Read-a-thon Hour 3

I'm going slower than I thought!

Books Read: I finished Bel Canto by Ann Pratchett
Pages read in total: 149
Time spent reading 2 1/2 hours

I started with a book that I was half way through and wanted to complete for my own Latin American challenge. The language in this book just grabbed me and needed to be read slowly to be really appreciated. I'll definately post a review on this book later in the week as it was fantastic.

Intoduction Meme: (find it here)
Where are you reading from today?
I'm on my couch in the surprisingly sunny (its rained and been horrid and grey for the last week or so) England. Oh, and the neighbour has decided to bang and drill for the last 2 hours to accompany my reading...

3 facts about me …

- I have a house rabbit, who decided that she wanted lots of attention in the first hour
- I teach English in a high school
- my favorite read is Possession: A Love Story be AS Byatt

How many books do you have in your TBR pile for the next 24 hours?

I have 9 novels and 12 books in total

Do you have any goals for the read-a-thon (i.e. number of books, number of pages, number of hours, or number of comments on blogs)?

Hopefully 4 - 5 books and 18 - 20 hours

If you’re a veteran read-a-thoner, Any advice for people doing this for the first time?

I'm a first timer

I'm going to flick through my google reader than I'm off to read What I Was by Meg Rosoff

Yay to another English teacher!!! I also teach high school English, which is actually one reason I couldn't join today. :( I have a stack of AP Literature papers to get through this weekend and a family gathering tonight. The two kept me from joining the readathon this year. Good luck today, and I'll stop back by later!

Did you like Bel Canto? I've had that on my TBR for ages!

Yeah, I was really surprised (still am, actually) at how fast the time goes (and how slow the pages).

Happy reading! And congrats on your win.

I loved Bel Canto. And can't believe I won a prize!

I couldn't get into Bel Canto. I'll be interested to hear what you think.
