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 seven, eight and nine.

  • DAY 7: THURSDAY AUGUST 7TH
    # Book continued: Edward P. Jones – The Known World 
    # Pages read: 60 (on page 124 out of 388)
    Boooo, not a lot of reading done today! I don’t know why, but I just don’t have a lot of spare time left for reading…

 

  • DAY 8: FRIDAY AUGUST 8TH
    # Book continued: Edward P. Jones – The Known World 
    # Pages read: 59 (on page 183 out of 388)
    Don’t get me wrong, this book is definitely interesting, but it takes a bit longer to finish it than normally. That and the fact that I have tons of non-reading stuff to do. 😦

 

  • DAY 9: SATURDAY AUGUST 9TH
    # Book continued: Edward P. Jones – The Known World 
    # Pages read: 102 (on page 285 out of 388)
    Argggh! I never seem to finish this one! A lot of short stories of the lives of various slaves, and although it’s interesting, it just takes me way longer to read than a normal novel. I’m keeping my fingers crossed I finish The Known World today…
