I decided to read a bit of this before getting back to my more serious book. It’s hilarious and I’m only a few chapters in 😅

Current Book: The Secret Chord by Geraldine Brooks
Pages Read: 100 pages (200)

I’m taking a little breather now. I’ve only got 2/3 of my book read in just over 7 hours. I know I’m a slow reader, so this is no surprise. But it’s a little disheartening, if I’m being honest. I almost dosed off a couple times within the last hour, so I’m hoping a snack and some blogging (or just any change of pace) will shake me out of it. I’m going to write a post now addressing one of the Mini-Challenges for the readathon 😊

I’m going to take a tiny break again now, just like the last time I updated. I’m going to eat lunch and go to the bathroom. Then I’ll get right back to it. I’m really enjoying this book so far–I don’t know if I’ll need a break from it or not, but I’m content with it for the time being.

Dewey Readathon 2012 {1}

I slept in today, so I’ve actually only been reading for a couple of hours as of now. And I thought I’d update now, as I’m taking a short break to eat my lunch. I finally got past the boring beginning of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The House of Seven Gables. I was honestly about ready to give it up. As I’ve said in the past, I don’t like books that go such a long time without any dialogue between characters. This took about 40 pages to get into the better part–I say better because it is not great by any means. But at least it’s better. I think I will end up liking it, but I have about 300 pages to read and I don’t know if I will even finish it today!
