Miscellaneous comments:
*Felt like I got in some good reading there, but now I'm getting drowsy again. Think I'll be fixing a snack to start Carl's RIP mini-challenge. I've got a problem though...I'm really sucked into the book I'm reading, but I'm not quite sure if it fits RIP standards. It's pretty much about dueling psychotic serial killers...think that counts?

I'd say dueling psychotic serial killers count as horrifying!

By the way, you made me nearly spit out my water with your comment on "those offended by murder..." I had to post about it :p

You're doing so good Debi!

You can do it! Not long until Carl's mini challenge now!

Wouldn't it be great if pet care and reading time could coincide. I hope to have my cat trained enough to sit on my lap for a while soon.

In the meantime, I have a little challenge up at my blog.

I am very late getting it posted so it lasts to the end of the read-a-thon.

Please feel free to stop by.

I'd say it counts too!

Dueling pyschotic series killers! Probably. Sounds really creepy. 100 pages this last bout--great work!! Hope you find something yummy to eat. My stomach just really wants me to go to bed... :(

Dueling psychotic killers are pretty spooky all right. Also, you read something spooky earlier!
