48 hour Readathon Update #1

MotherReader is hosting this awesome readathon. You can still sign up!

So, I didn't quite start at 4 yesterday. My official start time is 7:30 pm and so I will be going until that time on Sunday. Last night I read for four hours straight, finishing two books and reading a little bit of another.

Here's what I read:

Finished Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien (200 pages)
Finished Perchance to Dream by Lisa Mantchev (143 pages)
Started reading The Lost Children by Carolyn Cohagan (30 pages)

I'm also sort of picking up on and off What Happened on Fox Street by Trisha Springstubb - it's a funky book and hard to digest so far. (about 10 pages of that thusfar)

Total hours: 4
Total pages: 383 pages
Books completed: 2

I am going out to lunch and a huge signing today (HarperTeen's Supernatural Summer Tour) with Sara from The Hiding Spot, Drea from Book Blather, and (possibly) Erica from The Book Cellar - so I will be gone for about 5ish hours and will not be able to read during that time most likely. But it is a rainy day, so hopefully I can squeeze in an hour before I head out.
