It’s hour 16ish and closing in on Midnight for me, so I’m going to close my day with the “Mid-Event Survey”
What are you reading right now?
Getting ready to take my Kindle with The Secret Garden to bed and read until my eyes shut.
How many books have you read so far?
I haven’t finished anything (and am unlikely to finish anything) but I’m not disappointed because with finishing 7 chapters in The Secret Garden and listening to 6 chapters of in the Audiobook of The Third Daughter, I’ve read more today than I have in the previous month.
I might have to find a picture book on Hoopla, just so that I can have an entry in the books finished database.
What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
Going to bed, because I’ve been exhausted. But our dog has a bad habit of waking up at 6 am, so I’m hoping he gets me up to read some more.
Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
My Readathon day is full of interruptions, and other responsibilities. It has been for pretty much every Readathon I’ve participated in. I just read when I can.
What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
Not a surprise, but I’m loving the Facebook posts and Booklikes blogs about what everyone else is reading and doing today! It’s wonderful to feel like part of community! I’d thought about venturing onto Twitter or Instagram, but decided to pick up a book instead.
P.S. The Split Pea soup was yummy!
So far today I have
It’s nap time now.
Afterwards, I’ll probably listen to more of the audiobook while meeting my daily quota of grinding/farming in Empires and Puzzles
After five books with Stephania "Stevie" -- now POV switches to Alastair. Not a repeat now in a different point of view, just that the book opens in his head instead of hers.
A warm little cozy paranormal mystery so far with engaging characters -- very important to me for these types of books. I actually didn't care for the Paris, Texas series this one and others spun off from -- it was okay as far as I read. But I was really liking Stevie and her bat Belfry. The ghost Alastair was fine as a side character and love interest plus has a slowly unveiling storyline that's been interesting. His frenemy ghost introduced last book is already annoying despite being kind to Stevie -- not really flowing with the storyline for me and I'm tired of reading badly accented Russian and English mix.
So could be a bad one to start for the readathon or could be as fun as previous books in series.
