Read-a-Thon: Hours 3 & 4

October 18, 2008

So far, so good!

I’m currently at page 242 of Fablehaven by Brandon Mull. So far, it’s a lot like The Spiderwick Chronicles, except geared for a slightly older audience. Quick-reading, creepy, fun, with satyrs that will trade C batteries for gold so they can watch their forbidden portable TV.

Finishing this will probably take me another hour, plus I should probably get out of bed at some point and do stuff like eat lunch and put in my contacts (ignore the whole bit about that happening 2 hours ago). :)


From XKCD, one of my favorite nerdy webcomics.

    Oh Fablehaven sounds good, it’s in this month’s Scholastic school book order so I may have to add it to my list :)

    hahaha :D I love xkcd, and that’s a particularly great one. My morning routine resembles that a lot :P

    I’m glad you’re enjoying the book!

    Congratulations, you rock! Ugh, my son would be embarrassed if he just read that I wrote “you rock”! :D I am impressed at the number of pages you’ve read already. Actually the book sounds really interesting. I am anxious to hear more about it. I’ll stop by later and check out your thoughts on it.

    Eating and contact lenses are always good. I prefer staying in bed though. Good job!

    That’s a lot of pages! I am so slow. :)
    I have never heard of FableHaven. May have to get a copy of that.

    xkcd is one of my favs, too. Do you read Questionable Content? It’s less geeky and more music-snobby, but I enjoy it.
    Happy reading! :)
