Read-A-Thon : End of Hour 3


Books read : 0 still but over halfway through my first one
Pages Read : 42, Total 158
Time Spent Reading : 45 mins, Total 150 mins
Currently Reading : The Good Fairies of New York - Martin Miller

The read-a-thon is going well so far but I am getting less and less time for reading each hour somehow. I gained Merlin as well as Morgaine, but both fled when I got to up to make this post. The Good Fairies is an awesom book and I am really enjoying it so far. Highly recommended. Sad, funny and entertaining all at once. I hope everyone else is having as much fun as I am :)

So far this is all fantastic!

Morph said...

So, is the fairy book a novel or a study of fairies? Can you give a quickie summary of what it's about?

I'm the opposite of you. I'm reading faster. Probably because I started off with a book that was a bit difficult.

Becky said...

It sounds like a great book. I haven't read any Martin Miller. I look forward to reading your review of it :)

Lexie said...

My sister asked me about this book--she loves Fairies in all forms and wanted to know if the book was actually ABOUT Fairies (I'm her card catalog--better then the library my family tells me), so I'll be interested when all is said and done for you about your impressions!

Kristi said...

I feel like I am not spending too much time reading - but I am having fun!

Fyrefly said...

I've got Good Fairies on my TBR pile (although maybe not for today!)... but I'm glad to hear you're enjoying it!

SFP said...

I'll have more time to spend each hour on reading as the day (particularly the evening) wears on. At this point I'm not even letting the family in on the fact that a marathon reading session is in progress!

I've heard good things about the Fairies of New York. Hope you like it!

katrina said...

I've wanted to read that book for ages - just always forget the author when I go to the library - doh.
Hope your enjoying yourself so far

Reverie said...

Girl That Reads said...

158 pages is great! I am going to try to read smaller chunks now, and see if that helps increase my pages per hour.

Good luck!

Tammy said...

I haven't gotten in much reading yet either, but there's still lots of time. Keep at it!

libritouches said...

Glad to hear you're having fun! And that looks like a great page count!

Brittanie said...

I am really tempted to go to Chick-fil-a before breakfast ends to get a biscuit but I think I will make do here at home so I can get more pages read. The internet can be quite distracting. :)

Laza said...

I haven't heard of that. I'll have to check it out.

Megan said...

I haven't read much either maybe I should get going and read a little faster.

Same here, less time to read each hour. Things will pick up eventually...hopefully. Good luck, and I'm glad that you're having fun! :)

Kimmy said...

I've read 150 pages so far, so you're ahead of me;-)

Your book sounds great. I hope you enjoy the rest of it!

My cats love me reading as well. Cats and books just go together!

Margot said...

You seem to be setting a good pace. I feel like I'm moving in slow motion. But, I really don't care as this is fun.

You're doing great so far! As long as you're enjoying the book you're reading, it doesn't matter how much you actually complete!

Blair said...

Great work, I know what you mean about getting less and less reading done, everytime I stop to post it seems there's more to see

Alaine - Queen of Happy Endings said...

My little reading group seemed to get less done in the beginning, to much chatting about books. Good luck, book sounds good. Are youg going to do reviews when the Read-a-thon is over?

Book Lover Lisa said...

Happy reading.

Teddyree said...

Book sounds great. Our reading party is doing more talking & laughing than reading but hey its lots of fun!! Good Luck!!

Memory said...

The read-a-thon is going well so far but I am getting less and less time for reading each hour somehow.The same thing happened to me last time. I found myself reading other peoples' updates instead of hunkering down with my book. It was fun, but I didn't read nearly as much as I expected to. :)
