Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon Progress

The reading part of this read-a-thon so far has been going fine, but updates not my forte this week. The time is not accurate at all. I noticed that the time tracking was making me want to read less so because I would like to keep some general time for my end of year stats I decided I would guestimate on the time read. I have read quite a bit this week and enjoy just being able to pick the book up and not write down the time.

As you can see from the updates probably not my best read-a-thon week. I feel that I have done a really good job. Tomorrow's update will include finishing The Real Boy and starting Little City by the Lake. I think I do have the possibility of finishing the books I set as my goals.

I literally did not start reading until 6 on this day. I just could not motivate myself to read. We were babysitting from 7 to midnight so it wasn't a very productive reading day.

  1. You say your reading isn't that great, but you're totally kicking my butt. I am not doing so awesome this time around. I blame Steinbeck. The Grapes of Wrath has put me to sleep three times. It's sad. On a side note...I have a present for you. I've nominated you for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Thanks for the great reads Rachael!

    1. I hate Steinbeck with a passion. My read was fine. I just didn't want to update.
