Ongoing Readathon Updates Take Two

Update Seven, Hour 18: 11:12 p.m.

So, City of Bones. On page 208, just over 50 pages further then I was last update. And I read for most of those 2 hours, I think. Except when I had to take care of the crazy kitty, and watch the fireworks that were suddenly happening over by the mountains.

I'm feeling sleepy but not mind numbingly so quite yet.

So. City of Bones. It's okay, but still not over the top awesome as some of you have reported. What am I missing? They're just about to head off to a midnight party being hosted by some warlock dude that Clary seems to have stuck in her brain. Will something happen soon?

Did I tell you it snowed pretty much all day here? And it's like really really cold. That's pretty perfect reading weather, wouldn't you say?

I think I've read about 400 pages so far, but only about maybe five or six total hours worth. How does that happen? I don't get it. So frustrating. Some of you and your whole stack of books that you read totally amaze me.

Oh, Toto finished Shimmer and is now onto Diary of a Wimpy Kid The Ugly Truth. Yes, she's still up and reading with me. I don't know how much longer she will last.

I don't know how much longer I will last! But I guess a bit more, and then I'll do one final update before I call it quits.


Update Six Hour... 16? 9:00 p.m.

So here's the deal.... I'm back now to the readathon after quite a big birthday party break. This birthday party was for a one year old baby whose dad works with my husband. They are from India, and as I understand it, the first birthday is a big big deal and a huge party is expected. So we went to support them and of course, to partake of awesome Indian food!

And now that I'm back, I don't want to do the same update template fill out the blank thing I've been doing the first part of this readathon. I just want to do random thought post updates.(Still in this same spot, new updates at top.) Because I'm having this issue with keeping track of stuff! I'll just tell you how it's going for the rest of this evening, now and then, for my updates. Is it a plan?

Since we updated last, before the party, I finished Skellig, which I loved. And it's a Printz Honor book too! How nice is that!? And now, instead of doing a small, "quick" (ha, obviously I'm not too quick this day) book, I think I'll just read some City of Bones which I started pre-readathon. I'm on page 150... so we'll go from there and see how it goes for a bit with that one.

Music: Josh Groban station on Pandora.... ah... perfect.

Toto, earlier this morning.


  1. Sounds like a cool birthday party! I hope you have a good evening from here on out. Good luck! :)

    I'm tucking in for a long night. Since I'm on spring break, I'm actually going to give this late night a go. We'll see!

  2. Perfect and welcome back. I loved the photo of your daughter reading also. :)

  3. Awesome Indian food is a fine excuse for a Readathon break however lengthy it may be. =)

    Keep up the great reading!

  4. You’re doing great! Keep it up! So glad you could join us today and hope you’re having fun!
