24-Hour Read-a-Thon: Update #5 (15 Hours In)

DSC_0733

Here are my stats thus far:

Reading: I just finished The Return. What a treat! I really enjoyed it. I am now about to begin my book club’s pick for this month, In the Time of the Butterflies. Since it is a heavier read I might alternate it with Betsy-Tacy and Tib.

Pages Read Since Last Update: 114

Total Pages Read: 577

Completed Books: Cheerful Weather for the Wedding, The Return.

Nibbly Foods Eaten: I ended up eating the spaghetti. I feel like such a P-I-G but all of my food choices have been healthy today. The pasta was whole wheat, the tacos were the healthy variety, the hummus is naturally healthy but I feel as if I have been eating all day long. I think I need to drink a bit more water.

Random Tidbits: I retreated to the garage (again) and it was nice and quiet there! However, it’s time for me to enter the house and assume my motherly duties so that I can get the kids tucked in and down for the night. This day has flown by! Has it gone by quickly for you too? I am quite antsy right now and do not feel tired at all. I am thinking that the 10 o’clock hour will be the toughest for me.

Ti’s Comfy Factor (5 being comfy): 5 I am pretty darn comfy. Jammies are on.

Next Update: My next update will be around 11pm (Pacific), unless I fall asleep but I seriously doubt that will happen.

  1. You are doing a great job. Keep reading. 577 pages is wonderful.
    Karin

  2. It’s astounding, time is fleeting
    Reading takes its toll
    But listen closely, not for very much longer
    You’ve almost met the goal

    I remember doing the Read-a-thon
    During those moments when
    The blackness would hit me and sleep would be calling
    Let’s do the readathon again…
    Let’s do the readathon again!

    It’s just a book in your hand
    And then a flip of the page
    With your eyes on the words
    You let your mind engage
    But it’s the cheerleaders that really drive you insane,
    Let’s do the readathon again!

    Your book is dreamy, or hot and steamy
    It stars a banshee, or no one at all
    It’s in another dimension, there’s no comprehension
    Oh no, there’s none at all
    With a bit of a page flip
    You’re suddenly on a space ship
    And nothing can ever be the same
    You’re strung out on cookies, you sound like a Wookie
    Let’s do the readathon again!

    Well I was strolling through the bookstore just havin’ a look
    When what should I espy but my next book
    It shook me up, it took me by surprise
    It had a sale tag and Care gave it 5 pies.
    It lured me in and I felt a change
    Time meant nothing, never would again
    Let’s do the readathon again!

  3. I love the picture on the cover of “In the Time of the Butterflies.” I’ve heard many good things about that book. I hope those jammies don’t induce your eyes to shut!

  4. Wooo! Keep going, you’re doing great :)

  5. It is midnight and we are still going strong here–wondering if you have made it this long? jammies on here too!
    *smiles*
