Read-A-Thon: Hour 9 Update

So here we are, a good handful of hours into the Read-A-Thon! I’m still plugging away at the hilarity that is SVH: Mystery Date, and it’s getting better and better. A choice out-of-context quote:

“The wind is blowing a lot more than just our hair,” Quarter said.

You said it, Quarter! Now let’s check in with Jessica and see how she’s feeling about Charlotte Sometimes.

Mia: How far have you gotten in your book?
Jessica: To page 85!
M: I’m on page 92 of Mystery Date myself. (We haven’t read very much because we had to go pick up Jessica’s cat Nousha from the vet! Shout-out to all the cats in this house!) What do you think Nousha would be reading if she were participating?
J: Probably something with fish in it, she likes fish. One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish!
M: How are you feeling?
J: Fine. I mean, I’m still tired, but less tired than I was right when I woke up.
M: Are you still doing well with reading and Charlotte Sometimes?
J: Yeah, I mean, I’m distracted by Nousha and wanting to make sure she’s okay.

Okay, Jessica’s a terrible interviewee so I’m going to have her fill out the update survey instead, and I will do that too.

Mia:
‪Title of book(s) read since last update:‬ Sweet Valley High: Mystery Date, “by” Francine Pascal but really written by Kate William

‪Running total of pages read since you started:‬ 96

‪Mini-challenges completed: ‬4, I think
‪Other participants you’ve visited: Word Lily, A Literary Odyssey, Book Journey, BrownGirl BookSpeaks ‬

  1. I’ve never read a SVH book, and I’ve always had the feeling that I’ve been missing out on an important part of my culture. Maybe next Readathon.
    You’re doing great, and it looks like you’ve not only been reading, but participating in a lot of activities! Keep up the good work!
    Happy Reading,
    Bybee (cheerleader)
