The fist thing I was, was picking the books I wanted to read. Here’s my video where I talked about the books I was planning on reading for the readathon:

As you can see in my reading vlog, my “To Be Read” (or TBR) list went through the window. But at least something exciting happened (which can be seen towards the end of the video):

Do you ever take part in readathons? Do you think it’s fun?

It’s Monday! What are you reading?

I am in the middle of moving from Hammerfest, one of the most northern towns in the world, to Sandes, near Stavanger, so I don’t have much time for reading. However, I try to sneak in some reading time, and some of the books I’m reading now are:

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Glass Houses by Rachel Caine (The Morganville Vampires Book One)
Dagene før mai by Sanne Mathiassen
