Michelle | 397 comments I probably shouldn't do this. I've signed up for readathons and forgotten to update my progress. I'm going out of town tomorrow. I'm meeting author Kristen Martin tomorrow. I'm probably way too excited to focus on reading. But I'm in.

message 22: by Shaunesay (new)

Shaunesay Everyone is linked up to here!

It's just about time, though some of you may have started!

I get to spend my morning taking my three cats to the vet, so let's start off by telling us about your furry reading buddies if you have one!

Only one of mine will actually sit on my lap, but he actually sits on other parts of me too, my back if I'm laying on my stomach, my chest if I'm laying down, or my hip if I'm on my side. He doesn't really know how to cat very well, actually, he's a bit awkward! ;)


message 23: by Erin (new)

Erin | 12 comments The readathon started an hour ago for me. Good luck to everyone and happy reading!


message 24: by Karen (new)

Karen (karinlib) | 1432 comments Mod
my cat is definitely not a lap cat, but he will sit next me while I am reading and keep me company.


message 25: by Brave (new)

Brave (bravereads) I have a cat who likes to get between me and the book, and then do this weird flop to force me to catch him and hold him like a baby. He's also the biggest cat my vet has seen that isn't a Maine Coon (he's 18 pounds! and tall/long!) so it's a scary trust game he's invented.


message 26: by Cathrine (last edited May 26, 2018 03:44PM) (new)

Cathrine | 46 comments I'd planned to join this read-a-thon and have been reading a lot today, I just didn't make a post until now. Better late than never, I suppose.

Currently reading: Artemis by Andy Weir (I had read 100 p. before the read-a-thon started).

Total pages read: 205
Books finished: Artemis by Andy Weir

I just finished it! I liked it a lot but I think the ending was a bit abrupt. I would have liked a bit more of a conclusion.


message 30: by Erin (new)

Erin | 12 comments That’s great! I can definitely agree on the ending


message 31: by Shaunesay (new)

Shaunesay Brave, I hear you on cat trust issues! Ours definitely trust us to not hurt them accidentally a lot more than we trust ourselves! always underfoot, sleeping on the stairs, etc.

I hope everyone has had a great day! We all survived our trip to the vet! I haven't read a lot today, but did manage to finish Ms. Marvel, Vol. 5 Super Famous by G. Willow Wilson just now!

I started another short book earlier today that I may read on some more here in a bit: Dragon School First Flight by Sarah K.L. Wilson


message 32: by Erin (new)

Erin | 12 comments I just finished Along Came a Spider! I have 3 1/2 hours left in the readathon, so I’m going to go on a run and then read a bit more.
How’s everyone else doing?


message 33: by Brave (new)

Brave (bravereads) I definitely haven't done as well as I might've liked to do. But I've enjoyed the read-a-thon all the same!


message 34: by Erin (new)

Erin (sweeterin) | 104 comments And 12 hours later i am done with Diary of a Mad Bride. Thank goodness. Now i can stretch and go to bed 😁

I hope everyone had a fun day of reading ❤📖


message 35: by Trisha (new)

Trisha | 422 comments Thanks - I had a good day reading even though I had other things to do too. Glad your cats are ok, Shaunesay. My cat usually curls up & sleeps on my lap while I read. But yesterday was too hot, so she just kept me company by sleeping on a different chair.

Brave, your cat sounds amazing! Mine only weighs just over 8 pounds.

He's quite the panther (he's a big black cat), and definitely something, but sometimes I wish I had an 8 pound cat instead, like when he tries to lay on me in the middle of the night! haha!

I love hearing about peoples' pets, especially cats! There are so many PURRsonalities out there. hahaha.
