This is it guys. It’s the final stretch. The last hurrah. I am starting to really struggle for time in terms of writing and updating posts so I have decided to do a joint weekend post. My travelling week is so crazy that reading time is at a serious premium, so if I do get the chance, I shall update accordingly. I sadly don’t have time to do the Twitter chat (I seriously could cry about this as it’s one of my favourite things about this readathon, but sadly Ohio is capturing my attention and heart to much! I am also bowing out of the day 6 challenge, but would like to say thanks for embracing the challenges I did earlierr this week with such gusto!!
When you think of big American cities, rich in culture, art, sports, it’s easy to see why the major cities of New York, Boston, Chicago, L.A. come straight to mind. When you think of famous buildings, bridges, arenas, fields, it’s easy to see why the brain jumps to Fenway Park, Chrysler building, Brooklyn bridge.
For the next 8 days, I’m exploring some of the cultural hotspots of the Mid-West, kicking it off in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Guys, it’s Friday already. Where does the time go? I’m getting sad and nostalgic already! Today my updates are coming from Pittsburgh, PA and Columbus, OH. Check me out for a multi-city, multi-state, multi-country readathon! I’m hosting today’s challenge today as well, but I sadly don’t have access to my book shelf.
So I’m sitting at the airport all excited and I thought I’d try and squeeze in some last minute blog posts. My updates will probably drop in frequency now, but I’ll still be reading!
So, today is the big day! I fly to the US tomorrow, but I am off to London tonight ready for the early morning get up and flight time. I’m getting super excited now, just trying to stay a bit calm! I’m hoping to get quite a bit of reading done today if I can, but we’ll see how that goes later on!
First day gone already, it’s not long before I moan about how quick this week goes, so prepare yourself. I hope you all had an enjoyable Day 1, I made some OK progress, hope you did too! I wish I had been able to take part in the twitter chat, but Time Zone conversions just didn’t make it possible.
Today is the last day for you to sign up and get involved, so if you’re interested and want to know more:

Here we are again friends. Our favourite readathon is back, and I have already been reading (check me out, eh!). I have set out some fairly rigid and optimistic challenges and TBR list, so we’ll see how it goes.
If you have any questions throughout the readathon, I’m a Bout of Books expert, so please feel free to comment on my posts, or tweet me and I’ll try and help!
