Marvelous Middle Grade Read-a-thon Jan 2 - 8, 2012



It's time for the Marvelous Middle Grade Read-a-thon hosted by Just Deb! Here are the Signup and details. It will take place January 2 - 8, 2012.

Since I'm still awake and it's now Monday morning where I live, I might just get started! I'll do all my updates here in this post.

I'm starting with The Boggart by Susan Cooper
Start Day 1: page 1
EOD1: page 196 - finished!
Thoughts: Very cute! I'd definitely recommend. Look closely at the cover, I completely missed seeing the Boggart himself, hubby pointed him out to me!
Next up is The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
Started Day 2: page 1
EOD2: page 101
EOD3: page 212
EOD4: 270 - finished
Thoughts: Kept my attention all the way through, I couldn't wait to find out if they made it and what was outside! Definitely recommend and will be looking for the next one!
I read #1 long ago, have seen the movie, and have the Wii game, so I think it's time I continue reading the books, don't you? Guardians of Ga'Hoole #2: The Journey by Kathryn Lasky
Started Day 4: page 1
EOD4: page 75
EOD5: page 150
EOD6: page 180
EOD7: page 244 - finished


Total Pages Read: 710
Books Finished: 3

All done! I'm pleased with my reading, I managed an average of 101 pages a day over 7 days, and enjoyed all the books I chose. Thanks to our hostess Deb, and I'll be looking forward to joining in again sometime!
