This week definitely got busy. Didn’t read any hard copy books except the fre short stories from The Brothers Grimm Collection. Maybe the next read-a-thon I participate in will fall in a more calm period of my life. Overall I am pleased with the progress I made this week.

My Brothers Grimm collection has an orange cover, so I completed that challenge. I also listened to at least 150 pages worth of book on some days. Since I don’t have a hard copy of the book I have no way of converting what I listened to into a total number of pages.

Falling for Autumn 2.0 Read-A-Thon

I have decided to participate in a read-a-thon for the first time ever. I am kind of excited and nervous at the same time.

I believe I will try to incorporate an audio book and The Complete Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales collection that I have to help break things up a bit.

The main challenges I would like to complete are:

  • Read 3 books
  • Read 150 pages a day
  • Read a book outside of my comfort zone

If I am able to complete all 6 challenges associated with this read-a-thon that would be lovely.

Here is a blurb from A cup of coffee and a book about the read-a-thon:
“Falling for Autumn 2.0 is read-a-thon where we welcome the Fall/Autumn by reading as many books as possible during a week. It’ll take place from September 21 to 27, with daily guest-posts, interviews, challenges and giveaways. Everyone is free to enter by signing-up and sharing the official blurb by leaving a link to this post on your blog, Goodreads, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr or YouTube. For more information, please visit A Cup of Coffee and a Book

Are you taking part in the read-a-thon? Let me know in the comments!
