#XmasReadathon Final Update

Currently Reading: A Touch of Dead
Number of Pages Read: 112
Books Read (number and titles): 1, Wrinkle In Time
Total pages read: 323

I've just spent the last couple hours reading in the bathtub. I finished 3 of the 5 stories in A Touch of Dead. They aren't that great, but I'll finish the book, since I've finished everything else in the Sookie Stackhouse series!

I'll be taking myself and my book to bed shortly. I am debating whether or not I should go to my family party tomorrow, since I'm so sick. It would suck to miss it, but I don't want to pass this horrible cold to everyone, and I doubt I'd be much fun. I guess we'll see how I feel in the morning.

Thanks to everyone who participated, I hope you enjoyed your books!

#XmasReadathon Update 3

Just finished listening to A Wrinkle In Time! Now I think I'm going to take a bath and start A Touch of Dead.

#XmasReadathon Update 2

I've been listening to A Wrinkle in Time on audiobook, read by the author, so I don't know what page I'm on, but I'm on audiobook chapter 6. I'm really enjoying this story again!

So far I've only heard from a few of us doing the readathon, @gretyfriend, @mossjon @lavender_lines & @lyndafern, but I know there are some others who are going to be trying to do a little reading today too :D

I feel a little better - can actually breathe through my nose right now, so I guess the NeoCitran helped. I'll be having more of it when I get stuffy again. Onward.

#XmasReadathon Update

Well, I'm really late for my own party. My cold kept me up late last night unable to breathe, so I slept in. It's not any better today, but I think I'm okay to read! I'll be starting with a story or two from A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris - short stories set in between the Sookie Stackhouse novels.

We've had some late joiners, so please checkout the #XmasReadathon hashtag on twitter (use search to find it). I'll post any new participant info when I get it :D

Actually, since I'm feeling so awful, I've decide to listen to an audiobook - A Wrinkle In Time by Madeline L'Engle. I read this series years and years ago, and loved it. But I don't remember much about it, so I'm looking forward to it!
