#FrightFall Readathon Master Post
Here we go! Time to start the #FrightFall Readathon. This goes for one week, but I'm going to be even more relaxed about it than I usually am with these sort of events. The one rule is that I must read at least one scary book - which isn't a problem. I have several sitting on my shelf that will work wonderfully! I will update this post everyday with my progress....
Monday: I started this readathon off with a bang - I forgot to bring a book to work to read at lunch! Thankfully, I am a librarian, and a couple holds I placed came in that morning. I grabbed I Survived the Attacks of September 11, 2001 and read that - even though it scared me to do so, I kept it together - and will be talking about it with my son once he finishes reading it. Then, I picked up and read half of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving. I am kind of familiar with the story, but had never read it!
Tuesday: Not such a great reading day for me.... I had a ton of stuff to do in the morning, and it was my night to work at the library. I was completely exhausted by the time I came home, it was all I could do to finish The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I thought it was going to be scarier than it was! Oh, well.
Wednesday: Tonight I had a work thing at night. So I didn't read as much as I would have liked ... but I did start The Woman in Black by Susan Hill.
Thursday: Busy night tonight, and I crashed pretty early (um, like at 8:45pm!) but I still got a chunk of The Woman in Black read - getting creepy! (For real, not like Sleepy Hollow).
Friday: I actually came home early from work today because I wasn't feeling well. I never leave work, so that was kind of a big thing. But it also meant that I really wasn't up to focusing too much on reading. I did get a few chapters in, but the movie night with my kids was more in line with my head space.
Saturday: I spent most of the day lounging, napping, doing laundry, and reading. I finished The Woman in Black - VERY creepy and got half way into Saving Francesca which is for the Teen Book Group at the library that I will be moderating in a couple weeks.
Sunday: Well, I didn't read a single page today. Instead, I spent some good time in the gym and went to a friends house to watch Football. So no reading, but still a fantastic Sunday!
That pretty much wraps up FrightFall for this year. I'm really glad that I used this readathon to focus on creepy books that I hadn't read yet! I hope everyone else enjoyed their radathons as well!
