24 Hour Read-A-Thon Update 2


I am coming up to the fourth hour of the Read-A-Thon and I’m feeling very good. This morning I listened to some of Blindness by Jose Saramago on my MP3, it is a fantastic story to listen to and the narrator has an amazing ability to create different tones for the many characters. Although the last chapter I listened to contains much talk about poop, seriously it is as though the author used a super thesaurus to find all the words possible to describe crap.  Anyways after putting that aside I picked up Roald Dahl's Book Of Ghost Stories – very good collection!

Hi from PEI!

Uglies would be a perfect book for the Readathon. Have you got Pretties as well?
Have fun!

I used to love Roald Dahl's books when I was in middle school.

I'm very curious about Roald Dahl's Book Of Ghost Stories! I've heard it's a great anthology.

Ooh, I finished Uglies yesterday and Pretties about 10 minutes ago - I want to read Specials, but I think I might take a break and read another author for a bit. Sounds like you're doing great. Happy reading! :)

Wow Joanne, you're doing great! I'm curious to see what you think of Uglies.

I bet Blindness is great to listen to (minus the poop). Maybe that's how I'll get through it eventually because I haven't had much luck with the print version!

Love the Uglies series - what a great pick for a read-a-thon!
