I didn’t expect to be up that early today, but I kept waking up after 5am, so I started early with the readathon at 7:30 – I’ve read a few more chapters of I’ve Got Your Number by Sophia Kinsella so far. It’s pretty funny, there was a scene that had me laughing out loud last night.
Anyway, this is going to be my official Readathon post which will get updated throughout the day. I expect to read a good chunk in the morning, but I have shopping plans with the sister and then work to do this weekend so I don’t expect to be reading all day. I feel pretty relaxed about this readathon – I have no real goals for it! 🙂
484 pgs read
9:00 am – I’ve read approx 80 pages in the last hour from I’ve Got Your Number by Sophia Kinsella. I’m starting Chapter 11 – people are running around and things are getting nailbiting!
11:00 am – Finished with I’ve Got Your Number. That was a good book, happy sigh ending. Peering around for food now – I had some oatmeal for breakfast but I’m feeling peckish. 174 pages added to the count for a total of 254.
1:30 pm – I took a bit of a break to eat half a pomelo and watch an episode of Friends. I just started Unearthly – about 37 pages in, but I don’t want to read the whole book today – I’d rather pace it so I can discuss with my readalong buddies. Total pages read = 291. The Husband is bringing me lunch from Panera soon and I will be going out with the sis after that.
6:30 pm – I’m back! I had lunch then went with my sister to Macy’s where she returned 5 pairs of shoes from 2 years ago and nearly killed me with her chuztpah. Then it was to Target where she looked at some earrings/necklace on clearance and nearly killed me with her indecisiveness (I made her buy the earrings). On the way home I had some nice tart frozen yogurt – quite refreshing in this hot day. Back to reading now, on page 70 of Unearthly. Total pages read = 324.
9:30 pm – I read up to page 156 of Unearthly. I’m stopping there for today with that book, so I can pace it out for the readalong. Moving on to another one soon. I TRIED to join in the Name that Book minichallenge but um.. yes, I fail – all the books I’ve guessed have already been guessed. Total pages read = 410.
11:30 pm – Read 22 pages of Attachments by Rainbow Rowell, but was getting very sleepy so I switched to my graphic novel, which was The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec and read 52 pages of that (and finished it off) – that one is the basis of this French movie I’m interested in seeing one day. Total pages read = 484
midnight – I think I’m done! I have to wake up in 5 and a half hours, so it’s off to bed for me. 🙂
Are you participating in the readathon? If so, how is it going for you so far? If not, how’s your weekend so far?
Glad you are feeling relaxed! Hope you get in quite a bit of reading today!
Thanks for dropping by to cheer me along! 🙂
Here to cheer! Yay for finishing a book! You’re doing great!
Heh, thank you. I just took a bit of a break after the book, but eying the TBR for another one now.
I’ve Got Your Number is on my list for later today! So glad to hear you liked it 🙂 Keep up the great reading!
It’s popular, it’s Heidi’s book too (Heidi from Bunbury in the Stacks). 🙂
You’re doing great — even with some family time built in! Happy Reading!
I like Sophie Kinsella too, haven’t read that one yet, but several of her other stand alones, she is very funny! The story about your sister returning the shoes is great, I love it! I wouldn’t have had the nerve to try that, but go her if it worked!
Hope you’re having a wonderful day, and enjoy the rest of the read-a-thon, you’re doing great!

Well my sister never takes ‘No’ for an answer, so. I’m kind of proud of it, but also sometimes scared, ha.
Thanks for stopping by to cheer. 🙂
You liked I’ve Got Your Number too! I should probably pick up that book since so many of you blog friends enjoyed it. I’m not a big fan of Sophie Kinsella though.
I’m sorry I wasn’t able to pace Unearthly. I didn’t mean to finish it last night but I couldn’t sleep so I just kept on reading. I posted a few comments on Goodreads but I didn’t mention spoilery bits, I’m going to wait for you guys to finish before I do that. What do you think of it so far?
Kinsella can be hit or miss with me. Shopaholic was a miss, and so was Remember Me? I think. Those were just “OK”. I liked this one more.
😛 I see.. Well the book is very easy to read fast. I noticed that when I was reading it and had to make myself stop around 150 pages. So far I like the writing, I haven’t really decided about the story so far. It’s an interesting take – the heroine knowing what she is etc, but depends on where this goes.
