Readathon hours 1-4

Books I read: Wintergirls and Chocolate Vol 3
#of pages read these 4 hours: 322 pages
Time spent reading: 3hrs40 mins
Mini-Challenges completed: 2
#of pages total read this far: 322pages
Total books completed so far: 1 book
Snacks/Meals eaten: Lunchables Ham, Cheddar + Mini Ritz
My Thoughts: Well I would have read more pages and completed more books but I had to go audiobook because my son had rocket day with the boy scouts. Am I disappointed with myself no because my son enjoyed him self and my daughter had fun at the playground. I will now move on to more serious reading that does not require audiobook. Chocalot was a short Manga of only 200 pages and I enjoyed it its about the trials and tribulations of groupies following their favorite band. The setting takes place in Korea. I have learned a lot about some of the Korean culture through this series.

Good luck today. Have fun! I'm not reading, but I am cheerleading and hosting a mini challenge tonight. Happy reading! (I have trouble concentrating on audiobooks, but of course you shouldn't feel guilty - congratulations on finding a way to get some books AND family time in.). I want to read Wintergirls one of these days.

Audiobooks work, but I know you didn't feel like you were "really" reading. Have fun the rest of the day! Go readers!

Austen, Hemingway
Rushdie, Poe
If they were here
I’m sure they’d say hello

Bronte, Tolstoy
Thoreau, Albee
They think you’re swell
And I agree
