Read-a-thon Update #2: One book finished!

Current local time: 11:15 AM PST

Estimated time spent reading since 5 AM: 4 hours.
I was away from reading for over an hour starting around 6:30 AM (showered. got dressed, walked the dog), and have taken shorter breaks (5-10 minutes at a time) throughout the morning, including checking in on Twitter.

Pages read: 282
I don’t usually track that, but it seems appropriate to the occasion.

Book completed: Love the One You’re With, by Emily Giffin (I started it on Wednesday and was on page 60 at the time the Read-a-thon kicked off)

What now?

  • Return visits from cheerleaders and visit a few other Read-a-thon participants at their blogs
  • Make notes for review of Love the One You’re With
  • Get back to reading again within the hour!

What to read next?
The Hunger Games  by Suzanne Collins

What’s after that?

  • Another update post in a few hours
  • Possible change of reading venue (taking my book to Starbucks)
  • Hoping my husband and the kids are enjoying their day out and about in LA (they went to Universal CityWalk, and may go out to Santa Monica later – it’s a beautiful day, and I’m in the house reading!)

  1. Carrie K – Thanks! I'm just getting started on The Hunger Games.

    Susan – You don't sound at all like a stalker to me, and Read-a-thoners can use all the cheering they can get!

    I have Demo Tapes 2 in the stack for later on…just FYI :-).

  2. The Hunger Games is great!

    Hope all is going well now that we are into the 8th hour of the Read-a-Thon πŸ™‚ This is Louise cheering from Copenhagen, Denmark…

  3. You are doing great. I got a little thrown off schedule this am, but I’m back on track now. Keep up the good work!

    I will surely need a nap a bit later unless, I walk around the house constantly until I fall over from exhaustion…LOL

  4. I'm not participating in this weekend event but wanted to wish you luck!

    I enjoyed Love the one your with, hope you did too.
