The End of the Year Read-a-thon is here! It was only a couple of weeks ago that I finally decided to tag along on this particular read-a-thon but I kind of feel like I've been waiting for it for ages. I *really* like the sound of a couple of weeks of read-a-thoning before Christmas and the fact that it spans over a fortnight is handy. Sure, it also happens to fall before I've finished my Christmas shopping and on the fortnight that it is my current workplace's Christmas party (which rules out the Friday and probably the Saturday...:|) but I still feel as though I'll have plenty of time to get some quiet time before it's time for turkey, red wine and inebriated game playing at the Lit Addicted Brit household!
I'm not sure how many posts I'm going to break this down into but I'll try to keep from bombarding your readers too viciously. I suppose we'll see how much I get written and go from there!

8.57am: A quick update before I go and get some work done but I finished this week's read-along reading of A Tale of Two Cities on my way into work this morning and thought that deserved a modest noting! Things are MUCH better now and there was a slight temptation to read on into Book 3 (next week's reading) but in the end I thought I'd spur my read-a-thon effort a little bit by starting Cracked by Eliza Crewe. I was expecting it to be good but it's much more...grown up than I thought it would be. It's quite dark and I don't think it could be any further away from the sophisticated fury of A Tale of Two Cities and I have high hopes!
