A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon: My Updates #WintersRespite

In case you haven't heard, I'm hosting my winter read-a-thon, A Winter's Respite, over at my Seasons of Reading read-a-thon blog.  If you haven't already, why not sign-up and join us this week?  I'm hoping I will have time to get some good reading in this week.  Seems like the last few read-a-thons have been a total bust for me.  I say it's time for a game change!

As you can see below, I only updated once and that was because I didn't get shit read. *frown*  Well, I did manage to finish the first half of Les Mis...400 some odd pages.  But nowhere near what I had hoped.  Oh well, I enjoyed it anyway.  Interacting with all of my lovely participants is enough reward in itself! Looking forward to Spring into Horror in April!

for 1/21 and 1/22:

Book I’m reading: Currently reading Persuasion
Number of pages I’ve read: 200 in Les Miserables
Total number of pages I’ve read:  200

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Best of luck! Also, love your new background. Really fits with your header.

  2. Sorry! Meant that scrolling bar from Photobucket. Not sure what the official word would be... ;)

  3. The Night Circus! That book sounds great - I've been meaning to read it for awhile. Hope you have fun & meet your goals!

  4. You have an impressive and varied list. Les Mis and Shakespeare have always intimidated me so go you! Have a wonderful week of reading Michelle.

  5. Good luck with the read-a-thon! Hope this one is a success for you!

  6. Loved The Night Circus. And Les Miserables is my favorite book (that and To Kill A Mockingbird), but I could never have finished it in a week. I think two or three is more like it for me, so I applaud you!

  7. Wow, Michelle, you've got a lot of hefty reads on your list!

    I really want to read The Night Circus!!

    I hope you have lots of down-time this week to enjoy all those goodies!

  8. Lots of great reading there especially the Shakespeare. I am unfortunately very bogged down with projects and thus unable to join.

    Have fun!

  9. A lot of great books on your list. I can't wait to see what you think of The Night Circus. I keep seeing everyone reading that one and think I should read it one day!

  10. Thanks to everyone for all the lovely comments. =O)
