Dewey's 24-Hour Read-a-Thon: Update #2

BOOKS

Read so far: 1. Blankets by Craig Thompson

Currently reading: Still working on The Magicians by Lev Grossman & Jinx by Meg Cabot. Think I'll take a break and start a MG novel next.

Pages read: 592 (Blankets) + 10 (The Magicians - I wasn't in the mood) + about three hours' worth of Jinx

Reading thoughts? Blankets was absolutely beautiful. Made me cry several times - some sad, some happy tears. Will have to buy a copy (yep, I loved it THAT much) so that I can keep it for always. Not really feeling The Magicians at this time of day, and I'm getting a little tired of Jinx, so I think it's time to take a break and move on...


TIME

Time spent reading 'til now: 6 hours

Time spent online: about an hour


HEALTH

Snacks/meals? Since my last update, I had leftover pesto pasta as a snack. And I walked to get some lunch downtown - a turkey melt with bacon, cheddar and provolone. Yum! + a free chocolate chip cookie and the much-needed Mountain Dew. Currently drinking water.

Exercise? I walked to the library and downtown. It's so warm today!

Sunshine? Have been out in the sun since 2pm (almost 4 hours!) - may have dozed off a little!

Did the TV stay off? No, but I'm not the one watching it! :)


COMMUNITY

Challenges? Just attempted the Where in the World Have You Read Today? challenge, which asks participants to mark their current book's location on a Google map. I'm having a hard time of keeping track which challenges are going on at the moment, and I'm feeling a little lazy, so that's all for me!

Cheering? THANK YOU to everyone who has visited and cheered me along! I am giving myself 15 minutes to find some others to pass along the good cheer. :) Then it's back to reading!
