Starburst balancing for beginners

The October Read-a-thon started at 1pm and it is gone 10pm and we don't really feel like we have read very much. It has been a long day and both Creaure and I had a little doze in the first hour of reading and then had to pop to the shop for snacks as we had not been very organised in advance, so all in all it's been a slow start. I have read 123 pages of 'Wuthering Heights' and Creature is on page 107 of 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', plus a few chapters of 'The Hobbit' while making the lemon cake.

I had never noticed but Starburst wrappers have silly suggestions printed on them, one of which is 'balance a starburst on each of your fingers' ... it's surprisingly difficult:-)
Other books in our TBR pile for this evening:
The Rehearsal by Eleanor Catton
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk
Runaway by Alice Munro
The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes

Hoping everyone else is having a great reading day.


  1. Wuthering Heights is one of my favorite books! Enjoy your reading and lemon cake!

  2. Lemon cake mmmm... I also feel like I'm not getting so far in my reading, but maybe we just don't realise how much dedication and time it takes to read a book. Wurthering Heights is great but not a quick beach read. Hope you enjoy the rest of the readathon


Thanks for stopping by. Thoughts, opinions and suggestions (reading or otherwise) always most welcome.
