Bout of Books Update

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th in whatever time zone you are in. Each day there are challenges for those who signed up by Tuesday and we are called on to do an update.

Here's my progress update for Friday and Saturday, August 23-4: whole read-a-thon train got derailed.  I had to make a weekend run up to my parents house and my car died and they had to bring me back home so I can be at work tomorrow morning.  Which means I got very little reading done.  My intentions were to listen to a book on tape while traveling up and back (half-way accomplished) and to read my physical book-in-progress after the parents had gone to bed (I'm a night-owl; they're not).  That so did not happen.  So--as of Saturday night, here are the stats....

Books finished:
Andersen's Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen  (343 pages)
The Door by Mary Roberts Rinehart (381 pages)

Currently Reading:
Poems and Prose by Christina Rossetti (232 pages so far--all progress on Friday before I left)
Death at the Bar by Ngaio Marsh (We'll call it about 90 pages--my husband, the math-whiz, figured up how many pages = how many tapes I managed to listen to)

I was really hoping to have one if not both of these done by now....but it's not looking good.
