Day 2 Thoughts:

I had to work today so considering eight hours were blocked out doing that, I don't think I did too badly. Luckily, at my job I'm able to do whatever I want if the phone isn't ringing. That means I got my writing done first and then read for about two hours yesterday. I finished Envy by Elizabeth Miles which was really good and I started The Assassin's Curse by Clarke. It's not what I was expecting but so far I like it. 

How did your second day go?


  1. mine was better than first day so i'm happy^^

  2. That's a lot of pages for day 2! Happy reading!

  3. *high five* Congrats on reading as much as you did given a work day - I know first hand how hard it can be! Cheers to your continued success. : )

  4. Yeah, ASSASSIN'S CURSE was really different than what I was expecting. But I really liked it! I just wish that the blurb hadn't given away so much. That sorta irritated me. lol

    Good luck reading! :)

  5. I had a slow day 2 too. About the exact same pages read too!


Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
