ETA - oh, maybe our theme is Anniversary or First Birthday?
ejj1955 - I fixed the link to your profile - I hope that's OK; if not I'll remove it.
No - not sure...I just added the URL to link with your usename. :)
Morphidae - what exactly is it doing? It might be worth bugging it if you can't convince it to let you enter stuff. Can you edit other pages?
For the moment I've set myself as admin, but I'm really hopeful we'll be able to get multiple admins up and running very soon.
Anyway, let me know if you all want to decide on a theme or whatever, otherwise we'll just run with it as a readathon and start spreading the news!
Thank you for setting those up!
I like your theme ideas. Maybe we could add "one" or "first" to make it a little more broad?
Me; I'm for 'Don't get the chocolate on the book readathing!"
At first when I asked her, she thought I meant we had to go to the local library to read. Then I explained that, no, we could read at home, but we were promising that we would read at a specific time & for an hour, she was fine with it.
She didn't quite get it at first, but more reading?? always good for it!
I'll be reading C. S. Harris' book, Where Shadows Dance.
90% of the time I do a Wiki edit, I put it in, look at the preview, go back and try a few changes, look at the preview...pretty much the way I do any Talk post that has HTML in it, though we don't have preview, yet. Cut-and-try - as long as you don't delete other people's entries, you can't do damage, and even if you do you or someone can revert the page to before your changes (it remembers everything from the start). Have fun!
It's almost 11pm here. Everyone else is asleep and the house is quiet. I'm reading in bed and once my hour is up it's off to sleep for me as well. I'll check back in the morning. Night everyone.
Now I am going over my allocated hour and reading Already Dead - which is quite fun also.
#43: I have The Janissary Tree on my TBR - bodes well from your comment tardis.
If any of you guys haven't read Life of Pi, I would seriously recommend it. I'm about half way through and it is incredible.
I agree. I read the Life of Pi many years ago, and thought it was great; what a great book to select for the readathing! I have it in my library as a re-read and I am looking forward to reading it once again.
La Couleur des rêves (The Colour in English) by Rose Tremain; Mini-Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella and Journal d'Hirondelle by Amélie Nothomb.
I've also read a couple of essays from Double Lives: writing and motherhood
No, it's just being stubborn - the correct book doesn't even show up on (others). To force a touchstone, go find the book (search in another tab), get the work number, then put that in the brackets followed by double colons and the title.

The Dawn Country
Misc. details: I started a few minutes late because my tea was still brewing :) I read in my every morning reading spot, "The Field of Dreams Reading Lounge", which can be seen at:
My cat accompanied me for about 20 minutes, then got bored and went to warm herself on the heat vent.
Wish I could attempt more of the do nothing but read day, but it ain't happening this weekend.
Have a good holiday weekend.
I also read a short story by Joyce Marshall in Any Time at All and Other Stories.
I've read for 7.5 hours today. My brain is feeling cottony. I need a good mystery to keep going so I'm starting La voleuse de livres by Marcus Zusak (The Book Thief)
I am enjoying C.S. Harris' most recent book Where Shadows Dance. I've read the previous books in the series & am really enjoying this one. When I'm done checking in here, I'm returning to the book.
My mother is reading The Garden of Betrayal by Lee Vance. She is enjoying it, but is getting the feeling that she read it before. We are wondering if she did read it before or what the similar book is that this book is reminding her of.
Happy reading everyone!
I read Death at Epsom Downs by Robin Paige as I am working through the series right now. This kind of got me in the mood to do some more reading tonight. Off to get in a few more chapters before bed.
