Once Upon a Read-a-Thon--Can I read 7 books in 3 Days?-I DID IT!!!!

Thursday, July 11, 2013



It's OVER and I actually completed what I set out to do in the fourth annual Once Upon a Read-a-Thon hosted by Lori at Pure Imagination, Angela & Loretta at Reading Angels and Candace's Book Blog. I did not however enter any of the mini challenges--between mystery shopping, bookkeeping client and commenting on others posts------BUT I really read 7 Books in 3 days!! My next personal challenge to myself is to actually put reviews of these books up on Amazon and Goodreads.

First off I'd like you to know that these were books that I got because I really wanted to read them--except for one of them which I did say I would put a review up on my blog-they came from my TBR list and I can honestly say I enjoyed every one of them whether it was a short novella or a full length novel. AND except for the the book I will be reviewing on my blog--I read them all on my computer--my poor eyes and back!! There are actually 8, but one was so short (Free Fall)I felt guilty--



To Catch a Bad Guy - Mary Astor (I really enjoyed this one!!)

Desperate Measures - Candace Hern (if you like Regency Romance this is short and sweet!)

Free Fall-A Prelude to Hidden Order - Brad Thor (I think I may end up reading the full book on this one)

Rational Polemics - Richard Todd Devens (I will be reviewing this one on my blog)

The Taming of Ryder Cavanaugh (a Cynster Novel)- Stephanie Laurens (I LOVE ALL of the Cynster novels!!)

Kidnapped - Christina Dodd (This was a really good read--short and would be perfect for a read on the beach!)

All for Hope - Olivia Hardin ( A feel good book with a heartwarming ending)

Jane's Melody - Ryan Winfield ( A love story you won't want to miss)

Well done you !! I think what you need is a nice long rest after all that xx I like the sound of All For Hope.

Ashley Hatten said...

wow awesome, my grandmother whom is in her 70's can read like 2 books a day. Congrats!

There is no way I could do that with 2 toddlers. Probably not anyway. I am not a very fast reader though I love to read. The best I've done is to read a thick book (like Harry Potter or Twilight) in about 3 days.

Pam said...

Congratulations! That is a big accomplishment. I like to read but I never make the time for it and I need to.

HungryLittleGirl said...

I love reading and I wish I would have more time to do it. I need about 1 week for a book.

Cindy Batchelor said...

This sounds great! thanks so much for sharing! xo xo

Tess said...

Woot! Woot!
Yay for you! I should try completing tasks I start. lol

Pam said...

Woohoo! Well done! I don't think I could get seven books read in three days even though I love to read.

Chubskulit Rose said...

I think I would love to read the Kidnapped and All for Hope.

Kim Croisant said...

Leigh @ OneandOneEqualsTwinFun said...

Love reading and I have a book right now that is preventing me from all duties ;) I can't put it down. Seven books - that's quite the record!

Fina Jenny said...

you have a nice list though, i will try to read some of them in the future..

Lexie Lane said...

Wow! Congratulations! You're a speed reader! I wish I could be! I struggle to read one book in one week! Sometimes one month! lol!

Christy Maurer said...

Way to go! If my internet would go out I could get a lot more read lol!

Cyndie said...

7 books in 3 days is quite a feat.

Jennifer Williams said...

7 books in 3 days, that is impressive. I am surprised you had time for anything else. I would love to have an entire day uninterrupted to curl up with a good book. Three days- I am jealous.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Wow! 7 books in 3 days! That is great MikiHope. I need to find time to read more books. I have several books on my Kindle and recently I bought 2 novels by my favourite author Danielle Steel. You have inspired me to start reading this weekend!

Jennifer - The Deliberate Mom said...

Wow - you have earned the most "avid reader award" in my books!

I take a month to read a book LOL. (I hang my head in shame).

Wishing you a lovely day.
xoxo

Wow, good run.
I have my book app on my phone so I can take it with me anywhere. I read while waiting at the feed store, bank etc.

Rebecca Moree said...

I haven't read any of those yet, but I will definitely be looking into them! So far I am loving your blog and getting a heads up on some good reads!

Savingwith Saveone said...

Wow that is amazing to me. I have a hard time getting all the way through one book without skipping around. I don't have the patience but this is something to really be proud of.

Hobbies on a Budget said...

Great job on the book challenge! I love reading but 7 books in 3 days? That's an amazing accomplishment!

Melinda Dunne said...

Wow that is incredible! Congrats on reading that much in 3 days. I love to read also but I don't have enough time to read that much in 3 days. My son could do it though.

Jenna said...

That is an awesome! Congrats!

Cynthia Landrie said...

I am very impressed with the amount of reading that you did. I don't think I could ever read that much in the short amount of time you did! Congrats on making your goal

jheylo said...

Wow! That's a lot of readings right there :)

nova hedges said...

wow..that's a lot...you must read very fast. congratulation you did it.

Victoria said...

I have to check out some of these books. However, there is no way my boys would allow me to read that many books that quick.

Sofia @ From PDX with Love said...

WOW, just wow!! How did you do it?! I have a hard time reading a book in two days (mostly due to having a 5 and a 3 year old boys). Great job!! I am quite impressed :)

April M. said...

Wow! That's amazing. I wish I have the time to read even just 1 in a month.:(

Marms said...

That's wonderful! I admire you!

Becca Wilson said...
