48 Hour Read-a-Thon--Wrap Up Post

Well, I didn't read as much as I had planned, but I did finish Virgin and the Crab by Robert Parry.  Wow, what a book! I loved it...which is why I didn't give up on it, but it was a pretty difficult read.  Look for my review in the next couple of days.  After finishing the Robert Parry book, I started Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show by Frank Delaney.  I got to page 100.  I'm really enjoying this one and I can tell it's going to be a fast read for me. 

So...I'm pleased with myself.  Although I didn't read as much as I had planned, I do feel a certain sense of accomplishment.  I would like to thank Wallace at Unputdownables again for hosting such an awesome read-a-thon. 

Next up is the Read Your Own Books Read-a-Thon hosted by Monica at The Bibliophilic Book Blog from August 13-16.  Will you be joining me on this one?  I hope so!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. Congrats Michelle! I'm looking forward to reading your review of The Virgin and the Crab!

    It was quite a productive Read-a-thon weekend for me too, you can see about it here.

    And of course I'll also join the Read your own books Read-a-thon :-)

  3. i need to find a weekend to do some reading--my schedule has been so hectic that i'm having a hard time finding 30 uninterrupted minutes to read, let alone an entire weekend! maybe one day soon... :) here's to wishful thinking.

    nice job on your reading!

    ps. would you be able to change your comment setting to allow for name/url comments? i can't post comments here unless i use google. other 'blogger' blogs have this option checked and it makes life just a bit easier for those of us with self-hosted or non-blogger blogs. :) thanks!
