Read-a-Thon 2nd update (7:30pm)

I’m still here reading along! I had meant to post more often but I couldn’t stop reading “Catching Fire” – whoever said it was a page turner was right! I’m on page 192 of 275. The plan of having fun reading without any expectations of anything is the best plan (for me anyway).

Anyway, after I made the previous post I went around and commented on all the readers I was assigned too. Then I read until it was time for dinner – which I went out for. Now I’m back and ready for a second round of cheerleading and then I’m going to read for a bit longer and then maybe watch some episodes of Castle (on DVD). That so counts as reading! It’s a show about an author who gets to hang out with a detective! He’s literary! And .. and I’ll be “reading” the closed captions! So there! ;)

    I’ve traveled the world twice over,
    Met the famous; saints and sinners,
    Poets and artists, kings and queens,
    Old stars and hopeful beginners,
    I’ve been where no-one’s been before,
    Learned secrets from writers and cooks
    All with one library ticket
    To the wonderful world of books.

    I hope you’re enjoying your reading, wherever it’s taking you!!

  2. HAHA! I was totally suggesting that when we signed up. I thought it had to count as reading if I was watching a sub-title!

    Glad to see you’re still hanging in there. Food is mucho important ….speaking of which…going to need a snack soon.

    I love your way of looking at “Castle”, even if I’m unfamiliar with what it is ;)

    Thanks for the comments!

    @Iris – “Castle” is awesome! :) It’s about a mystery writer (Richard Castle played by Nathan Fillion previously seen on Firefly), who gets to shadow a NYPD detective (Kate Beckett played by Stana Katic) “thanks to his friendship with the mayor” – as it’s explained on the show. One of the cool things about it is that a couple of times we see Castle playing poker with real life authors – including Stephen J. Cannell, who recently passed away. Cannell was also an advisor with the show and there’s a great extra on the season 1 dvds where Nathan spends time shadowing Stephen to see how an author lives and works. Here’s some more info:

    I’ll be reading Castle’s newest book next. *laugh* I love reading fiction by fictional authors………especially ones that look like Nathan Fillion. Yum!

    Thanks for cheering me on.

    Castle totally counts! Now I wish I’d saved last week’s episode for today. :)

    Or, at least, one 24-hour-long exhausted reading! Keep it up!
