Read-a-thon (also known as SLEEP-a-thon): Update One


It's now 9 AM on Sunday here in Japan. I'm usually a major night owl, and I tried to stay awake last night, really I did, but I just kept dozing off. No matter what I tried (more tea, moving around, having a shower...), my lack of sleep from this past week caught up with me, hard. I finally gave up and went to bed around 1:30 AM, and probably should have just gone to sleep earlier as I really didn't get much reading accomplished last night, or anything else for that matter. If there was a prize for LEAST amount read, or least time spent reading during the read-a-thon, I would most definitely be in the running. But anyway, I'm up now, more or less awake, and ready to start read-a-thoning properly. I hope everyone else is having a great read-a-thon so far. Now, back to my book...

  1. Welcome back and happy reading!!

  2. It's 1.30AM here and I think I'm going to head to bed and pick it up again (later) in the morning (great minds think alike!) I nodded off whilst reading current book and can barely keep eyes open now. My name is on that prize for least amount read ;)

    Good luck with the next half of the readathon!

  3. I hope you can get some reading done! Good luck!

    That bagel looks delicious!

  4. I want to do what the kitty is doing too!!!

    Cheering you on!

  5. I hope that your reading has kiscked off for you now your up and awake

  6. A story is a special thing
    The ones that I have read
    They do not stay inside the books
    They stay inside my head.

    Looks like you're having a great read-a-thon.

    I'll be heading to sleep soon.

  7. My readathon has had some nice SLEEP in it too!
