Read-a-Thon: Deep in the Heart of Jamestown

October 24, 2009 at 6:26 pm (24-Hour Read-a-Thon)

deweys readathonbutton I’m not quite as far into The Turn of the Screw as I had planned–it’s my busy time at work, and I’ve had a caller from Atlanta who defines loquacious (she was even describing her luggage to me in minute detail!)–but I am almost exactly halfway through. That means only 44 pages since my last update, but I shall prevail!

It’s a perfect autumnal read, and I wish I could be cozily enjoying it at home with the dark chill night outside! Thank you, all you lovely cheerleaders; it is so heartening to read your comments. And Laura, who is planning to pick up The Turn of the Screw, too: I hope you enjoy it as I have!

260 pages down, plenty to go

    The night is still young! Good luck with the rest of your challenge! I’m anxious to get back to my books. 🙂

    The Turn of the Screw is short, but you must read it pacefully (is that even a word? is it so late I’m already making up words???). I mean, sloooowly, and enjoying every minute of it.

    Hope you’re having a nice time!

    Bummer about the having to work. Glad to see the whole working thing isn’t keeping you down, though! =)

    Keep up the great reading!

    Way to hang in there! Over halfway through – keep it up!

    The Turn of the Screw – I haven’t thought about that book in years and years! Good choice!
