Read-a-thon Hour 4 Update

Reading Now: Freewill by Chris Lynch

It's been __61__ pages and __87__ reading minutes since my last update.

Total Time Spent Reading: 2 hr 38 min

Cumulative Pages Read: 116

Books Completed: Still 0

Eating?: Sobe Lifewater Fuji Apple Pair and Snyder's of Hanover Buttermilk Ranch flavored pretzels (yum!)

Wow, Freewill is way more intense than I was expecting. The mystery is coming clearer, but I'm still waiting for that obvious tell-all moment where all the questions it's asking work themselves out, and I hope there is one or else I'll probably just end up confused. The 2nd person narration is definitely an interesting device and is definitely what makes this book tick. It's almost like the narrator talking to himself, but it's not illuminating at all, in fact, I trust him less than he seems to trust himself, which is not all that much. I'm sure that by my next update I'll be finished with it, and I sure hope that I'm satisfied.

Nonetheless, I'm sorely in need of a breather, so I think it's time to do a bit of cheerleading and mini-challenging and possibly change into a different set of comfy clothes.

Hope all you readers and cheerleaders are having a good time!


  1. Glad you are enjoying your book so far. Have fun!

  2. I hope it all turns out satisfactory as well...or it can be too frustrating. I haven't heard of this one but I like a good mystery, so I will check in to see how it all turns out. Happy reading...and blogging:)
