Easter read-a-thon – Sunday and Monday

Easter Read-a-thon with Nose in a book

As the long weekend approaches its end, I am sure you are all eager to know how my read-a-thon went for the past two days. Frankly, not as well as the first two days, at least if it’s number of books read that counts here.

On the other hand, I continued to have a good time and read more than doing anything else, so that’s a win as far as I’m concerned! I spent both days reading Dead Air by Iain Banks, which was a slower read than the other three I got through this weekend but still enjoyable. And when I finished it a couple of hours ago I decided it was time to stop and just think about (or start writing reviews of) those four books. And also spend some time with Tim who I’ve not seen much of this weekend despite us both being home! (He had a bunch of old friends visit. They took over the living room, I holed up in the library.)

I also squeezed in our usual pub quiz last night and more Easter chocolate than is healthy! I hope you have all had lovely weekends and found time to read some great books.

    I had a great time with the read-a-thon, such a great idea of yours! I’m still finishing my last book (number 4) but I will get it done before bedtime and then I’ve reached my goal exactly. My third book took much longer than I expected – like you (but it was a good read) and the fourth is quite quick and fun.

    Thanks for the ‘thon!

    I’ve had an AMAZING time. I’ve loved it, and although my count of books isn’t high it’s allowed me just have a jolly good bloody read.

    And it’s also got me (possibly) back in the habit of blogging a bit more regularly!

    Just need to do a round up of Sunday & Monday and then I really think I’m going to be tempted into doing some reviews – easy peasy because I’ll only have 2 to review!

    My plan for yesterday was to bust through the work I needed to do and spend the evening reading. My foggy brain had other plans. Oh well. Still got a nice chunk of reading done. Thanks for hosting!

    The Girl Yay, glad you enjoyed!

    Katherine Ah yes, I know about foggy brain. Glad you still managed to do some reading.
