Miscellaneous comments:
*Finally finished my first book...and I LOVED IT!!!
*It looks like I'm reading much faster than I actually do. While the book I read is 320 pages, it's definitely not your typical 320 pages.
*I'm eating too much. Just like I always do during the read-a-thon. Oh okay, just like I do every day. But it's even worse during the read-a-thon. :)

For when you you have a minute (a minute and ten seconds, to be precise):

Eva said...

Congrats on finishing a book!!

And you can't eat too much fruit salad: it's HEALTHY! lol At least you haven't eaten your body weight in Chex Mix. :p

Becky said...

It sounds like you're having great fun :)

Don't forget food and rest breaks :D

Elizabeth said...

I don't think fruit salad counts as eating too much...

Sounds like you are hitting your stride- keep up the good work!

Jodie said...

Congrats on the book and I agree fruit salad is mostly water, you're just keeping rehydrated.

Trish said...

Isn't that a great feeling, finishing your first book AND loving it? 320 pages is fantastic!

Kailana said...

You loved it, huh? Guess it will be staying on the library list! Happy reading!

Chris said...

Debi! I'm not responding to comments on my blog right now because I'd never get any reading done, but I had to tell you that you must read Skim!!! It's so good! I really think you'll love it.

And EAT! EAT! lol...I'm dying to dig into the rotel dip, but we're getting ready to eat I'll wait :p

You're doing awesome Debs!
