Hour 11

Minutes: 22 (Other 38 minutes spent updating and completing challenge 11.)

Pages: 13

Current book: Finished up The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury. WooHoo...that means I successfully completed the R.I.P. II Challenge (though I do hope to maybe read another one or two for it). Started a book of short stories by Edgar Allan Poe, but have decided to set that aside for sometime when I'm feeling a bit fresher.

Misc. comments: Dewey's challenge for Hour 11 was to get outside and take a walk. I took her up on it, thus the lack of minutes this hour. I'm pretty sure the dang dog put her up to that one! I must say, it was a good idea though...I do feel a bit refreshed. Though I should add, it nearly led to disaster. I had grabbed some bags to pick up you-know-what, a flashlight so I could see to pick up you-know-what, and snapped the leash onto the dang dog. I was literally pulling the door closed behind us when I realized I hadn't grabbed my keys! I would not have been a happy gal if I'd have locked us out, as no one is due home until late tomorrow afternoon. So I think I'll just be staying put for the rest of the readathon.

Totals tally:

Minutes: 474

Pages: 305

*A Time to Kill by John Grisham (started before Readathon)
*The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury (Chris--It's a great one. And a super short one. Definitely pick it up if you get a chance!)

I agree-that walk was possibly the best mini-challenge yet! I feel much more energised now. :)

I love how you're keeping such precise tallies of time spent reading. I can do page counts, but I'm a slob about time, which spills over into my other life...Happy reading...can you post a pic of your "dang dog"?

Okay, I'm impressed that you're not only reading but also blogging AND supporting other readers. You go, girl! On the non-reading side, I finished the quilting on a quilt I hope to deliver to a wedding next weekend. On to the binding and label tomorrow. Now to go knit and ice my bum knee. I hope you make it through the night. Oh, thanks for the Halloween card. It's so fun! I am definitely not that creative with paper.

But did the walk help? It really perked me up! For all you know, I AM the dang dog. Secretly keeping my own books blog right under your nose.

Chris said...

Oh God! That would've been so bad if you would've been locked out! Phew...

So glad to hear that The Halloween Tree was a good one. I may have to run out and buy that one for the RIP Challenge before it's over. It would make a great Halloween night read! I might do just that!

Congratulations on finishing RIP! I look forward to your review of The Halloween Tree (a great title by the way).
