Read-a-thon 3 hours


3 1/2 hours in

The Cradle****+ by Patrick Somerville (2009) 204 pages hardcover.

Completed, very good story, highly recommended. Saw it reviewed at Bermudaonion's. Thank you K.

My blog was spammed since the read-a-thon began and it's taken some time to clean up the mess.

Now reading The Sum of Our Days by Isabel Allende.

Is there a central location for the read-a-thon? I did sign up somewhere but can't remember now. And I read for 18 hours in the one last autumn but never got in on any of the giveaways because I didn't know where they were going on. Hopefully a cheerleader will come by and let me know. Thanks in advance.
