Readathon: Hour 3

Pages read: 94

Finished When My Name Was Keoko. This novel is darker and more dramatic than the other two novels I've read by Linda Sue Park. It's geared more towards YA readers. There's a well-written "Author's Note" at the end of the book which goes more into detail about some of the characters and events touched on in the novel as well as an excellent bibliography.

I'm going to round out the rest of this hour by visiting some other readers and see how they're doing.

Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
May all the books appeal.
May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

Good luck today!
