2. Go back to your blog, and give us a list of your top favorite rereads of all time. You know, those books that you can go to time and time again for comfort and escape. Again, pictures are always good but not required.
The first answer that came to mind for this one is The Princess Bride by William Goldman. I’ve seen the movie too many times to count, and read the book now four times. Each time it thrills me more and more and gives me a different, but still satisfying, feeling. There really isn’t another book quite like it.
Total Time Spent Reading: 5 hours
Mini-challenges completed: 4
Food/drink consumed: Parents lunch at school, chips and dip, chex mix
Other Activities: Homework, homework, practicing piano, homework
Mentality: Very, very sleepy – must keep going!
Erin of Erin Reads is hosting the next challenge, which is a hodgepodge! Giving this a go:
Colbey Chevy, a professional scuba-diver, is on a mission, to find the lost treasure of Elentra. But tragedy struck down his partner last year off the shore of Spain, the spot they were certain housed the treasures. Will he be able to face the demons, both real and fictional lurking beneath the waters?
Just a quick update before I shower and head off to school for parent’s day… I’ve finished Practical Jean – the first book on my TBR list! That’s 290 pages out of a goal of 1500. Not too shabby! I’ll be back later today with some more updates!
I’m going to try my best to get through the Read-A-Thon this weekend, because I have a LOT of books to get read. That said, I still have homework and school events.. so my updating may be a little sporatic! First of all, my answers for hour #1!
1)Where are you reading from today?
My list of books includes:
Practical Jean by Trevor Cole
Child of Thunder by Mickey Zucker Reichert
Cinder and Ella by Melissa Lemon
Domestic Violets by Matthew Norman
Becoming Marie Antoinette by Juliet Grey
2)Three random facts about me…
This semester I’m playing Bach, Chopin and Mozart for my piano juries.
I love mixing cottage cheese and applesauce together. Mmm.
I randomly have dreams that people come and steal my books off my shelves (ack!).
3)How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?
4)Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?
I want to hit 1500 pages. Let’s see if I can do it.
5)If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, any advice for people doing this for the first time?
Take time to rest your eyes, listen to an audiobook while you go for a walk, make sure you hydrate!
