Well, I slept for a little over an hour, Jiro napping on the bed with me. It was so tempting to stay there under the covers but I got up and decided to read something with pictures to engage my still sleepy mind. Griffin & Sabine is very short, with beautiful art, so I read through that and then I finished the rest of the stories in The Secret Lives of People in Love. Time is just flying by, isn't it? I'm hungry though, time for some lunch I think - it's after 1PM on Sunday here.


  1. I've been wanting to read Griffin and Sabine for's been sitting on my wishlist for a couple of years now. Hope you're enjoying it!

  2. great work!!!! keep on keepin' strong!!! yay, yay!!! excellent work :)

  3. Have a good afternoon! I'm off to bed soon...enjoy the end of the read-a-thon!

  4. Ooh I want to read Secret Lives of People in Love. Actually it's one of my challenge reads but you know how that goes. Hope your next books are good ones!

  5. I love Griffen and Sabine. Did you get the sequels for the read-a-thon? Only read the first three books. The ones after that are not as good.

    Anyway, I have a short story challenge up at my blog.

    I was late posting it so the deadline is not until the end of the read-a-thon.

    Please stop by if you can.

  6. ohh... the bed is still tempting me!! and it is morning here :D

  7. Chris - The art is lovely. I'm so glad I finally got around to reading it. It's been on my shelf for ages!

    Bethany - You too!!

    softdrink - Thanks. Have a good sleep!

    Iliana - Yes I do know how that goes! I enjoyed most of the stories, so it was a very worthwhile read. Hope you enjoy it when you get to it.

    C.B. James - I actually have all 6 (are there more? I'm not sure) that I picked up at some point. Now that I've finally read the first one I'm sure I'll read the others soon.

    Veens - Thanks! After dragging for a couple hours, even after my nap, I managed to get a second wind. :)
