Readathons and Book Clubs

So, usually I don't participate in readathons or book clubs because I just don't have the time.

 

This year, though, I decided to do a readathon and want to participate in a book club. Ambitious, I know. :D

 

The readathon, I want to do, is the #ayearathon. I changed the rules a little bit - I know, first I say I want to participate and then I already start changing the rules - because I don't always have time when the reading week takes place each month. So instead I plan to read a book fitting the theme sometime during the month. I don't give myself a weekly limit. 

 

For January the theme is "Benchwarmer - a book that has been sitting on your shelf for a while". For that I chose:

I'm confident I will finish it until the end of the month, though I am not as excited about it as I am usually are with Phillips' books.

 

The book club I joined is the German BookCircle. I will start next month since I didn't join until a few days ago. I'm curious how this will go. I hope that this will get me out of my comfort zone. 

 

Are you doing any readathons this year? Or are you a member of a book club?

#AYearAThon July 2015 Agatha Christie ~ Warp-Up

 

Wrap-Up

 

Unfortunately the weekend wasn't the best time for me to read or even do my daily blog post. So even though I think I did not bad "overall", I didn't finish on a high.

I can tell you I finished Card on the Table on Saturday morning, then started reading Evil Under the Sun. I'm ashamed I only read 44 pages. 

But do not despair, even though #AYearAThon is over, I will finish this book. It is an Agatha Christie after all.

 

So here is what I accomplished for #AYearAThon July 2015:

 

 

Total Pages Read: 754

Total Books Finished:

The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie

A Murder Is Announced by Agatha Christie

Cards On The Table by Agatha Christie 

(You can check out all my reviews by clicking onto each title)

#AYearAThon July 2015 Agatha Christie ~ Day #5

 

Day #5

 

I didn't get as much reading done as I would of liked. Actually come to think of it, I say that a lot. My ideal of reading is non-stop 24/7, but unfortunately there are things to do.

 

Even though I didn't finish Cards on the Table by Agatha Christie, I did read a good chunk of it. I'm positive I'll finish it by tomorrow morning.

#AYearAThon July 2015 Agatha Christie ~ Day #4

 

Day #4

 

So far day four has been my favourite. Not only did I read more, but I also finished A Murder Is Announced and started on the next book, Card On The Table.

I think mainly it had to do with being unable to put down A Murder Is Announced. It was absolutely brilliant, I just had to get to the end of it to know who done it.

Hopefully I can do the same tomorrow....but we will see.

#AYearAThon July 2015 Agatha Christie ~ Day #3

 

Day #3

 

I started straight away with the next book; A Murder Is Announced. I've said it once and I'll say it again, Agatha Christie knows how to capture you in and keep you there.

Even though I couldn't put the book down, mother duties beckoned. So I didn't get a lot of reading done, even though I was happy with my progress.

I'm hoping to finish A Murder Is Announced and begin my next Agatha Christie crime mystery.
