Summer Wrap-up Read-a-thon Day 1

 Monday, 6 August 2012

The Summer Wrap Up Read-A-Thon is hosted by Jennifer at Some Like It Paranormal and Jude at In Between.

Well since I did actually sign up to do this read-a-thon I had better get a post up for it! Only really starting today since I was away all weekend and only got home earlier this morning.

What I'm Reading: Just finished Slated by Teri Terry.
Already Read: Frostfire by Zoe Marriott
Number of Pages read today: 485
Total Pages Read: 485
Total Books Read: 2
Non-reading Activity: Got some tedious errands to run shortly so I'm going to have to take a break from trying to read. Will also acquire some noms before my stomach starts roaring at me. 
Thoughts on Read-a-thon thus far: It's been a long time since I did any kind of serisous reading stint so I don't quite know how I'm going to do. I don't think I'll be able to quite manage a book a day since I'm going to get pressganged into doing productive things on numerous occasions methinks. It's sort of a cheat that I've already finished one book since I read the majority of it on the train journey to and from London on Saturday when my boyfriend and I went with the intent to maybe see some of the Olympics. We ended up eating at Pieminister for lunch and Paul Rhodes for dessert and then staggering through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park (getting ripped off for merely sitting on some deckchairs for a break along the way) before tripping into Foyles *heheBOOKS* and then back on the train home. Very little olympics seen but an awesome day nevertheless.

Update 9:30pm
Holy Shit I've just finished Slated and *flails* My God that is one *hell* of a book! You would have had to have been there to understand the noise that I made when I reached the last page and realised there wasn't anymore to read. Outraged indignation is probably the only description I can give it. I'm now going to have to sit glaze-eyed marvelling over this fantastic and slightly terrifying book and also bemoaning how long it will be until the sequel comes out. Teri Terry I salute your awesomeness *doffs hat*

Leave me to wallow into my mug of tea.... *sniffs*

Yours Busily

Hehe amazingly I only actually bought one book! I didn't want to weigh myself down with oodles of books although believe me I could have! Plus the boyf was flagging a bit so I didn't want to leave him sitting around for an hour :P
Hopefully I want to get another Books read and acquired up later although filming a vlog may be tricky with rentals in the house :S

Just read as much as you can no need to weigh yourself down. Have fun! Frostfire sounds interesting. Happy reading and thanks for joining us!

ONE BOOK? *starts to make list of things to teach Little Grasshopper during her next Book Fiend lesson* I might just have to hunt down Slated if it's that awesome! Also, Teri Terry? *chortles* Cool. :)
