Read-a-thon Begins!

Good morning all! I was hoping to have North and South finished before this morning, but I didn't quite make it. So, my first order of business is to finish off the last 150 pages or so.

My husband and kids are going out to the bakery to pick up some breakfast for me, and then they are all going to out for awhile. So, it should be nice and quiet around here.

Good luck to everyone! I'll be checking in every few hours today and can't wait to hear about what everyone is reading.

Welcome to the read-a-thon! Enjoy these first few hours-they'll fly by! I'm sure you'll do great. :D

I have North & South from the library right now-I can't wait to start reading it! Love the miniseries adaptation!

North and South is a book I have wanted to read for the longest time. I hope you are enjoying it and will be looking to your thoughts about it.
have fun reading and I hope you get to read all you set out to read :)

Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
May all the books appeal.
May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

Good luck today!
