The End is Upon Us...Or me at least

It's time for me to throw in the towel. Words are starting to blur. Overall, this read-a-thon went better than last time but I still hope to do much better next time. Here's to an awesome October and come back soon and I will try to post short blurbs about my thoughts on the things I read.

Books finished: 1 -Crimson Warning by Tasha Alexander
Books Read: Clash of Kings, glanced at My Ideal Bookshelf, started The Accursed (way to detailed to read this late at night), and started Girl's Guide to Love and Supper Clubs.
Challenges: Only 1 I think

Yet Another Update

One book done! And I am seriously contemplating a nap but I will try to tough it out.

Books read-1 total, 100 pages of Clash of Kings, and flipped through My Ideal Bookshelf to-be read later
Snacks Eaten: I had a some grilled cheese and fries that were delicious
Breaks Taken:Quite a few-trip to library, work, and to watch Doctor Who

Back to Reading

Home from work, which was boring as always(that's what I get for working retail) and I managed to get a few pages in on my break. Of course then I had to watch Doctor Who. Which was fantastic by the way. Don't you love that we got to see some of the stuff in the Tardis that they frequently mention like the pool or the library? I would run away with the Doctor just to see that library.

Update Again

My trip to the library went well, I picked up a few good books that I might add to my list today. Reading has to stop for a while now, work is waiting. Will be back in a few hours so don't have too much fun without me!

Time for an Update

So after waking up late I have made some decent progress. 100 pages of Clash of Kings done and I started Crimson Warning. No meme participation yet and just some tasty frozen waffles eaten. Time to head to the library!

The Starting Line

I love when it is time for another Read-a-thon! I have a feeling I won't get too much done since I have to work later and I am off to a little bit of a late start, but we will see how it goes. I have a short list this time because I procrastinated and didn't get my requests in at the library soon enough. Hopefully, I will have some books in when I take a trip there in a few hours.

To read list:
-Clash of Kings: George R.R. Martin-I am about halfway through so hoping to make some good progress.
-The Stockholm Octavo-Karen Englemann
-A Crimson Warning-Tasha Alexander-one of my favorite series for read-a-thons
-Royal Flush-Rhys Bowen
-The Accursed-Joyce Carol Oates

Opening Meme Questions:

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?-The lovely Ohio
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to?-probably The Accursed
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to?-I never remember to plan out my snacks 
4) Tell us a little something about yourself!-I started knitting in September and one of the first things I made was a scarf similar to the ones in Harry Potter. Ultimate Goal is to one day make a Weasley sweater.
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? -I will follow the same strategy that I have for the last couple read-a-thons, switch books when getting bored/tired, and take a few breaks.

So it's been awhile...

I seem to only blog when it is time for a read-a-thon. I wonder why that is. Most likely, it's because I over think what to write and then procrastinate and don't actually get anything done (pretty much like I do with everything else in my life).

Unfortunately, my luck has run out and I have to work Saturday the 27th the day of the read-a-thon, which is what I get working retail. But, I will still try to read as much as possible and will even bring a book to work to read on break. I might post a rough list of possible reads at some point, and I may even write some other posts. Miracles do happen.
