Happy Readathon Day everyone!
I’m going to plonking all my Readathon updates right here on this post, hopefully every few hours or so – so please check back later for more! I’ll also be on Instagram in case you are too. Oh and this year is the first time I’m cheering! I’ll be doing that on Instagram.
Hour 16 update
Phew. The kids are finally in bed – it’s just after 8pm here. I haven’t managed to do much reading today. A comic (Bitch Planet Vol 1), a YA book (Kira-kira) and am halfway through another comic (The Collector). But hopefully now I can get more reading done. I have been doing a bit of cheering here and there on Instagram. Hopefully I can do another round later but I would really like to read now that things are quieter.
Hour 10 update
So I’ve been reading picture books to the kids. There’s been a lot of Thomas stories, some Blues Clues, a lovely little book Bee-Bim-Bop! that I just bought this morning at the library book sale (see Hour 7 update).
Hour 7 update
So I haven’t been reading anything for the last two hours!!! Instead I was at the library book sale buying some books!
Mini challenge by Unabridged Chick
Dig through your shelves and share with us a book cover you’d like to escape into! Doesn’t matter if the subject, plot, or genre isn’t typically your thing; in this case, we’re totally judging the book by its cover!
Leave a link to your Cover Escape (posted to your blog, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram) so we can all oooh-and-aaah over your selection.
This is my pick. A book cover of high-rise flats probably isn’t most people’s idea of “escape” but it makes me think of home, of Singapore, where this book is set, and which is indeed full of high-rise apartment buildings like these. I haven’t been back to Singapore for two years so I’m looking forward to our trip there soon!

Eating and drinking: smoked salmon and cream cheese on homemade baguette. The star-sprinkled butter cake my son and I made yesterday. And tea lots of tea.
