Hour Seven Read-a-Thon Update

Well, it's hour seven of the Read-a-Thon but I'm really only coming up on hour four because of my late start. Here's an update --

Local time: 11:15am
Currently Reading: Spellbinder by Helen Stringer
Other Books Being Read in the House: Piranha Pancakes by Ray Friesen (Z)
Pages Read: 125
Goodies Consumed: One mug of Awake tea (sweetened, no milk) and two freshly-baked blueberry scones (Sticky Fingers brand)

I would be reading much faster but Z is reading his graphic novel out loud and it's a bit distracting. We also had to break for a bit of fighting after Z told me to "bring it on".  I brought it and he got karate chopped until he could stand it no longer.

I'll check back in after I finish this book (and take a shower). Snack updates and other random photos will be on twitter (@webereading).

Off to look for an amulet,


  1. Sounds like you are have a great time. Have fun - I couldn't join in this time:(

  2. Remind me not to tell you to "bring it!" You sound ferocious :-P Glad you're having fun and enjoying tea and scones, yummy.

  3. Scones are a wonderful thing anytime, but combined with books and readathons...oh my! Nice. Have a happy readathon.

  4. You're doing great!! Hope you're having fun!

    Happy reading!

  5. Diane - I'm sad about that too! This is only my second time but I'm happy to be a part of it.

    Cass - Haha!

    Bybee - The only problem is not eating more than are good for me!

    Nea - Thanks!
