Other info: Yep, I think that little nap did me good. I'm waking up more and more now. Hope that means my reading speed will pick up a little over these last few hours. I think Annie may be down for the count though. She decided to take a little nap when I did...and she wanted me to wake her when I got up. Well, I did try. She opened her eyes, and I asked if she wanted to get up and read some more. She looked at me and said, "I'm not sure." And was immediately zonked again. I didn't have the heart to try waking her again. I just feel bad that she didn't get to check in with her last update as the internet was out then. Guess she can just add those last pages she read when she does get up.

Look at you with four books down! I think it is amazing that Annie stayed up as late as she did. Since your timezone is so late, hopefully she'll be able to get in some more reading this morning. I'm grateful for that (central time zone), but I also would like for this shindig to be over already! :) Just kidding...sorta

I'm very glad to hear that the nap did you good, Debi. And like Trish said, it's amazing that Annie stayed up for so long!
