Once Upon a Read-a-Thon: Day 1 Update

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon is hosted by Lori at Pure Imagination, Angela at Reading Angel and Candace at Candace's Book Blog and you can find out more about it by clicking on the image. 

I originally planned to fill in an update before bed every night but I was so tired after finally putting my book down last night that it didn’t happen so here’s what I got up to yesterday! 

What I Read: Hunting Lila and 156 pages of Heist Society 
Number of Pages Read: 462 
Pages Read Total: 462 
Books Read Total: 1 
Reading Snacks: Today’s snacks of choice were cookies and popcorn which were the perfect sugar high I needed when I started to feel sleepy in the afternoon.

Non Reading Activity: Updates on twitter and generally stalking other readathoners to see how their doing, Mondays mini challenge, searching on youtube for old readathon videos for inspiration and an episode of friends over lunch the one where Joey finds Rachel’s dirty book I found a bookish episode to be fitting for the occasion ;)

Thoughts: I wish I’d taken part in a readathon sooner! They always looked like so much fun and they really are! I’m at a really nice point at the minute where I don’t feel like I’m rushing through books or forcing myself to read I’m just sailing along and enjoying every minute! I’m doing much better than I predicted and should have my second book (reading two books being my overall goal) finished today, let’s just hope I can keep it up! But overall? We’re off to a good start people!


  1. Congratulations Jess - you had such a great first day! Cookies and popcorn might be today's snacks of choice - I have popcorn, and some big gooey chocolate chip cookies arrived in the shopping last night, woohoo! :)

    I finished a book this morning and I'm halfway through another, so I'm still hoping to meet my goals by the end of tomorrow. Good idea on the YouTube read-a-thon videos by the way, sounds like it might be just what I need if I start to flag a bit! GOOD LUCK FOR TODAY!

  2. I love Friends soooo much and that episode is great! Anyway, you're doing great! I hope you love Heist Society. Hunting Lila sounds really good as well.

  3. I love Heist Society! I'm glad you're enjoying the readathon and you're doing great on your reading!! (You're snacks look yummy...)

  4. Congrats! I haven't read Hunting Lila, though I've heard great things about it, but I did really enjoy Heist Society. And your snacks have me seriously craving a bowl of popcorn, guess I know what I'll be munching on today. So far I've spent the majority of the read-a-thon checking out fellow read-a-thoners' blogs/posts/updates but I'm hoping to finish a couple books today. Happy reading!

  5. Friends! I love that show. I could really use some cookies right now. I've been so sleepy that I haven't gotten any reading done. Good luck!
