Lazy Sunday Thoughts: After the Read-a-thon

Pin It

So yeah, I didn't make it through the whole 24 hours of the Read-a-thon. Quelle surprise. I started watching North by Northwest with some Twitter people and after 2 hours thought, "Hell, this is a long movie. I'm going to bed." I couldn't drag myself out of bed this morning to read anymore either.

So my reading stands at 2 books read (half a graphic novel).

I did want to tell you that I bought some books at the library sale.


Our Village by Mary Russell Mitford
To the Lighthouse Virginia Woolf
The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
A Room with a View by E.M. Forster
The Reverse of the Medal by Patrick O'Brian

That's it for me. Peace out!

  2. Some great choices there, I loved Remains of the Day, and To the Lighthouse is a real classic.

  3. 2 books in one day is pretty darn good, if you ask me!

  4. I didn't make any serious goals this year, so I was pleased with my 4 books read.

  7. I'm jealous of your buys! You've made me want to rewatch North by Northwest-- just not when I'm too tired!

  8. I didn't see North by Northwest until some time last year - terrific movie, but you do have to be pretty alert and attentive (i.e. not tired) when you watch it!

    I made it through two books during Readathon too - I'd hoped for a little more, but I really liked them both, so it's not too bad.

  9. I made it through 18 hours, but I couldn't make it any farther. You did great!
