Readathon: Update 4

Total time spent reading: 5hr 50min
Total pages read: 186
Currently reading: A Proper Education for Girls by Elaine DiRollo (finished!); The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray; The Girl Who Played With Fire

Whew, I don't know about you all, but this whole reading for 6 hours thing is getting a little tough. I'm bailing. Yesterday a friend invited me out for dinner tonight, and I couldn't really say, "Um sorry, I have to sit in my house and read by myself." I know sometimes I perplex people, but you have to draw the line somewhere.

In other news, Kiska says, "Why are you wasting time reading when you could be getting me some of that cat food with gravy out of the refrigerator?" I'm pretty sure the cat is a magical creature who can consume gravy and then manufacture it into hair, which she will then get everywhere possible. Can't deny the beast.

I might be back for another hour after I get home tonight - but if not, happy reading to all of you who are stronger than I, and a huge thanks to all the wonderful cheerleaders who left me comments today.

I'm not so good at clever cheers - just keep on reading, and we'll be here (to keep you motivated - yeah!)

If you're really done, hope you had a great time - if not, hope to see you back again soon :-).

Happy Readathon!

Such a beautiful cat! It's hard to keep reading for a long time. Enjoy your dinner out, and thanks for joining in the read-a-thon.

That's a lot of reading! I love books too, but I'm not sure I could keep up with that much reading time. Are you enjoying the books?

I was in your neck of the woods (DCish), and if I'd had an extra day or so would have tried to arrange a meet up! Instead, I went and blew a bunch of money at Fibre Space in Alexandria. Sorry for the silence- I've been having computer trouble;-)I've read all of your posts in the past year, though! Hope to be back for real here!
