Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) I hope everyone got some great reading done!!!! i'm putting this post up early for those of you that only participated in the day-long readathon. (Week-long participants post here as well.)

Just give us a brief summary of how your reading went for the day/week. Here's an optional format to post your summary in:

~Books you Read From
~Books You Finished
~Total Reading Time (optional)
~Total Pages/Percent Read (optional) {For audiobooks, this could be the total chapters listened to.}

You can do basically the same setup for Audiobooks if you listened to some of those.

Vera (verareads) | 123 comments February Readathon

Books Read:

Be Like Water Practical Wisdom from the Martial Arts by Joseph Cardillo -This is a library book on my Nook. Will probably finish it today.

My Life by Bill Clinton I'm trying to read some in this every day so I will finish it before the year is over! It just seems to go really slow but he is a good writer, politics is just not my thing.

Naked City Tales of Urban Fantasy by Ellen Datlow -This is an anthology of urban fantasy stories, which have been very good so far.

The Sauvignon Secret (Wine Country Mysteries, #6) by Ellen Crosby This is an overdue library book I'm trying to finish so I can turn it in before the fine is too much. I would just turn it in and try to check it out again later, but its from another branch of the library and I don't know how long it would be before I could check it out again. Hopefully I'll finish it today too.

Books Finished:
Shaded Vision (Otherworld / Sisters of the Moon #11) by Yasmine Galenorn 306 pages

The Sauvignon Secret (Wine Country Mysteries, #6) by Ellen Crosby The Sauvignon Secret 256 pages

2/18/2012 Pages Read: 232
2/19/2012 Pages Read: 267
2/20/2012 Pages Read: 283

So, now I've finished 2 books, and still reading a couple more. Unfortunately I got up with a sinus headache, so will have to see how my reading goes.
