Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon: Update #1

Good morning, everyone! I got a little late start (though much earlier than a normal Saturday!) today, but I am now fed and showered and ready to read, read, read. I know that I said I'd try to stay offline, but after visiting some readathon participants' blogs, I realized that half the fun is sharing what you're reading with everyone else. So, here I am! I'll be popping in every now and then to quickly update, visit some blogs, and maybe join a challenge or two. Thanks to everyone already for all the well wishes - happy reading to you all!

BOOKS

Read so far: 0 - But I started listening to Jinx by Meg Cabot while making/eating breakfast


Currently reading: Just about to start Blankets by Craig Thompson - it needs to go back to the library today!


Pages read: Not sure - but I've listened to an hour and eight minutes of Jinx


Reading thoughts? This day is going to fly by, I need to get reading.



TIME

Time started: 9:00am CST (only 2 hours late...)

Time awake: 2 hours

Time spent reading 'til now: 1 hour, 8 minutes

Time spent online: 15 minutes


HEALTH

Snacks/meals? Cheesy eggs on multi-grain bread, orange juice


Exercise? Does washing the dishes count?

Sunshine? Not yet, but I'm going for a walk later.


Did the TV stay off? Almost - I checked the Weather Channel...

More exciting updates later!

Looks like you are making great headway
Keep up the reading, don’t let that head sway
Eyes on the page and coffee in hand
You’ll be entering a new land.

GO READER!

I like books
I really do.
Books with stories
And pictures, too. (author unknown)

Enjoy all the people you meet and places you go today.

Readathon! Readathon! Rah rah rah!
Readathon! Readathon! Rah rah rah!
Readers got the books
I’ve got a cheer
You get to read all day
I know you’ll persevere
YAY!
