Mid-readathon check-in

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

dewey day and night

1. What are you reading right now? Listening to The Magician’s Nephew and reading Saga Vol 1
2. How many books have you read so far? 1 full book finished, one partial book completed
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon? Nimona still!
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those? Not really, since I listen to audiobooks when I can’t read
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far? Nothing really, pretty standard (awesome) readathon day here!

Haven’t been following social media too terribly much, not sure why? but am enjoying the reading and general quiet of the day.

Opening meme: April 2016 Readathon

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016


I’m late to the party because I’ve been listening to an audiobook all morning and only just came to the computer for the first time today, but here we go catching up on mini-challenges and such.

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? Portland, Maine
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I can never answer this! Maybe Nimona?
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? I made fresh pico last night and that smelled divine when I opened the fridge just now, so that’s top of the list
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I just found out this week that I’ve been selected to receive a scholarship from a local LGBT business association: I’m going back to school in the Fall!
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? Today I will… not blog until hour 6? That wasn’t on purpose, though…

Almost through my first book, The Horse and His Boy on audio. After that, I think I’ll probably finish The Dream Thieves. Happy reading, all!
