Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-thon Update #2


It’s getting late and my eyes are feeling tired.  Not sure how much longer I’ll be able to keep reading but it has been great fun so far.  I have not spent much time on the computer, will try and check in on bloggers a bit later or in the morning.

Hours spent reading: about 10

Books read:

Sometimes we’re always real same-same by Mattox Roesch.  Loved it, will review later this week.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: A Graphic Novel adapted from an F. Scott Fitzgerald story by Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir.

The Bride’s Farewell by Meg Rosoff.  Another favorite, will review later.

The House of Paper by Carlos Maria Dominquez.  A lovely, quirky little book about books.

The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch.  A graphic novel by Neil Gaiman, Michael Zulli and Todd Klein.

Wee Gillis by Munro Leaf, illustrated by Robert Lawson. A children’s book by the creator of  The Story of Ferdinand.

Pages read: 844

Audio books: Hitchhiker’ Guide to The Galaxy by Douglas Adams, read by Stephen Fry.  I listened to 4 chapters while doing a  things around the house.  This is quite well read and, as always, very funny.

How I’m feeling: My eyes are tired and I’m not sure what to read next.  Maybe a mystery to keep me up a while longer!
