Elapsed Time 08:00

Progress Report

Time Read: 2:45

Pages Read: 192. (I'm still reading The Treasure Map of Boys by E. Lockhart.)

Books Finished: None (yet).

Time Blogged: 3:15

Frame of Mind: Although I planned to devote the entire day to the read-a-thon, I decided to take two hours off this morning to attend to some family matters. I'm glad I did. That, however - combined the amount of time I've been spending on blogs - has resulted in not much reading progress so far. I'm feeling good, though. There's a thunderstorm rolling in, and I'm very contented to be sitting in my family room reading a good book!

Cans of Diet Coke with Lime Consumed: 2.

Food Consumed: One Bowl of Lucky Charms Cereal. One Bag of Microwave Popcorn. One Roll of Necco Wafers. One Bowl of Steamed Broccoli with Melted Cheese.


  1. just keep reading,
    just keep reading,
    just keep reading reading reading,
    what do we do we read read,

    Oh ho ho ho i love to read
    when you want to read, you want to read.

    (Sung to the tune of Dory's Just Keep Swimming from Finding Nemo)

  2. Traditional read-a-thon blessing:

    May the bookshelf be there to greet you.
    May all the books appeal.
    May the fridge be full of tasty snacks;
    the words fall soft upon your eyes and until the read-a-thon ends,
    may you always hold a book in the palm of your hand.

    Good luck today!

  3. You're doing great and family matters are important, so it's good you took care of things. I'm also reading, computing, and watching the thunderstorm and hail. Keep going-you're almost done with book number one!

  4. You're done with the first third of the read-a-thon!! I hope you're still enjoying yourself! Keep it up! :D

    Good for you with that broccoli! :)

  5. Your tweet says you're on book #2-good job! Although I remember you saying you weren't going to read Catching Fire until the third one came out. But I think it's a good choice to keep you awake-it's quite exciting.

  6. I'm popping by again to offer some more cheering! Give me an R! Give me an E! Give me an A! Give me a D! What does that spell?! Read! Read! Read!

  7. Good job!!! A thunderstorm and a read-a thon? What could be better?! Happy reading!!!

  8. Looks like you've timed things well. You've spent some time catching up on other reader's blogs and now you can snuggle up with a good book during the thunderstorm.

    Well done so far.

    Happy Reading!

  9. Almost halfway through, and you're doing great! Hang in there!

  10. Today was a good day for reading. The rain this afternoon was insane! (On the west side of the Salt Lake Valley anyway!)
