Elapsed Time 00:00

Here we go ...

My 17yo daughter Jelly Bean (aka Aoi Sakura of Books Are My Friends) is going to join me - and I think we're ready! She and I went to the library last night to stockpile a few extra book choices. First up for me will be continuing with The Devil in the White City, which is the June read for Book Buddies and for which, of course, I'm behind schedule. As we start to read, Jelly and I are going to prepare a quick, yummy breakfast of hard-boiled eggs and toasted bagels with bacon and provolone cheese.

Good luck to all the other read-a-thon participants, and a big thanks to the cheerleaders and other helpers! (If you're just stopping by and want to know more about what's happening, check out our host Dewey's first post of the event here.)


  1. How nice that your daughter is joining you. I hope you both have a great time :)

  2. I can't wait to hear what it was like to read with your daughter...I'm sure you two will have a blast!

  3. Good luck to you and Jelly Bean (I was just over at her blog, too)! I think it's great you guys are doing this together and maybe you can help each other stay awake ;>). I'll stop by later to see how the two of you are doing...Have fun!
