How Much Did You Read?

So, not as productive reading-wise as the last readathon, but the few books I read were awesome. How have you done? This past week I've been participating in Kristen's Huge TBR Readathon (Mac 2, as I refer to it) over at Bookworming in the 21st Century, and while not the quantity of the last readathon, I really had lots of fun. Plus, being in a book minded mood, thanks to said readathon, two of the days, when I had a headache and didn't feel up to reading, I cleaned my books and organized shelves, which has been a long time in the coming!

So what have I read you ask?
Hare-Raising Tale: A Fletcher Mystery and The Principal's on the Roof: A Fletcher Mystery by Elizabeth Levy (a sort of revisioning of my favorite series as a kid, the Something Queer Mysteries, for a younger audience, also a slightly more "pc" series title.)

Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett (The 23 Discworld novel and the 6th Witches novel, I just love Terry Pratchett and there's nothing I love better than the Witches, so a perfect read!)

Vertigo by Boileau-Narcejac (Otherwise known as Enter the Dead, this was the inspiration for Hitchcock's classic Vertigo and I have been curious to read it for many years. It was interesting, but I will always love the film more... and for more Hitchcock, wait till next month is all I'm going to say...)


Oh I love Pratchett. I read this book last winter and loved it.
To answer your question, not only are you a consistent reader you are a gifted reviewer. I always look forward to what you have to say.

Why thank you so much SariJ! I just love Pratchett, I just can't get enough.

Nice! I've only read.. two pratchett books? I think.. My mom adores them tho! Great job on the readathon!

You had fun with this readathon AND you uncluttered your bookshelves. That's great!
