Saturday Read-a-Thon!

I forgot to post and say hi! before I started reading this morning! My hour of the Read-a-Thon started at 8 a.m. I'm reading Still Life by Louise Penny! I'll be back here in about 3 hours to let you know how I'm doing!


  1. Good luck with the read-a-thon, Amy! Happy reading!

  2. Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!

  3. Good luck today, hope you get to read all that you planned.

  4. My name is Louise, and I am from Copenhagen, Denmark. This is my first visit to your blog, and I am already looking forward to come back when the whole Read-a-Thon busyness has come down ;-)

    The Read-a-Thon began for me at 2 PM, since 5 AM Pacific Time means 2 PM Copenhagen Time ;) I hope to be able to hang around for many more hours... I am not reading though, but having a lot of fun working my way through a lot of great blogs to cheer. GO! GO! GO!

  5. Thank you to all of you! I realized this morning that the cats can be very demanding in the morning! Betsy, the littlest one who has become my shadow in the last couple of weeks, seems to know I am "busy" this morning. She has sat on my book repeatedly, stuck her head in my bowl of cereal, stolen my spoon and started swiping my pen when I was jotting some notes!! Cats always seem to know when something different is going on and they love to get in the way!

    It is wonderful to see you all here cheering me on! My fellow reader, my husband, has read for all of about 30 minutes this morning! LOL

    I'll be back later!
