Read-a-Thon Update: Hour 9

Well, halfway through Hour 9, anyway! How is everyone holding up? It’s 9:30 here, so I’m well into the evening, but I’ve finished my third full book now and I’m just set to choose a fourth. So far I’ve read For the King by Catherine Delors, A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris, and now Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn. I also finished the book I was reading previously, Miles in Love by Lois McMaster Bujold. The Julia Quinn was probably my least favorite – but with huge words and not-so-many pages, it went by quickly, and kept me amused.

Here are the stats:

Number of Books 4
Pages Read 1062
Time Spent Reading 7:07
Time Spent Blogging 1:05

I will remind you that of the books I’ve read, the pages were small and the font generally large, so I really don’t read THAT fast in real life. But right now it looks like my four book goal is perfectly achievable, as I’m just choosing that one out of my shrinking stack. Mainly I think it’s time for a change of pace with After the Golden Age by Carrie Vaughn.

Also, because the Read-a-thon is all about the food, here’s something I wish I was eating right now:

Fresh buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, and olive oil on a crispy crust, baked in a wood-fired oven. I’ll be missing Rome’s pizzas for some time to come, and I wish I had one now to keep me going!

How is everyone else doing?
