Read-A-Thon Update #3

Well into hour 9 of the read-a-thon I finally finished a book: Solar by Ian McEwan. It is the first book I finished, which, combined with my source-reading makes my total of pages 260. I might read another small book, before trying to get some sleep. This means I won’t be updating for a long time, I’ll be back in the morning (GMT) and will probably be able to post something and participate in the last 4-6 hours of the read-a-thon (I might still be reading in between). Good luck to everyone still out there, who isn’t going to sleep or is still at another time of day!

As for a further mini-challenge, I am participating in the Soundtrack Song one by Alita Reads, you can find it over here.

As for a song, I picked Styrofoam Plates, by Death Cab For Cutie, from their album “the Photo Album” for the book I just finished: Solar, – Ian McEwan.

The reason I picked this song is because of my intense dislike for the main-character. The line of this Death Cab song: “He was a bastard in life, thus a bastard in death” kept flashing through my mind while reading the book. He really is a bastard that, whatever happened to him during the story, you cannot help but dislike.

    The reading will stop
    Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
    your book count will be higher
    Just keep thinking about tomorrow
    all the great books you will have to talk about
    with your blog friends
    If you get blurred or sore, or sleepy
    Just stick up your chin
    and grin
    and say
    My TO BE READ PILE, Tomorrow
    will be smaller than it was before
    and your spirits will soar
    because then TOMORROW, TOMORROW You can go shopping TOMORROW at Amazon and BUY SOME MORE!

    Hey! Sorry I didn’t get to cheer you earlier on.😦

    You look like you’ve been doing well on your reading, so congrats for that.πŸ˜€ I’m amazed by all the things people are reading. There are so many books I don’t know and have never heard of, yet at the same time, I’ve seen a couple of titles that have long been on my wish list. It’s amazing~πŸ˜„

    Anyway, it’s good you get to rest. I took a 3 hour nap earlier too. It’s currently 14H here now, so that leaves me with quite a bit of time to jump back into the fray of reading.πŸ˜‰

    Hope you manage to get some more reading hours in when you wake up. Even if you don’t though, I think you did splendid already, so… congrats again!πŸ˜‰

    And remember, the Read-a-Thon isn’t about how many books you read or hours you spend awake. It’s all about the fun you have while reading! I hope you had fun~πŸ˜‰



One of the things I love about book blogging is that it enables conversation. Please don't hesitate to share your thoughts!
