Lazy Sunday Thoughts: After the Read-a-thon

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!


  1. Great stash you got there! Enjoy your Sunday!

  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.

  5. That's a terrific pile you found at the library sale!

  6. Lovely book finds--and congrats on your read-a-thon accomplishments. We are taking it real easy here today--

  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!
