It has taken me ages to log in this morning. I think there is something wrong with my modem, but eventually I have managed to get in.

Since I last updated I have slept for about 8 hours, been to the shops, done some dishes and some washing, and now I am having some breakfast.

Reading wise I finished Tales from Outer Suburbia, which I really loved. Shaun Tan is an amazing artist/storyteller. Now I am about 40 pages into The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner.

I only have an hour or so before I need to start getting ready to go out, so I am planning on reading for at least some of that time, and then when we get home I will be having a concentrated reading time. That's the plan anyway.

Running totals

Minutes read: Approximately 115

Pages read during official readathon: Approximately 280

Pages read so far this weekend: Approx 580

Books completed during official readathon: 2

Books completed so far this weekend: 3


  1. Almost 600 pages is great - hope you get some more good reading time in before your day is over!

  2. This read-a-thon might just be the thing you needed to get reading again! I really need to get around to reading The Thief!

  3. Well done on your reading! I hope you can catch some shut-eye, too, before the day wears on. I'm so impressed by all these books being devoured over the past twenty four hours.
