Final Read-a-thon Update


I've had a blast as I hope everyone else did. I read exactly 900 pages.

Wow, I could've finished Les Mis.

Completed during 22 hours that I read:

Was This Man a Genius? Julie Hecht

Requiem, Mass. John Dufresne

Partially read during the readathon:

When You are Engulfed in Flames. David Sedaris

My Sister's Hand in Mine: The Collected Works of Jane Bowles. Jane Bowles

The Horse-Stealers and Other Stories. Anton Chekhov

Everything That Rises Must Converge. Flannery O'Connor

Interpreter of Maladies. Jhumpa Lahiri

The Calling. Inger Ash Wolfe
