Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon: Update #2


I am participating in a Read-a-Thon this weekend. This one is hosted by My Shelf Confessions and Kindle Fever. It is not too late to sign-up if you are interested in participating. There are lots of fun challenges going on and prizes to win!

Update #2: As of Sunday morning, I'm on page 161 of The White Queen.

I didn't get to do a ton of reading yesterday, just like I was expecting. The little one woke up extra early today and took a super short morning nap, so no reading done so far today. Waiting for the hubby to get home so I can get some me-time.

Reading Challenge: BOOK IN PICTURES

Here's is what's going on in my book in pictures:

Elizabeth, a widow with two sons, wins the heart of a newly-crowned king.
King Edward IV - the new Yorkist king of England

Takes place during the time called "The War of the Roses" which were a series of dynastic civil wars for the throne of England fought between supporters of two rival branches of the royal House of Plantagenet: the houses of Lancaster and York
There is a fight between brothers over the throne, led by the Earl of Warwick.

  1. I love that last picture! Thanks so much for joining us for the Read-a-thon we had a BLAST doing it and can't wait to host another (which we'll let everyone know when we d0) :) You made awesome progress (at least by my standards, I am such a slow reader) I can't imagine what it must be like to read with a toddler around (actually I can, since my mom used to baby sit alot LOL - it's hard) so Igive you so much kudos!

    I hope you had as much fun as we did with everything and that you'll join in next time :)
