Read-A-Thon Update!

Photobucket


Good morning...is everyone rested or still sleeping in?? =) Well, last night was the first night of the From Dusk Til Dawn Read-A-Thon and it was SO much fun...the east coast got started first and Twitter was abuzz so I was counting down the hours until it was 8PM here on the west coast so I could jump in too! I finished Catching Fire yesterday afternoon so I could kick things off with Mockingjay. My goal was to read the whole thing last night, but the boyfriend got home from work at 11 and turned on the TV so that was a little distracting, but I knew if I left my recliner to go read in bed it would be all over and I would be OUT.

Anyhow, I cheated and started before 8, SO my actual pages read for the read-a-thon would be page 28 to page 244. Not too shabby =) I'm probably gonna finish it today and start something else tonight at 8. Oh, and I still need to hit everyone's challenges!!!

How did everyone else's night go??? Did you read as much as you wanted? (And Heather...drink some coffee tonight, it was my salvation lol!)

I managed 124 pages. Going from page 97 to 221 in Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin. Yay! I did fall asleep at 11:30 though.

I started reading around 9 and went to sleep at 11 because of rotten school. I only managed 72 pages of Hex Hall within that time, which is pretty good I guess. Although tonight I plan on staying up until I finish it.

All nighters seem so much harder now than when I was 20.
Hope you weren't too tired afterwards.

Well, I passed out! I read about 5 pgs after 8 pm. I did read ALL of Mockingjay yesterday though so when I finished I was kind of needing a break. Plus I needed to let it resonate a bit... hopefully I'll do better tonight.
