Classics Club Readathon Today!

It is The Classics Club Readathon today, here are my answers to a few questions posed over on the Classics Club blog.

Name and Blog: Crafts4others

Snacks and Beverages of Choice: tea, water and perhaps some coffee. I previously didn't think too much about snacks.

Where are you reading from today? at home snuggled with a nice paperback book.

What are your goals for the Readathon?  I hope to either get halfway through or even finish one or two books.

What book(s) are you planning on reading? Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott and perhaps Wives & Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell.

Are you excited? Yes, although I haven't been feeling good today so hopefully that will change soon, so I will be able to accomplish my goals.

If you want to feel out the survery or participate in the readathon follow this link.


  1. Sorry your not feeling well, but at least it will be easier for you to snuggle up on the lounge with a good book all day!
    Happy reading from Sydney Australia
    Brona's Books

    1. Thanks, I didn't get as much done as I wanted too. Hope you were able to met the goals you had for the readathon.

  2. Hope you're doing okay! I was a bit under the weather, but not so much as to be unable or unwilling to read - it was actually just the "right" amount of ill... made staying home and reading all day seem perfectly valid! Ivanhoe and Wives&Daughters - haven't read either, but I love Gaskell & should definitely read Walter Scott at some point. Good luck!

    1. Thanks, have you read Lark Rise to Candleford by Gaskell? There is a BBC tv series based on her book and it is really good if you like period piece shows. I didn't realise until I started reading that Ivanhoe is part of a series. Hope your feeling better as well.
