This is our discussion thread for High Summer 2018.


message 2: by Elyse (last edited Jun 30, 2018 07:53AM) (new)

Elyse (winesaboutbooks) | 438 comments So excited to begin! I think this will be the first Readathon where I'm starting completely fresh. I should be finishing the 2 books I'm currently reading today. What I'm afraid of, lol, is managing to start something else today and not finishing it! Might just do some DVR-bingeing instead as I need to catch up on a few shows and I won't be devoting much time to TV starting tomorrow! :) Or knock out a graphic novel from my Comixology stash.

Stina (stinalyn) | 6 comments Well, first I'm reading pages for the screenplay workshop that meets later today. Then I will try to finish up some of the books I started reading last month!

Elyse (winesaboutbooks) | 438 comments Book 1: The Battle of Hackham Heath (346 pgs) Finished 7/4


message 5: by Readsandeats (new)

Readsandeats | 14 comments Well I don't know if I should count the book I have just finished or start fresh, considering I was already 95% through the book.
Me thinks fresh would be a good idea.

Am not going to do a tbr for this readathon and just read what I feel like at the time.

Here we go!!!

Kendra | 9 comments And so it starts.... The Poisonwood Bible by Barbra Kingsolver
