A Winter’s Respite Read-a-Ton Starting Post and Updates

Posted January 21, 2013 by Whitney in read-a-thon / 4 Comments

A Winter’s Respite Read-a-Thon hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict starts today!  I woke up at 4:30 this morning and could not go back to bed.  So I got up, fed the cats and was back in bed with a book at 5.  Reading was just what I needed because after half an hour I was fast asleep.  I was fortunate enough to be able to sleep in until a quarter to eight and am officially starting the read-a-thon.

Reading Pool:
By the Shores of Silver Lake by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

    • I'm more than happy to be joining you! I've always thought diversity is the key to a successful readathon; if you get bored with your current read you have something else/difference waiting in the wings.

  1. Awww, it's been YEARS since I read any LIW! *pauses for a nostalgic moment* I'm hoping that I might be able to squeeze Great Expectations AND Edwin Drood in come February, but we shall see. Looking forward to catching up with you this week! 🙂
