Readathon time! Sort of. This is just for me, and I'll keep it to a single post. It's also going to be quite a short one, in comparison -- just six hours, noon to 6pm (GMT). Feel free to join me, whenever you like and for however long. I'll be on MSN and AIM, if you have those, and chattering away on twitter, too.

(There was just a pause then as I tried to figure out how to convey that I meant the 12:00 that happens when it's light as opposed to the midnight version. Noon didn't occur to me, for some reason, until I'd googled. Oh, brain.)

Planning to read anything from this selection:
-Boneshaker (Cherie Priest).
-Death Claims (Joseph Hansen).
-Troublemaker (Joseph Hansen).
-The Art of Racing in the Rain (Garth Stein).
-Roman de Brut (Wace).
-Brut (Layamon).

Probably not all of the above, but starting with a few chapters of Boneshaker and then probably steaming right through Death Claims. I'll probably update every hour or so, possibly on the half-hour, if you're interested.

12:33: Read a couple of chapters of Boneshaker -- for some reason, I tend to read it in four chapter chunks -- and now I'm reading Death Claims (Joseph Hansen). I should get some food, actually. I had breakfast, but I need lunch. Or I could eat some thai sweet chilli crisps...

13:21: Still reading Death Claims. Wow, I do love Dave. Doug complains just once about all the memories of Rod, and Dave does whatever he wants. Not in a bad way, in a... "we're going to make this work, I think you're worth this" way.

14:18: Finished reading Death Claims. Done a review here. Think I'll go back to Boneshaker for another four chapters, now.

15:21: Slightly distracted by housemates getting back from church and shopping. Finished my four chapters of Boneshaker, though. Think I'll read Troublemaker now. If I can finish off that and Boneshaker before six, I'll call it a good day.

16:28: Reading Troublemaker. Bit more than halfway through, I think. I'll finish that before the six hours are up, dunno about Boneshaker. But I'll definitely finish Boneshaker this evening, either way.

Not so enamoured of Boneshaker that I want to hurry to read Dreadnought and Clementine. Maybe that'll change when I get to the end of it.

17:56: Posted a review of Troublemaker, here. Only managed two books today, and eight chapters of Boneshaker, but then it was only six hours. I'll probably do this again sometime soon!

Huh, I didn't realize that there were other books by Boneshaker's author in that verse. -goes to see if the library has them-

Don't mind if they don't have the same characters. One of my universes has novels planned in a similar way.

Had to get one of the books via inter-library loan though and well, the other one has two other people who requested before me. So I'm going to have to wait anyways.
