Read-a-thon: Hour 2



Books Read this Hour: Faerie Tale by Raymond E. Feist
Pages Read This Hour: 10
Total Pages Read: 10
Books Completed: Ha!
Mini-Challenges Participated In: None
Time Spent Reading this Hour: 10 minutes
Remaining Time Spent... Visiting other participants, doing co-hosting things.
Total Time Spent Reading: 10 minutes
Mugs of Coffee/Tea drank: 1 after I woke up...does it count?

Comments: Not much actually reading got done this hour as you can notice :P But I'll be back with a vengeance after hour 6. For now I'll mostly focus on the administrative things.

An important note about gtalk:
You have to be invited to join the read-a-thon group chat, so please email me at untuneric at gmail if you want to join. I've been noticing that people often get disconnected by accident after they join, so if that happens to you e-mail me quickly and I'll invite you back. I don't want to just invite everyone who leaves back in case they actually meant to go away and read in peace :P

Another thing:

I's not too late to sponder some of the Read-a-thoners who are doing some fundraising. Andi is donating to Eco-Libris, Chris to NaNoWriMo, and tanabata to Breast Cancer Awareness, for example.

  4. Go, Nymeth, Go!! And I think I read Faerie Tale years ago....or I have it to read.....I can't remember, I read so many by him once! I hope you have lots of caffeine like Chris at Stuff has! :-) OH, and THANK YOU for cheering for Fantasy Book Slut, that was the push she needed and I am half-way through Coraline now :-) Happy reading these 24 hours, dear Nymeth!!

  6. I've only ever read Magician: Apprentice - I've never heard much about Feist's other stuff. Hope when you can actually get around to reading it, it's good!

  9. Thanks for co-hosting! Good luck with your reading. I spend more time reading and posting on others' blogs than actual reading, though. I've got to stop.
