How's your reading going?

Have you read either of the group reads? If so be sure to let us know your thoughts on said book in the discussion threads :)


So far I've read Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson I read a little before the start of the ReadAThon That I won't count. I'm counting 301 of the pages towards my total.(The books is 337 Pages in total)

Then I read The Murder at the Vicarage (Miss Marple #1) by Agatha Christie and that was 259 pages.

So in total so far I've read 560 Pages. Not bad considering I didn't read any books(I say books cause fanfiction hahaha) Wednesday.

I hope everyone's reading is going well!

Elizabeth I'm done with my picks for on both the 1st to 4th days I've already ready both books which were Jaws by Peter Benchley and Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers ,so I 'm going to try and read some of White Shark by Peter Benchley ,they made a movie from it called Creature in 1998.its written by the same author as Jaws.


message 3: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Reading White Shark by Peter Benchley and I'm 51 pages in it,its been awhile since I've read it and I'm loving it,while I did like Jaws by Peter Benchley and give that one a four and a half stars,this one is differently a five star rating,while I did see the movie they made by in 1998 ,the movie Creature was good bit this book is a hole lot better.which means while I liked the movie,I however love the book .

Howl's Moving Castle (Howl's Moving Castle, #1) by Diana Wynne Jones currently pg 331

The Rules of Attraction by Bret Easton Ellis currently pg 34

I don't think I'll be getting to any other books tomorrow. So just these two for Day 6...unless I pick up James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl to break up the adult book. Sometimes I get tired of reading the same book.

Lara (laraiswrite) | 100 comments Yesterday was incredibly busy for me so sadly I was only able to read 38 pages of The Book Thief. I probably won't get much further today too because I've been cleaning and have my niece's bday party to go to this afternoon. But I'll read as much as possible! ^_^ I can't believe tomorrow is the last day!!!
((end of day edit)
As I suspected, I wasn't able to read much today. I got a whopping 36 pages done! Lol. I'm really hoping I can marathon through the rest of the book tomorrow. Only 175 pages left. If I can effectively tell everyone to sod off, I can totally finish it before the readathon ends. Haha. =p

Melissa Chung (bingereader19) | 123 comments Day 6 was amazing!!! Finshed: Howl's Moving Castle (Howl's Moving Castle, #1) by Diana Wynne Jones James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl

The Rules of Attraction by Bret Easton Ellis currently on pg 49

I'm hoping to pick up either Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times by Emma Trevayne or Insanity by Susan Vaught tomorrow. I think Rules of Attraction will take to long to read in a day.
