Book Drunkard

“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

Day 2 – Book Drunkard Week Long Read-a-Thon

4 Comments


KAY CRAIN-002I didn’t get as much read yesterday as I wanted to – I was so exhausted after cleaning the house and cooking dinner for company that I fell asleep at 8 pm.  So, I only read half of my goal.

Today I plan on doing much better.  Thankfully, the book I decided to read first is amazing so far and I get the feeling it’ll be hard to put down today.  So, barring anything unknown jumping into my schedule today, I should be able to make up some pages today.

How is everyone else doing with their goals?  Anyone finish a book yet?

  1. I was hoping to get offered this one, but nope. I loved her other work, it had me crying. So I guess I’ll get this from the library once I finish the 500+ from my own library. bwahahaha

  2. I’m actually nearly finished my audiobook, RED RAIN! The commute to work was slow-moving today with freezing rain/ice, so I had lots of time 🙂

  3. Yesterday I finished the two books I was already midway through when the read-a-thon started – I didn’t have that far to go with either of them, but I was grateful for the little extra push to get to the end! Today I’ve started new books for day three – ‘Desperate Romantics’ by Franny Moyle, about the Pre-Raphaelites, and ‘Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares’, to inject a little festivity into my December. It’s my day off, but I’m a bit headachy and I’ve had a few errands to run as well, so I’m not sure topple THAT many pages – but as always, a read-a-thon is always a good reminder to keep drifting back to my book for a page or ten!
    My day 2 update is on my read-a-thon post:
