Winter's Respite Readathon

A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon is hosted by Michelle of Seasons of Reading and kicked off yesterday. I'll be working on readalong books (Persuasion and Les Miserables) as well as finishing up Wiley Cash's A Land More Kind Than Home. 

I've done fairly well with the readathon. I did get the reading of Persuasion done that I wanted to get done, although I'm still lagging a week behind. I'll try to finish that up today and I'll be done with that readalong. I finished A Land More Kind Than Home (read it, read it, read it) and I've read 175 pages of Les Miserable. I'd call that a successful readathon, even if I'm STILL not caught up with the readalong for Les Mis. Dear god, did Victor Hugo like to go on. Anything you want to know about the Napoleonic wars? I hear that I've got a long section coming up about the sewers of Paris. There's something to look forward to!


  1. I have heard this is an amazing book, and I have it here. I don't know what I am waiting for! Good luck with this challenge!

  2. Happy reading! Hope you have a great readathon. I'm too mired in grading for readathons now.

  3. A Land More Kind than Home is on my desk calling out to be read. Thanks for the tip.

  4. Sounds like fun! So curious to hear how you like the Wiley Cash - have heard nice things about it...on the want-to-read list for sure.
