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. 🙂
