Readathon - Hour 8 & 9 update

I finished my first book!  The ending was not what I expected. In fact I'm thinking that the author allowed for a sequel to the book easily. I'll post a more through review later this weekend. 

This book was also my 50th book this year.  I only have two more books to go before the end of the month to complete the Cannonball Read II challenge (52 books in one year - a book a week).

I've been cheering on fellow readers as well and posted my own version of a cheer for on Jill's Shake Your Pom Poms mini challenge. 

Alas the real world is now going to intervene and I need to stop reading & cheering so that we can go to a dinner party.  On the flip side the sweet potatoes my fiancee made for the dinner party smell yummy!

I'll be back later on this evening, probably around hour 14 or 15. Until then - Happy Reading!


  1. We will see you when you get back -

    Books pile up
    Take one from the top
    Take another, Flip right thru
    Find the one that just suits you Read read read, don’t stop!

  2. Enjoy your break!

    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.

  5. Sometimes I think heaven must be one continuous unexhausted reading

    Or, at least, one 24-hour-long exhausted reading! Keep it up!
