Read-a-Thon: Start of Hour 7

Hour 7 Recap

I'm starting to feel a little weary, so I'm just getting ready to brew up a big pot of tea to keep me going.

I finished A Friend of the the Family by Lauren Grodstein (302 pp). A very good read. That is going to be the only heavy fiction I'm planning on today.

Book 2 was a graphic novel called Sword of Fire and Ice by John Mathews. I love King Arthur stories, but I just couldn't get past about page 20. The novel is not for me: Arthur with giant purple bug creatures? I think not.

So now I'm halfway through book 3, which is also a graphic novel: the first volume in the Fables series. So far I love it. It's funny and well drawn, and I like the general idea.

I hope you have entered to win my lace bookmark. It's a really, really easy meme, so be sure to read about the Eat to Read Mini-Challenge.

I'll probably read another 3 to 5 hours and then it will be cheering for the rest of the night. Glad I stocked up on snacks, tea, and coffee.

Good luck everyone!!!!

Ooohhh, tea, that's a god idea. I might do that myself. You are doing awesome with your reading, I have to do a little better (I didn't even finish book 1).

You have an amazing creative skill there. O_O *impressed* (Alas, I have no snacks. ^-^; )

hope you're enjoying your reading! I'm glad you're enjoying the Fables book! *waves pompoms*
