A super fast readathon update!

A super fast readathon update before bed. This is the second update i’ve written or third if you count the book review I wrote this morning.

It appears I’ve read 689 pages today. Which completely boggles my mind.

Since last update I am now on page 260 something of Have His Carcass by Dorothy L Sayers. And am totally hooked into it. I plan to finish that tomorrow.

I listened to more of the Kafka on the Shore audio book while having my tea and sorting out the washing. In total I’ve listened to 1 hour 10 minutes of that.

And I read two old favourite books I kept from my childhood. The Hermit and The Bear by John Yeoman (112 pages) and Lightning Fred by Dick King Smith (48 pages). Both were as good as I remembered and The Hermit and The Bear still has the ability to make me laugh out loud.

Thanks for all the comments. They’re very useful and I hope to get round them properly tomorrow.

    I started Kafka on the Shore but couldn’t get into it. Perhaps I should try it as an audiobook. Murakami’s great, so I’m not blaming him.
    Happy reading!

    Sounds like you’ve had a great read-a-thon so far! So glad you could join us today, and remember, if you’re having fun, then you’re doing it right!
