End of the Year Readathon: Starting Off

Woohoo today is the first day of the End of the Year Readathon hosted by Juliababyjen's Reading Room and Dana Square! Because I work Mondays I have a 1.5 hour commute on the bus each way, I've spent approximately 3.5 hours (including lunch break) reading today, which is a pretty good start and probably the most by miles I'll read this week, although I am at work again Thursday so we shall see! Because of the epic commute I've already ticked off one of the books from the pile I posted in my sign up, which I'm pretty excited about, and it was really good :-) 

Monday Stats: (entirely copied from Ellie! Sorry!)
Books I've read from:  A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan
Pages read today:  326
Books finished today:  Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan
Running total: 1 book; 326 pages

I will probably add my daily stats to this post for the first few days at least to stop there being a million readathon posts and to free up space for review posts should I choose to write them! 


  1. The upside of long commutes is the reading time, though I can't always read on a bus. My work is just a 15-minute walk from my house; I have been known to read on the way in, but it's probably not to be recommended. What did you think of the Will Graysons? I loved that book; it's such a feel-good story.

  2. I love John Green's books! Great job so far on your reading!

  3. Copy away, my darling! It just covers all the stats that work for me, and I probably nicked it from another readathon years ago anyway! :D

    326 pages is an epic start, nice going! Thanks to work and grandparental visitation and lack of sleep and Christmas playlist compiling and also possibly a bit of Homeland watching, I read... 17 pages. Just to make you feel excellent about yourself right now. How are you liking WG,WG? It's in one of my boxes somewhere!
