The first casualty is the Stardust readalong which I talked about here. The first discussion stage has already passed and I haven’t even started the book, and I know there isn’t any way that I’m going to be able to fit in reading the whole thing in the time allowed (lots of weekend commitments) so reluctantly giving up on that one.

The second casualty is the 24 Hour Readathon. I took part in that last April and did really well, raising £400 or so for charity, and if I was taking part again this year I’d want to do something similar, but it just isn’t going to be. So, that one parked in the hopes that I can take part in the October event if the dates work out around my holiday plans.

But some good news; I have already read one book for Carl’s Once Upon a Time Challenge and have a couple of others on my TBR pile so that at least seems to be on track.

Bride of the Book God

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence

If you would like to get in touch you can contact me at brideofthebookgod (at) btinternet (dot) com.
