Yay! I finally finished Grotesque! I was half way when I started the read-a-thon but the print was small, it had been slow going and has been on my nightstand for the last couple of weeks! It feels so good to be finally done! I also read The Sandman: Endless Nights. Would you believe that it's my first encounter with the Sandman books? Beautiful art, it was a great break from reading black text on white pages!
Only 2 hours left, I'm going to take a short break and then decide what to read for the last spurt. Hope everyone is still hanging in there.


  1. Endless Nights was an excellent choice! Enjoy your break :)

  2. Looks like we'll make it through to the end! Yay expats!

  3. Yay for finishing a book! Not long to go now!

  4. Nymeth - It really was! Helped me get a second wind, and it was great to finally read something from the world of Sandman.

    Bybee - Yay for us! :)

    Marg - Thanks. It felt so good to finish that one.
