WINTER'S RESPITE / WHAT ARE YOU READING? 2.1.14

Extra Duty Post 
covering Read-a-Thon wrap-up,


Musing Mondays on what I've been reading !

My final wrap up post for 
Winter's Respite Read-a-thon 
at Michelle's
*
A Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon
 
Have had a busy week writing material for some local 
human rights issues,
then back to the books to keep up my read-a-thon motivation.
Once I commit, I'm into my own 'want to read' stash 
or books for review - which, of course, is great.  
And definitely greater results than randomness for me.
As a result I've completed 1129 book pages this week.
{Don't ask how many dishes washed though}

I'm very pleased Michelle has begun a 4th year of hosting 
her Seasons of Reading read-a-thons.
She excels at it.  Thank you , Michelle!
Here is my final wrap up post ~

Currently Reading?
Yep - another mystery.  
It's what works well with my brain I guess!
Always love challenges to thinking...
Plus, a real fan of Hamish Macbeth in this #10 
of MC Beaton's series .
{See all my reviews linked in Book Review tab above}

And as I've just completed the Read-a-thon, 
not sure what I'll leap into
following this audiobook choice . . .
Always something to grab my attention!
*
Plus a creative WIP is my
ELUSIVE HOPE Pinterest Board 
of the novel by MaryLu Tyndall 
- swashbuckling pirate author extraordinaire !!

While I like mysteries, I have never read anything by M. C. Beaton. I'll have to add that author to my list. Come see my Monday Report here. Happy reading!

Wow! That's a lot of pages read. Great job! And thanks for the shout out. It's still hard to believe it has been four years since I started hosting them.

Hope to see you in the Spring for the next one. =O)
