It's read-a-thon time! As always, this is your official progress post. Use it to share your progress with the group and offer encouragement to your fellow read-a-thonners.

Tell us...
How many pages have you read?
How many books have you read?
What are you reading now?
What have you finished reading?


As with all our read-a-thons, we want to remind participants that the idea is to read, read, read. Read as much as you can and have as much fun as you can doing it. Don't make reading a job or a chore. Don't let the progress of others intimidate or discourage you. Everyone reads at their own pace and we're here to have fun. Go on! Get started! Read and enjoy!

What are you reading now?
Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal

What have you finished reading?
1. Stay with Me by Ayobami Adebayo - I had started this one a few days ago, but I finished up most of it this morning! Very good, very interesting insight into the culture in Nigeria, 4 stars! I won't start counting pages read or books for this one though, since I had over half of it read before the Read-A-Thon started!
2. As Bright as Heaven by Susan Meissner - I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I really enjoyed the historical aspect of it and the way it jumped between character points of view! Another 4 star read.
3. My Name Is Memory by Ann Brashares - Meh. Didn't really enjoy this one much. I got swept away halfway through, but the ending wasn't really an ending and it was quiet annoying. 2.5 stars
4. The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine - It took me a while to get into this one. I hated the main character's point of view, and the dialogue seemed so forced. The ending was great though. 3.5 stars
