Read-a-Thon: Hour 5

Here I am, ready for the read-a-thon!

Update: I'm finished with Five Little Peppers. The Peppers are horribly poor, too poor for the children to go to school, too poor to celebrate Christmas, too poor to even buy an envelope to mail a letter in. Then the Peppers meet Jasper and their lives do a complete turnaround.

Five years I've had the Five Little Peppers. I've finally completed it!

Next up: Beasts by Joyce Carol Oates. This one I've only had four years!


  1. Great idea, posting a picture! I'm too lazy...

  2. Oooh, I see Cheever on your pile. I read that book earlier this year and I enjoyed it a lot. I preferred the earlier stories, though.

    I've heard great things about Beasts. Happy reading!

  3. oh, a long-time favorite. i am transported many, many...many years back and many happy reading memories

  4. Love the pictures!! 5 years - I have to say I have books packed in storage that are probably 5 years old...never read. Maybe I will make that a goal of 2009 - to get rid of my own pile...but then again that will probably take 3+ years!! LOL! Good for you getting these off your list!

  5. That book used to be in my grandparents's house, but I never read it.

    I LOVE the pic, btw.
