So how's it going, Bout of Bookers? All getting plenty of reading and snacking and chatting done?! The start to my read-a-thon has been a bit mixed but I always knew the start was going to be slow - the beginnings of my weeks are almost always the busiest at work. Fancy a little progress update? Of course you do...
Pages read so far: 99
Books read so far: About a third of The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
The writing style is pretty unique and it took me a while to get into the story but now that I am used to it, I love it. It just makes my heart hurt to read about Offred and all of the other Handmaids and I'm 95% convinced that I'll cry at least once before I'm done reading. Quality over quantity, remember? So far, I am winning at that :)
I'm travelling down to the south of England and back up tomorrow so I'll have about 6/7 hours on trains. Obviously for some of that, I'll be working but later on, I'm hoping to get a good chunk of reading done. After that it's obviously the weekend and since Boyfriend and I are still on a healthy no-drinking-alcohol kick, I'll have plenty of time to get stuck into reading.
Hope all of you read-a-thoners are reaching your goals and getting everything you wanted out of Bout of Books! And if you aren't taking part, I hope you're having a fab week anyway, because this is that kind of place!
