High Summer Read-a-Thon - Starting Line


This week, I'm participating in the High Summer Read-a-Thon hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading. It's a laid-back read-a-thon, which is the kind I like!

I actually started reading yesterday. So far, I've finished two books I had already started reading before the read-a-thon. Here's my full reading list. I'm not sure I'll get to everything but will try to keep this updated throughout the week.

50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James ~ finished the last 40 pages
15 Seconds by Andrew Gross ~ finished the last 150 pages
ec-o-nom-ics: a simple twist on normalcy by Kersten Kelly ~finished the last 100 pages
These Ties by William Bortz ~ 87 pages
Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill ~ reading now

I think that's about all I'll be able to handle since I'm working during the days! I'll be doing my reading in the evenings and on the weekend.

  1. So glad you're joining me for another read-a-thon! Great list. How funny that you have Kersten's book on your list. It's one of the read-a-thon giveaway prizes. =O) I'd like to know what you think of 50 Shades. That's one book I will not be reading, but I'm interested to hear what other's think. Hope you enjoy the reading this week!

    1. That's funny about Kersten's book! I read about half of it a couple weeks ago and then got bogged down in other books. So I'm hoping to read the last 100 pages during the read-a-thon this week.
