Read-a-Thon Update Three

It's 11:10 pm and I've just finished The Boy With the Cuckoo-Clock Heart.  It's one that I'm going to have to think about for a bit before I decide what I think.  It definitely has an air of having been written by a lyricist and musician (which Malzieu is).  It was strange as well that my last two books were translated works -- Spanish and French.

The gas fire has been lit again (it's still raining) and I'm going to read a graphic novel next - Bone: Volume 1: Out From Boneville by Jeff Smith.  I've been curious about this series for a while since the kids at the elementary school seem to love it.  Z is in bed but the husband is on the other end of the couch reading with me now.  It's rather peaceful.

Minus meals and nap, I think I've read for maybe 11 hours so far today.  Three books and 601 pages down and I'm planning on pushing through for as long as I can.  I'm saving a gem for my next read in an attempt to make the last few hours fly by!

Back to the books,

  1. I'm reading a sort of graphic novel. Dragon Ball. Short is better than long at this hour.

    Hang in there. I can see the finish line.
