Read-a-thon Update: 4pm – 7:30pm (GMT)

Title of book since last update: The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte (in progress)

Thoughts on current read: I’m really enjoying the book. Like Really 🙂  And I’m so glad that I’m reading it for the read-a-thon coz I can really focus on it.  Perez-Reverte’s knowledge of the rare book dealing world is simply amazing.  But he is like this with all his book, I think.  His research is thorough.  Plus, he manages to weave in trips for his main characters to interesting places in Europe esp. in Spain and Portugal. I think more people should read his books.

Plan going forward: It’s getting to 8pm (GMT) here.  So I’m going to take a break, see my toddler off to bed, read some more and then sleep.  So I won’t post an update for a long while.  I will do so at around 6am (GMT) on sunday morning.

Thanks everyone for visiting. Happy reading and see you in the morning.



  1. I saw you won 2 books, congratulations!

    I am off to bed soon too. I admire you being able to participate with a toddler. I only have my boyfriend and his family to “look after”, so that’s totally different.

    I’ll be seeing you in the morning, probably.
