I've tracked a total of rougly 8 hours complete. Not a big contender this year, just enjoying my time around books and book on tape.
I finished a lovely book last night - A Pearl Amoung Princes by Coleen Murtagh Paratore. Princes intrigue me and I picked it up because it looked like J-Fiction and not YA. But it is very apporpriate YA and not Juvenile Fiction. It's a light romance for everyone who loves a good princess and prince story. The author also included bits of classic nursery rhymes which I thought was delightful.
It's a great day to read! What books are you reading today?
I've been taking my time to read and enjoy this year's 48-Hour Book Challenge. I've been reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and The Prophet of Yonwood by Jeanne DuPrau. I've also been enjoying Why Don't Your Eyelashes Grow? by Beth Ann Ditkoff, M.D. It's a been fun and I'm looking forward to finishing these and starting many others.
