Are you a mood reader? Sometimes it's hard for me to decide on a TBR because I don't feel like reading what I've previously decided on.

It's a struggle. You want to read all the books....just not now.


Adrianna [SypherLily] (sypherlily) | 274 comments Hope everyone's first day went well! My second day just started and I'm feelin' pretty good after yesterday :D

Doing well here as well. I was able to finish a book, but not one that I had planned on reading. I won't promise that I will follow my TBR for today either.


message 21: by Trisha (new)

Trisha | 402 comments It’s good to see people taking part! I don’t usually follow a planned TBR list either, Karen - for most readathons I only add books to my TBR once I start reading them.


message 22: by Trisha (new)

Trisha | 402 comments Thank you to everyone who has been reading. Remember to post your pages, please. Good luck with your next readathon.
