24 Hour Read-A-Thon: Update Hours 9 & 10

24read_lighter-300x300How I am feeling at this point in the Event:

Getting my mojo back after participating in the Yoga challenge (see below) followed by a short walk around the neighborhood with my hubby and Raven. And I feel EXHILARATED at finishing my first book of the day! Yay!

What I am currently reading:

Getting ready to start A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Maara in the next hour.

What I have finished reading:

RoundHouseThe Round House by Louise Erdrich which is spectacularly good. I will try to get a review up on this book sometime in the next couple of days. In the meantime, if you haven’t read this one yet, I highly recommend it!

What I have eaten during these hours:

Nothing – I guess I better take a snack break soon!

Mini Challenge(s) completed during this update period:

The Yoga Challenge:

I spent about 10 minutes on this challenge and did The Mountain Pose, Standing Forward Bend, Cat Pose, Cow Pose, Downward Facing Dog and Child’s Pose. The hardest of these were the forward bend and the downward facing dog because I have very tight hamstrings!! But I loved the Cat/Cow pose and the Child’s Pose – very relaxing and nice to get those deep breaths in and out. And then I used my new found energy to walk a little!
