Bout of Books


This is a sticky post and if you want updates, please scroll down.  Thank you.

My Goals
  • to get Les Miserables started and read at least the first 25 pages
  • to get most of The Scarlet Letter completed
  • to read A Midsummer's Night's Dream
  • to complete at least two of the books that I have been reading since 2011
  • to complete HP and the Deathly Hallows
  • to start Anna Karenina and complete the first section
  • to get half of The Help completed by Sunday
  • complete The Great Gatsby and post my answers to the questions posted here.

Books To Read

  • The Scarlet Letter
  • A Midsummer's Night's Dream
  • Les Miserables
  • The Great Gatsby
  • The Help
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
  • Anna Karenina


Monday: Didn't read much; read maybe about 40 pages.  I read a couple of chapters out of Harry Potter and read a chapter out of The Scarlet Letter and that was it.  I was just a little too jumpy.  Hopefully I can get some more of the of the other books read as well.

Tuesday: Read a lot more today, as I read a bunch out of HP and The Great Gatsby.  I also managed to read a little out of The Gift, which I realize I don't have on the list, but whatever.   I was away for the evening and therefore didn't read as much as I would have liked, but I am hoping that I can read more tomorrow evening and get a few more books read during the evening hours.

Thursday: Sorry for no update yesterday; I spent the evening reading and by the time I remembered, I was ready for bed.  Anyways,  over the past twenty-four hours I have read quite a bit off the list of books to be read and have actually completed the first of the goals that I stated above and I was also able to read Midsummer Night's Dream. I also posted the answers to the questions that were posted for the Gatsby readalong from last week, but have only completed a third of the book.   While I feel a little bit behind, I know that I have until Sunday to get them completed and its quite possible I will be reading for most of the weekend anyways, so I still think the To Do list is quite manageable.  Hope you have a good Friday and I hope to update you in about 24 hours.

Are you enjoying The Scarlet Letter? We have it as our February book club book and I had never heard of it before it before now!...a bit embarrassing I know :)

Great goals for the readathon! I have Anna Karenina, but I'm not sure when I'll feel ambitious enough to read it. :) Good luck!

Congratulations on starting Les Miz! I'm hoping to read that before the end of the year - my 14 year old cousin is actually telling me I must! Imagine that!
Good luck with the rest of the weekend for the read-a-thon!
