Read-a-thon Hours 13-18

So I finally feel like I made some real progress with the books that I've been reading.


The Pink Motel - Carol Rearie Brink who is most famous for Caddie Woodlawn which I loved as a child but haven't read in years. Sometimes when one is reading old books one finds things that are jarring to modern sensibilities.

Portrait of Jennie - Robert Nathan - Someone recommended this on a mailing list I am on. It was short and sweet and just a little bit poignant.

45 Pounds (More or Less) - K A Barson - I thought this was middle grade when I requested it from Netgalley for some reason but it is definitely YA. I think I will review it properly and post it on the blog. It is going to be the same review I give the publisher and I put on Goodreads and possibly Amazon.

The second two are e-books so I really need to take back my words about reading paper books right now.

Still in Progress
Jo's Boys - I am too cheap to buy audiobooks so this is a Libre Vox recording I am listening to. They are books in the public domain read by volunteers which means you can't complain about the quirks.  I am not going to finish it today because it is nine hours long.

Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls - this is funny but it is not a read all the way through at once kind of book.

  1. You've done really well! Congratulations! I'm too cheap to buy audiobooks too, but I've found that my local library offers e-audiobooks that I can borrow and download onto my iPod.
