Athira (Reading on a Rainy Day) (readingonarainyday) | 831 comments Sorry guys! Only just now am I in front of my computer! I should have just opened this thread yesterday instead of assuming that I will have a lazy Saturday in front of my computer. Grr!

Check in here with your reading and let us know which books you are reading!


message 2: by Nancy H (new)

Nancy H | 645 comments So far today I have finished In Cold Pursuit by Sarah Andrews, which is a really good mystery set in Antarctica, and I have started another book by Amanda Quick, called Deception. I am going to read more of it tonight before I go to sleep, so I will report my total pages for today in the morning.

In Cold Pursuit - p. 275-336 - 61p.

Nadine | 264 comments During this readathon I want to finish my current books and I dug out some others that I had put aside at some point but "always wanted to finish".

Well, you have certainly impressed me! It sounds like you have an excellent system in place for the week. ; )
I am trying to get some books out of the way for a challenge in another group. It always seems that when I get a book off my tbr list, two or three crop up to take its place! No end in sight! lol

The Brothers Karamazov is one of my favorite books, but certainly not a fast read. I hope each page is a pleasure for you.

message 15: by Nadine (new)

Nadine | 264 comments Yes, Connie... it is so tricky. When reading a book I like I automatically have 3 or 4 new books on my "want to read" list. Others by the authors, the genre or the general theme.

I have to say I get a little kick out of my "book finishing project". It is such a good feeling to dig out the old unfinished books and finally end them. I mean those were books I actually enjoyed but dropped because other books came inbetween me and them or they were at some boring or tough spot and I dreaded picking them up again.

Nadine, I understand completely about having a feeling of satisfaction when finishing one of those books you have been meaning to get to forever, but life just gets in the way. You are certainly making fine progress! ; )

No - just too lazy :) to put the titles in. I'll start doing that, though.

The 2-1/2 above are: I finished The Gift of Rain and read The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, then read Death Loves a Messy Desk because I needed a very light read after that first two! By the way, I gave the first two 5 stars - and they were both debut novels.

It's not great, but it's about what I expected. It's only Tuesday, and I've already worked 20 hours this week. I had family in town over the weekend, so I wasn't able to fit much reading in then. Hopefully I'll more time later in the week.

I really am enjoying all the books. I just wish I had more time to focus on them. I'm working 10-11 hours per day through Friday plus at least half a day on Saturday, so time is really at a premium right now. The Curse of Chalion is due Friday at the library, so I'm really going to have to scramble to finish. I'm really impressed with the totals other people are reaching. I miss having free time :-( The OT pay is nice, though.


message 43: by Nadine (new)

Nadine | 264 comments Even with no (regular 8 hour/day-) job I wouldn't be able to get as much read as much as some do. So I am impressed. Sometimes it is good though to have a bit of a deadline for books, even in busy times.

So are you, Linette! WOW! Look at all those books you have finished! ; ) Happy reading wishes to you!

I have been really busy this week, so my reading time has been curtailed. Some weeks are just like that. I am hopeful that I'll have more time for reading tomorrow. I need to get some book challenge choices out of the way.

Nadine | 264 comments Thank you! But mind you the books were 1/4 to 1/2 read when I started. I am "merely" finishing them. But it feels great to finally dig out those books again and finish them. The page count is about what I actually read within the readathon.
