Update time…

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

Am just under a hundred pages into The Time Travelers; will return to it later, but need a break from the story and have seen so many Twitter updates about The Hunger Games that I’m going to give that a re-read. I’d pulled Battle Royale, which has a similar premise, as a possible book for the readathon, but I know it’ll take up several hours’ worth of reading at a fast clip. I’d rather hold off and give that one a luxurious read (if one can say that about a gruesome and psychopathic book).

Just got out of the shower; think it helped lift my lids a bit so I shouldn’t start flagging again for a while. Am trying to avoid coffee, but may have to indulge this afternoon. All it means is that once the caffeine starts really flowing, I have to keep it up, right? I can do that. :) Anyway, back to it – hope everyone is making great progress and having fun!

Brief readathon update!

OK, we’re entering the sixth hour, and I am feeling like a SLACKER! I’ve finished E. L. Konigsburg’s From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, started Stephen Lawton’s Hood but ditched it after four chapters because it just felt too historical-fiction-y for me (I have a desperately hard time keeping track of all those rulers and lands and alliances), and am beginning The Time Travelers by Linda Buckley-Archer. I also have The Time Thief if this proves to be a winner.

Would love to hear anyone else’s progress – drop a link to your own update post here, or come follow me on Twitter – http://twitter.com/aglaia531 – and I’ll follow ya back to keep up :) Happy reading, everyone, and thank you so much to the hosts and cheerleaders; you all are making this so much fun!

Trending on Twitter!

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

The readathon has been on the Twitter trending topics all morning from what I can see; so much fun! I think I’m spending more time refreshing my Echofon view than reading… Oops. At any rate, for this hour’s mini challenge, we’ve been asked to provide a Twitter screenshot of #readathon trending; here’s one from my iPhone app for my contribution.
