Happy Read-a-thon Day!
I started an hour early, since I was awake and was eager to finish Her Fearful Symmetry, which I had been unable to resist starting late yesterday afternoon (I came home from work early). I've now read the final 73 pages and am trying to decide what I want to read next.
I'm going to update this post throughout the day instead of having several different posts on my progress.
A first hour meme:
Where are you reading from today? My reading chair in Charlotte, NC, with expectations that some of the reading will take place with me on the treadmill.
3 facts about me …
Today's my birthday.
Pages Turned is five years old today.
I stayed up too late reading last night and will no doubt suffer for it now that the read-a-thon has officially started.
How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours? I couldn't wait, so I've already read two of them--Lynn Freed's The Servants' Quarters and Audrey Niffenegger's Her Fearful Symmetry. I think that leaves five from the official stack, but there are literally hundreds more in the house to chose from if those don't feel quite right.
Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)? Nary a one.
If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time? Have fun!
Just finished A.L. Barker's The Haunt. A strange little book with an odd assortment of characters.
I think I shall turn my attention to Dave Eggers' Zeitoun for awhile.
Just dropping in to say I am loving Dave Eggers' Zeitoun. I've finished parts I and II and am now taking a break to look at a friend's wedding registry.
Finished Zeitoun. It was fantastic. Trying to decide what I'm in the mood for now.
