Day One of this challenge didn't go so well... I only read 63 pages of Quest for Celestia by Steven James. I'm hoping to read a LOT more today!

Nice rainbow!
Is it sad that I haven't heard of any of these books? Gosh, I'll have to remedy that ;)

Don't worry if you didn't read too much today. At least you did read, right? There's always tomorrow.

I know - no progress for me today (yesterday?)! *bites lip* Gotta get reading!

This challenge was so much fun! What a nice rainbow, Mel :)

I didn't get much reading done yesterday either :/ I'm making up for that today!

Melanie said...

Thanks! I agree - at least I did get some reading done. :)

Thanks, Amber! I had fun picking the books for my "rainbow". :)

Melanie said...

Thank you, Crystal! This was a fun challenge! :)

Today, I'm also making up for my lack of reading progress yesterday! Almost done with CINDER.

Hi, Melanie!

Ohhh, what a nice rainbow!! I definitely want to read "Quest for Celestia", since it's a retelling of "The Pilgrim's Progress". That should be very interesting! I also want to read "The Christmas Star". You might have noticed that I ADORE Christmas, from visiting my blog. It's my favorite time of the year!

Don't feel bad about not getting that much reading done today. You'll catch up tomorrow, I'm sure!

C ya for the next mini-challenge tomorrow!! : )

P. S. Lovely quote from Philippians! Just what I needed to see today, too!! God bless you for that!! : )

Melanie said...

Quest for Celestia is SO good! I'm on page 151 and hope to finish it today. :) I love Christmas (and winter!), too!

Thanks! I have my post for tomorrow scheduled. =)
