Read-a-thon Update!

April 27, 2013

Hour: 10

Books completed: Quidditch Through the Ages by J.K. Rowling

Currently Reading: The Bridge to Holy Cross by Paullina Simons

Thoughts on current book: Ahh I just, ahh! So much heartbreak in these books, seriously. Thoroughly enjoying it but I am so curious to see how it ends!

Pages read since last update: 348

Pages read in total: 348

As I mentioned in my first post, I was being a little naughty and starting early since a) it is already the 27th in Aus and b) I have work during the majority of the set times. I don't want to miss out and I needed to get some reading done.

Anyway, for up until now I decided that staying away from my computer was the best option, as I am an easily distracted person. So here are the progressions I wrote down in my notepad as I went:

8am - Starting from page 156 of The Bridge to Holy Cross
11am - Currently on page 236
12:30pm - Page 286, but decided to take a break and start Quidditch Through the Ages (already read first 17 pages)
1:20pm - Finished Quidditch Through the Ages! Now back to TBTHC
2:30pm - Page 322
3:30pm - Page 359
4:45pm - Page 387... I seem to be slowing down for some reason
5:30pm - Page 410. Taking a short 15 minute break to do this post :)

How are you guys doing in the read-a-thon?
