Hours 16-24

Since last update:

Kid Gloves - 100 pgs
The House of Broken Angels - 28 pgs (audio)
My Sister, the Serial Killer - 9 pgs

Final total, pages: 545
Final total, hours: 9 hr 22 min (7 hr 10 min reading, 2 hr 12 min listening)

Not bad, although I would have liked to have a higher page total. The time I spent updating on Goodreads and Litsy took time away from reading, but it was worth it. The social media aspect is part of the fun. Can't wait to do it again!

Getting to Know You Survey

1)What fine part of the world are you reading from today? Utah
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? Can't pick just one. They all look great. 
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? I have a dental issue and am going to stick with soft foods today, so think I may have to send the hubs out to fetch ice cream!
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I am known amongst my friends as a huge "book nerd" :)
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? I would just like to read more pages than I usually do; otherwise, everything the same.

Dewey's Readathon April 6, 2019

It's almost time! I can't wait to devote a whole day/night to reading. Back in a few days with the stack...

ETA 4/5:  and here it is! (I'll be reading these tomorrow and beyond...)

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe (on Kindle) by Agatha Christie - Because it's tradition to have a Christie in my stack).
The Clue of the Broken Locket by Carolyn Keene - Ditto for Nancy Drew (fodder for the wee hours).
The Enchanted Castle by E. Nesbit - A children's classic I've been meaning to get to for a long time.
Kid Gloves by Lucy Knisley - Graphic for variety.
So Lucky by Nicola Griffith - From The Tournament of Books 2019 short list, sort of my "theme" this RAT.
My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite - ToB 2019.
Paris for One by JoJo Moyes - Short stories, again for variety.
The Friend by Sigrid Nunez - ToB, summer 2018.
There There by Tommy Orange - ToB 2019.
Washington Black by Esi Edugyan - ToB 2019.
The Overstory by Richard Powers - ToB 2019, currently in progress. I may or may not get to this tomorrow. It's kind of nice to "start fresh".
The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea - Ditto.
