Readathon: Update 4

I definitely didn't make it as late as I wanted to last night! My goal was to read until 10:30 or 11:00, but I turned my light out and fell fast asleep at 10:15.  I did have odd, Anne of Green Gables-laced dreams, though, so I can I still count that for the readathon?

I'll be back later today for my end of event meme, but for now, here are my reading stats:
Books finished: 0; 2 total
Time spent reading: 45 minutes; 7 hours, 45 minutes total
Pages read/listened to: 50 pages; 454 pages total/ 0 minutes; 30 minutes total

Readathon: Update 3

I finished The Shape of Desire, and it is definitely time for the contatcts to come out!

I'm not sure what I'm going to read next, but I do know that I will be heading to bed in the next hour or hour and a half (can't let that sleep rthym get off if I want to be productive at school this week...).  My goal is to reach at LEAST 500 pages before I succumb to sleep.  We'll see if I make it!

Reading stats:
Books finished -- 1 (The Shape of Desire); 2 total
Time spent reading -- 2 hours; 7 hours total
Pages read/listened to -- 138 pages; 404 pages total/ 0 minutes; 30 minutes total

Readathon: Update 2

I am now firmly ensconced in The Shape of Desire, by Sharon Shinn, and I am coming to the realization that I will probably never love any of her books like I did her Samaria series.  Those books kind of brought me back into reading fantasy, and they will always hold a special place in my heart.

I'm going to make myself some supper (nachoes and M & Ms...yum!), and then I fully expect to finish The Shape of Desire very soon.  After that, it will be a battle to the death between starting Son of the Shadows and giving in to one of the Samaria books...

Reading stats:
Books finished -- 0; 1 (Daughter of the Forest) total
Time spent reading -- 3 hours; 5 hours total
Pages read/listened to -- 186 pages; 266 pages total/ 0; 30 minutes total

Readathon: Update 1

I just got home from tutoring, so my readathon can officially begin! I read some this morning before I tutored, I listened to my audiobook on my drive to and from tutoring, and then, of course, I read during lunch.

I'm hoping to see these numbers go up significantly over the next few hours! Plus it's rainy and dreary outside, which is perfecting reading weather :)

Reading stats:
Books finished -- 1 (Daughter of the Forest, which was possibly BETTER the second time through...) Time spent reading -- 2 hours
Pages read/listened to -- 80 pages /30 minutes

The Readathon is Almost Here!

I'm SO excited about the readathon! It has come at the perfect time, and I'm really looking forward to spending tomorrow escaping into the world of books. I have to tutor from 9:00-1:00 tomorrow, but after that, I'm going to read, read, read. I'm getting a jump start on my reading tonight, and I'm particularly excited that the reading fates aligned and delivered Sharon Shinn's newest book, The Shape of Desire, to my library just in time to read tomorrow! Yay!
