Dewey’s Read-a-Thon Update

Nice RecoveryThis is I guess my second update from this morning.

After reading Through Thick and Thin by Sandra Byrd I was suppose to take a half hour break but that turned into an hour break. I was going to fellow read a thoners blogs and the Dewey home page checking out the mini challenges when I got side tracked so I quickly ended up getting offline.

I picked up Nice Recovery by Susan Juby to read and preceeded to read that for an hour and a half. I am about half way through that. I stopped at noon to have lunch and the quickly popped online again to check the challenges.

When I looked at the time I realized that I had to leave to pick up Donna from Books Bound because we were going to chapters to meet up with Catherine McKenzie the author of Spin. Got my book signed, picture taken and we chatted for a bit. Look for my post about this meet up this week.

While at Chapters we met up with Linda from Better With Books and her boyfriend. Linda came down to get her book signed and do to a little book shopping.

We all split up and looked around the store. I picked up a couple of books so check back this week to see what I bought. Then Donna and I went upstairs to Starbucks to get a cold drink and rest a bit.

I was looking out for Laura Fabiani the author of Daughter of Mine as she said she was popping in. I got to meet Laura last year when I reviewed her book so it was really nice to see her. I have a post to write up this week talking about it.

When I came home i quickly picked up Twilight the graphic novel by Stephenie Meyer to read before heading out to my mother’s for supper. Managed to read it in about an hour. I am going to be reading Twilight this summer I think.

We didn’t stay that long at my mother’g because I think Michael might be getting sick as he seems to be showing some signs. So while he watched some tv I picked up Alexis and the Sacramento Surprise and just finished it. Took me about an hour and a half to read that.

Sorry I don’t have pictures to show of the books but for some reason I keep getting an error message.
