It's Read-A-Thon, Yo

And I so totally didn't start on time.  I was up super-late trying to get some last minute details organized (shame on me) for the schedule, so I had to sleep in a little.

My Read-A-Thon Goals:

ONE book.  I'd like to get ONE book read today.  And it needs to be The Luxe by Anna Godberson.  So remember that post I posted earlier this week with all of the fun books I was going to read during the 'thon?  Yeah, not gonna happen.  I've got to read The Luxe so that I can get through Rumors in time for book group next week!

I'll be stepping out for a little bit this afternoon to attend a bridal shower (oh yea.)  so I'll be taking Shiver by Maggie Steifvater on audiobook along with me, since that is book group selection for November!

Updates:
Hour 8:  I've listened to an hour of audiobooks: Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Slayer.
Hour 16:
Hour 24:

I'm sure I won't end up reading as much as I'd hoped to either: so long as you're having fun! Happy Read-A-Thon-ing!

Trisha said...

I hope you get your book read!

One, Two, Three, Four
Get one done and read some more
Five, Six, Seven, Eight
Reading so much, can't see straight
Nine, Ten, Eleven, Twelve
Pick another up off the shelf!
Happy Reading!

Give me a R! Give me an E! Give me an A! Give me a D!
What's that spell? Read! Read!
Books are the best
We'll not eat
We'll not rest!

Yeah, well eating and sleeping may be required for mortals, but you know what I mean :D
Keep up the great work!

So I picked up a book on my own from the shelf and I started to read on my own to myself. And nonsense and knowledge come tumbling out, whispering mysteries, history’s shout, the wisdom of wizards, the songs of the ages, all the wonders of wandering wonderful pages. ~Karla Kuskin

I've traveled the world twice over,
Met the famous; saints and sinners,
Poets and artists, kings and queens,
Old stars and hopeful beginners,
I've been where no-one's been before,
Learned secrets from writers and cooks
All with one library ticket
To the wonderful world of books.

I hope you're enjoying your reading, wherever it's taking you!!

Kinda cool I attended a baby shower today myself. So only have one book read so far. I also listened to Abe L. Vamp Hunter for the last read a thon and loved it! I think your doing great! :D

Florinda said...

I'm not so good at clever cheers - just keep on reading, and we'll be here (to keep you motivated - yeah!)

Looks like you're doing great - and we're past the halfway point now :-). Thanks for keeping things going over at the Readathon blog!

Happy Readathon!

Is that Rampant? :) I kept saying "ram" and "pants" until it made sense.

Good luck with your reading!

Don't let the late hour
Make you dour:
Just get up and stretch,
You'll feel the best!
