DAY 1; Saturday 4th August......We have kick off!!
Books read today; Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry.
Books completed so far; No books completed yet, it is only day 1 :)
Today's Progress; I am reading this on my kindle and at the start of the readathon i was already 70% of the way through. Today i read 20%, and there is around 384 pgs so i read approx 76pgs.
Feelings/updates; Today didn't get off to the best start readathon wise because i was super busy with housework and having fun with my 4yr old daughter whilst my partner had taken our son to a football tournament. I did some tweeting in between but reading wasn't my priority. In the afternoon whilst she laid on the sofa to recoup and watch a film, i did some reading woohoo!! I also managed to read in the evening when the children went to bed and i think i did really good progress wise; i really wanted to finish this book today but it was getting late and i was exhausted- only 10% left.
Aim for tomorrow; to finish this book and to read around 60 pages as a total.
Today's challenge; Absolutely amazing challenge, LOVED IT, still ongoing and can be updated till the 12th- post here.

Feelings/updates; Today was a complete day of rest, relaxing, napping, reading and having fun with the kids. I read on and off for most of the day and then had an early night because i was shattered. Really proud that i have managed to read this much.

Feelings/updates; At present in the UK it is the summer holidays from school and they don't go back until the 6th September, so today i got no reading done, no blogging, nothing. Too busy entertaining the kids and then i did a big clear out of bedrooms! I started my reading around 7pm when they were settled and read through till i was dropping to sleep. I wanted to read more because i am engrossed with this book BUT i couldn't. I had to put it down :( I am missing out on Twitter!!!! and on blogging and checking out blogs which is all part of a readathon but with everything going on, i just cannot juggle it all :( something has to give and it cannot be reading, sorry. I will try harder i promise x
