Today #insixwords: Both successful and unsuccessful reading day

14.10 – So Tuesday and the read-a-thon curse has reared its’ ugly head yet again. I’ve spent my morning adding chick lit to my library wishlist and very little else! I did however read the introduction to Jenny Colgan’s The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris so we can add 3 pages to number of pages so far? Ha. Oh and I re-did my little sidebar welcome message to better reflect what you can expect from Once Upon A Time. That was actually somewhat productive. I still have a blog post to get out so I shan’t be reading just yet but I have plans to go enjoy the cosy feeling of being inside on a rainy day very soon. 🙂

Bob is waiting..

16.20 – Still haven’t started reading yet today! However, I’m heading over to the bed now to snug up with my books. Just can’t shake the feeling that there’s something important I haven’t done..

19.55 – It’s still raining and I’m loving that gentle pitter-patter against the window while I read! Or.. I just stopped reading because I finished The Night Circus! 😀 I didn’t really intend to. I sat down to read the last few pages of part 3 for the book club discussion, then 3 hours later I was finished. Or 4? I dunno. But I’m off to start something else. Got Undertaking Love and Ex-Heroes on the go as well, Ex-Heroes is a little more difficult to track, however, being on the Kindle.

21.35 – Going to read a little of Ex-Heroes so I can mark it off my NetGalley list. I’m at 38%, using this, I’m on page 131. Didn’t do any challenges today because I’m clueless with music and ended up dawdling way too much. Hoping the exercise bike is useable tomorrow..

22.10 – Read a couple of pages of Ex-Heroes before deciding to put it on hold. It’s not been astonishingly good so far and I’m not feeling the whole zombie apocalypse thing even if there are superheroes involved. Gonna head off and pick something else.
