Read-a-Thon: Hours 1 through 3 plus spine poetry!

 So far, I've 'finished' only one book, and I suppose it's a bit of a cheat: my wife has been reading Pride and Prejudice aloud to me for the last month, and so we spent this morning finishing it.  She read, and I noshed on nutella waffles and sipped coffee.  Quite the lady of leisure!

Now my wife is off doing some home-y chores and I'm feeling a tad bit guilty.  So I'm dithering a bit -- doing a few read-a-thon challenges -- before I settle down to some more reading.

To the right is my contribution to the Spine Poetry mini-challenge.  

For those of you participating in Read-a-Thon, what are you reading?  I'm going to do my second 'cheat' and finish up yesterday's read, Cars and Girls, and then pick up something new.

  4. I made my hubby do the dishes for me, I'm a bit sick so I used it as an excuse just to keep resting/reading. I hope you enjoy your books! :)

    Or maybe we should say 'hour by hour' :)
