Hour 17 – Just keep reading reading reading

Dana back with you again for hour #17! How’s it going? It’s midnight here in Florida and I’m so enjoying our time together. In preparing for the day I set aside books from both my own shelves and also made a trip to the library. So tell me…did you hit up your own stacks or go to the library for your read a thon books?

  1. I’m going through my own stacks this time. My library is kinda far away, otherwise I would have stocked up but I definitely have enough in my backlog to take me into 20 more readathons.

    1. Oh yes! I told my two little boys that I needed to make a quick stop at the library and my 7 year old threw his hands at my shelves and said “can’t you read all those!” LOL

  2. Both. A few library books and some from my own collection. So far I’ve only read the library books, but I think up next will be a short one from my stash. I’m also on the east coast and will have to sleep soon. Plan on getting up before the sun to finish out though!

    1. I like having a combination of both. Gives me more choices. Have a good nap and we can’t wait for you to come back. You’re doing great and a little nap will really help!

  3. The day before I went to the comic book store to get a book that just sounded too good not to get for the readathon. Aside from that I stayed with my own personal TBR pile that is slowly overtaking my dresser.

    1. Fun! Having something that you really want to read helps a ton. I’ve discarded so many today that just haven’t caught my attention.

  4. I went to the library for my books and reserved most of them in advance. I got a little carried away and got more books than I’ll probably be able to read, but I just love going to libraries and walking away with a huge stack of books.

  5. I went to the library, I wanted to pick books off the shelf but either I was not in the mood for them or they had too many pages. I have one novella on my kindle that I’m going to read tho.

    1. I got a big stack from my library today as well as a big stack of my own and none really stuck. I’m still having fun reading though.

  6. I’ve got one hard bound book containing 7 Jane Austen novels. I have based my whole day on that. Even brought out my Jane Austen action figure (with quill pen and writing desk.)
