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.


  1. I'm reading today too and have a mini-challenge up right now it you want to stop by.

  2. Nutella waffles? Yes, please! :) Glad to hear that you're enjoying your read-a-thon. Go #TeamTiger!

  3. Having someone read to you while you eat waffles and sip coffee????? Sounds heavenly. Hope your back to the books. Enjoy! #TeamTiger

  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! :)

  5. "Little by little does the trick." (Aesop)
    Or maybe we should say 'hour by hour' :)

  6. That's called being creative not cheating! Good luck for the rest of the readathon :) #TeamTiger

  7. I like your poem -- that works quite well!
