Read-a-thon Update

Hahaha...ok well I think I pretty much failed at this one. That's ok though, I had fun :)

I got up, got ready and took the subway and read down to West 79th Street and sat outside in the sun and drank coffee at a place called French Roast. But then as I sat down my husband texted me and said he's done with work (yeah, poor guy has to go in on Saturday's too!) and joined me. So I didn't get as much reading done as I thought. But I did try.

I read while waiting for hubby to try on jeans at Filene's Basement. Read while waiting for the subway (which was really late and really packed). Was going to read on the subway home but it was so packed I couldn't even open the book I was crammed in like a sardine.

I read at home some and then while cooking up bread battered chicken fingers and mushroom rice. And then I failed...was reading while sitting on the couch while hubby was watching football and got engrossed in the Texas/Missouri game. Did anyone see that?

So progress?

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan - Halfway through
The Golden Compass - page 111

Sigh...ok. But I really enjoyed reading all your posts and comments. I'm still catching up. How did you all do? Maybe next year I'll just be a cheerleader (unless hubby's out of town) :)


  1. Hey, there's always the next one, right? I'm hoping to be a reader for the next one. Everyone did great. :)

  2. Glad you had fun anyway! It's hard to devote an entire 24 hours to just reading and blogging--I know my husband was a little restless while I was doing my thing and he finally just went out with friends.

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  3. Hey as long as you had fun that's all that matters!

  4. Like everyone else said, what matters is that you had fun! And there's always next time :)

  5. Hey, you still did ok considering. And having fun is the main point. :)

  6. I am feeling much better today thanks. I love reading your posts. It's so much fun to read about places and know where they are.
