Readathon/It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

From Dusk to Dawn Readathon Wrapup
Wednesday: I started out strong with 5 hours of reading and I read Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins and Forget You by Jennifer Echols.
Thursday: Not as good, I read for 2.5 hours finishing Linger by Maggie Stiefvater and reading about 30 pages of The Iron King by Julie Kagawa.
Friday: I stayed on twitter for about an hour, which slowed my reading pace considerably.  Still I finished The Iron King and Winter's Passage, an Iron King novella, in about 3 hours.  Then I spent an hour reading Daddy's Delight by Karia Bunting.
Saturday: Spent 1.5 hours reading Everlasting; Then I took a break to watch Lie to Me because hulu was mean to me earlier.  I also took another hour to finish Daddy's Delight.

Total hours spent reading: 14 hours (I really should have spent more time but I was so tired because I was working all day)
Total pages read: 2016
Total books finished: 7 (or maybe more like 6.5)
I think I read so quickly because I was reading YA; I had the hardest time reading Daddy's Delight because it was an ebook with a weird font.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
One Day by David Nicholls
Week 2 of Bleak House Readalong

Currently Reading:
Bleak House by Dickens
Passion by Jude Morgan (one of my favorite authors)

See other Monday Reading links at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.


  1. I'm impressed at how much time you spent reading this week - I wish I could manage to fit that amount in my working week. One Day sounds really good, it's on my wishlist - enjoy!

  2. I adored Bleakhouse as well as The Book Thief. Have a splendid week reading. My Monday is located here:

  3. You did do well in the readathon. Jude Morgan is one of my favourite authors too and I loved Passion.

    Have a great reading week!

  4. I cant wait to be a part of the October Readathon. How fun and I was bummed to have missed out on this one. Looks like you did really well!

    I look forward to your reviews on Mockingjay and The Book Thief.

  5. You did better than I would have with the dusk to dawn read a thon. When I get home from work I am usually in a vegetative state, where TV is about the only thing I can accomplish before bed.

    Loved The Book Thief hope you enjoy it. Have a great week.

  6. I think you did really well, and I know exactly what you mean about the font, recently read a book with not only a smaller font, but it had extra curlicues on some of the letters and really slowed me down.


  7. I'm a new follower. I got a lot of reading done but this week I have to hit the text books. Here's what I'm reading this week.

  8. I was so lame last week that I only read one book because of so much work but I'm such a slow reader anyway. :) This week I'll be reading the Millennium series since I received it as a gift. I do want to read the hunger series since I've been hearing a lot of good feedbacks lately. Newest follower. :) have a great week.
