Summer Library Challenge Read-a-Thon: Day 1 Stats

We've finished our first day of the Summer Library Challenge Read-a-Thon. We typically post our updates at the end of each day, but since I did three posts yesterday, that was totally not happening. I told Darian that I would put this post up in the morning and then we'd get caught back up. So...there will be another update post late this evening to wrap up Day 2's progress.

Darian was a total reading fiend for day one. I think part of it had to do with the fact that he was stuck at my office for a chunk of the afternoon, but the rest was because he was just far too excited to start his current book, Zombies vs. Unicorns, so he wanted to hustle up and finish the book he was reading. Whatever works; he got a great jumpstart on the week. He's putting me a little to shame on his reading time.

So far, I'm having good luck with the books I'm undertaking for the week. I'm hoping that this selection proves to be as good as last week's. Having all of those books be so good made it really easy to want to spend the majority of my free time reading. Day two probably won't be as productive on the reading front for me. It's my busiest work day this week, so I will only have time in the evening after dinner is all done and cleaned up. I also have some laundry that will need attention, so there goes a bit more of the night. Oh well...I'm sure I'll make up for it later in the week.

Here's where we are at the end of Day 1...

  1. Wow good job Darian, so much reading completed. He puts my reading to shame also. I'm interested what you think of The Ugly Step Sisters. I found that my library has a copy so I would be able to read it.

    1. He is a pretty voracious reader when the bug bites him. I just finished Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister...it wasn't awful, but it wasn't my favorite. It started a little slow, but had it's merit.
