Read-a-Thon: Bout of Books Day 1

Bout of Books Read-a-Thon

So here's my first day's post..*derp* I'm starting now at (Fill in time) and will read when I can all day long! I do work and have to keep this darn place cleaned up! So I will take what I can.

Monday 1/7/13:
Good morning folks! I'm just about to start up my reading for the day! Gonna smush in some before work, after work, and before bed! Probably some whilst at the gym too (if we manage to go!) So what about you guys?

Is my friend this morning y'all! So HARD! lol

Daily Challenge(s) from The Book Barbies
You have made a scientific discovery (who knew you were so good at science?!) on how to bring fictional characters to life. The problem? The method still isn't *perfect,* so you can only bring two people to life, and they must return to the land of fiction in 30 days. Who will you choose as your bestie and your love interest for that one splendid month? (Feel free to add pictures if you like, but they are not required.)

My response: "Derp!"
Cat and Bones (from Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series) because like for reals y'all. The party don't start til Bones walks in and is all ripping off Spike (from Buffy) but I totally DON'T Care! They are cute yet fierce. I love their chemistry! Plus they are both hot, so that totally helps! lol I'd like to be friends with them and all their friends.

  1. Well hey there! I too am a COFFEE FIEND this morning, yet still haven't managed to do much beyond goal post-hopping and MAYBE reading a teeny bit of Jane Eyre. Though this is partially because of these annoying things called customers that keep coming in and WRECKING IT. As soon as today's over I've got the rest of the week off so I'll keep going! :)

    Now, what will my challenge answer be I wonder?

  2. Bones is very like Spike at first lol :) I really like the Night Huntress series! Great pick!

    My bookish BFF and BF are here if you'd like a look :)

  3. Good luck with the read-a-thon! Isn't it annoying how work gets in the way of our reading? *L*

  4. 15 pages is still progress! I hope you can get more reading in as the week goes on. :) And yay for coffee!!

    Have fun!
