High Summer Read-a-Thon: down to the wire

It's Sunday morning, and the last day of the High Summer Read-a-Thon. I was able to read quite a lot yesterday, starting out by staying in bed until I finished reading An Incomplete Revenge. Then more dedicated reading time as hubby drove us both down to my son's house to keep the grandchildren for a couple of hours. We're talking at least one hour each way.

After finishing An Incomplete Revenge, I picked up The Hunger Games which I had set aside on Thursday when the Kindle battery ran out. I read in the car, during both lunch and supper, and then took the book to bed with me. When I finally gave in and turned the lights off, I was on page 350 of 374. So, the first thing that I did this morning was to turn the Kindle on and finish the book. It was very good—which is what most reviewers have been saying—and I'm glad I have both sequels on hand.

But before plunging back into the world of The Hunger Games, I'm going to read a couple of swap books. I'm offering Nutty as a Fruitcake by Mary Daheim in a Christmas in July swap over at BookObsessed, so I'm going to see how far I get into that book by midnight tonight.
