Brief readathon update!

Written by Kirsten on October 24th, 2009


OK, we’re entering the sixth hour, and I am feeling like a SLACKER! I’ve finished E. L. Konigsburg’s From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, started Stephen Lawton’s Hood but ditched it after four chapters because it just felt too historical-fiction-y for me (I have a desperately hard time keeping track of all those rulers and lands and alliances), and am beginning The Time Travelers by Linda Buckley-Archer. I also have The Time Thief if this proves to be a winner.

Would love to hear anyone else’s progress – drop a link to your own update post here, or come follow me on Twitter – – and I’ll follow ya back to keep up :) Happy reading, everyone, and thank you so much to the hosts and cheerleaders; you all are making this so much fun!

    I don’t think Hood would be a very good read-a-thon book, anyways. It is a bit too heavy. Good luck on your reading!

  2. Kirsten says:

    Yeah, it wouldn’t have been on the list if I’d been in my own place with my billions of TBR books, but I’m working with what I’ve got today :) Thank you!!!

  3. Trish says:

    The benefit of having a big stack is being able to discard for another one–sometimes the book just isn’t right.

    You’re doing great!!

  4. Kirsten says:

    Thanks, Trish! Wow, I’ve been in awe with every post of yours that hits my feed reader; you are a readathon pro! I’ll definitely be taking notes for next time around :)

  5. Valerie says:

    You are actually making good progress! have fun with the rest of the read-a-thon!

  6. Aarti says:

    I read the Mixed-Up Files WAY back in grade school, I think, and now I want a re-read! Thanks for jogging my memory :-)

  7. Kirsten says:

    Thanks, Valerie! Bird by Bird is on my TBR shelves at home; great choice for today!

  8. Kirsten says:

    Aarti, I read it for the first time just a couple of years ago; it’s such a fun read! Glad to have reminded you of it :)

  9. Lenore says:

    Sounds like you are doing well to me! Keep it up!
