Hour 12 Update
Hi again! How is everyone doing halfway through?
I took a break to eat dinner with the kids, give a bath to the little girl, and get the kiddos to bed. I'm back to get in a few more great hours of reading!
Read So Far:
1. What are you reading right now?
Nothing. I just finished a book! 2. How many books have you read so far?
3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?
I think Saga. Everyone seems to be completely smitten. 4. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?
Well, I have these two small children who happen to live with me because they are in fact my children. So they interrupt somewhat, but the husband has been wonderful about keeping them occupied most of the time. 5. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?
It feels like it is moving very quickly and very slowly at the same time!
Hour 9 Update
Hello fellow Readathoners! I finished book #2 - Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson. I'm currently snacking on some chocolate and trying to decide on my next read. It might be The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage. Or I might dip into The Best American Short Stories of 2013. Or try Glaciers. Or...I really have no idea! I guess you will have to check back later to find out.
Hour 6 Update
We are 1/4 of the way through, everybody! Woohoo! Right now, baby girl is sleeping and D went to run some errands with his dad and hopefully bring back lunch.
Here are the books David has read so far:
With six books and 754 pages already completed, I think he is kicking my butt!
Here is what I've read so far:
236 pages read
Food: One banana chocolate chip muffin, one pear
Drinks: One cup of coffee, three glasses of water
Looking forward to: finishing this book and dinner in the crockpot (Easiest dinner ever - throw some chicken breasts, can of corn, can of black beans, and jar of salsa in crockpot. Cook on high 3-4 hours at least. Stir in cream cheese until incorporated. Eat with tortilla chips. Yum!)
Here is my picture for the Four Seasons, Four Books challenge!
I'm here guys, I'm here!! (Runs in, awkwardly clutching a laptop and a stack of books)
I got a bit of a late start, but I'm here and I'm ready to read! This year, I think I shall be joined on and off by the intrepid small readers of the family. I'm excited to see what they pick to read today too.
Without further ado, the opening meme:
1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today?
The lovely state of New Jersey and my somewhat messy home (see two small children)
