A read-a-thon, Mara Dyer, and other news.

Feeling overwhelmed because you have too many books and not enough time to read them? The Bout of Books Read-a-Thon is just what the book doctor ordered. (Hosted by the fabulous Amanda @ On A Book Bender.)

Read as much as you can whenever you can between
 12:00am 8/22 and 11:59pm 8/28 (your time zone).

Go HERE for the details and sign-up list.
Then spread the word!

In other awesome news, I woke up to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer being delivered to my front door! Can you say "OMG"? Because that was my reaction. Plus, Lindsey threw in the cutest little cupcake card, which was the second best surprise of my morning. I know I've already said it a zillion times, but thank you, Lindsey! (Check out her blog here.)
Also, I am now out of my reading slump. Hip hip hooray! I hate reading slumps. And I hate reading slumps that last longer than one week. It wastes very valuable reading time. Thankfully I've had some great people keep me company while I whined and sat on Twitter all day. Don't know what I'd have done without them. Stare at a wall, maybe? Gone into a coffee coma? We'll never know.
In less stellar news, I am still awaiting my email that will permit me early access to Pottermore. It's been... what? Maybe three days since they started letting people in? And my patience is already gone and my anticipation is through the roof. It's killing me, people! I am living vicariously through those on Twitter that update me about its wonders.
In even less stellar news, school starts up again in roughly one and a half weeks. I am not thrilled to be going back to gross food and work. But, this summer was eventful and awesome, so I can't complain. I hope all of your summers were amazing, too.


  1. Yay read-a-thons! Yay for getting books!

    Boo Pottermore. Boo school.

  2. Nice! You're sooo lucky to get Mara Dyer! >_< I can't wait to read your thoughts on it. :)

  3. So jealous you got Mara Dyer. I'm dying to read it, it looks awesome! And I'm the same with Pottermore - I'm stalking the lucky people who got the email on Twitter and refreshing my inbox every 20 seconds...

  4. I have three more weeks before school restarts for the final year (whee, I don't want it to end!). I just want to survive this month. This fasting business is killlling me. And I hope you enjoy Mara Dyer. It's not perfect but it has some very good points. I hope you get the pottermore access soon.

  5. I don't want to go back to school!!! But I am excited to see my friends and live the college life style. :P I move back in less than a week now.

    Let me know what you think about Mara.
