B&DERM Second Wrap Up and Read-a-Thon Kickoff
I haven't been quite as successful as I would like so far in the Epic Review Month. But at least I'm making progress!
In the last week, I did finish The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (which was one of my April books), and I've read a good chunk of Jesus on Mars. This book's been kind of slow going. I'm enjoying it, but for some reason I fall asleep every time I pick it up. It's rather strange. But I still have another 6 books I'm hoping to read this month! So I'd better pick up the pace!
So on that note... it's time for the read-a-thon! The read-a-thon lasts all weekend (including today, Friday, but I'm at work for most of the day). My partner actually has a rare weekend off, so there will be bike riding and other fun things, but I'll make sure to fit some reading in there! He's a big reader too, so we often read together (but I annoy him because I interrupt his reading to tell him exciting things).
My goal for the read-a-thon is to finish Jesus on Mars, and read as much as possible of The Mummy. I know it doesn't seem like a very impressive goal, but The Mummy is big! Anne Rice books usually take me weeks to finish (though I'm really hoping to cut that time down so I can actually get to my review copies), so there's no way I could read one in a weekend. If I could read half of it, I'd be thrilled. So wish me luck!
I may also pop in on Twitter occasionally. The read-a-thon is using the #ERMreadathon tag if you want to join in!
