Now moving on to my update from Saturday:
I was gone almost all day Saturday out of town visiting with family, which means I didn't get as much reading in as I'd wanted to, but it was still a decent day. I started the day on page 119 of The Strength of Ballerinas. Here's how it ended:

Number of participating blogs I visited: 14 plus everyone who participated in the challenge and some Twitter responses.
Books I read: finished The Strength of Ballerinas and got to 20% of Someone Like You
Books I finished: 1
The Strength of Ballerinas

Total number of finished books: 6.5
Titles of finished books: Reign of Shadows, The Christmas Cowboy, Leaving Liberty, The Better Man, Sleeping Beauty and the Beast, Salt & Storm, The Strength of Ballerinas
Reign of Shadows (Descendants #3) The Christmas Cowboy (Rodeo Romance, #1) Leaving Liberty The Better Man (Chicago Sisters) 
Sleeping Beauty and the Beast Salt & Storm The Strength of Ballerinas
I'm really close to my goal of at least eight books. I also need to read two sequels and have only read half of one. These two are next on my list and they're both sequels, so that would finish up my reading goals:
Tide to Atonement (Pawleys Island Paradise, #2) Remember Me (Find Me, #2)

Okay. Now it's your turn. Use the linky or comments below to tell us how you're doing half-way through the read-a-thon.


  1. You've read loads! I'm really enjoying the challenge so far, thanks!

    Congrats on being so close to meeting your goals! Yay!!

  3. I read 3 books so far, I haven't had as much reading time as hoped! Busy weekends this month. :)

  4. I won't be able to do a post, but I read 3 books on my list yesterday, bringing my total to 13.

    Wow! You're really working through your TBR list! Hope this week goes just as well for you :)

  6. Congratulations! You're almost there! :)
    I've linked up, but I'm not doing as good as you :(

  7. I just uploaded a mid-point post at http://elsireads.blogspot.com/2014/09/tackle-your-tbr-status-update-3.html I'm still reading the same two books, but I'm really enjoying the read-a-thon. I hope I find time to participate in a challenge or two this week.

  8. I'm glad you're having fun and I do hope you get to do a challenge or two. I had fun with the ones I'm hosting. :)

  9. I'm rather surprised at how well I'm doing. We'll see if I can keep it up.

    Thank goodness it's not a competition between everyone on how much we can read. We all have our own goals. :)

  10. You too, Jessica! I hope you get at least one more of those books read. You have such great choices!

  11. That is so awesome, Chanpreet! Seriously. You rock!!! :D

  12. I thought I'd get more done today than I did. We've still got six days ahead of us.

  13. Thanks, Karsyn! I do love to read. :)

  14. So glad you're having fun! I have so many books I need to read. It's crazy! I'm hoping to tackle quite a few more this week.

  15. I have read all of 23 pages so far. I knew I was going to be busy this week, but I didn't realize just how busy. Hopefully I can find a little more time to read in the coming week. I know it is still possible to meet my goal, but I'm going to have to push hard.

  16. Oh, man! That's hard when you want to read and can't get to it. I've had plenty of those days. I hope you have a much less busy week coming up!
