Elapsed Time 18:30

Progress Report

Time Read: 8:00

Pages Read: 610. (That's about 76 pages an hour. Hooray for quick reads!)

Books Finished: 3. (I've read A Crooked Kind of Perfect by Linda Urban and The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams, in addition to finishing Nocturne by Harrison Gradwell Slater. Right now I'm working on Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta.)

Time Blogged: 6:00

Frame of Mind: My eyes are really buggy right now, but I think I could last at least another couple of hours, probably more, if I didn't keep thinking about what the read-a-thon aftermath will mean. With everything I have to do next week - especially given that I started the read-a-thon in a tension-filled state of fatigue - I just don't know if it'd be wise to miss my sleep tonight. I guess if you don't hear back from me before the elapsed time of 24:00, you'll know that I've gone to bed.

Cans of Diet Coke with Lime Consumed: 6.

Food Consumed: One bowl of Lucky Charms cereal. One bag of microwave popcorn. Light lunch of ham, hard-boiled eggs, and French bread. Five cream cheese-jalapeno poppers. Two pieces of garlic French bread pizza. Some Cadbury Mini Eggs. Late dinner from Cafe Rio (grilled steak enchilada, rice, black beans, chips, and queso dip). Some Red Vines. Part of a roll of Necco Wafers.


  1. Absolute wonderful stats! Plus, I must say I miss Cafe Rio :)
    You're doing well!

  2. Yum! Cafe Rio! We have one of those here in Gilbert, AZ. What a fun dinner :o)

    Looks like you're doing superbly! You can totally make it to the end of Hour 24, totally. Go you! Woohoo!

  3. Your snacks and meals sound so good! I've been talking about food a lot on my readathon updates, too.

    Keep up the good work!

  4. My eyes are starting to get a little buggy too, and I know I should get to bed so I can be energetic for my boys tomorrow, but I've been having so much fun cheering people on. Hope you have a great rest of the read-a-thon, no matter how long that may be!
