Emily at Books & Cleverness is hosting a Dusting Off The Shelf Read-A-Thon in which I’m participating!. It’s all about finally reading those poor neglected books that have been collecting dust for six months or more…Below you can find my progress during days four, five and six.

  • DAY 4: MONDAY AUGUST 4TH
    # Book finished: Stephen King – The Shining
    # Pages read: 91 (512/512; DONE!)
    flies# Book started: William Golding – Lord Of The Flies
    # Pages read: 40 (on page 40 out of 272)
    (Total pages read on Monday: 131)
    I was finally able to finish The Shining, yay! I ended up loving it, even though it is a very creepy story, and I definitely recommend it to horror fans. Very scary final scene at the Overlook!
  • DAY 5: TUESDAY AUGUST 5TH
    # Book continued: William Golding – Lord Of The Flies
    # Pages read: 182 (on page out 222 of 272)
    Oh dear, that’s a bunch of seriously messed up kids! Am I the only one having terrible Lost flashbacks when reading Lord Of The Flies? Jack and his crew are seriously disturbed! I cannot wait to see how it ends though…
  • DAY 6: WEDNESDAY AUGUST 6TH
    # Book finished: William Golding – Lord Of The Flies
    # Pages read: 50 (272/272; DONE!)
    theknownworld# Book started: Edward P. Jones – The Known World
    # Pages read: 64 (on page 64 out of 388)
    (Total pages read on Wednesday: 114)
    I finally decided to take some time to update It’s All About Books and write some reviews that were due, so I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have wanted… But at least I’m now reading my third book (and with this one I will be completing the three challenges, yay!)

  1. Read The Lord of the Flies in high school and was not a fan, but I don’t remember why. The Known World is also on my TBR. I hope you enjoy. Still haven’t chosen my #Dusting book for August, but I will.

    • Lord Of The Flies is definitely not suited for a broad audience… The Known World until now lives up to my expectations, I hope the story continues like this. 🙂

    • Thanks! It’s been hard finding the time to read every day… But there are some interesting books on the list still, so hopefully I can keep up this pace. 🙂

    • I couldn’t read that much yesterday, so I have a lot of catching up to do today… Lord Of The Flies was not one of my favorites, but I still enjoyed it. 🙂
