Bout of Books Readathon Update Post!

October 24, 2011 readathon 4

I haven’t participated in any readathons in a while, so I thought I’d sign up for this one being hosted by On a Book Bender! I’m getting behind on some of my review books, like a lot of people it seems, so I’m using this opportunity to motivate me into reading them. I’ll be participating every day, and here’s the list of books I hope to get through. I’ll cross these off as I finish them:

  • Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
  • Destined by Jessie Harrell
  • Don’t Breathe a Word by Holly Cupala
  • Catherine the Great by Robert K. Massie
  • Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick
  • Sundered by Shannon Mayer
  • Touch by Jus Accardo
  • To the Cliffside by B. Jane Lawson

It kind of sucks right now because I can’t do any reading on my lunch hour at all for the next few weeks, and that’s usually when I get the bulk of my reading done. All my updates will be around 7:30pm Pacific time, so hopefully between tonight and all day  tomorrow I can get more done! How’s everyone else doing so far?

Finished Hallowed by Cynthia Hand today, and LOVED it! Even more than Unearthly. Review to come soon. I’m happy with today’s progress. Hopefully tomorrow’s is just as good!

Two books finished! I have tomorrow off so I’m hoping to get at least two books read tomorrow. That would be awesome.

Didn’t do any reading at all yesterday, and very little today. I think I may be running out of steam.

10/29

Pages today: 241
Pages total: 962
Books read: 3

Got more reading done than the last two days combined. My missing steam is picking up in the last two days, which is nice. Finished my third book today, and hoping for one more before the end!

10/30

The last day, so I’ll be doing a separate final update post!

Good luck to everyone participating, hopefully we all meet our goals! This will probably be a somewhat busy week for me, so I don’t know how many books I’ll read, but I’ll try to get to as many as I can. Have fun reading everyone!

    Wow, i’m so impressed by how quickly you read. I’m a slow reader, it takes me weeks to get through a book. This is a great blog. I’m following.

    You are doing an impressive job! I can understand running out of steam. That’s where I’m at for the most part today. I’ve read a little bit, started an audiobook, completed 1 challenge and am commenting on some blogs. So, while I’ve been active with the read-a-thon today, I haven’t read that much. “Oh well” is what I say.

    I hope that you have had some fun this week and had a chance to meet some new bloggers/readers – that is one of the main reasons I like to join! 🙂
