Novella Read-A-Thon Wrap-up

Thought I'd do a quick post to wrap up my weekend Novella/Short Story Read-a-thon.

I visited so many different worlds this weekend!  And enjoyed them all.

I got a little bit of a slow start on Saturday.  The morning was pretty well shoot in the foot with taking one of the girls to the vet and the kid to training.  Then I was feeling so exhausted in the afternoon.  I read a little bit, but dozed off some.  Then went to the movies, and read some more when got home.  But didn't feel like I got very far.

Sunday.  Sunday was a better day for me.  I woke up and started reading.  I even canceled my regular trip to see my dad to relax at home and vegetate.  Only place I went was to the grocery store.  Then I did watch Once Upon a Time with reading on the commercials.  By 9:30 my eyes were tired from all the reading, so I listened to two episodes of my current podcast story.

So what did I get through?  Here's the list:

  • Magic by Gaslight by Philippa Ballantine
  • Defender of Magic by S.A. Archer & S. Ravynheart
  • Questing Beast by Ilona Andrews
  • A Mere Formality by Ilona Andrews
  • Curran POV 3 by Ilona Andrews
  • Gimme Shelter edited by J.R. Blackwell
  • Dead Drop: A Lawson Vampire Bonus Story by Jon F. Merz
  • Love, Death, and Loneliness by Douglas Brown

I'm a slow reader.  I wanted to get through so many more.  I had more on the Nook ready to read, and short stories printed on the desk waiting for me.

I might have to do this again in the future.  It was nice to visit so many worlds, and feel like I was getting somewhere.  But right now, I have lots of work to do to review all these for you. :)

Thank you Melissa! I didn't think Saturday would result in any reads at first. I think it was the mood with the weather. :) But worked out to a nice reading weekend.
