Read-a-thon 2018

Recommended Posts

I read the third Carole B Shmurak book, Death at Hilliard High ( v. good :) ) and started on Cherry Blossom Murder - Fran Pickering ( 5 chapters in - it`s whodunnit set in Japan ; I`m liking it, but maybe not as much Rei Shimura series by Sujata Massey. :)

 

So, 3 books and a bit for the May read-a-thon. :)

I'm so sorry I didn't reply to this sooner! That's great progress :)!

 

The next read-a-thon will take place this upcoming weekend, the 1rst, 2nd and 3rd of June (Friday, Saturday, Sunday).

Thanks for the reminder - I didn`t realise it was read-a-thon time again ! :o Hee, that gives me an `excuse` to ditch the newspaper catch-up and get back to reading books. ;)

Oh my goodness a new month again! I don’t think I am going to be able to do much reading this weekend, but I’m going to make an effort to read at least an hour a day for the week.

I started read-a-thoning last night ; I read the last 15% of EE Holmes` Portraits of the Forsaken ( excellent :D  ) , the last 60% of David Handler`s The Man who Dies Laughing ( pretty good ), and the first 40% of the second David Handler/ Stewart Hoagy mysteries, The Man who lived by Night. :)

 

I have a month left of my Kindle Unlimited thingy, so I`m hoping to cram lots of books in. :D

Yay!! I hope you are able to read plenty more books before your Kindle Unlimited expires :).

 

On Thursday I read:

 

Akiko Higashimura - Princess Jellyfish 4: Volume 4 (Kuragehime 7 & 8)

Konami Kanata - The Complete Chi's Sweet Home 4 (10-12): Part 4

Keiko Tobe - With the Light 4: Volume 4 (re-read)

 

And on Friday I read:

 

Clamp - Chobits 1: Volume 1

Simone Arts and Tante Beun - Fashion Academy 1: Flamenco meets flowerpower (re-read)

 

I don't think I'll be able to do much reading today as I have a lot of things to do, but we'll see.

 

Happy read(-a-thon-)ing to anyone who's doing some bookish reading this weekend :).

Your reading is going well :D!

 

Yesterday I read Mis(h)adra by Iasmin Omar Ata. I didn't read anything else though, I was pretty busy most of the day.

 

I had fun during the read-a-thon :).

 

The next read-a-thon will take place on the 6th, 7th and 8th of July (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). I might start on the Thursday again (the 5th), I'll have to see how things go.
