Readathon: Update 17 and Mini Challenge

1:30 AM (Monica):

There's a drabble Mini Challenge being hosted at Libri Touches. Having just spent the past hour reading fanfic, I'm loving me this challenge.

Behold!

My mother thinks that I have lost my mind. I can tell, because of the way she edges in and out of the room, staring right at me but occasionally flicking her eyes in the general direction of the five feet of books stacked precariously on the edge of our living room coffee table. “Do you want dinner?” “Are you going to bed any time soon?” “Honey, I know you have read Harry Potter one hundred and thirty times already. Put it down. Walk away.” Luckily I can’t hear her over the constantly turning pages. Oh, reading. I love you.

I've started on The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. This is yet another one that I know everyone has read but me. And I want to join that club! That club of cool people who have read The Lightning Thief!

So I shall!

  1. I've not read "The Lightning Thief" if it helps... I hope you're enjoying it, though!

    And whee! Fun drabble! I'm sure my mum might be like that if I'd stacked the books downstairs. "Argh! Get them OFF the table!" definitely.

  2. That actually does make me feel better! It's one of those books I'm almost ashamed to admit I haven't read, because my librarian friends rave about it like it's the second coming of YA literature. So knowing other people haven't picked it up yet is a help. ;)
