April 2012 Readathon Update Three

Damn, it’s been a PRODUCTIVE readathon for me so far. So it’s like the 11th hour. Holy wow. Almost HALF WAY DONE!

So here’s what I’ve read since the last update:

First Day On Earth Cecil Castellucci Book Cover

First Day On Earth

First Day On Earth by Cecil Castellucci – 150 pages and while science-fiction-y, totally reads like a contemporary book.

Just Write: Here's How Walter Dean Myers Book Cover

Just Write: Here's How

Just Write: Here’s How by Walter Dean Myers – 144 pages. Also? I am the first person to rate this on goodreads. It’s not bad and I think has value in a classroom library and written in a frank way.

The Invention Of Hugo Cabret

The Invention Of Hugo Cabret

The Invention Of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick – 534 pages – so previously I had read 80 pages, and omg you guys I just whipped through this book, SO GOOD AHHHHH! AND CAPTIVATING! AND  GORGEOUS!

Food consumed: Ants on a log, pita chips and hummus, AND spaghetti and garlic cheese bread (sidebar: I am in LOVE with my metabolism)

Listened To: Y’all, I am obviously still listening to Helter Skelter, which is like the longest audiobook I’ve listened to in months. So far today I have listened to 3 hours and 49 minutes. Note as soon as I finish a book, or go to do a chore, or type these updates or do anything where I can’t hold a physical book, I listen to this audiobook and have walked around the house with the headphones on listening.

  4. You are reading some eclectic books!! I am putting a couple of them on my TBR list, they sound very diffferent from what I have right now.
    Keep up the reading and the caffeine 😀 Though have an apple instead of a cuppa – apples have more cafeine 🙂
