a very short novel—maybe even a novella. I read most of the way to the airport, though I did doze off a couple of times. After checking through security, I took advantage of the Wi-Fi network in the Admiral's Club to take care of e-mail. That means I didn't get back to reading until I had taken my seat on the plane. I quickly finished Odd and the Frost Giants and started reading The Cat, the Professor and the Poison by LeAnn Sweeney. Turns out that I didn't read for long, though, because I wound up sleeping most of the way.

I had actually forgotten about the Olympic Readathon, and didn't get registered until mid-afternoon. Even though I traveled early in the morning, the rest of Monday was a work day and afforded limited opportunity to read except during meals. I did listen to a couple of tracks of Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Levitt while I was driving from the airport to hotel and hotel to restaurant and return. This is the audiobook that I started listening to in mid-July, and I'm not likely to finish it before Labor Day since I only listen to audiobooks when I'm alone in the car.
