Read-a-thon - the home strait

It is now 10am and huge thanks to everyone who joined in with the Book Balancing challenge, we will contact the winner asap. 

I have finished 'The Innocents' by Francesca Segal  - 357 pages
Monkey is on 349 of 'Cell' and has read all 289 pages of 'Silver Linings Playbook' by Matthew Quick.

I am moving on to 'Broken Verses' by Kamila Shamsie.
In the meantime we have done more challenges.
The Book Jenga Challenge is on at Curiosity Killed the Bookworm, and here is our stack:

 And then incorporating two challenges into one activity here is Monkey participating in the 3-2-1 Action Challenge over at Vonnie's Reading Corner, where you are asked to act out a scene from the book you are reading. Here Monkey is being a plane crash that occurs right back at the beginning of 'Cell' by Stephen King.

We might pop back later if the last few challenges sound fun.
12.30pm The Books Around the World challenge is going on at Esther's Ever After til 1pm. My list is taken from my book review page:
A Pale View of the hills by Kazuo Ishiguro - Asia 
Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngosi Adichie - Africa 
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy - Europe 
A Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier - Antarctica 
Galapagos by Kurt Vonnegut - South America


  1. We can do it, we can do it
    We can read a lot of books
    We can make it through the readathon
    It’s easy peasy, really

  2. Tick-Tack.. Tick-Tack.. Tick-Tack..

    Time is slowly moving
    Soon it will be gone
    But memories will stay
    After readathon is done

    Hang in there.. 2 hours to go!!

  3. That last photo... that's how I feel now with 2 hrs remaining! :)

  4. I've seen a couple of blogs taking part in this reading challenge and it looks like loads of fun. I'll have to watch out if it's done again in the future and take part myself!

  5. Hahaha! I love your plane crash!!! Very creative! Thank you for participating. You did a great job!

  6. You all are silly. ;-) Hope you had fun and that you're finally getting your sleep.


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