Mood: Already feeling that time is going way too fast, and I'm not getting nearly enough read. Plus I'm a bit distracted by the gas smell still all over our apartment. But for now it's back to Bod in the graveyard.


  1. Good job so far! Those cookies look yummy!

  2. Very delicious looking bagel! It's okay if you haven't finished anything yet. As long as you're enjoying. :)

    The Graveyard Books has to be one of my favorite children's books ever written.

  3. Gas smell? That's not good! But that picture is :) It's like three of my favorite things all put together!

  4. Time sure is flying!

    Sorry about the gas smell :( I hope you enjoy The Graveyard Book!

  5. Will you be reading through the night or take a little cat nap?

  6. Hope you find less distractions in the next hours.. wishing you a happy reading day!

  7. I'm almost done with True Diary and I have Graveyard in my stack but I'm not sure if that will be next or not. Hope you get some napping in tonight!!

  8. I love the picture! It feels like it's going way too quickly for me as well, but at least we're all having fun!!

  9. Happy readig nat, looks good, remember coffee or tea if you become tired.

    Will be back later

  10. Mmm, cookies! I wish I'd thought to have some on hand for today.

  11. Mmmm, those cookies look good!!

    Happy reading, keep up the good work!

  12. Keep going, Tanabata! you're doing great (but I do agree the time goes by FAST during this event!)

  13. Thanks everyone for the cheerleading and support! And yes, the cookies were pretty yummy. :)

    saveophelia - It really is a great book, and the ending ... awww! I had tears in my eyes.

    Chris - LOL. :)

    Nymeth - Time is flying much too quickly! The gas smell is rather annoying although having some windows open a bit for fresh air means it's cool in here and harder to fall asleep, which is probably why I managed to stay up until now, almost 6AM. :P

    Trish - I'm replying to this a little before 6 AM Japan time and I think I'm off for a little nap soon.

    Staci - Yup, I think my bed is calling to me and a nap is in my near future. Sounds like you're doing great!

    Eva - Having fun is definitely the most important part!

    Sylvie - I'm going to have a short sleep and then yes, I think some strong tea will be needed.

    Wendy - The time really does go by much too quickly!
