Bout of books Day 1 update

Doing this from my phone and will add links etc later.
As expected I did not read too much yesterday, partly due to studying and partly because my sister arrived with my new nephew.
I did however, read a very little bit. I started with a book called cracks by Sheila Kohler.
Books finished today: 0
Pages read today: 41
Today in 6 words: #work, study, baby, couldn't read much!

Bout of books readathon starting post

I am doing my start up post tonight, since I probably wont get a chance tomorrow, then I know it is up!

Time devoted to reading: 
I commit to reading something every day for the entire week, but realistically it will probably be limited until Wednesday. I have an exam first thing Wednesday morning, and then will be at work the rest of the week.

Read  a minimum of 2 books (due to above exam limitations) but would like to read 3 which will bring my total for the year to 90, only 10 away from meeting my goal of 100 books this year.

Possible books to read:
To dream of the dead - Phil Rickman
Lost City of Z - David Grann
Leaving - Karen Kingsbury
The last Oracle - James Rollins
Labyrinthe - Kate Mosse
Break no Bones - Kathy Reichs (will be starting this one tomorrow)
The return of the King - J.R.R Tolkien
Crack - Sheila Kohler
Treasure Island - Robert Louis Stevenson

I will update in daily posts so that I can do it from my phone quickly if I dont get much computer time. If you would like to check out the readathon then click on the button at the top of the post. Go on, you were going to read anyway!

Bout of Books Readathon and taking a break

I totally missed the last readathon I signed up for. Had so much going on that week even though my daughter was away that I didnt get a chance to read. However, I have signed up for the above readathon which occurs during the week break between my two sets of exams, so that should be a nice destresser!
Since I have 3 exams coming up over the next week I wont be bloggin at all until those are finished.
