The Sunday Salon - 48 Hour Book Challenge Update

I did it! I set myself a goal of 15 hours and I did it! It was touch and go towards the end what with shopping thrown in the mix but I did it!

Books Finished
When A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and Siobhan Dowd
If You Come Softly by Jacqueline Woodson
The Grand Plan to Fix Everything by Uma Krishnaswami
The Unsinkable Walker Bean by Aaron Reiner
Virals by Kathy Reichs
Palace Beautiful by Sarah DeFord Williams

Books Started
Bossypants by Tina Fey (audio 51 min)
Shine by Lauren Myracle (128 pgs)

Networking - 1hr of Twitter

Total Pages 1,429
Total Time 17hr 1m

Even though I didn't read a ton of hours, this was one of the most satisfying readathons I've ever finished. It's been a while since I've just sat and read for fun.  I actually stayed up beyond my ending time and finished Shine! Such joy!


  1. Kathy, you did great! What do you think of A Monster Calls? It's been on my tbr list for awhile now. Was this your first reading of If You Come Softly?

  2. Great job! I'll have to check and see if Bossypants on audio has Tina Fey reading, because then I totally want it!

    Thanks for playing!

  3. Wow, awesome! I'm pumped to hear what you think of Shine. I'm contemplating buying it, this weekend, but I want to get opinions first (yes, sometimes I can make my own decisions....other times, no. )


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
