  1. Hi Faye! Thank you for hosting–I did last April and I know how much work it is…so just know you are appreciated!
    *smiles*

  2. Hi Faye *waves*. Enjoying this readathon so far although I am not impressed that the sun has hidden itself away from Yorkshire now, tsk! Still, I have a comfy couch, lots of coffee and a huge pile of books – what’s not to love? πŸ™‚

  3. I’m surprised how fast time is going…but I guess that happens when you’re happily content reading and blogging πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Jennifer – so far i haven’t read anything yet as been on full steam ahead this morning with family and the thon! But in the pipeline i have Katie Fforde – Going Dutch & Emma Donoghue – Room. When i get home i have others which include Tiger Hills and hopefully the rest of Very Valentine! You?

  5. Awww thanks so much πŸ˜€ i’m almost breaking a sweat and my keyboard might start smoking!

  6. Wow, this day’s just flying by! I can’t believe we’re already at hour five.

    And enjoy that sunshine, Faye. Today’s the first time we got any here (my part of Canada) for a while, and I can definitely relate on how wonderful it is.

  7. This is my first time checking in. I’m currently reading ‘Altar of Bones’ by Philip Carter, which is a break-neck paced thriller with lots of running about and avoiding getting killed for its protagonists.

    I had already started it, so have added another 235 pages, meaning I am about 100 pages from the end.

    My cat Buffy has been keeping me company.

    Right well back to the action. I plan to read until about 7pm (BST) and then have a break for dinner.

  8. The question about classics is luring me to change course and re-read my favorite… The Woman in White.

    Maybe a snack will help me stay focused?

    Hummus with pita, maybe?

  9. I can’t believe it is hour 5 already! I have not read nearly as much as I wanted – but took a break this last hour to celebrate mine and hubby’s birthday that we had at the end of March. Today was the first day the family was together!

    Happy reading!

  10. Hi Faye, its nice to meet you. The sun is shining out here is Missouri, though this morning we had a huge storm. I am so running behind and I am just not jumping into the read-a-thon but better late than never! πŸ™‚

    Stormi

  11. Is it bad that I’ve been enjoying the comments here / blogging more then I’ve been reading? Oops…guess I should get to work

  12. Hey hope everyone is enjoying the read a thon. Hey Faye am from the Uk to going to sit out and enjoy the rest of the weather now and read! Go Everyone and read!

  13. Hi Faye, thanks for hosting πŸ™‚ I have read some great books, On book #3 right now. The Book Puzzle challenge was fun, I suggest that to everyone! Good luck on Hour 6 everyone!
