After 10 hours of Readathon, I am now starting Book #5. I have so far: Finished reading: Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (65%-100%) Read: Ghost World by Daniel Clowes The Marvels by Brian Selznick Dead Man Talking by Roddy Doyle I had a short break for some food, and now comes the tricky part: staying awake … Continue reading Readathon April 2016: Hour 10 (4 books down!)
Book 3 completed! The Marvels was an amazing book, not only in story but artwork and cover design. Just brilliant! Never have 665 pages flew so fast! It was so good that I feel at a bit of a loss now! I need to read something else though. Perhaps one of the shorter books from … Continue reading Readathon April 2016: Hours 8 & 9

I make sure to read without fail before I go to sleep, even if I do end … Continue reading Readathon April 2016: #ReadBlock Challenge
I found a great quote in the book I am reading that works for the ongoing challenge Operation:Quotation I decided to make it pretty. Still reading The Marvels by Brian Selznick. Currently at page 423.

I had my Maltesers. … Continue reading Readathon April 2016: Hours 4, 5 and 6

We're Going on a Bear Hunt - by Michael Rosen. This book! I will never live it down! When I … Continue reading Readathon Hour 2: MINI-CHALLENGE- OUR BOOKISH CHILDHOODS
It's now just after 2pm and I officially started reading at 12.30pm. Lolita is a bit of a slog. I started off at 65% of the way through (I'm reading it on Kindle) and I am only at 79% now. I am not a huge fan of this book, although I appreciate the prose and … Continue reading Readathon April 2016: Hour 01
