Hour 7 – Wrapped Up in Books

Amanda here from Fig and Thistle!

My favorite aspect of read-a-thon is being all wrapped up in books. Not just the reading, but the entire literary love fest. I love planning out my stack, buying snacks, writing the entire day off for bookish pursuits and making new friends who get my readerly ways.

Let me know what you’re wrapped up in today? Is there a particular novel you cannot put down? An audio book or graphic novel that is leaving you riveted? Or maybe you’re excited that so many people are participating and you’re wrapped up in a social media channel chatting away and, most likely, finding new titles to add to you’re TBR list?

Seriously, let me know in the comments. Let’s chat!

  1. I’m totally stuck in thinking and re-thinking about the books I’m reading. It’s exciting the fact that I can give my time to reading!

  2. I am loving the community on Instagram. I didn’t get rid of my kids today so I’ve been more distracted reading wise but it’s easy to leave a comment or two on the #readathon tag.

  3. I just devoured Bird Box by Josh Malerman. I don’t think I would have been able to put it down even if I hadn’t picked it for the Readathon! It’s gripping, scary, almost overwhelming In its pace…whew. Not something I’d want to read alone at night!
