GREETINGS! TOMORROW IS DEWEY'S 24-HOUR READATHON! ARE YOU EXCITED?
I didn't make a "what I'm reading" post before this because I didn't want to change my mind five times.

- Tears of Pearl by Tasha Alexander-almost due back at library
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens-45 pages for school The Sound and The Fury by William Faulkner-60 pages for school
Greenwitch by Susan Cooper
- The Grey King by Susan Cooper
- Silver on the Tree by Susan Cooper
Hetalia Vol. 1
I will post my progress ON THIS POST. Everything else related to the read-a-thon will be on my twitter (@bahnree, request to follow). I will do a wrap-up post w/ any other thoughts on this blog probably on Sunday.
Good luck to all the other participants, and have fun! :D
Whoops slept in! I just started reading a bit before 8 Pacific time.
Book I'm currently reading: The Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea Campbell
Food consumed: Not yet! I'm BEHIND okay???
Quote for you: "She could, in fact, be completely naked and no one would ever know." (pg3)
I'm listening to: If I Had You by Adam Lambert
Hours since I woke up: 3
Pages read: 171
Food consumed: PANCAKES. And lemonade. My fave combo.
I'm still reading "Renegade X" and LOVING IT. It's hilarious and I want to cuddle the MC. :D It's really fun just waiting to see what he'll do next.
Location: My house, but I think I'm going to pack a bag and go to the library for a while.
Hours since I woke up: about 6
Pages read: 340
Books read: 1
Location: public library
I finished "Renegade X." It's fantastic and hilarious in every way and I wish that everyone who reads this would go out and buy a copy so she can write a sequel. :)
Now I'm going to read my assigned reading (from A Tale of Two Cities and The Sound and The Fury). Wish me luck! Thanks for all the comments/cheers so far!
Hours since I woke up: 9
Pages read: 445
Books read: 1, parts of 2 others
I read my assigned chunks of Dickens and Faulkner. Darnay just left for France, like a moron, and Jason is a d***. XD
ON TO A FATAL WALTZ! I also have couple of volumes of manga I might treat myself to. ;)
Pages read: 596 +144 manga
Books read: 2, parts of 3 others
A Fatal Waltz isn't going quite as speedily as I could wish, so I think I'm going to take a break and read some Greenwitch or possibly How to Ride a Dragon's Storm by Cressida Cowell. I'm a little tired, but I'm going to make some coffee I think. Only seven more hours! I must be productive.
Pages read: 761
Books read: 4, parts of 3 others
I forgot to mention last time that the manga I read was Hetalia vol 1. It was delicious in every way. I was also very amused to see that it was rated "Older Teen" for, among other things, "Mild Fanservice."
Then I read A Fatal Waltz where part of the mystery involved a scandal featuring "deviants." As one does in Victorian England. Finished that one, as well as Greenwitch. Settling into The Grey King now.
I am tired.
