read-a-thon update 6

Since last post:

Time spent (since last update):

--Reading: 90 minutes

--On computer (blogging, commenting/cheering, mini-challenges): 30 minutes

--Other (pet care, cooking, etc.): 20 minutes

Between the covers:

--Number of pages: 78 pages

--What I read: Started Double Cross by James Patterson. I just wasn't up for starting something else that was going to make all emotional, so I went with a book that I knew would be quick, easy, and suspenseful...but wouldn't have me crying.

Down the hatch:

--Food: three pieces of frozen pizza, a mini peppermint patty

--Drink: 2 glasses of ice water


Time spent:

--Reading: 500 minutes

--On computer (blogging, commenting/cheering, mini-challenges): 155 minutes

--Other (pet care, cooking, etc.): 65 minutes

Between the covers:

--Number of pages: 395 pages.

--What I've read: Finished last 10 pages of Dracula by Bram Stoker. Read The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.

Down the hatch:

--Food: piece of raspberry coffeecake, 2 soft pretzels, 2 M&M cookies, 3 pieces of frozen pizza, a mini peppermint patty

--Drink: two large mugs of coffee, a glass of Coke, a huge mug of hot tea, 2 glasses of ice water

Miscellaneous comments:
*Glad I left the Penn State game on after all!
*Am regretting the decision to post how much I'm eating.

LOL! I'm loving getting a list of everything you're eating...if it makes you feel any better, I just put a corndog in the oven :p You're doing awesome Debi!

I've heard that the Cross books would have made great read-a-thon books (according to my coworker).

And I love hearing about what you're eating. I'm pouring the can of honey roasted peanuts down my throat as I type. ;)

It's great how you're grazing all day. I'm sort of doing that now, too, though I didn't eat anything between breakfast and lunch.

Remind me next time (April!) to steal your updating template!

after seeing that you were posting what you were eating, i decided to do the same. just for historical purposes. :)

i think James Patterson is a good read-a-thon pick; lots of dialogue, so it's quick reading - as well as suspenseful. i wish i'd gotten one of his from the library this week.

I'm glad you liked The Graveyard Book... I'm saving it for later.

Peppermint patties are the best treats ever. I used to read James Patterson a lot maybe I will start again.

I love the food list, but did find your regret about posting it hilarious!

I think you've covered the major food groups here - sweet, salty, crunchy, and gooey, and the mint is like brushing your teeth.
Keep having fun!

Yes, another emotional read after The Graveyard Book would be too much for me too!

I love the food totals :D
