Sizzling Summer Readathon: Second Update
August 7, 2011 5 Comments
Once Upon a Chapter organises the OUAC Sizzling Summer Readathon from August 5-7th. Very laidback, just read as much as you can between 12:00 AM Friday August 5th until 11:59 PM Sunday August 7th.
These books are on my list for the read-a-thon
On Saturday, I spend a lot of time reading, but I also went cycling for a few hours, as the weather was so nice. I read for a total of 5.5 hours, when I added it all up. I had expected it would be more, and I can’t say what else I did with my time… not much (maybe I spent too much time on the computer – when you sit down at the computer for 10 minute sessions it easily becomes close to an hour at a time!).
I read the rest of The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson (95-384 =289 pages). At the beginning of the day, I hoped to finish this book, and so I did! I only had a little bit of time left to start This Beautiful Life by Helen Schulman, so I read 19 pages of that book, making a total of 307 pages for Saturday.
My plans for today
This Beautiful Life only has 225 pages so hopefully I’ll be able to read most of it. Who knows? Maybe I’ll read all of it and even have time for the weekend newspaper (I haven’t opened it yet, so I can concentrate on the readathon).
How about a read-a-thon for you?
