pre-read-a-thon

There is a Catch-up Read-a-thon going on and I thought I would join. It sounds funny to do a pre-read-a-thon before the real thing, but I like the idea. Fall is my favorite time of the year and I really enjoy reading during this time. I'm going to use the week to read more after work and just slow down and enjoy the season.

R.I.P. V Challenge


Peril the First: To read 4 scary books of any length.

Here are some of my picks this year. I'm not going to start reading them until October, after the Read-a-thon.

Hour Eighteen

Books Read: Coraline by Neil Gaiman
How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff
Understood Betsy by Dorothy Fisher
Total Pages Read: 732
Time Spent Reading: 12 hours

Currently reading: Matilda by Roald Dahl

mini-Challenge: I would rather read...

Your mission, which you MUST accept, is to turn to page 23 of the book
you're currently reading (or the nearest page with text on it) and find
the most entertaining phrase to complete the following sentence:



"I would rather read than _____________ any night!"

"I would rather read than mix a lot of sawdust any night!"

"I would rather read than wear jackets with large brightly-colored checks any night!"

"I would rather read than use my brains any night!"

Matilda by Roald Dahl =)

Reading is fundamental mini-challenge!

*happy dance* I won a crocheted bookmark from Joystory!
