Read-a-Thon ~ Finished a Book!

Photobucket

YaY! I finished Empire Falls, finally! I’ll blog a review on it tomorrow or Monday, and keep reading today. After finishing, I grabbed a toasted cheese sandwich and a cup of coffee. Then I picked up my half-read copy of How to Be a Villian: Evil Laughs, Secret Lairs, Master Plans and More!!! by Neil Zawacki. I was on page 82 when I started, and am now on page 88, “Locations for Your Lair: corporate tower” section.

Right now, while I’ve got all three kids, we’re going to read the next chapter in The Magician’s Nephew by C. S. Lewis. I’ve been reading (or trying to read) a chapter a day with them. Digory and Polly have just sorted out the rings, yellow rings bringing them into the Wood Between the Worlds, and the green ones allowing them to get to the other worlds in the pools.

I’ll prob go to the library (over due DVD finally found) and grab a lunch on the way back (as well as dinner to go) around 11, so I probably won’t post again until noon.

Reading Progress Tracked:
Empire Falls by Richard Russo ~ finished
How to Be a Villian: Evil Laughs, Secret Lairs, Master Plans and More!!! by Neil Zawacki ~ page 88 out of 160 pages
The Magician’s Nephew by C. S. Lewis ~ page 45, chapter 4 “The Bell and Hammer”

Read-A-Thon: Slogging along…

Photobucket

Arguments quelled and quieted for the moment… after meds have been given, I might add. Apparently, Sam only had about 10 minutes left in the movie when Gwen demanded her give her back the player. I can sympathize, it would piss me off, too, but it’s all working to convince me to buy those TVs for their rooms.

Part of Sam’s appeasement is that I told her she could have an hour on the computer after I write this post.

Reading Update: I’m on page 479 in Empire Falls, with 4 more pages to go.

Is this my hour 1 or hour 2 post? Do we count the hour at the beginning or the end of the hour?

Read-a-Thon: First Post!

Photobucket
Good morning, everyone 🙂  This is my first post of my first read-a-thon… YaY!

I’m starting out where I left off last night in Empire Falls, a book I really do like, but it seems like I’m never going to finish…

ever.

So Hour One: Sam, 16, and Gwen, 14, are fighting like cats and dogs. Gwen wanted her DVD player back so she can watch something and demanded Sam give it back. Now Sam is yelling “Shut up!” at her and throwing plastic eggs, while Gwen is bawling loudly. I sooOOoo want TVs for each of their rooms! *sigh* It’s going to be a fun reading day. Sam’ll be going to her friend’s house in a couple hours, and spending the night there. YaY!

K.. as to reading: I’m on page #467 in Empire Falls, 16 pages to go.

see ya at 9!
