Read-a-thon


As I mentioned in my previous post, there was no way I was ever going to make it all through the night reading for the Read-A-Thon, so instead of participating I have spent all day visiting the blogs of the people who were actually reading and trying to cheer them on. Let me tell you, there were a lot of blogs on that list! I think I made it around to everyone who is participating at least once. Sorry if I missed you. It definitely wasn't intentional.

Because I don't have enough feeds in my Bloglines account, I also found several more interesting looking blogs to my feed reader, but at least I am all caught up to with the feeds I did have - for now at least. It's just a case of staying caught up!

In case you were wondering about how I went with the soccer game last night, the answer is not that great! I missed the first ten minutes because I just wanted to read the end of the current chapter in the book I was reading. Then I moved into the lounge to watch the soccer and fell asleep after about ten minutes. I woke up at the end but by that time I had missed all of the five goals that were scored in the game! Whoops!

  1. Marg: I can't believe it! I'm a lover of cozy mysteries too, but I couldn't find a book on your list that we have both reviewed!

    I've read lots of Elizabeth Peters' books but not reviewed them, so those don't count.

    Please visit www.bookbirddog.blogspot.com and hope you will like some of the mysteries I reviewed.

    They are not listed in any order, by the way, but my favorites are gardening mysteries, birding mysteries, and other mystery series with a theme.

    You are certainly an avid reader!!! So many books read! Congrats!

  2. Love this blog! Haven't quite caught up with it all yet but feel very much at home here.
    Thank God blogger chooses to highlight blogs of note otherwise gems like this would be completely lost to mere mortals such as myself.

  9. Nice job cheerleading as well, I saw you on a lot of the blogs I visited. It was hard to visit everyone, but I think all the cheerleaders combined did a great job!

  17. Agree! What luck - I just happened to see this one under the 'blogs of note' and I am hugely impressed!

    I run a small book review blog in South Africa but this is a damn classy blog.

    Definately one I am adding a link to.

    Well done!
