12 hour Mystery-a-thon Update of Day One

I found out about this today so I decided to join since I am reading a mysteries for the Cozy Mystery Challenge. I hope to complete 1 book and have good chunk of a second book done. I am spreading my hours out over 2 days. Today I completed 6 hours and tomorrow another 6.

So far I have read 176 pages out of 272 readable pages of THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD by Charles Dickens. I hope to complete this by tomorrow morning. The I hope to start on the the True Crime novel : Every Breath You Take by Anne Rule.

So far I signed up for one book giveaway and I will try to do the Weekly Geeks sometime tomorrow. I am exhausted for the night so I will update you on twitter tomorrow on my progress.

Yay, you decided to join! I too am planning on just finishing one book and starting a second. I'm not a very fast reader.

I had hoped to accomplish all 12 hours of reading for this event, but I got nothing read yesterday. So, I am hoping to at least finish one book today.

I did not get to finish. I stayed at a family reunion and end up with only 8 hours of reading slowly
