|UNLIKE THIS READATHON *cries in a corner*|
I actually did weirdly better in this readathon than I have in most others. I'm over halfway done with Boy, Snow, Bird, halfway through Medieval Women, and I read a chapter of 2 Kings, meaning I have two left and then BAM! 1 Chronicles ahoy.
I also ate Chipotle, grilled cheese, mini muffins, hummus, carrots, and copious amounts of Mr Pibb. Oh, and one of the mini pies my girlfriend baked because she is awesome.
|it was her first time making pie|
So much eaten! A relatively okay amount read! Boy, Snow, Bird is starting to get weird and I was somehow not expecting that. WHAT'S YOUR GAME, OYEYEMI.
Medieval Women is fantastic. It's this book of essays published in 1975 and based on lectures by Eileen Power, who had died by then. Our culture's ideas about women are at least partially based on ideas formulated during the medieval period! We cannot understand our present without looking to our past! History is important! Etc!
I love the minithon. I wish we could do it more often, but frankly, we're all too lazy. Which is in the spirit of the minithon, so. Win-win. I guess.
OUR LEADER TIKA IS SO LOVELY FOR HOSTING THIS EVERY TIME. One of the best elements of the minithon, aside from constant snacks, is the blog-visiting and discussion. I love you all and WELCOME, NEW PEOPLE. May our minithon spread to all who need it.
