Read-A-Thon Progress Report

Once Upon a Read-A-Thon Progress Report #1

Yesterday, I read Athena by George O'Conner and started Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. I have 50 pages left of Speak and will finish it today.

My daughter read two books yesterday, Love This Dog and Hate That Cat! by Sharon Creech. I am so proud of her and more importantly she is proud of herself for finishing two whole books in one day. Hopefully she will stay motivated today.

My son was busy all day at church and Boy Scouts and so he had no time to read. Hopefully he will make up for lost time today.

Today's reading goals include finishing SPEAK and reading about 50 pages of Moby Dick. I also hope to begin reading Every Last One by Anna Quindlan. I plan to participate in one of the mini-challenges and pick up two new bookshelves while packing for Scout camp. Oh my!


  1. I have never had any interest in reading Moby Dick. Though I probably should. I have trouble getting into classics.

    Isn't it awesome when you little ones follow you into the land of reading?

  2. Finished the book, "Keep You Eyes on the Prize," started another book about the Civil Right Movement.
