Mystery RAT Update 3

For some strange reason many of my posts keep disappearing. Hopefully these will stay and I won’t have to continue to recreate them.

Currently Reading: The Killing Circle by Andrew Pyper and 1st to Die by James Patterson
Pages Read: 614
Time Spent Reading: 9 hour 30 minutes
Books Finished: 2 – Dead and Gone and A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris

I don’t think I’m going to make it to my 12 hours today. I’m getting too tired and I have church in the morning, but I hope to pick up some more reading before the weekend is over – including maybe finishing off a couple more books.

Mystery RAT Update 2

Currently Reading: The Killing Circle by Andrew Pyper and 1st to Die by James Patterson
Pages Read: 528
Time Spent Reading: 7 hour 30 minutes
Books Finished: 2 – Dead and Gone and A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris

Haven’t finished another book yet. I was getting a little bored with The Killing Circle so I started 1st to Die. It’s moving a lot more quickly. I’ll be needing to run an errand here soon so the reading will be down, but I’m still on the quest to read for at least 12 hours today, if not more.

Mystery RAT Update 1

Had to take a little break soon after I finally started reading. I probably got about and hour and a half of reading in so far. I keep refreshing my tea, eating donut holes and staying cozy in my warm bedroom.

Want to get back at it. Anxious to find out what happens next.

3rd Mystery Read-a-Thon BEGINS

I already posted this but for some reason it has disappeared. I thought I would do another quite post. The 3rd Mystery Read-a-Thon started this morning and goes through tomorrow night. I’ve already started reading.

Here’s my book stack for today:

1) Give us five fun-facts about you. (Things that are so trivial you wouldn’t think of them right away, but that might make others smile.)

  1. I joined a bowling league this year.
  2. I collect books on cupcakes.
  3. I have a large Johnny Depp posted in my room.
  4. I would walk around in fuzzy boots all day if I could get away with it.
  5. I’m currently drinking black candy bar tea. Yum.

2) What is on your TBR stack for the next two days?

  1. Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris (in progress)
  2. Sweetheart by Chelsea Cain
  3. Seven Up by Janet Evanovich
  4. A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris (in progress)
  5. The Killing Circle by Andrew Pyper (in progress)
  6. 1st to Die by James Patterson
  7. Glory in Death by J.D. Robb

3) Do you have any specific hopes and plans for this read-a-thon?

Not particularly. I want to read as much as I can and get through a lot of books. Sweetheart is a library book and the Killing Circle is an ER book so both of those are high on my list.

4) Did you participate in the Mystery Read-A-Thon in the past?

I intended to last year but didn’t get to. I look forward to joining again already in the future.

5) If you already participated, can you give the new participants any tips on what to do and what not to do?

6) If this is your first Mystery Read-A-Thon, how do you plan to go ahead?

It’s not the first read-a-thon I have participated in, so I’m familiar with the process. I just plan on reading as much as I can without interruption, make notes and updates as I go along. Hopefully I will do better than the last read a thon I joined.
