Read-a-thon: Update (4) - Up and at 'em!

It's now 12:30 PM on Sunday afternoon here in Japan.  Yikes! We're already into Hour 16 of the Read-a-thon! Only 8 more hours to go, guys! As you can see I'm up again after having a nice sleep. I slept a bit longer than I wanted to but the bed was so warm and comfy, it was hard to get up. I took Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 with me to bed and I did manage to read for a while before I fell asleep. Then I finished the rest of it off while having breakfast a little while ago.

Actual Time Spent Reading (since last update): 70 min.
Pages Read (since last update): 180

Total Time Spent Reading: 7 hours 30 min.
Total Pages Read: 634
Books Completed: 2 (The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins, Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 - David Petersen)

Food/Drink Consumed:  Tea and toast.


Other Activities:  Zzzzzz.....
Mood:  A little sad that I missed so many great mini-challenges.  And still a little sleepy.  I plan to spend another hour or so blog-hopping and then get back to reading.

Mini-challenge completed (since last update):
Wisdom of Age mini-challenge


  1. reading is most important (spoken like a true cheerleader who has only read 28 pages so far, huh?) Thx for participating in the Wisdom of Age mini-challenge. I have History of Love and am now even more excited to get to it! THX (gosh - I hope it was you that said that but I'm getting too tired to go dblchk...)

  2. You are doing a GREAT job! Sleep is so important - very rejuvenating - keep up the good work!

  3. I debated not actually looking at the mini challenges I missed because I knew I would be disappointed at what I missed! Enjoy the rest of the readathon.

  4. Your tea and toast look yummy! I SO need to get my hands on Mouseguard (both Autumn and Winter). I was admiring Winter the other day at the store.

  5. I totally understand. It's almost 9:30pm here and I'm feeling a tad sleepy. I'll try to manage. Happy reading.

  6. Well done so far. I'm sure you'll feel refreshed after your rest, tea and toast - ready to take on the last few hours.

    Have fun!

  7. Is that the Mouse Guard book on the picture? It looks nice :)

  8. You are really doing great! Isn't the time flying by? I am starting to feel exhaustion setting in, but blog-hopping is helping. Keep up the good work.

  9. It's funny how we feel guilty spending time NOT reading, isn't it? I'm sure the nap was well worth it :-)

    Good luck on this last stretch. I'm sure you'll do great!

  10. Sleep is good.

    You're doing great!!

  11. You're doing a wonderful job, keep it up!

  12. >:-< Kind of sounds like you're bragging a little about that nice sleep! :)

    Regardless, you're doing great!

  13. I was looking at your photo and decided I really like your mug.

  14. Thank you so much for stopping by to cheer me on during the read-a-thon!

    Care - Yes, I suggested The History of Love. It's been a while since I read it but I do still remember that character. I hope you enjoy it!

    Marg - I probably shouldn't have looked but I was curious. Oh well. :P

    Terri B. - The art in both Mouseguard books is really gorgeous!

    Mark David - Yes, it is Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 in the picture. It's a simple story really but it's so lovely to look at. :)

    Diane - The time always seems to fly by much too quickly!

    Trish - LOL. No, not bragging. More like regret. ;)

    Amanda - Thanks. It's one of my Starbucks Japan series mugs. It's the 2009 one.
