Read-a-Thon Update Six
11:30pm here means Hour 18.5 and I've just finished The Sandman: Preludes & Nocturnes -- by the last story it is very Gaiman. I've now spent seven hours and forty eight minutes reading and have gotten through 834 pages. That includes 10 pages of Z's bedtime story which I've been told should definitely count toward my total.
We ended up grabbing some teriyaki for dinner which was yummy. I don't know if I'll have any other snacks before bedtime. I might just make some tea in a bit.
Since we're nearing the witching hour, I'm going to start Carlos Ruiz Zafón's The Midnight Palace which should be creepy enough to keep me awake for a while. It's 298 pages so, technically, I should be able to finish it before the end of the read-a-thon ... if I can stay awake, that is!
Are you still up? What are you reading?
Relishing the end-of-day quiet,
