A Winter's Respite Read-a-Ton Starting Post and Updates


A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict starts today!  I woke up at 4:30 this morning and could not go back to bed.  So I got up, fed the cats and was back in bed with a book at 5.  Reading was just what I needed because after half an hour I was fast asleep.  I was fortunate enough to be able to sleep in until a quarter to eight and am officially starting the read-a-thon.

Reading Pool:
By the Shores of Silver Lake by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Cheri by Colette
Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
Cinder by Marrissa Meyer

    1. I'm more than happy to be joining you! I've always thought diversity is the key to a successful readathon; if you get bored with your current read you have something else/difference waiting in the wings.

  2. Your list looks awesome. I just read Mrs. Dalloway and I'm going to read Great Expectations soon, so I'm interested to read your thoughts of those.

  3. Awww, it's been YEARS since I read any LIW! *pauses for a nostalgic moment* I'm hoping that I might be able to squeeze Great Expectations AND Edwin Drood in come February, but we shall see. Looking forward to catching up with you this week! :)

"It is your turn to say something now, Mr. Darcy. I talked about the dance, and you ought to make some kind of remark on the size of the room, or the number of couples."

It is your turn to say something now dear readers, thank you for stopping by.
