Mini Read-A-Thon: A Mini Wrap-Up


Well, this mini read-a-thon was far from the blazing success of the first; I got through a grand total of one book and halfway through a second before I lost my concentration. Just one of those days!

I read Bonjour Tristesse, by Françoise Sagan, in its tiny entirety, and got through four chapters of Hotel du Lac, a Booker Prize winner by Anita Brookner. I'm enjoying it and plan on finishing. Tristesse was slight and fun, sort of. We'll see if it gets the full Boston-Bibliophile-review treatment.

Thanks to my cheerleaders for your support and to Vasilly of 1330V for doing this one with me. Maybe I'll give it another shot some other time- today just wasn't my day.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who lost their concentration! Today was really just one of those days. It's a good thing that some of the books I read was so short, or else I wouldn't have finished even one. Maybe we'll so better next time?

it does happen BB. I hope you gather yourself and sail through again.

I hope you had a good time anyway. And finishing a book and a half in a short time is a great accomplishment!

A book and a half in one day would be a wonderful accomplishment for me, so I say you did a great job!

At least you gave it a shot - that's more than most of us did. To really do a read-a-thon right, I'd have to leave my house. Going to the beach would be ideal!
