Read-a-Thon Update: Calling It a Night

Well, I made it through Hour Twenty-One which would seem like more of an accomplishment if I had read more today! I only got through about 350 pages -- half of Thomas the Rhymer and half of Fire and Hemlock. But, as they say, such is life. I hope that everyone that participated had a great time and I know I will be much more successful in October when there's not a beautiful sunny day that is calling my name and shiny new birthday presents to look at.

I will be taking F&H off to bed with me now and I'm sure I will read for at least a while longer because I don't want to put it down!

Until I fall asleep with my finger between the pages,


  1. Well done for making it so far! I do think it's a bit easier in October when you can hole yourself up somewhere snug. Enjoy your sleep!

  2. You made it far, far longer than I did. I toddled off to bed around 11:30, because I knew I had to greet at church this morning. Gone are the days, sadly, when I could read all night. Don't your eyes burn after awhile? :)

  3. Thanks, Ellie! I'm already looking forward to October!

    Bellezza - My eyes were not happy by the end. I'm going to have to look into getting some reading glasses, I think. :)

  4. I can't believe you stayed up 21 hours!! YIKES! I hope to try the fall read-a-thon. It has been awhile since I did one and I'd love to try again.
