Mid-event Survey

1) How are you doing? Sleepy? Are your eyes tired?

Not sleepy at all. It's almost 3am here, but woke up at 3pm, so I can stay awake. My eyes are tired. I will take a break and take my dog out soon.

 

2) What have you finished reading?

I have finished Frankenstein, but I started reading it few days ago and I had only 30ish pages left. I haven't finished anything other than that, but I keep switching between The Great Gatsby, Cat's Cradle and The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe. I also have intention to start reading Chronicle of a Death Untold at some point, when I'm finished with Gatsby.


3) What is your favorite read so far?

I've only finished Frankenstein. Soon for the others. But I enjoy all of them.

 

4) What about your favorite snacks?

I only had peanut butter as a snack.


5) Have you found any new blogs through the readathon? If so, give them some love!

Yes, I bookmarked some.

Me, reading Poe. It's Oc-POE-ber!

The Book trailer Mini Challenge

 

Well, this is the movie trailer of The Book Thief. There are many fan made book trailers all over the internet. The Book Thief isn't a favourite of mine. It was a 'meh' for me. But I really liked the movie trailer. I think this might be one case, where, for me, the film could be better than the book.

Through the Tea Leaves Mini Challenge

 

Hehehe, I'm so bad at this. I just made a cup of green tea, so this mini challenge was a must!

 

This is Frankenstein's Creature :)

5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to?
