Thoughts: I've been watching Alias instead... Whoops. That was my Friday, my Saturday was a little different: There was a minor matter of a storm, a falling tree and no electricity for the better part of the day, as well as getting to know my toilet better than I care to,  I also hit a sloooow part of my book and I felt like I was reading and reading and reading, but getting nowhere. '

I'm annoyed at myself for Friday, but fine with Saturday, there really were a lot of valid distractions.


  1. The Bone Clocks is on my TBR list. I'm looking forward to finding time to slot it into the schedule. I know the feeling that you're spending a lot of time reading and making no progress. I try to explain to non-readers that there are "fast" books and "slow" books, but they don't understand. In spite of your lack of attention to reading on Friday and Saturday, you've made quite a lot of progress throughout the read-a-thon with almost 700 pages read.

    1. Yes, one page in one book is not the same as one page in another, even if they were to have the same amount of words! I like The Bone Clocks so far though, it's just so long and slow.
