Progress: Today I am at work so there won't be too much reading, but I did listen to a disc of Far Far Away on the ride into work this morning.

Mini Challenges:  Mini Challenge from Better Read than Dead

You're in a bookstore and you've just purchased 5 books you've been dying to read, when the apocalypse hits. (Zombie, Demons, Vampires, Dean Winchester vs. Sam Winchester (yes, I'm watching Supernatural reruns) I don't care what apocalypse). You've got one chance at survival, what 2 books do you take and what 3 other items do you take? 

Hm this is so hard.. items -- matches, a water bottle with a filtration system, and food i guess, normally I would like to have a weapon but come on I am pretty sure I would be a chicken and run away anyway to I will keep to supplies versus killing instruments...or I could use a heavy book... lol

Matches / Water Bottle / Food Image Sources
The two books part is even more difficult:  but if i had to choose I think it would be Lullaby by Chuck Palahnuiuk and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7) Lullaby

What is a Readathon?

A Readathon is where you set a goal for yourself to read more books that is beyond your average number of books you read. There is no minimum, it’s all up to you, and you can read any book that suits your fancy! Push yourself to get some of those books read that have been sitting on your shelves for awhile!
