3:00 (almost) update.

Kristin Lavransdatter was a wonderful, beautiful, perfect book to read this morning. I just finished it a bit, and if it's not on your TBR list, you should think of putting it there. I really enjoyed it. Now onwards! I've now read for 7 hours and 10 minutes, and have read 291 pages. Next, I'm going to read Silence - it's an epic poem, so the reading might slow down, a bit, but I'm looking forward to it AND I promised it to Ms Eva when I finished it, so I need to read it. If you've never heard of it (I only came across it by accident) look up the synop on Wikipedia, it's a FASCINATING find. I hope it turns out good, now!

An epic poem sounds really interesting. I hope you will be posting about it later when you have time!

Hope all is going well now that we are into the 9th hour of the Read-a-Thon :) This is Louise cheering from Copenhagen, Denmark...

Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
May all the books appeal.
May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

Good luck today!

Yay! Read! Read! Read! ;)

And your collection made me go "awwwww" out loud. So adorable.

I really do wish a wonderful readathon day, Jason!
I really enjoyed Death's sentiments today as well. I always do look forward to your vlog's.

You've more than sold me, Jason. I'll read it for sure.

Nice to hear! Looking forward to reading Kristin L after the readathon. I've a whole week to devote to it.

I wish we could use Kristin for our library classic book group. . . don't think we have enough copies in the system. It's on my to-read list. Happy reading!
