Hour 24: Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon: October 2010

Posted by Ann Roberts at 5:00 AM 2 comments
Lesson Learned: Having a big dinner and wine don't mix with a 24 hour readathon. Fell asleep at some point...probably not too long after I started reading again. Just woke up. *sigh*

Congrats to those who made it! I'll plan better next spring!!

OMG!! I just had the most amazing food and *cough* *several* bottles of wine. I am no longer confident of my ability to make it through the night this time. Anyway...I'm back and will be starting my next book.

First, I want to say THANKS to everyone who has stopped by the Noumena12 Book Blog to give encouragement and cheer me on! To my official cheerleaders, I will be offline for a while as I have a dinner party to attend. I'm not planning on letting amazing food and wine slow me down when I return! Off to cheer a few other on!

Outlaw Marriage

Laurie Paige

Start: 20101009 13:11

End: 20101009 16:33

Pages: 256

Description: "What better way to conquer your opponent than to get extremely close to him?"

Hope Baxter had teethed on stories of Kincaid family corruption. So when her ruthless father demanded his lawyer daughter wrench prime land from the Kincaids' grasp...she went in for the kill. But Hope underestimated her opponent--a dust-on-his-leather-chaps cowboy, Collin Kincaid. His weapon was his searing kiss, and Hope was defenseless against it. Collin unearthed Hope's vulnerability--her secret desire for a family. But following her dream would mean the ultimate defection. Could they forget their families' feuds and love simply as man and woman...husband and wife?

Comments: Crazy as it is…I'm engrossed in the Montana Mavericks characters. And they keep coming and coming and coming.

My Give a Damn's Busted

Carolyn Brown

Start: 20101009 0800

End: 20101009 1236

Pages: 148

Description: You won't want to miss this boot scootin' contemporary full of sexy cowboys and sassy women. (The Romance Studio 20100924)

The third tale in Brown's sassy contemporary romance series (I Love This Bar, 2010) set at the Honky Tonk continues her home-grown, humorous, country-music-themed stories, with Jo Dee Messina's popular song running throughout. (Lynn Welch Booklist )

Brown's wit and humor shine... [a] zany and fast-paced tale and lovable characters. (Sarah Eisenbraun RT Book Reviews )

Want a book filled with red-hot chemistry, a nasty antagonist, and a rollicking honky tonk? Then you need to read My Give a Damn's Busted. (The Long and Short of It )

Comments: I'm not really a fan of country music and honky tonks. Heck, I don't think I've ever been to a honky tonk. But I really enjoy these books!

I always get off to a slow start. I have appointments Saturday mornings...while I can do some reading...I don't get a lot done. But I'm home now...and going to hunker down for the next few hours. Hoping DH is bringing lunch! :)

NOTE: "Hunker down?" Must be because of the book I'm reading! :)

It's Almost Time! Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon: October 2010

I can't believe that it is time to start again!! I'm just getting myself set up and ready to go. Thanks to my bookfriend Shaunesay for helping me out with a new template this year.

I'm going to start by finishing the book that I am currently reading. I'm about 61% through 384 pages. So I'll get to count 149 pages in my total page count...but I won't count the book for the readathon.

I've also got a commitment tonight so I'll be missing in action for a few hours around 5:30pm EST. But I'll try to make up for it by reading longer than scheduled 24 hours.

Almost time to get started!
