Dewey Read-A-Thon Update #3 (1400-1700)

So i’m getting more productive on my reading each block of 3 hours, but i haven’t yet quite got it flowing how I want. And of course, it doesn’t help that I decided to go and get a pedicure – but I did take my kindle with me and while I read most of the time, I did start to doze off a bit – so while my reading times were ok, my page count, probably not as much. lol.

For the last 3 hours, I focused on 2 more books on my in progress pile. The good thing is, once I finish these, I have met my goal of finishing 3-4 of them, and can start something new – yay!

In the last three hours, I read 74 pages of Ink – Amanda Sun. This has been loitering on the TBR pile for a while, but i’m really enjoying it – its a YA set in Japan with mythological elements (the Kami – who can bring drawings to life). I also read 90 pages of Strange Bird – Anna Jansson (translated by Paul Norlan) which is about a bird flu pandemic hitting a small island is Sweden. This author is the featured author in one of my Goodreads groups for the month and I’m enjoying it and will be looking for more by her in the future.
