Read-a-thon Hour 13









Minutes spent reading (cumulative): 50 minutes (505 minutes)

Remaining time spent: blogging, commenting

Pages read (cumulative): 26 pages (409 pages)

Currently reading: Sky Burial by Xinran

Completed:
*New Guinea Tapeworms and Jewish Grandmothers: Tales of Parasites and People by Robert S. Desowitz
*We Are On Our Own: A Memoir by Miriam Katin
*The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
*"Where I Live" from Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Other info: I'm afraid to say, I'm really having trouble now. I only read 26 pages in 50 minutes...because I keep finding that I have to read everything over again. And not because it's complicated or unclear, but just because I find myself drifting. I honestly can't remember the last time I've stayed up until 1:00am two nights in a row...and it seems there's a reason for that. Annie, on the other hand, seems perfectly fine. Is that fair? :)

Seriously! I keep checking out Annie's blog and she's just a reading machine! That girls up to 1200 pages and looks like she has no intentions of stopping any time soon! You need a Red Bull Debi :p

Chris,
Isn't she something?!! And you know what...you could pick up any of those books she's read and ask her any little detail about them and she'd almost certainly be able to answer you. She boggles my pathetic little mind.
And you're right...I do need a Red Bull!

505 pages!! Your doing awesome. I'm slowing down a little but not quitting yet (although that bed looks mighty fine right now).
