Nearly halfway done....Dewey's Readathon update

So for the past few hours, The rest of the family FINALLY woke up and we all curled up on the couch to watch a bit of tv, giving  my eyes a slight reprieve for 30 minutes.  I have been munching on the pasta salad and a cold platter of veggies and dip.  Drinking lots of iced tea :) Also got some family read time in. And I fell into the temptation of the red vines at last, but only had a few.  And I did some more cheering and a bit of chatting on twitter.

 Mid event survey
1. What are you reading right now?
Golden Son is my main Focus but bouncing with a graphic novel and Gameboard of the Gods too. 2. How many books have you read so far?
See the stats above...
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?

So far, really liking Golden Son.  As to what else I  will read, it depends on how I feel.  So many I want to read but 24 hours just isn't enough time for them all :)
4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?

Naturally.  My dog strained his leg (the joys of hip dysplasia) and my main Goodreads group is working on a challenge that keeps getting me sidetracked :)  And it keeps raining which through off one of my primary reading spots.  Although I cannot complain because we desperately needed the rain here.
5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
For some reason, twitter seems quieter than last year.  I thought it would be more social but it is the opposite it seems to me.

I am nowhere near where I was hoping to be (and so very far away from the spa day) but I am having a good time! 


  1. Red vines! Why didn't I think of that? That has to be about the perfect eat-along food with a book. Hope you and your family are enjoying the RAT! Good luck the rest of the way!

  2. Hot coco is great for reading in a comfy chair!

  3. Oh do you like reading outside?! I do a lot!! Seriously my fav spot is on our porch!! Yay for much needed rain!! Even though it makes me want to sleep lol!! Yay for family snuggle time!!
