Super Book Password

Noah and John are the winners in the the third round of Super Book Password. Noah correctly guessed my first Movie Title ("Bringing Up Baby") and John has snagged the points on the second ("Around the World in 80 Days"). Next week will bring a new Password Category: Musical Group.

High Summer Read-a-Thon: Wrap-up

Michelle from The True Book Addict hosted one of her seasonal read-a-thons this past weekend.  Her read-a-thons a great because no pressure, no challenges and read as much as you want to.   And it's a good thing there was no pressure--because I didn't read near the amount I planned.  I'd hoped to finish at least four books (but really wanted to complete 5 or 6), but that just simply didn't happen.  We'll see if I can do any better come fall....



Here's the final tally:

1. North & South by Elizabeth Gaskell: begun 7/16 (finisehd 7/18/12) [451 pages]
2. The Four Million & Other Stories by O. Henry: begun 7/18 (finished 7/21/12) [189 pages]
3.The Fifth Man by Manning Coles: begun 7/21/12 (finished 7/21/12) [190 pages

Hey, you did great! Classics are slower reads too. I was reading Anna Karenina and I certainly didn't get very far!

Thank you for joining me and I hope you will be with us again for FrightFall in October.
