Read-a-Thon Wrap-Up


Whew! I got through quite a bit of my stack of TBR graphic novels today. Books I read:

Bombaby, by Anthony Mazzotta, a comic about a young Indian girl about to get married, who may be the incarnation of an ancient goddess,

Diary of the Black Widow, a very entertaining comic by Bret M. Herholz, about a young woman who marries and kills,

Lummox, volumes 1-3, by Dan Mazur, about an unwitting superhero,

Glister, Issue One, by Andi Watson, about a young English girl who finds a haunted teapot,

I Feel Like a Grown-up Now, by Scott Dikkers, the last of the Jim's Journal series,

Rex Libris: I Librarian, by James Turner, an entertaining comic about a librarian-superhero,

Klezmer: Tales of the Wild East, by Joann Sfar, about traveling Klezmer musicians in pre-war Eastern Europe,

The Metamorphosis, by Franz Kafka and Peter Kuper, an adaptation of the classic story,
Italic
Buddha, Volume 1 Kapilavatsu, by Osamu Tezuka, volume 1 of 8 about the life of the Buddha, and

Maybe Later, by Charles Berberian and Philippe Dupuy, a dual account of the creation of their professional partnership and Mr. Jean series.

You'll be seeing reviews of many of these books in upcoming Graphic Novel Mondays posts.

I'm sure I'm not the only one to admit to a bit of envy for your 12-hour readathon today!

Do you really think you'll do this again next week?

Rex Libris must have been fun!

Vasilly said...

You did it! It sounds like you had a pretty great day. What graphic novel was your favorite today?

Marie said...

I might do it again next week. My schedule next Wed will be about the same so it's possible. I'll see when I get there. I won't post as much though- maybe just two posts! Maybe just one! :-) Rex Libris was cute but it was very, very heavy on teeny tiny text and a little hard to read!

Katie said...

Great job Marie!!

Your readathon on a Wednesday just made me think, gee, I suppose I could do a mini-readathon any day now couldn't I? Never thought of that before :) I think I'll wait until the next rainy, cold weekend and hold my own.

bookmagic said...

Wow, amazing, I can't believe how much you read. I should try something like this once a month. Great job!

bookjourney said...

You did amazing!

Nana Fredua-Agyeman said...

You have really made it. Go Marie Go Marie. I am happy for you. You really are a Bibliophile.

Michelle said...

Congratulations on a fabulous readathon! If only we could have a readathon every day right?

JoAnn said...

You sure got a lot of reading done. Maybe I'll declare a few hours next Wednesday as my mini-read-a-thon!

bermudaonion said...

Great job! You've got me thinking I need to do the same thing one day.

Care said...

applause, applause! I look forward to the reviews.

A Bookshelf Monstrosity said...

Well, you are quite welcome. Looks like it was a success.

Diane said...

Wow, you really accomplished a lot. A 12- Hour Read-a-thon sounds perfect. May be it should be a monthly event?? LOL

Meghan said...

Wow, you read tons of graphic novels! Looks like you had a very successful 12 hour readathon!

I'm looking forward to all your reviews! I'm glad Graphic Novel Mondays is back, now that I'm really into graphic novels!

Alexia561 said...

Wow, you did a great job with the readathon! Congratulations!

Kathrin said...

Oh wow, you did really, really well :-) I hope you'll post some (mini-)reviews soon? :-)

Anna said...

Great job...and great idea! I should hold a mini-read-a-thon myself, as I didn't even finish a single book during the 24-hour RAT. Well, I already planned to spend my day off tomorrow reading, so we'll see. :)
