I'm going to visit a friend that particular Saturday, but otherwise I think I might be able to take part! I can also read on the train on my way to see said friend, and back :)

 

I wish you lots of fun with your friend :)! I hope you can join us on the other days :). It'd be nice to read on the train too :)! It's awesome you'll be joining us :friends3:.

The April read-a-thon is this upcoming weekend (12-13-14) though I might start on Thursday already. I'm excited to read some of my graphic novels / manga / etc.

 

I finished my previous read this morning (Unbroken by various authors). I'm not sure if I want to start another book for 2-3 days, or whether I want to take a break from reading for a few days. We'll see. I don't feel like starting a new book yet to be honest!

 

I hope some of you will join me in this upcoming weekend :). (Though, it's only Monday, so I suppose it's a bit early to think of the next weekend already, but.. oh well!).

Happy read-a-thon-ing this weekend, @karen.d and anyone who's participating :)!

 

Yesterday I read Donald Duck Pocket 224 and A Silent Voice Volume 3. Today I read Fruits Basket Volume 3 (re-read) and I'm currently re-reading Fruits Basket Volume 4.

I ended up finishing Fruits Basket Volume 4 on Friday and in the evening I read Cucumber Quest 3: The Melody Kingdom. Then yesterday I read I Hate Fairyland 2: Fluff My Life (by Skottie Young), and I read Awkward 3: Crush (by Svetlana Chmakova). This morning I read The Witch Boy 2: The Hidden Witch by Molly Knox Ostertag and I'm currently reading Mr. Wolf's Class 2: Mystery Club by Aron Nels Steinke.

So far I've read:

 

Friday: 'I Let you Go' by Claire Mackintosh 64 pages

 

Saturday: 'I Let you Go' by Claire Mackintosh 64 pages

 

Sunday: 'I Let You Go' by Claire Mackintosh  88 pages Finished and it is such a good book!

 

Now, I'm about to start reading 'Never Say Spy' by Diane Henders

 

Edit> I read 54 pages of 'Never Say Spy' by Diane Henders yesterday, so in total, I read 270 pages over the weekend. Not the highest page count for a read-a-athon, but I was busy with friends and other stuff. I still really enjoyed the reading though!

Continuing on from my last post, on Sunday I ended up finishing Mr. Wolf's Class 2: Mystery Club and then read Kid Gloves by Lucy Knisley.

 

I enjoyed my reading too :).

 

The May read-a-thon takes place on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of May.

I had a really chaotic weekend for the read-a-thon but I did manage to finish Rite of Passage. It was only a total of 70 pages but I'm glad I finished it :) 

 

Glad you both enjoyed what you read too!
