Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...



Attention All Challengers! S0....life here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon: Wrap-up




I had signed up for the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon running from August 22-28 and hosted by On a Bookbender. I listed my planned reading on my official starting line post. I wanted to knock out at least six books. On that count, I succeeded! Six books read!

Here was my planned reading:
1. Shatterday by Harlan Ellison (classic SF from the 70s)
2. Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
3. Lucky Jim by Kinglsey Amis
4. The Arrow by Christopher Morley
5. Middlemarch by George Eliot (if I'm brave enough)
6. Parnassas on Wheels by Christopher Morley

And here is what I actually got done:
1. Shatterday by Harlan Ellison (8/23/11) [318 pages]
2. Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon (8/24/11) [286 pages]
3. The Arrow by Christopher Morley (8/25/11) [85 pages]
4. The Name on the Bracelet by Margaret Sutton (8/27/11) [216 pages]
5. Lord Peter Views the Body by Dorothy L Sayers (8/28/11) [253 pages]
6. DeKok & Murder on Blood Mountain by A C Baantjer (8/28/11) [189 pages]

Plus:
I finished 89 pages of Middlemarch by George Eliot.

Total page count: 1436

Great job on reading 6 books for the Read-a-Thon. I'm impressed. Its funny how you strayed from your planned reading list, isn't it funny how that always seems to happen.

Here's mine:
