Pages Read: 332
Total Pages Read: 808
Total Books Completed: 4 (The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, Mouse Guard: Fall 1152 by David Petersen, Emma, vol. 8 by Kaoru Mori, The Character of Rain by Amélie Nothomb)

Time Spent Blogging: 75 Minutes

Participants Visited: 10

Food/Drink Consumed: I made myself a sandwich for lunch. Then a bit later it was time for snacks.

Mood: Happy to have just completed my fourth book. Yay! But also a little overwhelmed. I'm really in awe of those of you who are reading and cheerleading! How do you do it? Every time I start trying to visit some other participants I keep getting distracted and end up wasting time on the computer without really getting much done. Sigh. So please accept my apologies for not visiting around nearly as much as I would like. And good luck to eveyone who is still conscious for the remainder of the read-a-thon. :)


  1. Keep up the impressive amount of reading you've accomplished for the read-a-thon. Good job! Enjoying following the #readathon trend on twitter. Hope to participate in the next read-a-thon.

  2. I had really wanted to read this year. But work kept me away...again!! Now, it's butt-early in the morning..and I'm cheering on the few remaining people. Glad to see you are still around!!

    Looks like you did a fantastic job!!

  3. hullo there! It's almost 2 quarters past 5 in the afternoon. Just did my update. Hope to finish my 3rd book and read my 4th, too!

    Keep it up.

  4. Mmmm...sandwich! You're doing great--and congrats on finishing book #4!!

  5. Wow, Tanabata...I've been wondering all day if you were still awake. Thanks for the pics of your snacks.

  6. Yummy snacks :D
    Keep up the great work

  7. Great totals. I have no idea how those who read can also cheerlead - I think they must ave books open while wiating for pages to load. Good luck making it til the end (it's so close now).

  8. Anonymous - Thanks for stopping by! I didn't really spend too much time on twitter today, too much of a distraction. If you can join next time, it really is a lot of fun.

    Stephanie - Yay you for cheering us on even after working! One of these times you'll get to participate, I know you will! :)

    Fran - I just popped over to see how you did. Hope you enjoyed the rest of the read-a-thon.

    Thanks Trish!

    Bybee - Well I did sleep for about 3 and a half hours in the middle so I guess technically I'm awake again. The snacks are half the fun!

    Blodeuedd - Thanks for stopping by to cheer me on.

    Jodie - I really have no idea how they do it, they're just super bloggers I guess! :P
