June Read-a-thon Update: End!

And now it’s over. But there’s another beginning on July 10th and running to August 1st; I might do that one as well, because this has been loads of fun!

Final page counts for the event (at 12.00a, July 1st):

  • 40 pages of Partial List of People to Bleach by Gary Lutz. Notes: no update.
  • 90 pages of Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke [trans. M.D. Herter Norton]. Notes: finished.
  • 108 pages of The Rose That Grew From Concrete by Tupac Shakur. Notes: finished.
  • 173 pages of Faces at the Bottom of the Well by Derrick Bell. Notes: finished.
  • 8 pages of Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman. Notes: no update.
  • 9 pages of Moby Dick by Herman Melville. Notes: no update.
  • 66 pages of Requiem for a Paper Bag by Davy Rothbart [Ed.]. Notes: some of the stories are mildly entertaining, but overall, I don’t think this book was worth much more than the penny (plus shipping) I paid for it.
  • 43 pages of The Works of Edgar Allan Poe by Edgar Allan Poe. Notes: no update.
  • 19 pages of The Memoirs of Vidocq, Principal Agent of the French Police Until 1827 by Eugène François Vidocq [Trans. by H. T. Riley]. Notes: no update.
  • 61 pages of The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. Notes: bit amazed I’ve never read this before, honestly. It’s loads of fun, and I can’t wait to finish it (which task shall be complete, hopefully, by class-time on Thursday).

Running page count: 617
