Elapsed Time 08:30

Progress report ...

Time Read: 4:45 (including 30 minutes of "reading" The Rules of Survival by listening to it on CD while i showered, dressed, and sorted laundry)

Pages Read: 199 (i read from page 160 to the end of Teach With Your Heart: Lessons I Learned From the Freedom Writers, and i'm currently on page 94 of The Eyre Affair)

Pages Heard: about 30 minutes worth :)

Books Finished: 1 (but i was already more than half way through it before the start of the read-a-thon)

Time Blogged: 3:30

Time Doing Other "Stuff": 0:15

Frame of Mind: it's hard to believe that it's already more than one-third over. i've had quite a few distractions with the kids - and i'm trying to get some laundry done too - but mostly i'm happy about what i've been able to do so far.

Cans of Diet Coke with Lime Consumed: 3

Other Food Items Consumed: two hard-boiled eggs and a bagel with provolone cheese; some Chex Mix; two S'Mores (prepared by my personal chef, my 9yo son Sugar Bear)


  1. I've never seen Diet Coke with sounds great!

    I love all your serious time accounting.

  2. S'mores sound like the perfect read-a-thon food. Good job
    Sugar Bear!

    You're doing great...keep up the good work!

  3. Great way to keep track, and excellent reading snacks (especially when prepared by someone else!) I'm (finally) doing some cheerleading! :)

  4. Almost half way through!
    I've gotten a lot of distractions from the kids but it has not been as bad as I thought it would be. Bed time will cut into my reading time. Of course, I could count the books I read to them, couldn't I?

  5. Listening to an audiobook whilst doing other stuff is a great idea for during the Read-a-thon. Has the added bonus of giving the eyes a break as well!

  6. Ooh, I have been wanting to read The Eyre Affair! I trust it provided some good entertainment. Also, smores sound great!

  7. Congrats on your progress! I'm right there with you, reading steadily along. Keep it up!
