2nd Annual Classics Club Readathon

Saturday, January 4, 2014

Today is the 2nd Annual Classics Club Readathon. I will be reading on and off as much as I can and updating my progress here. Below are my answers to the kick-off prompt and my reading stats which I will update throughout the day.  

You can get the details of the readathon here. Happy reading everyone! 

**UPDATED AT 12AM EST*** I'm back and curled up with the super creepy Talented Mr. Ripley. I'll keep going until I fall asleep!

5PM - I'll be gone for a few hours to go to dinner and a Shakespeare play with a friend. I'll update my post when I'm back!

Currently Reading: Slouching Toward Bethlehem by Joan Didion and Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut
Pages Read: 1,037
Books Read: 3, The Subterraneans by Jack Kerouac, Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick, Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman
Name and Blog: Melissa, Avid Reader's Musings
Snacks and Beverages of Choice: Coffee, almond joys, grapes, chips and guacamole. 
Where are you reading from today? Indianapolis, IN
What are your goals for the Readathon? I want to get through at least one or two books and put a dent in a few short story collections that have been on my shelf.
What book(s) are you planning on reading?  I'm going to be picking books from the stack in the picture above. I know I won't get to them all, but I've got a good variety to choose from.
Are you excited? Of course! I love having some specific time carved out for reading.

Looks like a good stack to choose from. I do have a doggie who has taken over my reading spot! ;)

I'm neglecting The Classics Club so bad. Sad.

Go you! I've been using #CCReadathon for inspiration today and have blown through the better part of 100 pages of The Woman in White. It requires at least a bit of concentration, so I'm pretty happy with that.

I wish I could have had a readathon! Instead we played Cards Against Humanity... I suppose I shouldn't complain it was a lot of fun!

wordhits - Dogs make such great cuddle buddies.

Suey - That's a great goal for 2014, embrace the classics!

Andi - You are rocking the Wilkie! I love Marian from The Woman in White so much!

Kailana - That game is so much fun and so wrong all at the same time.
