Reading romances for the Readathon (say that 10 times fast!) is a great idea. They would definitely make the time go faster ... then again, they could add to some, uh ... distractions. :)

Great job on the readathon so far! Keep up the great work!

I just stopped by to cheer you on and share my Read-A-Thon poem.

If I could have one wish,
I know what I would say.
Just give me my books,
And let me read all day.

Happy Reading.

I hope you're enjoying The Memorist. I read it about a year ago and it was pretty good. Have fun!

Are you still reading :-) ? But you definitely have gotten a lot of reading done; good job!!

Sounds like you're learned some lessons about what to choose to read. I picked all books I need to read for reviews or challenges and it is slow going even though I like what I'm reading.
