Read-a-Thon Update Two

Is it the half-way point of this read-a-thon already?  I guess it doesn't seem like it since I started late and yet it's still a bit hard to imagine that there are 12 hours left!  We went out for lunch and I grabbed this little fella on the way home.  Another comforting thing on a dreary day.

I just finished The Prince of Mist and will write up my full thoughts this week.  It was much more of a horror story than I anticipated.  It was very cinematic and quite scary!  Now I'm heading for a nap (I am still sick after all) and taking The Boy with The Cuckoo-Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu up with me.  It's a very small book so it should be a breeze to get through but I'll probably end up sleeping for a couple of hours first.

I'm up to 435 pages in about 8 hours of reading -- not too shabby.  I hope the rest of the participants are moving along at a good pace!

Back in a bit,


  1. Naps are good! I just finished with one. Reading is exhausting!

  2. You are doing f=great Kristen; keep up the good work!

  3. 1, 2, 3, 4
    Hope your book isn’t a bore
    5, 6, 7, 8
    And your readathon is going great!

  4. I think you are doing great ... especially considering you don't feel well and you have a little one. I love that he is joining in to help you out!

    Have fun!!!

  5. Woo, keep on reading. The nap and the Chai should you get you right back in the thick of things!

  6. It's getting late, this much is true;
    But you're nearing the home plate! Don't be blue!

  7. I heard mixed reviews about that, I'd be interested in reading yours :)
