READ-A-THON UPDATE AND JENN'S CHALLENGE

Last night, I actually didn't start reading until about 11pm.  I was watching movies with my mom.  So I ended up staying up all night...until 7am! I finally finished Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show and got started on The Queen's Pawn by Christy English.  I'm hoping I will finish that one tonight (it seems like a fast read so far and it's not very long) and get started on Dracula in Love by Karen Essex.

Now for a read-a-thon challenge:

Jenn (one of our hosts) at Book Crazy has asked us the following question:

If you could be read into a book, which book would it be and why? What is it about that story that you find utterly overpowering? Which world would you choose to lose what you have here on earth for?

My answer would be the Harry Potter series.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I have always loved school.  I've pretty much been in school in one way, shape or form all my life.  So to me, Harry Potter's world would be excellent.  First, you get to go and live at a school that is an awesome castle for almost a whole year and on top of that, you get to learn magic and other fantastical things! Plus the adventure and the mythical creatures.  I would absolutely love it! Just call me Hermione Granger...a muggle who loves school and wants to learn magic!


Fun challenge, Jenn...thanks!

Read-a-thon starts up again in an hour and a half.  Time to get my read on!

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!

  1. Oh fun - I want to go into the Potter books with you! They are my all time favorite series.

  2. I don’t see how you can stay awake all night reading. I would love to be able to do that, but no matter how excellent the book is, my eyes just won’t cooperate.

    Enjoyed reading your reply to Jenn’s question.
