Read-a-thon Hour 24









Minutes spent reading (cumulative): 50 minutes (910 minutes, which if my brain isn't failing me, is 15 hours and 10 minutes)

Remaining time spent: blogging, commenting

Pages read (cumulative): 54 pages (732 pages, not nearly as many as most people, but a lot more than I would have read without the read-a-thon, right?)

Currently reading: Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. by Judy Blume

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.
*Sky Burial by Xinran
*Boris by Cynthia Rylant

Other info: Is it really over? Well, I'm not really sure why but I feel a lot more out of it than I did last time. In fact, I'm so out of it that I think I just need to leave this computer behind for the day. Well, first I'll go congratulate a few other readers. :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Dewey! And thank you, thank you, thank you to all the wonderful cheerleaders! You have no idea how how much your "cheering" meant!

Congratulations, Debi...you made it! And you had fun, which matters much more than the number of pages read. Plus you got to read all those books in a day...how cool is that?

Get some rest now...you more than deserve it!

Well, I missed most of cheering you on (went out last night, then slept in to fight a cold, then did kendo despite the cold), but I thought about you lots. Way to go! I hope you're sleeping even as I type.

I loved Are you there God, Its me Margaret. My Mom bought it for me when I was middle school aged. :)
