Finishing the third quarter for Dewey's Readathon

readathon5 

Major drama hit the neighborhood since my last update.  A pack of abandoned and wild street dogs were near my house attacking people, kids, dogs, cats etc.  One neighbor lost his cat, one guy was attacked but luckily the dog barely broke the skin before turning to fight another dog.  Two dogs had to go to the emergency vets.  Horrible and tragic!  And upsetting as animal control refuses to deal with it.  Their answer was if we catch the dogs we can take them in though. HA!  Like I want to go near these dogs!!  
 
Luckily for us, our dog and cats were kept inside, safe.  This put severe damper on my reading this evening.  Even after helping the neighbors with the injured dogs, I was so upset that I just couldn't focus for a long time.  Still struggling a bit.  But I did get a bit of reading in.  Mostly light reading, to sooth my mind.  I also did some extra cheering.

Made Progress In: 
Golden Son (Red Rising Trilogy, #2)Magi, Vol. 14: The Labyrinth of Magic 
 
Finished: 
 Rosa Goes to DaycareThe Magic Pocket: Selected Poems 

Dropped: 
Deadman Wonderland, Vol. 11 
I enjoy this series and had this as an eArc.  The translation was horrible!  Overlapping letter corrections, utterly misspelled words, random gaps in words, etc.  So I will just have to wait until I can get a finished copy.  The arc was impossible to try and follow. When a graphic novel has at least 5+ obvious mistakes that is just not okay, even for an arc.  I can't follow a story when every sentence has errors.

Overall Readathon Stats:
Graphic Novel/Picture book pages: 332
Novel Pages: 268
Converted page total toward rewards: 378
Books Completed: 5
Books in which I've made Progress (not complete): 3
Challenges I entered: 9
Drinks: Apricot Ceylon Tea, Cherry Pepsi, Iced Green tea, energy drink
Food: Poppy Seed Muffin, Pasta salad and veggie platter, red vines, sunflower seeds 

I am fairly wide awake still so still have at least a couple more hours in me.  I will try to do at least 1 more update later on, hopefully with better results.
