  1. Welcome to the read-a-thon! I do hope you’re enjoying it so far. I’ve been busy with the last days of an out of town guest visiting so I’m really behind visiting blogs. Hope to see you around on Twitter. I’m going to try to be actively monitoring on and off for the rest of the read-a-thon.

    I really must check out the Goodreads group you mentioned, Dead Writers Society. Sounds very interesting. 🙂

      Busy lives do get in the way of reading and other bookish related activities! I didn’t get to read a single page on day two, however by the end of day three I was able to complete the goals for The Young Elites. Do stop by and join me on Goodreads, I’m one of the moderators (bookworm).
