Read-a-Thon Time!

This is my first time participating in the Dewey's 24 hour read-a-thon, and I'm having fun with it so far. I started reading at 8am, the EST start time, and read for about half an hour. I had to take some time to get acquainted with Maps, because I've neglected it for far too long.  Then, the hubby and I went to breakfast and ran some errands.

I've been back for a couple hours, and have immersed myself in Emperor Mage, the third book in Tamora Pierce's Immortals series. I'm three quarters of the way done, but I had to take a bit of a break and come up for air. Plus, I realized I hadn't written a post to track my progress for the day :-) I'll be updating this post as the day goes one.

Are you participating in the read-a-thon? How's it going so far?

1:30 Update: Finished Emperor Mage. Participated in my  first mini-challenge over at Reflections of a Bookaholic. Going to read a bit more of Maps.

3:45 Update: Read about 20 pages of Maps. Read Aya of Yop City, a graphic novel by Marguerite Abouet. Did Midnight Book Girl's Book-Staging Mini-Challenge. *My submission* Visited some blogs, encouraged some people on Twitter.

6:45 Update: Read another 20 pages of Maps. Went for a walk. Made & ate dinner. Visited some more blogs. Started The Realm of the Gods, the last of Tamora Pierce's Immortals series. I'm a little less than halfway done. Now the hubby wants to go downtown and listen to some music, so I'll be taking another break.

10:30 Update: Got back home, read more of The Realm of the Gods. On page 270. I'd like to finish it tonight, but I'm tired. Maybe in the morning??

Oh man, I used to love Tamora Pierce. I bet she's a good author for a readathon!

My readathon is going well, but I also had to run some errands so that slowed me down. Now I'm back at home, on my couch and in my pjs, so I'm back on track.

Happy reading!

You can always finish The Realm on the Gods in the morning. Sweet dreams!
