Here's where we will post what we are reading (or have read) during the ReadaThing, fun things about where we are reading or what we are eating/drinking while we read, etc. Also a place to ask each other questions about our books, etc.
I never posted a "what I plan to read" thread, so feel free to post that info here before you read.
Kickoff is in a few hours!!
And remember to note the times you read in the WIKI:
written by Canadian author Murray Pura .
Book 3 of The Danforths of Lancashire. Very well done Downton Abbeyish. Worth the read as I've completed first 2 in the series earlier...
I found the timezone converter helpful in deciding where I was at for beginning the Readathing tonite - started at 5 pm cst here on the Canadian prairies. Cuppa tea on the go :)
Those sound good.
I use this one to make the spreadsheets and check the timeline:
There's a world map at that site that is also useful.
But tomorrow I'll be doing a workshop all day, probably until 8 pm, so I doubt I'll manage any reading time (sigh). If I get some time on the way or in a break, I'll be reading Season of the Sun by Catherine Coulter - my current ebook (not bringing a physical book, I'll have enough to carry).
I read a bit early this morning with my tea, though I forgot to note the time (approx. 7:30-8:30am CST) so I'll leave it in the no-timeline category. I started Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard. I can't believe I've never read this book! Referenced in MANY other books I've read, so decided I should finally read it . . . marvelous descriptions of nature by someone curious enough to investigate the world around them and skillful enough to write about it.
How class you man? - as better than most,
Or, seeming better, worse beneath that cloak?
As saint or knave, pilgrim or hypocrite?
Nay, tell me how you class your wealth of books,
The derived relics of all time. As well
Sort them at once by size and livery:
Vellum, tall copies, and the common calf
Will hardly cover more diversity
Than all your labels cunningly devised
To class your unread authors.
I read on and off during the "official" Noon-4pm Readathon. I started the afternoon sitting in the sun in this spot in the dining room (in a rocking chair which is usually reserved for the cat).
Read more of Tales of Burning Love which I'm enjoying quite a bit.
Took breaks for lunch, a shower, and a nap . . . though I was "listening" to The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens during my nap, so kind of still reading :)
