It's Monday and I am another year older...


Hi friends! It has been a crazy few days, but they were really good. I celebrated my birthday with my family and my husband's family. Then, of course, it was the 24 Hour Readathon this weekend. I didn't read anywhere near 24 hours, but it was still a lot of fun! Did you join in the readathon? Did you read anything fantastic?

Read This Week:
The Museum of Extraordinary Things
By Alice Hoffman

Outside In

Something Rotten (Thursday Next, #4)

  1. I didn't do the readathon but kinda wished I had, since we had a quiet weekend and I might have actually made some headway. It sounds like it was fun!

    1. You just never know how the weekend will go, do you? I don't think I've read more than one book for readathon in a while, but it is still a good time. :)

  2. Happy (late) birthday! I wasn't able to take part in the readathon but I did read and enjoy Frog Music over the weekend.

    Have a great reading week!

  6. Happy Birthday!! I had a ton of fun during the Readathon, but boy did I pay for it yesterday...I finally feel a little less zombie-ish today. I've heard good things about Invisible City, so I hope it ends up being a good read for you!

  7. I read quite a bit on Saturday but didn't join the readathon. I am not a big fan of structured reading time. I like to be unscheduled on weekends. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  10. Happy late birthday! And AHHH you read a Jasper Fforde AND Alice Hoffman book! I can't wait to get to the Alice Hoffman book...but if I recall Something Rotten wasn't one of my favourites in the Thursday Next series.

      I liked Something Rotten, although it wasn't my favorite either. Have you read all of the books up to date??
