Such a mix. ttfn is a fast fast read. You could finish it in a night or on the weekend! *pst* It counts for the green cover challenge too!

I didn't care for Evermore so I have yet to move on the rest of the series or to any of her other books. But I have Radiance. I might have to try that series out.

Zakiya the Walking Butterfly (walkingbutterfly) | 3739 comments Mod
Really!? I loved Evermore! And Radiance is super good, too!

Yeah, I need to do a post for Challenges...Hmm.

Last Sacrifice doesn't look so green to me. LOL! I still haven't read book one in that series yet.

Really!? Wow. You totally have too!!!!

And yeah, I know. I haven't stared at the actual cover yet, but I will have to do that later... I might not even get that far in rereading the series, so it won't really matter.

2/12/2011 Update:

Main Focus: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë Jane Eyre, at 10%. Really enjoying this book! I'd already read this part, but this time it's more boring than the first. Oh well, determined to finish!

Secondary Focus: Emma by Jane Austen Emma, at Vol 2 Ch 2. Really liking this one as well! Very interesting indeed. I'm starting to think Austen is going to be one of my absolute favorite authors. :)

Other Stuff:
~~A readathon started today, and I'm tracking how much I read each day, as far as time goes. Today (so far): 4 hr, 2 min.

Have you read any Stephen King? I was thinking of trying to read Under the Dome? You want in. Maybe start Jan 1st and see how long it takes both of us to get through it. Like with the Host.

I've never done a readathon before. We should try on here sometime.

Zakiya the Walking Butterfly (walkingbutterfly) | 3739 comments Mod
Yeah I was thinking the same thing! How often should we do them? Every month is too soon...but three seems too long. Every two months?? Starting in Feb.? I would need to get details ready.


message 29: by Mad Scientist (new)

Mad Scientist (MadScientist) | 1134 comments Mod
I'd just try one to see how it goes and ask if people want one every so often.

But I'd be interested. To give it a go. I'm not sure if I can marathon read when I'm in China. But for now I can use it to get some books out of the way.

We really do have a lot of good ideas popping up right now! Personally, I think that, with all the things we have going now, there's no way everyone doesn't have a really good chance of reaching 1 million pages. LOL!
